Hi. I'm lucky enough to have recieved my copy of Steve's new album "grace and gratitude" yesterday. It's a really amazing CD. Sonically it's his most "spacious" sounding album yet. I mean that from the point of view of the sounds he has wrung out of his basses, but also from the production point of view. There's an enormous canvas of sound at work on a lot of the tracks which is just amazing. It looks like Steve has enjoyed being able to use the full stereo field for his mix! When's the 5.1 surround sound mix coming out Steve? The feel of the tracks ranges from the intimate - the title track "grace and gratitude" - to the slappy, funky "shizzle"; to the eery "the journey of a thousand miles". Many of the tracks aren't as immediately accessible as "Not dancing for chicken" but this isn't a "difficult" album by any means. My view is that this is Steve's "Selected ambient works Vol II". Those who know The Aphex Twin's work will know what I mean. Well worth a listen or four. If you haven't already, buy it now, because you'll get "Lessons learned from an aged feline, pt ii" which is just as good! Honestly, how Steve can afford just to give away this "extra" stuff for free just doesn't make economic sense! Bless 'im! Can you tell I liked it?
