This is the definitive version of this vinyl release, one of James' best lesser known albums. Classic Braindance.

Why is this in the albums section? It's an EP.

This is a decent album with plenty of scope. Some of it may be a little demanding for some listeners, and maybe some of it could develop a little more, but I like it.

If you connect up this artists sonic art then you probably have this brown bag vinyl ep.

Bought a copy new on release in brown paper bag with barcode sticker on back top centre (with REPH 008 above it, as per image) and A4 paper insert (without barcode). Later found a copy in a white paper bag without barcode sticker (but with original HMV price gun sticker suggesting it was supplied like this). No paper insert but am guessing the barcode was moved from bag to insert.

Don't know if anyone else has had this issue, but my copy is now warped as hell. It's the only vinyl release of mine that went all wobbly on me (not a huge collection at all, 40 maybe). Curious as to why no other vinyls did this, given their shared environment and conditions. Luckily I've the CD version as well, so all's not lost.

I'd be curious to know if anyone else's vinyls have suffered fates similar to mine.

Brilliant album. It covers a lot of different style including 2 of AFX's very few forays with Trance. Track one is trancey, borderline cheesy but amazing, it has a rather industrial and repetitive beat glossed over with really nice synthesizers and uplifting chord-changes.

Track 2 is a highly repetitive track with incrediblyspooky synths and a heavy simplistic beat and beautiful high-pitched noises, it reminds me of a desert at night. Track 3 is weird, more spooky synth sounds, a really funky hiphop beat, strange illegible vocal samples and a metal clank, love it.

Track 4 is an atmospheric gabba-techno hybrid with overtones of calming ambient sounds reminiscent of Super Metroid. Track 5 is a nice intermission song which is pretty much indescribable but very enjoyable. Track 6 starts out as what sounds like a hairdryer pointed at a speaker and explodes into another Trance track although a lot harder than Track 1, great song.

Track 7 is vintage mental-as-fuck AFX acid in its purest form with a bit of Caustic Window spliced in. Track 8 is a really sweet ambient song with nice beats and sounds throughout. Track 9 is slightly industrial squelchy acid with a sample of a delirious laugh being looped, great track too.
Track 10 is thirty-five enjoyable seconds of mental Gabber. Track 11 is a very dark full-on Ambient tune with a really spooky vibe. Track 12 sounds like satan taking an analogue bubble-bath. The final track is slightly dated techno which wouldnt sound of place on a Caustic Window EP, good song though.

A couple of tracks on here are excellent, but for the most part this is not a very enjoyable release. Normally Aphex Twin's work is indeed very complex and wild, but this release is particularly annoying on the ears, with screeching synths at some points, and repetition and lack of creativity all throughout. If you want some of his better analogue releases, take a look at his later Analord series, summarized in his "Chosen Lords" CD.
