In a career full of brilliant music, this could possibly be one Aphex Twin's high-water marks, widely popular at the time of release. It introduced his pulverising 'drill and bass' techniques, moving him away from his acid 'n' ambience beginnings. Contains several classics such as 'Cornish Acid', 'Girl/Boy Song' etc.

An album I've really never checked out until just recently. Under the memorable alias Aphex Twin, Richard D. James himself showcases his stunning usage of synthesizers and some of the strangest beats one will ever come across in an electronic release like this; for a clear-cut example, hear the bizarre illustriousness that is "Logan Rock Witch". The imagery conjured up alone is impressive, and that cover art depicting Richard's signature grin isn't even the tip of the iceberg. Calling a Richard D. James album a flawless masterpiece is going to be arguable for days and nights, but you're crazy if you haven't experienced this technologic canvas.
