Sean Booth, Rob Brown. Untilted is the eighth studio album by the British IDM duo Autechre. The record was released 18 April 2005 in Europe and 19 April 2005 in North America by Warp Records, while Beat Records released it in Japan on 9 April 2005. The album charted at 199 in the UK. The cover art for the album was created by Alex Rutterford. A phony version of the album was leaked on file sharing networks simultaneously to the actual album's promotional leak.

Originally hated it but now 15(+)yrs later I now see it as a experimental masterpiece. A true architecture in listen in sound, music and abstract that rewires the brain!

Este es el álbum que menos me gusta de Autechre :cLa única canción buena es Iera. Nada mas :/

Pues regresando, no es tan malo el álbum, solo que no es de todo satisfactorio :/Le daré en realidad un 3/5

I just listened to the closing piece again (Sublimit) in 10 years, and I was blown away by how much tension is contained in this piece. Not aged at all, perfect !

A big return to form, their most accomplished effort since LP5. Building their career in the 90's Booth & Brown took hardcore beats to uncharted territories in the process, and this album is some kind of return to those roots, a joyful rhythmic fiesta!

Quite certainly the worst Autechre LP and in my opinion the only black sheep in their fairly spotless catalog. In not sure at all what was the artistic goal with this album. Untilted seems to focus on two closely related things, rhythm and repetition glitches and leave out all else. This is evident right from the beginning as the opening track LCC lays the foundation of what's to come, surprisingly dull percussions repeated in banal sequenced with some atonal drones layered beneath. Melody is only secondary, if that.The tracks Ipacial Section, Pro radii and Iera thankfull rectify some of these issues, in particular providing interesting percussion instruments for a change and otherwise slightly more engaging timbral palette as well. Still even these cuts that are probably the best on the album almost exclusively seem to focus on rhythmic acrobatics that frankly are some of the least interesting in Autechre's entire repertoire.Augmatic Disport, Fernium and The Trees mostly fit into the same category, but manage to be even less absorbing for the most part. Fermium is a noteworthy exception though in the sense that it does include a melody, which is actually quite interesting, but once again the mindless repetition reinforces the humdrum quality of the album. These tracks also make painfully clear how barren the whole album is spectrally.Sublimit closes the album in an apt manner. It's ugly, long and drawn out, quite similar to the opener actually. it concentrates all bad aspects of the album well. I fail to understand why this album is lauded so much by the fans and casual listeners alike. The mix, instrumentation, melody and writing are all significantly worse than say both the album that preceded and succeeded this one. Not recommended at all but someone else probably will anyway.

Those who dismiss the latest bunch of Autechre records might very well just showcase the limits of their imagination.

So I'm not a huge Autechre fan, I did like Amber and Move of Ten however I find around around 90% of their content to be unlistenable. However this isn't the case with Untilted, it may sound like a mess of beats at first but the ambiance and other content that plays quietly in the background makes it all sound orchestrated as they work in conjunction with each other. Overall its definitely worth checking out either for Autechre haters.

Another satisfying album, it follows a similiar style to "Darft 7.30", it starts with a music "LCC" that has an outstading melody, what follows next are musics that will take you to strange places with surreal happenings, i also love "Iera" its a real dark music and "Sublimit" wich ends with a morbid tune. Great release with full madness ;)

I'm smiling inside my mind thinking HOW MANY people around the world have GET THE FULL TRICKERY wich is sealed and stuck inside every track of this album !A headphone will help but only at max volume level some hidden treasure comes out!TOTAL KILLER PERCUSSIVE ALBUM, here our duo took it with fun to re-invent the electronic percussion-felling, away from disco and IDM whateveryoumaycallit, totally groundbreaking and astoundingly NEW.On the very Top Level with some ultra "away from that usual 4 parallel layers" to be listened to, sometimes even 5 or 6 interfilling secretative sounds.Just try the vinyl version at maximum volume but equally the cd has its point.aa ahh...(listening to this music)..what?...a voice ...do you hear that? ...?!

