9/10 Gregor Omelasz Customer review, 14th January 2017
Arguably his best EP from a time where he was arguably at the height of his fame. This came before 'Windowlicker' but after the 'Richard D. James' album. It's both heartfelt and acidic to the point whether or not 'IZ-US' is a tribute to his brother or if 'Bucephalus Bouncing Ball' will ever stop bouncing. It's also from a time where you almost felt convinced of Aphex's release path before the beast that was 'Drukqs' and certainly before the 'Analord' anthology series and his Tuss releases. You can argue that this was one of the last releases of RDJ being RDJ before going off into the deep end and almost disappearing for over a decade.
This holds its own, even in a banquet of classics by Aphex Twin, but it's just a pity we never saw a 2x12" release, that's been in my Discogs wantlist for God knows how long. If Warp would be kind to repress this along with Drukqs and Hangable Auto Bulb, I'd be a happy man, and so would Norman, because I'd be buying them from here.
9/10 Matt Sanchez Customer review, 11th November 2016
Another absolutely unique track from the baron of barmy, Richard. D James. This track will make you sweat and break out in fear and is therefore not for the faint-hearted. Fully caustic and demented this would be perfect as part of a soundtrack in the most sadistic of haunted houses. Complimented perfectly by Chris Cunningham's weird and eerie video (seriously youtube it now!) this is another essential for your collection. If you are into metal music this might serve as a good beginner's opener to the strange strange world of Aphex Twin.
