    It’s. A. Masterpiece.
    The only negative is that the packaging is a bit complicated, and I’ve got to do a … little … extra work.
    Either way - always worth it!

      Some tracks are convincing 2010s progressions from his 1990s work. The sense of humour from the earlier albums is pretty much gone, sadly. "PAPAT4" sounds like a cover of "We all stand together" by Paul McCartney and The Frog Chorus. That could count as humour, but it's dismal rather than amusing. "Produk 29" is blighted by samples of an irritating middle-class woman bitching to friends about another woman who behaved like a "disgusting f*cking whore" when they were "at that club".

      The best tracks are generally more dense than the old work – dense as in featuring dozens of different synth and drum voices, even if only a few of them are heard at any one time. The highlight is "Xmas_Evet10", which keeps morphing from one thing to another while maintaining a coherent whole. (The "Xmas_Evet1 N" mix, released on a stamped single, is briefer but even better.)

        insane album
        reasonable price
        amazing sound
        literally everything else

        need to change sides a lot (no big deal)
        sleeves it ships in are tight and will probably leave micro scratches (get other inner sleeves)

          Great quality control on these. Richard's clearly one of those artists who care about ensuring that their physicals sound great instead of shoving mixed-quality vinyl releases out the door at a ridiculous markup. Only other artist I've seen retail a 3LP at a reasonable price is Boards of Canada.

          Don't tell anyone I said this, but this stuff is miles better than most of his earlier works.

            Don’t understand any of the negative comments on my end. Another masterpiece by AT and wonderfully open and warm yet detailed on my set up. Set your turntable up correctly and this album is a workout.

              Love this record, sounds great! But sucks that it’s on 3 records. 2 tracks per side, quite a slog having to flip sides every 10-12 minutes. Seems it was pressed for DJs in mind since each side is sorted by BPM. My record storage is limited, so I unfortunately had to part with it. Could have easily been a single record imo lol.

                A release so strong and beautiful. I bought a second that remains sealed so I can use the first to listen. Cover will take a proper hitting with minimal handling, "can I borrow it" asks a friend..."fuck off"

                  In celebration of Syro's 7th birthday, I wanted to show my appreciation for just how incredible this pressing is. It sounds leagues better than many of the other records I own. Owning this album on wax has really made me appreciate how incredible a good vinyl can sound

                    The pressing sounds incredible. The album itself is a masterpiece IMO. As with every RDJ work, multiple listens are rewarded. Beautiful stuff.

                      When syro first released it didnt reel me in like his previous release have in the past, it felt more conserved and less ground breaking that Drukqs for example.

                      5 years later, this record has become established in my personal top 5 records of all time if not number 1. the depth, intimacy and attention to detail is astounding, every single listen brings something new to the my ears, with each track being a pristine mosaic of hardware bliss, mixed to perfection and mastered right into that sweet spot of warmth and punch these track deserve.

                      What astonishes me about this record is how every single detail, bassline, drum hit, transition from idea to idea is executed with such intent and attention. Nothing here feels like a happy accident, its crafted by someone who is so attuned to the mechanics of electronic music that when the gear doesnt do what it should, he's able to corral the machines into submission..

                      Syro is a contemporary classic, bringing together the dance side of electronic music with intimate, emotive composition. couple this record with Aphex Twin - London 14.09.2019 and Syro's sister single, Aphex Twin - MARCHROMT30a Edit 2b 96 for a truly contemporary definition of Braindance and proof to anyone who'd argue against electronic music's ability to be expressive, playful but thoughtful and innovative.

                      Nice work rich, you crazy bastard!
