the last 3 tracks are exclusive to this limited edition of artificial intelligence II. (they are not released elsewhere, nor are they on the regular version of "artificial intelligence II".)

darrel fitton is bola, and this is the first bola track i ever heard. (his first release maybe?) i remember it being exemplary of the bleepy ambient chill-out music of the time, and it remains my all-time favorite bola track. the dated '94 feel of it is something i really like.

polygon window of course is aphex. this is a weird track, presumably made of teapot sounds (though i can't figure what sort of teapot sounds they could be). it's an interesting and original track--but not danceable at all.

this release is essential for the aphex or bola collector, as well as any collector who wants to own one of the most important records in the history of "electronic listening music" or "intelligent techno" (later renamed IDM--i would like to know by whom). if you're lucky, you can find a copy of the limited version of this 2xcd in a record store at a reasonable price, because often the record store peeps don't realize there's a difference between this one and the standard single cd version.
