If you love your HARD techno then get this.This can be very 'GRITTING TEETH' stuff but i really was blown away.If like me you love you music any style then you will want this.I've read some of the reviews here where some people say it may be hard listening.So when i was thinking of buying this i was a bit wary (i knew what to expect but was still a bit unsure),but i thought what the heck go for it.I'm glad i did i absolutely love this now.You can imagine this going down a storm in the techno clubs.This guy,at the time of these recording was(and still is!)ahead of his time.This is a real breath of fresh air,what with all the 'Pumping Trance/Hard House'getting very very boring at the moment.Oh and by the way,it sounds great in the car as well.JUST BUY IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary 4 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
Bizarre. Almost inaccessible. Great.
The first time I listened to this was through headphones in the street. The most remarkable booming moved in over the top of Isopropanol and I thought "Blimey these headphones are good."
It was a train going past... Only with Aphex Twin can you mistake a train three feet away for music.
Unique.

4.0 out of 5 stars Check sanity at the door 8 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album's not for the faint-hearted, no way. I'd say there's around two, MAYBE three songs that seem accessible to your everyday person. Luckily this man couldn't gives a monkeys toss about pleasing everyone, and it more than shows in these 12 tracks (the final two performed under one of many future aliases)

The opener "Digeridoo" gets things off to a fairly hardcore start, but songs like the sinister "Tamphex", "Phlange Phace" and "Dodeccaheedron" actually take the album further and further into madness territory. Which I love don't get me wrong. It's just that even for me I find the whole album a bit hard to digest in one sitting.

"Digeridoo", "Polynomial C", "Analogue Bubblebath" and "Metapharstic" are obvious winners and keepers for me and for someone who likes to listen to stuff that's not outside the box, but miles down at the half-way line, definitely give this one a whirl. She's a tough listen though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Early Aphex that you should own 16 Feb 2006
Format:Audio CD
With the 'Singles Collection', which I also reviewed, this is a must for all Richard D James fans.
'Digeridoo' is included in its original and live versions and is an early example of his astounding synthesizer talent as is 'Polynomial-C'.
Some of the track listing of this album reads like a medicine cabinet and that may or may not be a reference to James' health problems as a child.
Also included is 'Tamphex' which contains a looping sample of a British 80s Tampax commercial "Are you one of those girls for whom time stands still once a month?"
Any owners of releases by other RDJ projects, especially 'Caustic Window', will notice some major correlations. There's at least three tracks on this album that sound like prototype tracks for much of his other works. There's even one that has the cut-and-paste beat & synth squeals of the 'Window Licker' intro. Many tracks here use a lot more conventional 90s rave beats and synths than much of the other Aphex back-catalogue so, a combination of all these elements, make this album an essential for fans. It's recognisably him but in an almost 90s zeitgeist infancy.
All the tracks on the album were recorded by James while still signed to R&S records so that makes the album quite a rarity.
I found my copy completely by accident about 8 years ago. Up to that point I thought I had most of his readily available works so this was a fantastic treat.

Upon sliding the disc into my machine i was presented with the track Digeridoo which started out with cheesy synth effects authentic to the title...and then the beats, which are to say fantastic and best enjoyed on full volume. They say that the dj has a computer set up to write tracks using the noises he makes when he sleeps like his heart and it shows in the later tracks. If you hear random noise at the beginning of a track i guarantee a pumping drumline will be iminent. It needs afew listens to wear it in and some will dismiss it, but stick with it and you'll begin to appreciate the intricate detail in all the blips and squeaks (reminds me of The Two Lone Swordsmen). Those who do will have a valuabe entry to their collection if you just accept the wierdness. To put is short, buy this or miss out!
