Black_Hawk_Down.
It took me a while to enjoy this album, but it has really grown on me. It's classic Aphex. The whole thing is great.
Yainai
There were a few tracks that had to grow on me as well. It was nice to revisit it and enjoy thoroughly.
Stick
No problems for me on this pressing..Sounds absolutely amazing cranked up.. It annoys my 14 yr. old daughter but oh well..The Jacket is a bummer, but I can deal with it. It's vinyl after all....lol
Silver Globol
Just saw this in Barnes & Noble and grabbed it. No audio issues, sounds fine to me.
Malakelv
I thought it was a great pressing. You can hear some noise in the last track, but other than that it's great in my book.
Ballardana
Not sure about the complaints here, but I find this pressing great-sounding. My issues are, all three discs are slighty warped, which thankfully does not affect playback in any way (Bleep needs to step up on their packaging game), and I have a pressing defect right on the last track, which I've already contacted support and they can send a replacement.PS: got my replacement long ago, and still thoroughly enjoying it!
Vaua
Yes Bleep, please work on your shipping packaging. The last few items I've ordered from Bleep have arrived in similar condition. Not a total disaster with a bit of TLC but it's the last thing you want to be doing with a new LP.
Nalme
Does anyone actually have a copy that doesn't have all the distortion on the right speaker channel?! 1st disc especially. Went on the Hoffman forum and most people say the same except for a cpl "mine's fine." Dunno if I trust people... I (possibly idiotically) assume they just casually had it playing in the bg and didn't happen to notice. The distortion drives me nuts! Ridiculous for such an absolutely amazing album...
Kaghma
I use an Ortofon 2m Blue, the distortion should absolutely not exist unless it's a pressing flaw on mine. That's fantastic yours is playing great now! I'll hafta pony up and buy another copy in hopes of it being a nice press
Ishnjurus
Mine is great. No noise except for the last track.
Steep
Update 2: I've swapped for a new cartridge (Nagaoka MP-110), and the distortion is gone. Guess my old cart (AT100E) wasn't doing good in the first place.
Blackstalker
Okay, so I've relistened to my two copies (the defective one and the replacement Bleep sent me for free), and on both of them I did notice distortion on side B, and side B only. Bad batch maybe? I got them on February and May, respectively, directly from Bleep.
Halloween
Dayum! Looks like it's a gamble then! I'll probably buy another sometime, thanx m8
Pemand
mine sounds absolutely fine. no distortion. bought it the day of release.
Agrainel
The sound of this double vinyl is simply horrible, there's no clarity in the register of 'bass', or so is the stereo spatialization and 'treble' that make the charm of analog sound ? Very bad Press from Warp !!
Gaiauaco
Same here. What a shame.At least 10 words must be entered.
Thozius
After listening to the digital version of this amazing album well over a 100 times now, I'm sorry to say that this is actually a terrible pressing -- and I mean TERRIBLE. It took me a while to realize how bad it is, but after becoming intimately familiar with this album as well as upgrading my cartridge and phono stage which is now far more revealing (a blessing and a curse), the amount of distortion throughout this album is truly staggering. I'm a long time Aphex fan and this is my favorite album of his, and I'd say it's the best electronic album ever made as far as I'm concerned, but Warp continues to be the MOST aggravating label ever. I'm running into a string of Warp releases that all suffer from this crappy distortion stuff going on, typically the right channel, and particularly with the bass. Plaid's "The Digging Remedy" is another fantastic album given a terrible pressing that suffers from this same kind of distortion, for example. On Syro, by far the worst example of distortion happens on track "4 Bit 9d Api+e+6," one of my favorite tracks on the album -- completely ruined by scratchy distortion on the basslines and right channel. Absolutely awful, and I know I'm not the only one who's noticed it as other people have commented about it on forums. "Xmas_Evet10 (Thanaton3 Mix)," perhaps one of Richard's best tracks ever, isn't allowed to shine here because it's hidden behind a murky haze, muddy bass and of