New domestic mid-line reissue; previous U.S. edition on TVT is now deleted. Originally released in 1994. "Autechre's Rob Brown and Sean Booth have never exactly played safe. They began as electro-loving graffiti artists before progressing to the equally police-unfriendly world of pirate radio. Amber floats their '90s update of electro's cut-and-paste rhythms into the realm of the odd. It sounds like some kind of alien jazz record, and tracks like 'Foil' make even Aphex or µ-ziq's abstract tones seem almost conventional. That's not to say Amber is goal-less experimentation. There's plenty of melody on board, it's just that it creeps up on you from behind, as on 'Montreal.' The boys know how to give you a good fright too. 'Yulquen' and 'Teartear' are object lessons in ominous, otherworldly techno. Which about sums up where Autechre are at -- out on the fringes, having a good rummage through the weird and the beautiful." --Mike Barnes, Select Magazine
