  1. The results are not for the faint of heart – beats stutter uncomfortably, disappear without warning, and practically scratch out the walls of your speakers from the inside.

    Most is all too predictable and finds Autechre stuck in an experimental rut. [May 2005, p.121]
  3. As a strategy, Untilted's severe deconstruction plays like a non-starter; as a working method settled on by an act from whom fans would expect nothing less, it sounds like Autechre reshuffling terms that are very much its own.
  4. It's likely to alienate all but their most ardent fans.

    From beginning to end, just the sort of album to blow away any doubts that the nonbelievers would have about autechre. Alot of people seem From beginning to end, just the sort of album to blow away any doubts that the nonbelievers would have about autechre. Alot of people seem keen on bringing up Confield as comparison to anything that ae have done, when really Confield is only comparable to itself. Everything is ALWAYS new. Even when old ideas are reinterpreted, they can only come out more twisted than the original concept. This album just kicks an insane amount of ass without an apology. Full Review »
