I used to really, really hate and/or not 'get' this album. rBut then I got some good headphones and stopped being a little bitch.

'Confield' makes me feel numb - or dead, even, or at least what I think death would feel like. It's hard to know if it was meant to conjure such feelings, for the spurge of beeps and clunks within could mean anything really. Glitching and groaning, it fumbles along like a dying machine, though there are hints of a human touch - a smothered melody here, a shuddering groove there. 'Enjoyable' would probably be the wrong word to describe the project, chiefly because ... well ... I don't think I 'enjoy' it at all, at least not in any conventional sense. Instead, I think it's more accurate to say that this is one of the most interesting musical pieces I've encountered in a long while, a fascinating work of art that really tests the boundaries of what the term 'music' can cover. It's sinister, nocturnal, claustrophobic, dissonant, hypnotic and alien: an assembly line, a silhouette following you home at 3am, anaesthesia and a space odyssey, all at once. It's odd.

The sound quality of these folks is evident, and questioning would even be hypocritical by the current sound standards. Often, the duo hits the hand in an incredible way, and at other times, they does not seem to know in what field they want to act. "Confield" has a small identity problem on some occasions, even if it does not compromise the whole composition. Thus, it is clear to understand that one of their best works is quite experimental and transitional, and seeing through this spectrum, the album is fantastic.

I have the utmost respect for anyone as a writer if they can write great reviews about albums like Confield, albums that can rend many a listener speechless due to their practically indescribable nature. Whereas albums like Amber sounded like a cold robot trying to emulate and process warm and comforting sounds, Confield throws it all to the wind and embraces the sound of that same cold robot, well... ...doing what hyperion said. The lauded rhythmic work here is absolutely astonishing, with every last blip or skitter being used with an uncanny precision. For what it's worth, especially on songs like "Pen Expers" and "Bine", songs held together by their huge density and eerie, sometimes almost hard to catch synths, this is actually one disturbing experience. Sure, there's semblances of better feelings on "Eidetic Casein", but on the whole it's shaded darkly though the colors are numerous. Not the record you want to start with if you're just getting into Autechre, but a fantastic reward if you're patient enough. Also, I'm not entirely sure if it actually is, but it does sound like there's someone snoring during "Uviol".
