He looks so creepy on the album art. He looks like he's going to rip my face off.

The electronics and sounds are good, but the use of programmed hyperactive drumrolls distracts and disturbs.

"Richard D. James Album", Autechre's "Confield", and Burial's "Untrue" are the masterpieces defining the last 20 years in electronic music.

I disagree with the "love it or hate it" conclusion. I neither love nor hate this album. It definitely takes several listens to fully enjoy it, but I don't think it's his best or worst work. For example, it blows away Drukqs (though what doesn't?) but isn't as beautiful and heartfelt as I Care Because You Do. I'd probably put SAW1 and SAW2 above this album, and the standout tracks on Come to Daddy are superior to the RDJ Album. Either way, I want more AFX! It's been too long!

RDJ takes a jungle beat and creates a total masterpiece. The opening of "4" tells you right away you're going to be in for a treat. Songs like "Fingerbib" and "Goon Gumpas" seem to project me into a different world. "To Cure A Weakling Child" is sample/drum mastery. Plenty of drums with beautiful melody interspersed, the song writing, detail and subtlety of the album really do make it best of class.

Revolutionary and brilliant record.
