A favourite album of mine, whether its chilled tracks like Alberto Balsam or Cow Cud Is a Twin to more out there noise fests like Ventolin, theres something for everyone. I never actually thought I would find out something new about this album after all these years let alone add to where it came from. Come on You Slags features a sample from the 1981 porn film, Seka's Fantasies, it was quite surreal, as I never have the sound on whilst watching porn but at the same time knowing what came next.

A very complete album, perhaps the most complete album by the TWIN and my personal favorite.

He somehow makes very bassy and distorted tracks like Start as you mean go, Come On You Slags, and Wax The Nip very relaxing to listen to. He does a fabulous job of combining his unique Surfing on Sine Waves/Selected Ambient Work 85-92 sound with his later developed Glitchyness. the IDM/Braindance is much more subtle here, and it doesn't over-whelm the listener like some tracks on Drukqs or the Richard D. James album.

He's never done anything quite like this, and this was his last record working with analogue gear, so it's the end of a style for him. And then came Hangable Auto Bulb and everything changed. Some say for the better, some say for the worse, but 100% twin all the way, no matter what!

Acrid Avid Jam Shred may be his greatest track. Perfectly combining emotionally layered drum beats with the most ooey gooey Synths and glitch pops you'll ever hear. The peak of the song comes at the 3 minute and 45 second mark and it's pure heaven. Some people can transcend tech-no, to make it not just sound like loops and programmed beats, and even a smaller amount of people have the gift to make a Synth and a Drum Machine sound like a whole orchestra; Aphex Twin is one of these people.

I hope he delivers a new album soon, my bones are shaking with complete joy for it!

This album is beautiful in it's own ways. I find an elegant sound to some of it, "Alberto Balsalm" especially, utilizing rythms of things like tire spokes(?) and scissors. Many people dislike "Ventolin", though I like it. I don't blame them though, it is quite harsh.

Together with SAW, this is RDJ's most consistent album up to date. After this he continued making excellent and progressive music, but it did lose some of the magic you can hear on the previous mentioned albums. All in all one of Aphex Twin's finest moments. Each song on this release has a unique style/composition/..., whereas his later albums often contain some less ingenious tracks to fill the cd. Must have.

What can I say this was my first true love in the world of electronic music. This album pretty much started it all for me and I'm so thankful that Richard D. James gave this to the community. Acrid Avid Jam Shred is in the top five of best Aphex Twin songs along with Alberto Balsalm, Cow Cud Is A Twin, Ventolin, and Icct Hedral. So pretty much this album is James best effort in my opinion. Just look at the dates of some of the tracks on the back of your CD/LP case. Wax The Nip and Come On You Slags! were made all the way back in 1990 that’s amazing! This is definiatly a disc you need to own if you are listening to electronic music.

start as you mean to go on is one of the best techno tracks i´ve ever heard..
alberto balsalm is one of the best idm tracks i´ve ever heard..
next heap with also really kicks, that sound of string is just.. mm..
there are more fine tracks, but most of record contains that kind of primitivness and melodic simplicity typical for most of afx works.. but ´...i care because you´ do is the one where it doesn´t really irritate me, because it´s a classic album for me and when i hear it, it remindes me a lot of things.. huh, now i realised it´s the first idm music i´ve ever heard:).. so respect!

One of my obsolute favourite Aphex releases. Very pretty melodies over mellow beats. This release totally stands out to me over some of his other releases simply because it has a style all it own. I think this is a must have album for any Richard D James fan.
