Review Summary: 10001110101

When sonically viewing the purpose of Autechre, the quintessential component of their juxposition is the deep and intellectual quarrel amongst its home listeners. (If you find this language to be too gran·di·ose (ɡrandēˈōs) (adjective) to follow, you are incouraged to avoid this record (this is IDM (Intellegent Dance Music) after all)). When us home listeners congrogate enthusiastically to recollect the experience, the conversation is usually that of utmost intellegence, worded parallel to the syntax of this review.

Thus here is the track-by-
[i]confield.[/ i]
-track review:

VI Scose Poise - is the perfect song to begin Confield with because it is the first song on the album. At 6 minutes (IDM (intellegent Dance Music) is not usual in song lengths). The song takes a bowl and spins it cyclically while there is ambience. 5/5

Cfren - cold, and calculating 5/5

Pen Expers - This is the song most of you know from the primate experiments (confield played to monkeys to illicit evolution.) the results speak for themselves - 5/5

I would like to interject the track - by -track review to insert the feeble notion that if you have not figured out the pattern in the song titles so far, relisten to the maintained balance and control of EP 7

Sim Gishel - analytical & geometric while simutaneously not analytical nor geometric. How does it do that and still remain only a 4.5/5? Thats the most appreciatable part, and perhaps the cold justification of the song, so its commonly viewed by the IDM (Intellegent Dance Music) community as a 5/5 song. 4.5/5

Bine - Bine is a paradoxical paradox in that it isn't even truly a paradox, just appears to reveal itself in that way. The intellegence of the cold, calculated slurping and glitching noise is just inmeasurable, coupled with the fact that it is a dance song. 5/5

Eidetic Casein - Autechere home listeners, (neigh, home listeners of confield), know to find beauty in what is indigistable. This song is actually really distaseful, and thus magneficent 5/5 (IDM scaled)

Uviol - Uviol shares the pulsing motif of the cold, calculating *beep-beep* in the latent darkness of the catacombs of Uviol; both calculating and cold. But even beyond its calculation and coldness, it is freezing and strategic. Truly palatable 5/5

Lentic Catachresis - Its no stonal coincidence that Lentic Catachresis is the last song of the album, as it is track 9 on a 9 track album. But significantly beyond this algebraic proof lies the inheretence of Autechre's benefit of being intellegently alluring. Is nine not a prime number? No, and thus ends on an odd number that is not prime, Lentic Catachresis, track 9. The calculation feels substantially more cold when you realize its true (source: wolframalpha.idm).

Despite being detrimentally able to produce a track-by-track review of the seminal confield, there is no way to describe an album as fervently superficial as the definitive Confield. It is convenient that it resides its vivid classification of the genre IDM (Intellegent Dance Music) because it is a subcategory surplussed with excessive cold calculations. Remote and distant labyrinthine of vertexes? Homelisteners are all too familiar. Even beyond its resistance to replication (CD burners crash when attempt is made, or the album is sampled (ape minded technique) ), perhaps it is unsurprising that Autechre has simply sold this album as a new album every year to the ignorant masses, because it it just that intellegent.
