Great classic Acid/IDM compilation. "On The Romance Tip" is one of the best electronic track I've ever heard, but there are plenty of awesome sounds & rythms in this release. A must have !

after not playing the records for a very long time, i cleaned them thoroughly several times with an okki nokki and the regular cleaning fluid. the vinyl still looks foggy but plays perfectly fine.

Essential Aphex release if you don't own the joyrex ep's. As everyone says the represses are likely to be in better condition due to the non plastic sleeves. I've got the 2007 version and it's one of my prized records. Cordialatron is so beautiful. Get it if you can.

Absolutely one of the best releases by Richard D James - His heavy sounds were so rePhreshing in the early 90's - and now. Unfortunately the original vinyl pressing was housed in a clear sleeve pack that leaves a "cloudy" film onto the vinyl. I've rarely played mine since learning this and removed the vinyl from the original sleeves as I would recommend to anyone who owns the original vinyl pressing.
----- Question: has anyone played the stained vinyl a few times and found any improvement either visually or audibly once the needle has glided through the groves - thus likely wearing off some of the stain (for the better)? Has anyone tried carefully cleaning the vinyl beyond standard record cleaner solutions in order to clean the residue? Curious about any and all experiences related to the original pressing and success or horror stories from trying to clean it up some. Thanks.

RDJ is capable of so many varying styles that are all original to him, and him alone. He can make music that will allow you to drift off to other worlds, laugh your ass off from absurd musical gestures and dance till you drop with hard acid and drill and bass grindage. But this compilation stands out and is, IMHO, the absolute best of his musical output. I've been listening to this collection of EPs for almost 20 years now, and it does not get old or less entertaining. I still hold hope that he will release music that hearkens back to this era of melt your face off acid. Thank you Richard, for making me a dreamer of dreams.

complete with surface noise due to the plastic sleeves, which leave a mat foggy film on the records during storage- only the area on 2 sides where the sticker was affixed don't have the 'fog'

This is really good at 33 1/3, regardless of the artist's intentions.
