2.0 out of 5 stars Migraine Inducing Electronica, 29 Jun 2006
This review is from: Drukqs (Audio CD)
You can always expect an Aphex Twin album to be a little twisted. Richard D James is famed for his unconventional approach to music (he often turns in remixes to record lables without actually listening to the original and once handed in a random gabba track as a Lemonheads remix).

I am a big fan of Aphex Twins work and I think he is a true pioneer of electronic music. That said, I still can't stand listening to Drukqs. It's definately his most inaccessible work. It wouldn't suprise me in the least if the whole album is a big joke at our expense (Aphex Twin once turned up to play a gig and simply put the record needle on a piece of sandpaper before throwing the microphone into a food blender). It seems he has just filled two discs with unfinished racket and improvised ambient noodlings. Some of the drill n' bass tracks are truly horrendous and gave me a headache. The drum patterns and production are inspired at times but the end product is unlistenable and I wouldn't advise this album to anyone but the most hardcore Aphex fans.
