I can't believe I just saw a sealed box vinyl go for $4,237.65 on ebay! What in the world.!? This a great album to have I'm glad I didn't pay that much.. makes me wonder if they're going to open it though.

This is my favorite Aphex Album , very melodic, uplifting, emotional, full of life , also melancholic, dark and somehow hypnotic. Cd 1 is my favourite and my top track is " Mt Saint Michel + Saint Michaels Mount".

A monster of an album that is packed with pure gold. Give it a good chance, and then another, and the mastery will reveal itself, and you'll realize your enjoying some serious stuff you were missing all along. Never forget that journey on a bus and I was listening to Ziggomativ V17 reveal it's beautiful melodies. And yeah f*ck Pitchfork and their amateur review.

A seminal work by Mr. Richard D. James. Incredibly complex and challenging at times. Multi-layer complex drill core tracks meet prepared piano and dark ambient. An amazing achievement in 2001 composed in a tracker by sampling a multitude instruments and synthesizers. Often overlooked because of the non-compromising nature. An absolute peak in modern IDM. Also f*ck Pitchfork.

Got to agree with front_right and others, Drukqs is a wonderful album. I've been giving all of Richard's main albums a fresh listen this month, and Drukqs is so satisfying and fresh.

It's also interesting to listen to this one with hindsight, post-soundcloud and after the post-Syro EPs. Drukqs now looks like RDJ dropping the first hint that he was way more eclectic than we could imagine, with the prepared piano stuff and so forth. Petiatil Cx Htdui really stood out for me this time around, it's almost like something out of Ravel's Mere L'Oye.

Don't even really truly understand the contention over this album. It's psychotic but yet has a lot warm sublime treasures to be unearthed, what more could you want from an Aphex album.

Drukqs is one of Richard's finest works without a doubt.

I swear Aphex did an interview at the time of this release where he said he hoped people would listen to this album by taking the songs they want and making playlists, not listening to the entire thing straight through. I agree this makes sense for this album and it's the best way to listen to it. It still sounds remarkably fresh and vibrant. He also said that the only reason this was released was he left the tracks on his mp3 player on a plane, so thought they'd definitely be leaked so he may as well officially release them (though he's known for trolling the press so who knows)

This album is always mutating within itself, maintaining the change and the necessary balance for composition.

It is impossible to get bored.

It's so hard for me to rate this album, as is my relationship with RDJ's work in general. I always feel disturbed while listening to his tracks, even the ones that are probably not meant to invoke such a feeling. "Druqks" are no exception, and while I admire the energy and pure "c'mon-you-cunts" anger behind most of the tracks here, I think I've never listened to the entire double album in one take, ever. It's just too overwhelming and, well... tiring.
Even the "pretty" compositions, such as "Avril 14th", sound weirdly menacing, surrounded by the madness... It's like listening to a serial killer relaxing himself by playing a nice piano tune.
Still, 4 stars for the originality itself. It's a drill'n'bass essential.

Overrated album... if you're an adventure-less flocking type and or cursed with an ignorant ear. Not the good kind either. Might be Aphex's apex. Let's hope high.
