5.0 out of 5 stars Contains one of the best Aphex songs ever. 22 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Ok, i know the other tracks are not very good. Milkman isnt that bad but you will forget the rest after listening to the 'Girl Boy ' Song.

I remember hearing this on the radio (john peel i think) and instantly fell in love with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius or insane 2 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
It is easy to say that about all Aphex twin stuff - the guy is clearly a child scaring loon. The music is totally unique, a pleasure to hear someone pushing things in new directions. It still sounds fresh though it was released a while ago.

2.0 out of 5 stars There's no need... 1 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
Granted, Girl/Boy Song is one of his greatest moments, the rest of this EP is horrendous. Milkman is amusing at first, but gets irritating upon repeat listens. Inkey$ and the Girl/Boy Song remixes (which, incidentally, appear to have no relevance to the original track) are throw away, forgettable numbers, and Beetles, whilst a cute little piece, covers only a single minute of the EP.
Oh well. I suppose you could describe it as 'fun'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliance 14 July 1999
By Khalil(khaobs9@aol.com) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Since its recent inception as popular music, Electronica has been accused of lacking "soul" and feeling. While this can be said of many works within the genre, many stand out as fully developed pieces of music (containing the aformentioned soul and feeling, as well as depth, complexity and overall musicality.)Richard D. James as Aphex Twin has accomplished this to stirring a affect. "Girl Boy" may be the most beautiful electronia song ever constructed. It is a fully developed symphony; a euphonimous epic (while never being pretentious) tune, open to differing interpretation. The song in itself is reason enough to like this E.P. Beyond "Boy Girl," "Beetles" is quick striking; though in a rather simplistic manner; as well. "In Keys" is a typically hyper Aphex Twin--something more reminiscient of his most mainstream hit "Come To Daddy."Still, all this means nothing when "Girl Boy" is the opening track. The piece is simply magnificent--one of electronica musics' entrys into the realm of all-time masterpieces of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars I wish the milkman would deliver my milk in de morning 4 April 2000
By Matthew D. Phillips - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Funny stuff - you get some half finished scraps that never made it to the Richard D. James album and you even get to hear (I presume it's him) him sing - you've gotta love milkman!

5.0 out of 5 stars state of art electronica, a must have 7 Aug 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Now the first time I listened to Richard James's music I knew he was one of a mankind. This ep is a proof that intelligence exists among electronic music makers. Girl-Boy in its variuos remixes and specially the accompaining title "Milk man" are just brilliant, featuring thrilling percussion patterns, breathtaking melodies and harmonies and a twisted but wonderful sense of humour. He's just enormous, a name that will become a landmark in the crazy records of music history.

3.0 out of 5 stars Almost like watching Mark McGuire bunt...Dissapointing 22 Mar 2000
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I ordered this CD last week mainly because of Girl/Boy Song, since I think that is one of the best electronica songs ever created in terms of depth and feeling, however, the rest of the CD leaves alot of room for improvement. The average length of the rest of the songs are about 1:30, so its not exactly extended listening. Also, Im a big fan of Twin, but it doesnt sound like he is even tryin with these songs. I honestly believe he threw in the other 5 songs from scraps he found lying around....In the end, half decent because of Girl/Boy the rest is crap.

2.0 out of 5 stars I bought this for the Title Track 10 Oct 2000
By old_hyperbolic_squiggly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD for the Girl-Boy song I heard on the radio. I found that song to be very novel and quite marvelous at the time for its marriage of breakbeat electronica with classical string instrumentation. The production on it is not the best, though. You can't up the bass to listen to the break-beats with any force without having the orchestral bass strings overpoweringly-thumbing out too buzzy-like. Well, this song lost its gloss pretty quickly for me. I think it's an interesting electronic novelty song now. I have since sold this EP to the resale shop. The rest of this CD sounded like an attempt to be a sort of electro version of They Might Be Giants. Mildly amusing at times, for the most part Mr. James didn't seem to hit the mark. I agree, these short tunes with his whimsically innocent vocals DO sound like scraps of sillyness he dug out from bits of crumpled paper perhaps lying around his floor. Probably an EP for fans only, but not essential for me.
