Song title meanings:

Jynweythek "Mechanical".
Omgyjya-Switch7 "The first word is a swear word alluding to pleasuring oneself".
Strotha Tynhe "To squeeze, to tighten".
Gwely Mernans "Deathbed".
Gwarek2 "Arch".
Hy A Scullyas Lyf A Dhagrow "She shed a flood of tears".
Kesson Dalef "Harmonious voice"? (NB “lef” means voice but “dalef” doesn’t mean anything).
Ruglen Holon (This is probably meant to be something along the lines of “Rattle of the heart”, but it’s not correct Cornish so it’s unclear).

Overrated album... if you're an adventure-less flocking type and or cursed with an ignorant ear. Not the good kind either. Might be Aphex's apex. Let's hope high.

This is a classic for many people... and for me, like several release of RDJ !
Here is my inverted version (not reversed !) of Avril 14th : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VlE3fXEfOY

This is an excellent album by the mighty APHEX TWIN but I only like the first 30 tracks!

Hi ! can anyone help me ? I think I have this version because of the identifiers that match, but when I look at the pictures, I realize that my version of the box can't be widely open. It has an inner card retainer but no Aphex Twin logo die-cut on it like on the Limited edition. Can someone confirm that the last picture of this release is a broken box and all other boxes can't be opened like that ?

To people whining "But a repress would be as expensive as this!!1" :

If Warp made new masters with all the discs at 33rpm, you could easily fit this album onto 3 discs and repackage the album in a trifold cover (similar to Syro's sleeve, except, of course, with Drukqs branding). £25 at most.

An emotional and brilliant masterpiece with an epic scope. The vinyl edition's mixed up tracklist kind of ruins it though; stick to the CD.

Is there any difference in the quality of the pressing between this and WARPLP92X "Limited Audiophile Vinyl Version"?
It'd be nice to have the limited edition version with all the extra stuff, but I'll only really pay the extra if it actually sounds any better. Otherwise I'll just buy this one.
