    Music is subjective issue, p.ersonally I think Autechre is better than µ-Ziq

    µ-Ziq and Cylob literally saved my ass today, as I was able to get into a flow state and write a goddamn specification document for client in one day. Tried first death metal, stoner rock, even AFX and SQP felt too disruptive and/or interrupting that I wasn't able to get in the mood. But then these champions did it and I'm writing like the devil, lmao! \\o/

    I heard there are people who stopped listening to µ-Ziq after year 2000 or so - but they love Lunatic Harness. New album is just a stone's throw from Lunatic Harness - tell them will you.

    XTLP sounds great, although some of the best tracks were already on XTEP.

    My Christmas wish this year is for David Lynch to commission a film score from Mike.

    Tango & Vectif, grimel0rd .... more of an industrial album, even more dreamy, amazing urban themes

    in my opinion µ-Ziq sounds way better than Autechre. I didn't listen to their whole discography , but from what i heard i think µ-Ziq has batter production qualities. What do you think people? Of course the tastes are divided, but they are on the top of their genre, which is new for me, but i'm starting to love it. I want to hear more opinions :)
