4.0 out of 5 stars Electronic listening music: slowly relaxes and surprises..., 8 Dec. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Surfing On Sine Waves (Audio CD)
By Richard James in one of his guises, the most famous being Aphex Twin. Sine Waves takes in an experimental approach, with unusual samples being sublimely crafted.
The whole music is techno style, but not full-on club style. You may want to relax and listen in your front room, or as great, non-irritating company when you work away at home (I'm a Web designer). It's so cool.
If you are into mainstream or chart music, this may take getting used to and require patience. If you like dance music but don't want to have to move like mad all the time, this is a great tonic. It's chill out stuff with it's feet on the ground, not designed to take you to 'another zone'. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mmmmmmmm, 1 Feb. 2013
By 
This review is from: Surfing On Sine Waves (Audio CD)
Classic album of its time. There is a melancholy..and light only evident when the artist was young and had his finger on the button. Later Richard James seemed to be searching for a sound. Here he just "is". Takes me back and still stands up today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ambience & 90's Techno Combined Masterfully, 28 May 2014
By 
Solar Fox (Where dawn and dusk takes place) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Surfing On Sine Waves (Audio CD)
Polygon Window (Aphex Twin) creates a haunting, strange, alien-like ambiance to this album. Combined with captivating rhythms by 90's style techno beat patterns. The music is quite left of centre and sometimes quite mystical aswell as futuristic. With consistent listening, this album takes you deep into the weird, yet sublimely crafted works of an unusual, yet fascinating electronic music creater.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with Selected Ambient Vol 1, 24 Nov. 2000
This review is from: Surfing On Sine Waves (Audio CD)
This is like the techno equivalent of Selected Ambient Works Volume 1 (by the Aphex Twin). It certainly doesn't sound like the average techno album, mainly because the sounds used are mostly unique (he used to make his own synths). The tracks sound haunted and they always make me think how lonely the surfer on the cover looks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Aphex, 6 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are some nice tracks here along with some that I probably won't listen to again. If you're a fan of Mr James, though, you should definitely pick this up (if you haven't done so already).

4.0 out of 5 stars Cornish techno!, 1 Mar. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Surfing On Sine Waves (Audio CD)
I am a huge fan of aphex twin (Polygon window) and I didn't think this was as good as some of his other albums but never the less a pretty good album all the same.
check out the Richard D. James album it's probably his best!
