he did use Led Zeppelin drums :) no sources at hand too, so this is purely from memory!

 

Yeah. Just discovered sped up break from "When The Levee Breaks" in "Taking Control" after 4:42 mark.

Loving the kitchen lads on a cig break with their 'couldn't give less of a fuck about an Aphex Twin blimp' stances

 

Hehe that's funny cos I used to work in that store before it was Rise and circa 2006, I remember scribing an aphex logo into the grimmy window looking out on that car park.

Big Aphex special in today's Klassekampen. I'll see if I can upload some scans eventually.

 

Also, look at that press image, it's the Black Metal Aphex Twin! Probably especially for the Norwegian press, lol.

Hey you made it? Well, I took it from funky souls, all credit to you! :)

Same here, Joyrex, what's wrong with us Canadians? hehe.

No worries, granted it was buried a few pages back (from this morning! yikes). I love how quickly this stuff spreads though.

Cheers for the credit, though eh? :trollface:

You need a proper watermark for your work man :biggrin:

 

 

How do you know I don't already do that, HJ? *mysterious photoshop transparency tagging*

I'll borrow something from the Funky Souls crew to readdress the balance, here's what all your Japanese editions are going to look like when they finally arrive:

Unconventional obi placement with the intention of not disturbing the main sleeve design. Good job, tDR.

All the fans were asking non stop for the live tracks to be released. So he released them. That's nice of him.

this sums it up perfectly.

 

you guys are fucked up.

アフェックス・トウィン (in Katakana) - æfeks twɪn

 

Although they appear to have written SYRO differently:

 

シロー (in Katakana) - sɪrəʊ - on the package they use the "サ" character instead of "シ", and don't end it with "ー"

one thing I've noticed about the negative nancys on here is that they seem annoyed because this album isn't delivering on THEIR expectations of what an Aphex album should be. never mind what Aphex wanted to do or perhaps opening themselves up to some new ideas, it's not what I personally want so waaa waaa waaa I'm gonna bitch and moan and say "not mind blowing" at least 3 times because basically I'm a stupid selfish cunt and all i ever say is waaa waaa waaa moan moan fucking moan i want SAW III blah blah blah.

 

bollocks to all of you.

 

As Chesney (the newbie!) pointed out: nobody was that negative.

I personally didn't have any expectations (except maybe that it will be a great album, but can I be blamed for that?).

 

“It's not what I personally want.” -> try again!

“It's not what I personally want but I LOVE it because it's what my neighbour wanted.”

Here’s my thoughts, probably won’t go down so well on a forum full of Aphex fans but there are people who perhaps can appreciate a review without making personal attacks. We’ll see.

Some caveats:

  • Firstly, if you are an utter fan-boy, probably best you don’t read it.

 

  • Secondly, I switched off comments because I know there are some who just will not be able to resist the urge. It’s just a review. Nothing more. So don’t make it more.

 

  • Third and finally, anything anyone negatively writes on the internet isn’t going to tarnish the reputation of Aphex Twin. His place in electronic music is secure. We all know that.

I would not have wasted my time writing up a review of someone whose music I didn’t genuinely admire.

Its a good read actually. I agree with a lot of your points but still overall really enjoy the album.. (like the lack of repetition in the melodies, It does keep me coming back for more for example and I think he does it well) The only part I take issue with is the bit about obsessed forum people posting in their underwear in their rented apartments (oh my! low blow!). I'm usually fully nude and I own my place. In fact, I make sure to strip bare before posting anything here.

Why do you guys get so bent out of shape when people don't like the album? Rich even himself says it's not his best work. I really like this album and I don't care if someone doesn't like it. I think it's interesting to hear what other people have to say, even if it is negative.

here's the answer. It's like asking the kids in this documentary "why do you guys smoke fake air joints and pretend to get high?"

 

Vice magazine special about christians who smoke fake drugs 4:00-5:45 (look for the guy snorting a fake line of coke off the bible)
