Xtal is my second favorite. Delphium and Actium are also cool tracks. However, I do not like Green Calx. If I also must say so, much of these tunes are very, very basic. By this I mean that the beats come from Roland Drum Machines just like every hip hop tune.
The TR and TR are so obvious and overused that it is just like opening the door to go outside in the morning when you go to work. The drenched reverb and echo give a dreamy effect, but the only beauty in this thing is in the melodic, lullaby-like sequences.
The audio recording also seems to be not a priority here as all the pops, clicks, and ticks in the sample loops can be heard. To sum it up, it is a bit too simple to be considered a masterful piece of work. Why do so many people comment about it as being the greatest ever, and yet not a single one of my current friends has ever heard of this guy?
It's still a heck of a lot more precious than some of the crap electronica that I collect. I think this is Pulsewidth - Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (CD electronic album to start your journey if you're new, or complete your essential collection if you've been into this music for a while. I absolutely can NOT go on and not write a review for each of the tracks Xtal - Perfect.
This is what got me into Aphex and electronica in general, heard it on the radio one day, it got a hold on me and never let go, wonderful! Use of vocal samples is quite impressive too, perfect first track for this album. Tha - This one is now my favourite off of SAW Light alien percussion and a melody to DIE for propel this track along slowly through the 9 minutes, Album), he could have made this longer and I wouldn't mind Pulsewidth - One of the more dancey tracks on the album, this one keeps your attention like MAD through the entire time, the sublime bass and beat are wonderful, pure Aphex goodness!
Ageispolis - This one will put pictures in your mind, the beat and hi-hat line are wonderful, and the layers of synth melodies are perfectly placed. I always view a long road or slow roller coaster at night, with lights moving past you at the perfect speed. I wish this went for longer though, the melody is one of those euphoric tunes you wish never ended. If you listen to the smoother sounding synth line, you will hear the melody that qualified this as "ambient".
The sound effects are great too. Heliosphan - Very DNB sounding breakbeat in this one, awesome melody, that reminds me of something going in reverse, this is another intricate one, very quick sounding, but a classic, this one definitely stands the test of time, sounding like it could have been produced years and years later! Schottkey 7th Path - Here we go, some dark ambient! I LOVE this one to death too, one of my faves They keyboard line again is pure brilliance.
Ptolemy - Another dancey track allowing you to shake off the creepiness of the previous track, this one has a great synth line and sounds like one of the later produced tracks of the album, almost tribal sounding too! As usual, the beat and percussion are amazingly well done. Hedphelym - More dark ambience already! This one has a very industrial sounding synth line and beat, the heart throb beat is very gloomy sounding, and definitely adds to the dark effect.
On a side note Aphex is one of the only producers I have found that can use the beat to make a track sound way darker too, wonderfully used in this one.
Don't listen to it too much or it will really get to you! Delphium - This is a nice one too, awesome sounding Pulsewidth - Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92 (CD, a great beat and a very nice relaxing synth line, one of the most chill songs I've heard, and definitely up there in this album, very lush!
There are really no songs on here that I dislike, Album) if I did have to pick, I'd say that Actium and Ptolemy are the weakest on the album, with everything else being nothing less than solid gold. This is more like silver, and I think other artists would still do well to make tracks that sound like this, they all have that Aphex touch that you can't quite put your finger on. Even if Album) don't listen to electronic music that much, if you have one electronic album, make it this one!!!
November 2, Edit Report Delete. And I learned. Ambient music has never sounded as good as it does on this collection. Escapist March 14, Report. For me, this collection was a break-through. It was a complete surprise to me in texture and melody- sounds I'd never heard before.
RDJ's finest pieces in their rawest forms. One of the best RDJ releases. Everything flows nicely, starting with "Xtal" which will entrance you with it's catchy hi hat line and vocal sample basically someone singing "da". Have: Want: Avg Rating: 4.
