More glitch and percussion heavy than it's (I think) accompanying LP, Cichlisuite explores down the rabbit hole of algorithmic, breakbeat heavy idm. It's as true to the nature of Autechre as any release prior, and there's some real gems that show up here.

Chiastic Slide is the fourth studio album by the British electronic music group Autechre, released 24 February 1997 by Warp Records. Though not initially met with the same critical acclaim as Tri Repetae or LP5, Chiastic Slide was eventually recognized by critics as an innovative and "enormously influential" album. Chiastic Slide was released on 24 February 1997. It did not receive a release in the United States until Warp Records began distributing its own releases there in 2001.
Although Autechre is still teetering on the side of steady tempo and chord progression in the opening piece ("Yeesland"), listeners can practically feel the humanity slipping away with each track. Pencha" is a study in digital pings and polyrhythmic spokes grinding down and backing up again at irregular intervals, followed by "Characi," which is an almost unstructured cacophony of digital squeaks and electric piano loops - computer music for computers.