course, more distortion. What a damn shame. It's really annoying that I have to listen to the digital version of this album to get any enjoyment out of it while I have *two* copies of this 3-LP album sitting in my shelf, both suffering from the same distortion. Not sure what happened with the vinyl because the digital version sounds amazing, even if a bit hot. Warp IS capable of doing it right, check out the recent Autechre repress of "Tri Repetae" and "Amber" for examples of how to press a record correctly. Those sound unbelievable on my system. Astonishing even. You would think Warp would give Richard the same treatment for an album they probably thought they'd never get -- but sadly, that was not the case here. I have many albums that sound truly fantastic, so I know it was something going on either at mastering or pressing errors. If I were Richard I'd be less than amused. If there was ever an electronic album that must be heard on vinyl, this is it. Syro is 99% analog, all vintage synths and real hardware used on this record. According to him, the synths were not multi-tracked into a computer -- instead he used a hardware sequencer and they went through his analog mixer straight to tape. Anyone who produces electronic music knows how mind boggling that is, especially for this album. "Thanks Rich! Now here's your crappy pressing for your phenomenal album, but hey, we spread it across 3 records for you so we can charge a bit more!"I'm playing through an upgraded Rega RP3 with a Groovetracer reference subplatter & counterweight, a Rega Exact 2 cartridge, Rega Aria phono stage through an NAD C 356BEE integrated amp, Dali Zensor 7 floor speakers and all Kimber speaker cables and interconnects.
Olwado
daftcombo Whatever the format, the whole album sounds flat, even the best tracks (xmas_evet & 4bit). Anyway this record is totally devoid of atmosphere, which was RDJ strong point in the past (compare to SAW II and even to Analord 2). I know what you're talking about, and it's because he really held back on using much reverb for this album. It's almost as if he wanted to showcase the raw sounds of his analog synths on this one. Compared to SAW II which is dripping wet with reverb, this one is practically bone dry. But to me this album still has a ton of depth. The mix extends for miles and reveals new detail on each successive listen.
Diab
Whatever the format, the whole album sounds flat, even the best tracks (xmas_evet & 4bit). Anyway this record is totally devoid of atmosphere, which was RDJ strong point in the past (compare to SAW II and even to Analord 2).
Kalrajas
I totally agree. especially on your description of the "4 Bit 9d Api+e+6, track. Too bad.
Granirad
Absolute definition of a life-changing album. some of the best electronic music ever recorded, in my opinion.
Brakora
There is more to this than what you think you heard
Tat
Album ; 5/5 Pressing ; 5/5I'm only gonna talk about the vinyl version and the pressing itself. All of it, sounds great. Sure, 3 separate LP's might be a bit excessive, and the entire box is tough to fit unto a standard 12"-protective sleeve that i normally use, but otherwise this is a must-have if your into Aphex. The vinyl itself sounds great as well, glad that Richard is an audiophile and an analogue-freak by heart, it really shows that he probably meant this album to be played on wax.
Ironrunner
This is one of the few records that really bring out the best in my TT setup. Crystal clear pressing and great details in the music. Slap this on and push your setup to its peak.
Dodo
amazing album, like a lot of his best stuff, you can't fathom it out straight away, this is his best album by a long shot in my humble opinion.
happy light
After some time and several listenings, I came to the opinion that this album is just "ok", but not very good. And I'm doubting I will listen to it again. Compared to "Richard D. James Album" for example, you can see a lack of energy and inventivity. "Computer Controlled... " and "Orphaned DJ..." are even less good though.
Zodama
I gotta agree man. Big fan since day one, but this doesn't have the magic.
Mr.jeka
It's Aphex Twin....nuff said!Shame about the triple gatefold in white though. PITA! Fucking fingerprints and smudges :-P
Dikus
All the tracks except 2 are above 120BPM, how can this be labeled downtempo???
Bele
I'd argue that it's downtempo in the context of Aphex Twin.
