It's so hard for me to rate this album, as is my relationship with RDJ's work in general. I always feel disturbed while listening to his tracks, even the ones that are probably not meant to invoke such a feeling. "Druqks" are no exception, and while I admire the energy and pure "c'mon-you-cunts" anger behind most of the tracks here, I think I've never listened to the entire double album in one take, ever. It's just too overwhelming and, well... tiring.
Even the "pretty" compositions, such as "Avril 14th", sound weirdly menacing, surrounded by the madness... It's like listening to a serial killer relaxing himself by playing a nice piano tune.
Still, 4 stars for the originality itself. It's a drill'n'bass essential.

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

When is the vinyl repress coming from Warp? They already re-issued the rest of his back catalog, and now they just need to give this one the same treatment to sent all the absurd prices for it back to normal.

Pretty much the most underrated album ever by Aphex Twin. The amount of effort put into this left me speechless the first time i heard it. Yes, i can agree it takes time to get into this one, but it's no doubt the work of a genius, and anyone who claims it's not should think again. It goes back and forth between genres displaying James's various skills.
Tracks like Avril 14th speaks for themselves and pretty much anyone could enjoy such a beautiful piece, while Mt. Saint Michel Mix-St. Michaels Mount, Meltphace 6 and Ziggomatic V17 displays Richard's capability with melodies and pads, which i enjoyed the most out of this album. Yes, people say it's just bits and pieces made from boredom on a USB/Ipod which Richard lost on a plane, forcing him to release them, but i disagree, i'll say it again, it's no other than the work of a mad genius. Looking forward to getting this on vinyl soon.