I hated this album when it came out. Absolutely hated it. 6 years later it's one of my favorite ae albums. I don't know what happened.

this is perhaps the only autechre record that actually sounds the way that so many people have criticized them for sounding; i'm convinced that the difference in aesthetic is due solely to the mix.something happened to electronic music in the early 2000s. i'm not sure what brought it on as i'm not completely immersed in the genre, i just follow a few acts i really like. the move towards a more stripped down, minimalist approach may have begun as a reaction to the "indulgent" nature of late 90s electronic music and manifested itself as some kind of electronic punk rock reaction. it may have been a response to the commercialization of the genre as it is much cheaper and faster to produce and market minimal techno than it is to market elaborate idm records. whatever it was, autechre must have been listening because there is a distinct move away from conventional melody on this disc.that's not to say that the record is full of simple beats because it's not. there is more repetition than usual, but the repeated patterns are actually fairly complex; this is unquestionably "intelligent dance music". yet, the bass drums have that deep bass-merged-with-drum sound to them that dub music has, the melodies are rather robotic and the harmonies are just bluntly nearly gone. for the first few listens, that will probably be massively disappointing but after you've heard it a few times everything starts to fall into place. there's a lot of detail in the mix in regards to stereo positioning that only comes out when listened to through headphones. i should explain a little...pretty much all of the major sound recording software packages nowadays have surround sound plugins that allow the artist to actually program depth into the aural field. what that means is that it's not only possible but rather elementary to mix a record so that when the record is being played back through headphones the vocals sound as though they are being recited very close to you and the rest of the band sounds as though it is playing far away in the distance. this record sounds as though autechre have gone to town with this new toy, moving instruments around through a projected three dimensional aural soundscape at will and at times even randomly.the result of these sound design decisions is initially very disorienting because the sound is so saturated with movement in this regard that it is not even initially obvious that what is "wrong" with the cd is that it exists three-dimensionally; initially, it just sounds like a confusing mess. when i first realized what was happening, it hit me like an epiphany. yes, aha! i gots it! you may not realize it at first because you're not wired to but what they do on several tracks is mix the repeating drum sequences to periodically bounce not between the left and right channels but forwards and backwards through the mix, i.e. in front of you and behind you and close to you and away from you. as your brain is unable to really understand such movement coming out of a set of headphones, it just goes "wha...?" and is unable to piece the sound together properly, hence the total aesthetic of an aimless mess. you have to somehow tell your brain to listen in 3d.is that enjoyable to listen to? i would claim that it is, but it's very difficult to focus on. you have to constantly fight with your brain to pay attention because your brain is constantly responding with "ERROR 31337 - TOO MUCH INFORMATION. PLEASE TRY A DIFFERENT PIECE OF MUSIC.". this reaction must be biological; i pride myself on my attention span, which is unending and unwavering. if i can't focus and am constantly daydreaming when this is playing, i can only conclude that you will find yourself loosing focus and beginning to daydream as well. the biological reaction of a brain shutdown in response to sound that is too complicated to properly compute is a very interesting but rather bizarre point to "hit on". the contradictions in rhythm that autechre tend to explore rather routinely compound the issue.as is usually the case with autechre, the mini-epic at the end of the record is the high point. with untilted, they have actually just presented the mini-epic as one 16:00 track; they usually split it up into several. the sampling in this track is very creative and really quite brilliant. there are actually some points in this last track where it sounds like they are programming percussive orchestrations of hip hop rhythms into microtonal melodies. if you don't understand what that means, don't worry about it; just recognize that it's a weird but wonderful synthesis of existing ideas and enjoy the end result: it comes out sounding like a group of robots playing basketball in an imaginary court in outer space.in total, i would give this a higher grade if i was more interested in minimalist techno; the thing is that i'm really not. anybody who is huge into the plastikman sound must listen to this as, at the very least, it's certainly an example of pushing minimalism into very abstract territory. yet, the decision to move in this direction stylistically leaves something to be desired from my viewpoint because it renders large amounts of the record as too repetitive to really get me excited. yes, the repetition is abstract but it's not always interesting enough to grab me. in their decision to sculpt a three-dimensional soundscape that is almost totally void of anything resembling melody and harmony, autechre have created a unique and brilliant record that i enjoy immensely on an intellectual level but yet find almost impossible to actually listen to.

When i first got this i thought of it as fairly demanding but unrewarding..... but yesterday I finally got it! 4 years on, finally, i can listen to it and love it.I put the CD on, as i do every now and then with any Autechre i'm still not sure of... I played it quiet and the music all faded into the background, same as many other failed attempts at listening to this... but then some where in the middle of Pro Radii I noticed the music again... but it was different, something just clicked and drew me in. The music had my full attention. And it was beautiful. All of it.I haven't felt quite like this about Autechre since the first time i watched the Gantz Graf video.Give this album time, give it some attention, then give yourself a break, repeat. Now love this album and spread the word.

