Timeless, beautifull, essential......

If you have never heard this record then you should just stop reading now and buy it!
This album is the pinnacle of Richard D.James' output as the Aphex Twin. Two hours of the most beautiful, deep, calming, unsettling, haunting, alien music you will ever hear. I must have listened to this over a thousand times since it's initial release some 20 odd years ago and have gone through numerous copies of which this is my latest.
This album takes the idea of "discreet" or ambient music, as initially made popular by Brian Eno and pushes it beyond anything you can imagine. Track 3, commonly referred to as "Rhubarb" (none of the tracks have conventional names just abstract photos) is simply the most gorgeous piece of music I have ever laid ears on.
This album is essential and you need it in your life.
