    Certainly nothing as special as say, LP5, and Confield. Of course, since Autechre have such a consistently good back catalogue, a few mishaps here and there are excusable. It's a confused, drawn out and somewhat shapeless record with a few moments of strength, such as the last track.

    By the time we reach "Surripere" we could be listening to a toughened-up Aphex Twin, poignant harmonies battling against oblique but splintering beats. [May 2003, p.92]
  2. An unfortunate combination of familiar methods, beats and timbres won't overshadow the ultimately uninspiring music.

    Draft's second half will hold more sway over those pining for the minor-key melodiousness of works through Tri Repetae++. [Jun 2003, p.93]