Ydely
Another horrible listening experience from Warp. This 3xLP could have easily been a 2xLP. They don't even master the records at 45rpm when they do this. I'm convinced that it is gouging. Sides B+C could easily fit on one side of an LP. Same goes for Sides D+E. Seriously, after the abomination that is this release, coupled with the last Flying Lotus and Grizzly Bear albums, I stopped buying Warp releases. No thought goes into them.
SkroN
Everyone ignore this "drommusik" tard. He obviously has ZERO idea what he's talking about if he wants to claim that Warp Records makes bad album pressings. This is the same assclown who works for (Digital) Music On Vinyl and champions their horrible, overpriced pressings to high heaven around Discogs. He is an absolute joke and you shouldn't take anything this guy says seriously..
Endieyab
I did some googling and regardless of music you can put 18 minutes on one vinyl side. If you put tracks 3-6 you had a side that would rund 42 seconds longer than that. But besides that each side would be UNDER 16 minutes and still fit on 2 LPs.
Ichalote
if it was on 2LP it would be a terrible pressing, way too quiet, you don't know what your talking about mate.Sounds f'kin great btw, prefer to the CD
elegant stranger
I disagree, Vinyl starts sounding way too muffled for me when there is more than 15 minutes of music on a side of a record, except maybe with music that's already ambient or soft. They probably could have fit it on two within that limit, but only if they messed with the tracklist and put papat4 after _180db or something. Mind you, pressing the three at 45rpm might have improved the sound and it would've been cool to listen to them at 33rpm after.
VariesWent
Hiyou must have been angry when you reviewed this.Think you should give tracks 1&2 specifically a relisten you have seen how much effort and dedication it takes to put a cd together from the artwork I think this is s futuristic outtake on where music is now pushing the boundaries of experimental and ambience with broken beat although not a fan of this style of music I thoroughly enjoyed this cd
Ironfire
Genius from start to finish.
blodrayne
This album cured my genital warts
Nuadazius
Fantastic album full of amazing, funky synth work with a retro/futuristic style and sound.In a time when everyone seems to listen and talk about Dubstep, Aphex turned the opposite way and managed to reinvent himself with a wonderful production of retromania.There are 2 main albums that relighted my interest in electronic music after a long period of disinterest: Dave Monolith's 'Welcome' and Syro.
Haal
Not quite a master work but very mature..... My only gripe is that several tracks build up but ultimately don't go anywhere... Very anticlimactic. The production is amazing as would be expected from aphex - intricate and layered sequencing, vast ranges of instrumentation, deft application of effects and processing. He must have an enormous amount of time as the attention to detail is mindblowing. The gear list provided is insane and allows us to get a glimpse of just how devoted he is and what range of instrumentation old and new has come under his purview. This for me gives light that his setups are expansive and involve the assembly of a nexus of equipment all working in symphony under his direction. In any case buy on sight as you will be setting your ears on another work from one of the best producers in the game. There is a reason he gets big props from producers out there. He's at the top of the game - the consumate professional. According syro, buy asap even despite the narration shortcomings.
playboy
Not my cup-o-tea.
BlackBerry
True Romance...?
ChallengeMine
Great album, But the packaging is insane. I bet Richard could have easily made it 2 records not 3 so it could be a traditional gate fold and less headache.
blac wolf
the more records something is pressed on the better the quality, more of a pain to change sides but I pick quality of audio over convenience anyday, to choose the latter is very telling on what your all about.
Modigas
yeah, i was getting annoyed by having to get up every ten minutes and flip sides/switch records. avoiding inner groove distortion is one thing, gratuitously pressing 64 minutes of music on 3x12" is quite another.
