I just bought this thinking it was a more recent reissue. Damn, this must have been sitting in that record store for 14 years. I can't imagine that many people would pass up a great Aphex record at a reasonable price.

This sounds great! Bucephalus Bouncing Ball in slow motion - sounds like it was partially made like this, with some faster effects thrown over the top. Lovely.

Very nice repress, still has the weird problem of the tracks on side B being switched around, instead of having the CD tracklisting.
Now if only we could get the remixes on a general release vinyl...

I'm not a fan of electronic noise music. This is why it is so surprising that Come To Daddy was the first song by Aphex Twin that drew me to his portfolio and got me obsessed with his style. This is the only noise track people often know he has made and it is a great one. The melodies and the chorus seamlessly integrate to conjure up one of the weirdest and innovative tracks ever produced. KTPA1 and KTPA2 from the Smojphace EP by Richard D. James are real noise tracks and bare no resemblance to Come to Daddy's tune. It's a completely different kettle of fish.

The other songs on the album incorporate elements of acid, techno and experimental electronic. It's a busy track that is complimented with "Flim", a mellow and relaxed tune with a fast paced beat, almost a softener to the ears. If you listen carefully you can hear James' humour as his mother comments on some of the sounds present. At one point it almost sounds as though she's about to say "Would you like anything else to eat or drink?" as she listens to his projects in his bedroom. It makes you wonder if such samples were taken while he was growing up. It seems possible.

If you are into metal music this might serve as a good beginner's album, if you are a fan comin from more classical genre, it might be worth listening to Aphex Twin's "Drukqs", "Richard D. James" or "I care because you do...".

By far his absolute masterpiece and a true classic for the whole genre of experimental electronic music. Every song full with unusual beats, weirdo melodies and bursting of sinister pranks. Gave me a grasp of the different sonic possibilities within electronic music 15 years ago and the amazement never left me when listening to this. Listening to this for 15 years now ... so you can call it truly timeless indeed :)

Sounds great - slow and relaxed - when played at 33 1/3 speed. Flim especially.

It was the titular song that gave me the early impression Aphex Twin was a seriously disturbed individual (no doubt perpetuated by the accompanying music video). Delving further into the CD however will reveal some audio delights. I was expecting more tracks in a similar vein to the first, however, to my surprise the song that immediately follows the single is the complete opposite in terms of style! Slower, softer and more melodic. At only four songs it's still a great sample of Aphex Twin's musical flexibility.
