I never really noticed until just now (even though I've had this CD for at least 15 years), but track 4, Pure "Optical Illusion" actually sounds an awful lot like Aphex Twin "On" (released the previous year). It has more subdued drums than the heavily distorted beats in "On", and the melodic layers aren't exactly the same, but it's quite a similar construction of harp-like sounds with similar pads and general pace/tempo. It seems very likely that it was inspired by Aphex Twin's track.