Justie
My sealed copy from Amazon had multiple hairline marks on aisatsana. At least Amazon does free replacement as long as you return the item
Nawenadet
It wouldn't let me send this to you privately so I'm sorry in advance that I had to do this publicly. also this doesn't specifically relate to this comment I agree that amazon is evil I just quit working there currently I am unemployed living off the vacation time that I am raking in from them. I hope you see this cause this could be the thing that saves your life.dubvulture,I've seen your comments a couple of times and you just seem really grumpy. Like why are you so grumpy? like all of your comments sound like they were made by "the techno grinch tm". I don't understand what makes you feel so entitled? I mean you've only purchased one thing from discogs and you've only made 3 contributions. I haven't made any contributions, but also I don't post on most things like the collective Team of warp, rephlex and many other record labels came to my house and fucked me with a wooden broom. Lighten up man. If you don't like a music or album or don't agree with the price of something you should try to relax and breath. Just relax and breath. I feel as if you follow these simple steps it will allow you to be much happier in life. Maybe try going to albums you like and trying to put all of those negative energies into making a positive comment! I don't know if you make music at all, but it's a lot of work being an artist especially a cutting edge one.
Vertokini
it is a great album - it needs a lot of listenings to get befriended with it -
Whiteseeker
yes absolutely - actually after more and more listenings one has to feel how many efforts had been invested into production, brilliant keys and layers
Goktilar
IMO Best Aphex album, most of the unsatisfied people seem to have ridiculous expectations or be stuck in the past... or not really listen to that much RDJ. Interesting and beautiful, never dull or too much. Easy to listen to and love and understand from the first listen, wonderful to keep discovering in later listens.I really should not say this but... I feel this is to RDJ what Exai was to Autechre... at least I mean I have a similar feeling about this in the context of all RDJ work as I had about Exai in the context of all Autechre work. I find both just so comfortable... so familiar, so easy to listen to... yet different and exciting and as good as or better than all that came before.At the start of (and sometimes during) syro u473t8 the processed voice is saying the following, but in Russian:"This is the stretching of sound in time."Though "this" could actually mean "that" depending on the context, but it seems to be "this" in this case.
Mazuzahn
Mm never thought about it really, though fundamentally the stretching of sound simply results in a lower frequency, it doesn't have to be obvious, especially with very fast attack and release time, in fact, since reading your reply, I've started thinking that maybe the bass element in the melody directly after the voice is simply created by time stretching suddenly, to a constant level, then releasing back to the original level. Just a thought, could be totally wrong :)
Nto
Damn that last paragraph man, well stated! So very true
Corgustari
Regarding the processed speech at the start of syro u473t8, I feel like it would make complete sense if it was "that" IF Circlont14 was left off the record, or placed later on, because if it was that would make the speech a direct reference to Fz Pseudotimestretch+e+3. As it is, I have no idea why it's there, as I don't see any obvious time-stretching in syro u473t8.And I agree with your opinion of Syro - I think it's his best, and I'm a pretty hardcore RDJ fan. Circlon6a, syro u473t8 and minipops 67 are some of my favourite song of all time.
Skillet
I agree!
Mitynarit
Absolutely agree 100% with theK_plusCat's comment!Exai does some surprising things, but almost because they seem to have scaled back the complexity of some of the programming, such as the straight up 1980s boom bap beats (Linn drum machine?) on 'recks on'. Syro does similar things with beautifully unfurling synths and the easing off of overly clattering breakbeats. Maybe it's because I'm getting older that I say this, but there's no need to make overly complicated music just for the sake of it. At the end of it all, if there's no emotional resonance or intangible atmosphere being created, even if it's a cold, distant melancholy, then it's of no interest to me. Both Syro and Exai have feeling, beauty and enough sharp edges to keep you engaged from the first listen and keep you coming back for more.
Uyehuguita
the people seem to bitch about this album not being progressive for such a long absence, but its a lot like some of the AFX releases since druqs, RDJ brings in a little modern recording techniques but mainly remains the same, after-all, some of these tracks were made 10 years ago according to the man himself. If you like aphex twin, you'll like this album. If you're looking for the next ambient 1 or 2 look elsewhere if you're looking for something familiar yet new look here.
Kigul
Tracks A2, D2, E2, F1 are good but I guess the biggest problem here is that you expect something outstanding because of the artist name on it. But the IDM genre itself is limited and nothing new at all, you can say it is dead. Everything was done before by others and Aphex Twin himself. So for the lack of new ideas it could be more fun at least. But it's not. It's just one in a long row of overhyped and overpriced records of the last five years.
