YMMV / Autechre

  • Archive Panic: Autechre have been active since 1991, and have been releasing albums and EPs at a respectable rate. This trope kicks in with 2013's Exai, the band's first album to span two discs (and two hours.) Then followed a nine-hour live album and two studio albums, four and eight hours long, respectively.
  • Broken Base: Confield. Despite going far beyond that album's sonic palette, it still manages to confound and alienate listeners. There's a sharp divide between pre- and post-Confield Autechre fans, with a small amount of overlap.
  • First Installment Wins: Some fans look at Incunabula this way.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Confield sparks this in some people.
  • Old Guard Versus New Blood: Pulled off successfully on LP5. Exai is also starting to look like this after being acclaimed by critics and fans alike.
  • Vindicated by History: Chiastic Slide, which upon its release was deemed underwhelming and a disappointment. These days, it's considered an underrated classic.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The Gantz Graf video averts this. The idea for the video came to the director in an acid trip.
