Yellow Calx should be the highest ranked RDJ album track, not the lowest.


Mostly though, the list reminded me of the fact that the SAWs and AB3 are still untouchable in my mind. CAT 00897-AA1 ranked 46 and losing to Mr Frosty, oh the humanity.

No lichen on the list, I demand a trial.


But I guess RDJ has so many songs if I were to list 50 I'd miss gems.


Lichen is the 2nd highest ranked track on the list.


More importantly though, where is matchsticks?

Even though I despise 'the best of all time' lists as sheer puke. I'm just happy to read about Aphex Twin on another website than this. Okay this top 50 is way off my top 50, AB1 I'd have top 3, but apart from that... I couldn't care less on this journo's opinion. But I'm glad none the less just to see his name and some words on him.

They mention WATMM...

this list is pretty random





also, Stone in Focus would be in the top 10 if the writer knew the use.. pretty stupid list. Actually a bottom 50 would be funnier. Who's up for it? I'll put in Didgeridoo, be honest it's kind of garbage.

There are a few on this list that would be on my own, but lol at the #1 best all time Aphex track. Pretty sure they just closed their eyes and pointed at a track title for that one. Fact.


And now I feel compelled to go through the AFX discog once again --been a while. Goodbye all other music for the next two weeks...

Still for me the best AphexTwin track is 4. 4 is the track of the century.


"4" is the first Aphex Twin song I listened to, so it's a special track for me. I had bought a used copy of RDJ album from a half-price books after a friend recommended him. I remember being on a road trip and listening to it on headphones. That said, I swear I saw the video for "On" as a kid on MTV or even Nickelodeon (they used to air long bumps during cartoons and commercials).

top of the pops lists have no place with Aphex fans, but its still good fun to read someone elses opinion and take pot shots at it! all good fun


at least you can argue about a top 50 lol, and how many artists can you do that with? very fucking few.


at least this list makes you think about how much Richard has released, we may complain about 'no new album' but truth be told he has already given us plenty.


nobody can fuck with Aphex, nobody. he's the fucking king.


and i'm rather rat-arsed
