Found at my local record shop...I think it sounds fantastic. Very little surface noise. The "little things" shine and the bass is punchy...beautiful!

Where can I get a copy of this remastered version? I'm not seeing anything on Bleep or Aphex Twin's website.

After numerous listens between this original press and the 2012 180g release, I'd argue that the difference in sound quality is minimal, almost completely dismissible. If anything, the reissue has the leg up due to generally being quieter and having less surface noise compared to the WARP presses I've come across from this time period. For comparison, I found the difference between the original presses of Boards Of Canada records and the WARP reissues to have larger differences that could have their own positives and negatives.

It can be somewhat harder to track down in the US, so you'd do better just grabbing the reissue. That being said, I gladly waited damn near a decade to grab a clean original copy of this and I still giggle like a child when I see it on my shelf, so I know it's worth it if you're a diehard fan.

The above notes say this has a new master, can anyone comment on how it sounds?

I think my copy of the RDJ album might be an oddity. The disc mother/stamper seems to indicate M4S2, but I looked at the listings of variants, and no M4S2 was found. (It could be M452, but that wasn't found either.) Does anyone perhaps know about this and could relay some info as to why?

As others have said, really nice album and quality. I kind of wish that there was less silence between the tracks, but it's not a big deal. It's been so long since I listened to this I can't remember if there was this much silence between tracks digitally. Definitely don't hesitate to get this though, you won't be disappointed.

An absolutely milestone of music in the 90’s! (…maybe even in human history)
This sound is so full of elegant composition that it almost takes your breath away!
It changed my life back then.

Aphex Twin gilt als Breakbeat-König. Naja, ich lasse ihn mal als Prinz durchgehen. Was er hier in der halben Stunde produziert hat, gefällt. Er vermengt Breakbeat mit Acid, Elektronik, Trance und Drum´n´Bass. Das haben schon viele vor ihm versucht, aber so filigran wie Aphex Twin bekommt dies höchstens noch Fatboy Slim hin. Da kommen in "Peek 824545201" Geräusche vor, die einzeln gehört störend sind, in Zusammenhang aber durchaus zum Tanzen anregen. Selbst vor Synthie-Klängen ("Fingerbib") und einer klassischen Musik Interpretation macht er nicht halt ("Goon gumpas"). Für treibende Hammerbeats ist in "Corn mouth" gesorgt. Bei "To cure a weakling child" ist sogar eine Kinderstimme mit eingebunden. Einfach cool. Eine Symbiose aus Breakbeat und klassischen Tönen mit Trance-Anleihen kann man mit "Girl/boy song" vernehmen. Schon alleine diese Mischung ist schwer vorstellbar, deshalb unbedingt reinhören, auch wenn noch so knarzige Sounds auf dieser Platte zum Vorschein kommen.

Is the pixellation on the cover of this and I Care Because You Do deliberate - like a middle finger to fancy design - or were the LP covers just made from files that were too small? I've got the original pressings but it's the same on the reissues I've seen in shops. Especially strange as the back covers look normal!