I love Mercedes
dtoner If you think this is IDM you are a fuckin nut. Get your ears out of your ass. Oh what a creative and never read before coment that has nothing to offer but insults and "this is not ... but I won't tell you anyway what it really is"-rhetoric.
Mullador
it was monday night when I found $25 on the floor at the cafeteria. being a broke college student, I kept it and moved on... next day was "bagel tuesday" at the deli so i bought a dozen for $9. My next stop was obvious: record store to spend the rest of this cash on Syro... I'd say it was money well spent... listening to this album is a very pleasurable experience
Flamekiller
Hey that was my $25!
Fordredor
All these years of waiting for an album of music that at best sounds like rejected tracks of the drukqs n analord sessions... Very dissapointing, seems like 10 years went by with no progress for RDJ, a great pity since the guy can defo do better..
Frey
You don't seem to understand that these tracks were released by Richard because he wanted to move on with more experimental projects and decided to pick the most accessible tracks as a fresh new start.
Water
It is interesting how polarizing this album is, and how extreme the opinions differeven within the circle of people who were interested. Personally I think it's a fantastic album, I had a hard time with Drukqs.
Wilalmaine
great pressing, love afx analog synths combined with warm and cozy vinyl sound. is it just my copy, or this LP running in 33 rpm mode is slightly faster than the digital version? like, if my turntable were able to run it on 27-30 rpm, it would sound exactly like CD (in term of speed, ofcourse). anyways, it's great both ways, so i don't bother =)
Nicearad
No doubt another great LP from RDJ. My copy from Amazon was 'ironically' warped. Back it goes
Beahelm
You wouldn't. The fact it was warped is a somewhat ironic circumstance because it's on Warp. Yeah, I know, you have just been ironically ironic.
Delaath
How on earth would you 'ironically' warp a vinyl
Juce
Haha, maybe a secret special edition. Was it warped like a boomerang? That would be extra suspicious.
Dellevar
It's a wonderfully packaged album, beautifully pressed too.Been excited as the next Aphex fan for new album, counting down the years! In truth, I find this album to be just OK. It's no killer, but am happy to get new work from AT just for nostalgia sake. More resembles stuff he did as The Tuss/Analord, than Aphex Twin. It's a pretty safe album. In time, maybe will grow on me
Nothing personal
100% thinking the same.I consider the last song of Syro to be a reminiscence of Drukqs, one of the RDJ's less interesting album. Hopefully this Syro is more pop mainstream :)

Well, after listening Syro for a 6-7 times, my final thought is this; it's below average or average max. There isn't a single track on the album that generates a wow effect. If this isn't Aphex Twin, I'm sure it will be forgotten in no time. On the other hand, I like the artwork idea very much.

Isn't a review by definition subjective? I mean, it's someone's opinion.
Malojurus
Since when is an "actual review" of music anything other than subjective opinion. Try learning the meanings of words.
Heraly
Try writing an actual review rather than just subjective opinion.

Aphex Twin does it again. Love this album
Skunk Black
Why 442 users have this records when is a limited edition to 200 copies ?!I don't understand...
Thorgaginn
The limited edition of 200 comes in a solid perspex box and retailed for £250. This is the standard vinyl edition.
Braswyn
This is the standard edition, and I don't believe it is a limited release. There is a limited release available by raffle through the Bleep website, but it is $400 USD.
Kagaramar
and if its a limited pressing of 200, how come theres 89 copies for sale on here???
Bluecliff
What are you talking about? They made s little more than that.
Arcanefist

Fomand
just the limited edition of 200 pieces costs around 250 pounds or 400 euros.
Gralinda
Excellent continuation of the Aphex Twin sound after such a lengthy hiatus. The conclusive "aisatsana" is an absolute gem!
Cezel
Every single track is at least very good, some are brilliant from the begining. RDJ gathered all the known sounds and created another great album with high complexity and extremely danceable. True braindane music. I want more
