Arguably one of Aphex Twin’s greatest albums, I Care Because You Do is the last of his analogue era. You get some technoish numbers, the dog-bothering banger ‘Ventolin (Video Version)’ and ‘Alberto Balsam’, which samples a chair scrape and some metal pipes to remarkably emotionally resonant effect. Also, a classic Aphex-grin cover.

Richard David James most forgotten album, 'I Care Because You Do', is in my opinion is one of his finest. The album features a lot of range but my personal favourites are his more ambient and progressive songs. "Alberto Balsalm" is a nice, laid-back gem while "The Waxen Pith" is an eerie yet ambient song. At points the album gets very haunting; "Icct Hedral" features a pounding beat over scary background effects while "Come On You Slags!" is a dark, morbid song that is oddly exhilarating. 'I Care Because You Do' offers a ton of variety. I dig the songs with pounding beats and I also enjoy the more subtle and lo-key tunes.
