    Incredible pressing. Warp is absolutely one of the best labels out there. I listen to this thing all the time. The second-best Aphex Twin record behind Drukgs, in my opinion.
    • Milk_chan's avatar
      my only complaint is a minor skip on A2, but i dont really care, its at the beginning of the song anyway. definitely a top releases from afx 🙏

        Absolutely beautiful in every way.

        I am a massive fan of the quality of Warp's pressings in general (optimal, usually?).

        Yes, triple gatefolds are a bit fiddly, and it's delicate and white, but for releases like this, the stereolab triple vinyl reissues etc, I just splap the outer sleeve in a pooly outer and then fill a separate outer with the discs in mofi inners and the release inners sandwiched between. Way less touching and way less chance of warping, wear on sleeves etc.

        Musically this is the most fusing on one album between the AFX acid phunk stuff, Analord, ambient pieces and cinematic moody score stuff.

        The guy can mix even the most insane of his tunes to make such a familiar and intuative listen. I just love how affordable and available this level of quality can be.

          I love this album on vinyl, but the artwork is sure to get battered... It is also pretty awkward to handle as a whole, but either way, a great LP.
          • AuJus's avatar
            Very clean sounding copy, nice deep bass and fantastic tunes!

              Great album, but my third disk has the label so off centre on one side that it sit across 3/4 of the runoff groove. Keeps me alert as I have to lift of the stylus immediately the final track finishes or stylus damage ensues. On the plus side it looks pretty weird watching the disk spin.

                It’s. A. Masterpiece.
                The only negative is that the packaging is a bit complicated, and I’ve got to do a … little … extra work.
                Either way - always worth it!

                  Some tracks are convincing 2010s progressions from his 1990s work. The sense of humour from the earlier albums is pretty much gone, sadly. "PAPAT4" sounds like a cover of "We all stand together" by Paul McCartney and The Frog Chorus. That could count as humour, but it's dismal rather than amusing. "Produk 29" is blighted by samples of an irritating middle-class woman bitching to friends about another woman who behaved like a "disgusting f*cking whore" when they were "at that club".

                  The best tracks are generally more dense than the old work – dense as in featuring dozens of different synth and drum voices, even if only a few of them are heard at any one time. The highlight is "Xmas_Evet10", which keeps morphing from one thing to another while maintaining a coherent whole. (The "Xmas_Evet1 N" mix, released on a stamped single, is briefer but even better.)

                    insane album
                    reasonable price
                    amazing sound
                    literally everything else

                    need to change sides a lot (no big deal)
                    sleeves it ships in are tight and will probably leave micro scratches (get other inner sleeves)

                      Great quality control on these. Richard's clearly one of those artists who care about ensuring that their physicals sound great instead of shoving mixed-quality vinyl releases out the door at a ridiculous markup. Only other artist I've seen retail a 3LP at a reasonable price is Boards of Canada.

                      Don't tell anyone I said this, but this stuff is miles better than most of his earlier works.
