Shedding the past was one of the best Techno records of the past decade. Very detailed and layered if maybe a bit paranoid and claustrophobic. It still my favorite album to test audio systems and headphones. Resident Advisor agrees with me. Their users and writers voted for it as best album 2008. This year's the Traveller is more stripped down but it as some brilliant IDM inspired moments. Helping me sort out my Aphex Twin fix.

Anyone else with me?

i really like 'the bot'.

and 'leave things' is probably uncharacteristic but i can't stop playing it anyway.

well played

i agree, new album has some great tracks but as a whole ive not been playing it through. Fair play to the guy for experimenting but his best tracks tend to be when he's doing more of a straight detroit thing with boomy berghain facing production (ie well done my son). Check out his older tracks on his own label solocation, all downloadse on boomkat now.

Seeing him do the new album live in london was a pretty dire experience given the energy of his older live sets, htough admittedly you could blame the dire mix of south london club tourist thugs and the noodlearmed electronica boys that made up the crowd and cables atrociously quiet soundsystem
