    Anyone know why tracks are missing? My copy in the 90s had more tracks than this.
    • ToniOrtizCarrasco's avatar
      In some tracks samples from Sinclair ZX-Spectrum videogames (cassette loads)

        Less is more, a focused record, unlike "Selected Ambient Works Volume II" there are no fillers on this release.

          Is anyone aware of a 'Collapse' sleeve reissue of this cd?

            Does anybody know if any of the LPs play at 45rpm? Thanks

              Yellow Calx is the most perfect moment on an already flawless album.

                I remember first hearing this album and going, 'uh oh, this is getting a little plinky plonky for me',, I'm avoiding. 15 or so years later and it still sounds plinky plonky,,, but I like it more these days.

                  So much of the generic population refer to this album when critiquing Aphex's style or ability to write music without considering his whole career of writing music. Such folley and misguidance. Some people need to actually take some time and delve a little, and learn. Aphex's music abilities were way advanced before this ablum was put out. The Hangable auto bulb eps were a precursor to this album's style and were amazing, as was Melodies from Mars with folk medlies. Drum n bass was not Aphex's only forte, thus the releases of Analord series to turn the bubbleheads away. Wash and rinse.

                    This was, in my opinion, a fantastic album. It contained the breakneck speed "drill 'n' bass" that I love to hear from RDJ. As has been said in above comments, you either love it or hate it. In my opinion, before one decides that they hate it, they must first listen to it at least twice, as many things seem to pop out upon second listens. A fantastic listen overall.

                      This one was ok the first time I listened to it. The obvious good tracks at first were the ones like '4'. I listened to it through several more times. Suddenly, it popped out at me. There we are. Beautiful album, in it's entirety. I don't know if the version with the Girl/Boy single right on it is on this album, but that is what I have. Quite nice, it is. I think, next to the monumental '4', one of my favorite songs on here is "Carn Mouth", or "Corn Mouth". I like "Fingerbib" quite a lot, it for some reason reminds me of some futuristic Japanese action movie theme song. The beauty in this album is in it's subtle changes, though that is much more relevent in his "I Care Because You Do", not that that makes that one a better album, the truth is they are both quite good.
