Not sure that you need me to introduce this one to you. The album that broke Aphex Twin to the masses (relatively speaking), Selected Ambient Works 85-92 starts with two genuinely sublime pieces of music, ‘Xtal’ and ‘Tha’, which your collection literally cannot be without. The whole thing is great though, whether for solo listening late at night or for esoteric dancefloors.

What more can be said about this that hasn't already been said? Utterly essential listening. Buy it, or don't and risk being a dick in the process.

Richard D James has a way with producing such bizarre sounds that never cease to boggle the mind, and his first LP is him at his smoothest. Standout 'Green Calx' blows my mind every time I hear it, while 'Ageispolis' has the perfect amount of reverb. Every track on here is such a weird assortment of strange noises that are so original and manage to resonate each and every time I hear them. Much more consistent but slightly less evocative than S.A.W. Vol. II, it's regarded by many as his best, and although I wouldn't feel completely confident saying the same, it is one of his best.