Autechre's latest could definitely be the soundtrack to a robot versus alien action flick. The best thing about this album is that you can listen to it quietly and still get the full effect (IMO for the first time with them). Maybe it's because each drum hit sounds like 10 drum hits on top of each other. And of course, if you want it loud, it goes there too, with plenty of little creaks and moans hidden in the sped-up percussion hits. It continues the line from Drafts because of the reduced reliance on conventional tonal structure. This is for people who love percussion. If you really want to know what I think: Untilted shows progress in compositional techniques, freeing individual sounds from their role or function in the song and allowing them to retain their autonomy as discreet phenomena. Where previous albums have been sonic "landscapes," I hear the movement toward "still life" from Drafts much further developed here. In other words, if you want to think of previous albums as showing what another planet might look on the surface (or even what the architecture might look like), Untilted perhaps details the specificity of objects in alien life. What do alien plates, fruit, umbrellas, piggy-banks, and toys look like? Listen to this album and you will see it in your mind. And yes, there is a track called 'the trees' on there, but I still see it as a departure from soundscapes and an arrival at integrated beats.

Great description! "The Trees" does lay down the sonic-Visual for Tek/Alien Landscapes which are transforming, moment to moment.

"Untilted" is a unique and accomplished album that will outlive the innumerable electronica fashion-formulas to come. The album occupies a different space — meta-Autechre perhaps?

I thought for the longest time that this record was called 'Untitled'. Then I thought it would be a good idea to go in and closely listen to the details of this record. A gripe I have is that it's mastered in a symphonic way. The quieter parts are just way too quiet. It's only a great listen if you play it really loud or on headphones, then it blows you away. Occasionally there is an abstract repetitiveness that expires it's interest prematurely. Other than that if you are a fan you should go grab a copy. New listeners would do best with LP5/EP7. My favorite is still Confield.

wahhhhh, dynamic range wahhhh.

Vital Beast
Despite many bad reviews of Untilted, I love this album. It's really opened the door to Autechre for me. I loved their first two albums, but I was trying to find one of their later albums that would get me into their cold IDM style. I think Untilted did it for me. LCC is a gem, must be in Autechre's best of somewhere. The only slight con about the track is the almost silent start, but perhaps this just builds up tension for the actual track or gets the listener to turn the stereo up and get blasted by a huge brick of AE beats. Ipacial Section shows that the duo can push the beats even further. This track is a beast. Pro Radii is another great track that starts with short bursts of an audience cheering over one of the most pounding, bassy and mysterious beats I've ever heard. This then merges itself into Augmatic Disport. Typical AE, stuttering mechanical beats with quiet drony pads underneath. Iera features the typical clicky AE drums with a squelching beat-repeat like sound in the back. This is then introduced to droning melodies. Fermium sounds like metal. A lot of sharp drums stuttering over string-like pads that sounds quite different to the other tracks. If the others are monsters, this is the little slimy thin creature in the corner having a fit. The Trees returns to the glitchy drums and squelchy basses. In parts it sounds like AE are returning to the old material before the track transforms into a mass of morphing drums. Sublimit must be one of the longest IDM tracks I know, but it deserves 16 minutes. It starts with normal drums (normal compared to some of the other tracks) which some glitched out bell-like sounds are layered on top of. At about 3 and a half minutes through, the track transforms into a type of glitch AE haven't really gone into much, at least to my knowledge. This part of the track reminds me of parts of Venetian Snares' Super Glue Funk Hits album. The track then transforms again with dark churning basses over glitching Linn-like drums. The structure then breaks down into some synthesized drums over quiet pads which keep running until the end of the track. As I said before, this album opened up Autechre to me, and I can't stop playing it now!

Honestly, this album is the most accessible music Autechre has put out in years. These 8 tracks are more focused and put together better then their last few albums. Sure its still weird, but thats why we like Autechre, is it not? Their music has always been pretty alien compared to most other IDM acts out there. Sure they could have kept making downtempo, ambient releases... But they chose to challenge our ears and make their music harder and harder to get in to with every album. Untilted comes full circle with the sound change Autechre has been pushing with the previous 2 albums. The beats are more steady and not so random anymore, and I dare say that there is a dance quality to this album. Although.. you may want to be careful if you try to dance to this.. you may hurt yourself

The ideas and production on this album are quite polished compared to the earlier albums. It appears they have gotten a better handle on their process and the sound quality really shines because of this. If you have an mp3 copy do your self a favor and pick up the cd as the lossy compression cant do the album justice. They have gotten better at unifying the different aspects of their tracks and the fluidness of these songs allows them to pack a whole lot into a short period without announcing that their doing it. Ipacial Section is a good example on another release this might have been three separate tracks. The journey from point a to point b is more subtle than whats come before but its also a little richer.

