His best Analogue Bubblebath release, apart from the Hangable Auto Bulb EP of course.

Great EP, with "Cuckoo" being one of AFX's funkiest moments. Still cheap due to a large amount of copies pressed.

"Cuckoo" is an interesting track; the rest are kinda forgettable.

Oddly, one of my fav Aphex releases. It's not sunday morning listening by a long stretch, but played at the right time it's a destroyer!!!!!

RAAAH!

I just noticed the CD art/text says:
"...Unauthorised Public Performance, Broadcasting And Copying Of This Record Punishable By Death."
I guess the Braindance approach isn't working, so lets get Militant! :-)

This is one of my least favourite RDJ releases alongside Power Pill. The songs presented seem to be some form of endurance test, Elephant Song is repetitive and noisy and I don't mean in an interesting abstract kind of way. Gibbon is certainly a better track with some amazing acid riffs, stomping beats and spooky signature synths towards the end but most likely will be too corrosive and repetitive for most listeners.Cuckoo is a nice little number with care-free droopy Paradinas-style synth work and nice bassy beats reminiscent of AB3. The synths in Sloth are somewhat of a prelude to Hangable Autobulb but in my opinion the track suffers from a pleasent but uninteresting noise which repeats every three seconds for eight minutes.

A vastly overrated release from Aphex Twin, and I must say I was dissapointed after reading promising reviews from other listeners. Gibbon is an extremely hard and wild track that does nothing for me other than make me deaf. Likewise, Elephant Song is extremely loud and banging, but it has some more creativity in it. Cuckoo is quite the opposite, an almost cheesey and extremely happy and dreamy track. Sloth is a chilled back track, my favorite on this release (and even this track isn't that great), and Knievel is nothing more than a strange vocoder effect on some spoken words. None of the tracks seem very complex or thought-out, rather, this release sounds like an average techno release. Overall, the quality of these tracks is horrible, nowhere near the finesse that Richard displays on his other releases.
