which tracks have the best pad sounds (or use them the best)? maybe excluding the featured artists unless its something everyone might not have heard.
a few to start:
Loving the first track here - full album drops Nov 30th w/ limited edition cassette available for pre-order now.

So I've been an Aphex fan for a long time. See my profile, I've been on this forum since 2005. Longer than that really, its just that in 2005 everything got deleted and everyone had to sign up again.
T69 Collapse has me thinking about something thats always been a recurring thought with Aphex.
So T69 Collapse has three obvious different parts:
Part 1: 00:00 to 01:54 - lush
Part 2: 01:54 to 03:18 - discordant, noisy, difficult
Part 3: 03:18 to 05:18 - lush
So my question is:
Is the middle bit really necessary?
If it wasn't there, would the track just be dismissed as a nice sounding effort? Does its inclusion in the track make it a better piece of art?
I'm a long time fan of Aphex, but the tracks I really like are the ones that sound lush all the way through. There's a few on each album. I love Vordhosbn. I never listen to 54 Cymru Beats.
If I made my own edit of T69 Collapse with the middle bit chopped out, would that be some kind of sacrilege?
I wonder about his reasons for putting something like that in the middle of a track. Trying to push the envelope I guess. Any maybe also a way to make sure his stuff stays 'underground'?