Although I do enjoy some of these tracks on the new album (augmatic disport is a new favorite) I hope that Autechre makes another softer album in the future. I enjoyed the earlier work just as much as the newer harder stuff. I just wish they will make some soft melodic tracks again in the future.

Quite different then the previous album, Draft 7.30. Untilted provides the listener with all kinds of disoriented clicks and beats. The question is though.. is it enjoyable music? Well yes and no. Some people will find it beyond annoying how just when you start to get the rythem of the song down, it changes direction. I'm a huge fan of Autechre and still found this release pretty challenging. It will take a few listens for this one to grow on you.

This album will stand underestimated for long by the vast majority of electronic music listeners, and particularly, hardcore Autechre fans. Being an offspring mainly from Gantz Graf (and not Draft 7.30, as one could think), it lacks slow and melancholic melodies, shares the same technological approach and victimizes atmosphere in favor of complexity, abstractness and wild braindance drive. While “Untilted” is definitely NOT among the best Ae's albums, it still is the very innovation in music of XXI century, not being another “remix for cash”. So, my ratings are: 3/5 among all other Ae's albums; 4.7/5 in nowadays experimental electronic, overall.

“Untilted” is Autechre’s eight album, and it continues their descent into increasingly abstract electronics. “LCC” starts off the album strong. It begins a strangely funky yet complex rhythm, which is later slowed down and joined by what is probably the best melody to be found on the whole album. “Ipacial Section” is up next. A complex construction of glitchy computer noises is constantly manipulated, before an almost tropical sounding melody is added, with the rhythms becoming even more twisted as the track progresses. Next up is “Pro Radii”, which begins with a frightening construction of compressed DSP noises, bass and what could possibly be crowd noise. Later, a more standard beat is added, and a simple up and down melody is introduced, before the compressed sounds from the beginning of the track return, although in a manner which is easier to grasp. “Augmatic Disport” is next, and it starts with an impressive arrangement of tightly wound, stuttering drum sounds, which become increasingly squashed as the track progresses. Some melodic chords are added, and later on, a simple rhythm replaces the crunchy drum sounds. “Iera” continues the album, with more DSP noises, and an uneasy melody creating a bleak and mechanical atmosphere. “Fermium” begins with an instantly appealing melody and glitchy rhythms. The melody is later removed and the DSP sounds become increasingly abstract. “The Trees” is a return to the sound of some of the tracks from EP7. It comprises of complex DSP arrangements, glitchy rhythms and dark, droning soundscapes. If you were to listen to this track blindfolded, with no information given on who the artist is, you could be forgiven for thinking that it comes from Richard Devine. “Sublimit” is the last and longest track on this CD. It begins with Drum n Bass tempo percussion, 4/4 beats and various DSP noises. Stronger drum sounds are then introduced, adding a hint of funkiness to the track. Just before the seven minute mark, the track goes quiet. The sounds gradually build up again. A floating synth pad appears in the background, and the beats, percussion and DSP noises become even more tightly squashed together, before fading out, making it the standout track. Like Autechre’s last two albums, “Untilted” takes a while to get into, and it has little to offer in terms of melody. But despite this, they have continued to deliver upfront and uncompromising music, and it will be interesting to see where they go from here. Not their best, but worth persevering with. 4/5.

People have been saying for years that Autechre should return to musical form and forsake their "excessive experimentation." I guess I'm of the brand that never stopped liking their overfocus on process, it created a world on the surface more ambient than rhythmic, challenging in its mathematical rhythms were beyond the easy access of humans. With that in mind, this album, despite being "more musical," has not truly forsaken Autechre's experimental angle. What has happened is a humanization of rhythm, a re-realization of the effects of driving bass rhythms on the listener, yet it still teeters on the edge of the machine world that is part and parcel of Autechre's sound.

A very different sounding record. Not for Autechre, of course, but a different sounding record nonetheless. "Fermium" is an excellent example of what Booth&Brown do best; they fuck with your head using interesting melodies over the top of insane rhythms. "Pro Radii" is another example of what limits IDM can be taken to. I definitely would not recommend a new Ae fan start here, I'd much sooner point them towards "Amber" or "Tri Repetae", but for the seasoned Ae fan, a must have. It's also one Ae record that has more English words as song titles than any recent Ae album has had. Just an interesting observation.

one life
Autechre's newest album shows an amazing diversity never before seen on previous albums. Both Draft 7.30 and Untilted start out very similar (long silence, followed by a flow of looping beats), but Untilted did a better job of holding me on to the beat. The hard pulsing beats and rushing snares in Untilted seem to be almost a departure from their IDM laced past, but it once again proves how incredible and diverse these two guys can be.
