  1. But for me the Tuss was his peak. I sat through my first listen to Rushup Edge in total awe and that was one of the last Aphex releases I got around to. I just feel like he hasn't released anything truly incredible since the Tuss. I admit, 1st 44 is a good track but it's really only the best of a mediocre lot. I just don't understand how the dividing line between God-tier Aphex and complete shit Aphex is so definitive. His technical skills are obviously the best they've ever been right now, Collapse proves that without any shadow of a doubt, it's just a shame that the music itself is so fucking awful. And yet going back to any pre-Syro release, nothing's changed. Perfection is still perfection.
  2. It's been four and a half years since release and I just cannot get this album to click. What the fuck is it? Every Aphex release was an immediate classic for me, full of fucking magic I'd never found anywhere else, or never have since. Aphex Twin is just the best of best for me, absolutely untouchable, completely reliable, then out of nowhere Syro comes along and I just think it's awful. I hate every second of it and I don't understand why. I've always thought that if I could figure out why I loathe it so much maybe I'd find the best Aphex album lurking past my blindness but I don't know. I just don't understand how an artist who's blown my mind over and over and over can suddenly drop something which sounds like complete muck to me. Obviously not to a lot of you - this is just how I feel, but I don't understand. I just cannot figure out what is WRONG with this album.
