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.

The vinyl sleeve destroys the vinyl record. It's true, the records are very cloudy. And if you touch them in the places where the vinyl was in contact the grooves feel like the difference between a chef and butter knife. I got it in 1998 played it once and now it's garbage, save the sleeve. Luckily Analord came in non-vinyl sleeves from Forced Exposure.

I've owned this since it was re-released in 2002, ordered directly from Warp. It's an awesome example of the harsher side of the Richard D James spectrum. For people who have already passed the initiation of albums like "Come To Daddy", "...I Care Because You Do", and even some of the Analord series. The labels on them say they're supposed to be played at 45rpm. Although lately I've been digging it at 33rpm with my sub up at 75% of volume. It gives it a more ominous feel. Like some sort of acid dub monstrosity.

after 10 years of owning this triple pack, my records have this foggy film all over them now and have hiss from the plastic jackets.
Its best to put them in inner sleeves or they will be ruined.

coming from someone who quite appreciates abrasive noise, this is one of the coolest RDJ finds. I just recently happened upon this and man, he can make your ears bleed like the best of them! ;)
the acid on these tracks is amazing, and the beats are like plummoling tree trunks pounding your skull.
definitally not for those interested in his more ambient 'prettier' stuff. don't get me wrong i love all of his music, i just happen to have a soft spot for good noisey tracks.
in conclusion, if you want a hardcore dance record that will knock you on your ass, you're in the right place. no drugs required. when you're through with this, all the acid will have melted your face off already.

I have to say that this was one of the most dissapointing releases I have ever encountered from the man known as "Aphex Twin", Richard D. James. It features a lot of hardcore techno, repetition, and only a few ambient pieces. Arguably the great ambient tracks make up for the mediocre harder tracks, but the musical coherence of the album is just abominable. Nowhere near the genius that Aphex Twin displays consistently on his other releases.

Classic Richard D. James! No matter if you like "hard" electronic music or not, this album is worth owning. Some will find some of the tracks to be overly repetitive ("We are the Music Makers [Hardcore Mix]" and "The Garden Of Linmiri" particulary), but superb tracks like "On The Romance Tip", "Astroblaster", and the short-but-cute "Pigeon Street" make up for those.

If you like dark and disturbing, it's worth acquiring this album solely for the track, "Garden of Linmiri". Technohead-speed rough (and I mean rough) beats underlaid with a creepy discordant background drone interspersed with violent white noise blips (to remind you that you're alive!). Some garden...
