  1. Basically, Oversteps is solid to chill to. But don't expect to be entertained/enthralled in the slightest.

    Although Autechre;a futristic manifesto has remnianed largely static for tow decades, the xylophone massacre of "O=0" and trippy space-carnival collage "d-sho qub" provide welcome glimmers of pleasure and humour during an otherwise rigorously intellectual labraroery experiment. [Apr 2010, p.81]
  3. Their sonic structures remain complex, and experiment still take precedence over entertainment. [May 2010, p.115]
  4. The songs are usually too singular to fit together in any immediately recognizable way. Instead, structure and emotional resonance emerge slowly from a mix of disparate sounds, providing a soundtrack capable of transforming the mundane into the alarming, then the consoling, and back again.
