Yeah, I get that re: Collapse, maybe even Cheetah (even if the A side is slower than anything on Syro), but how does it relate to any of the releases I've listed? Not trying to be a smartass, I just don't hear it. *shrug*

Cheetah has been a real sleeper for me. Find myself going back to it quite a bit more than I thought I would. I remember at the time it came out of left field unexpectedly, real low key. Good grooves.

Yes, Cheetah is my favorite from the EP's. Slow and lush. Cirklon3/Cheetah3 and 2X202-ST5 are A++++. Can't understand the general contempt. Maybe I'm just so special :whistling:

About the others, CCAI pt.2 is another gem which I still love as much as I did in the day it dropped. I have little mixed feelings about ODS, has some great tracks (NEOTEKT2 or pretend analogue from bonuses) but the overall feeling of the album leaves me bit cold. Korg tracks are more like a sampler EP for Monologue or something. Collapse is 4/5, (the title track is 10/5 though). DFN is one big behemoth. Style-wise it was totally unexpected and took a bit to get used to, but once it hit, it hit hard.

I already agreed with MIXL2 on the other syro thread, that I too think that Rich has has followed this particular style from syro onwards. All the post-syro releases have added their own angle to the saga, but the overall soundscape has more or less followed it. Which is fine by me since I dug syro, but if you're not a fan, it must be a bummer.

My 2 Bob on the subject:

 

Cheetah rocks (like classic phex redone, think Gak with a cirklon)

 

CCAI. I love this too but in a producer wanky dream way. I played it to my other half and joked that I wanted to get drums and robots and shit after I'm bored of synth. I say joked, I'd actually love to do this! Rich playing out my dreams of mad shit I could do with cash. Bless you Rich for continuing to play with electronic music. 

 

Edit:

 

Collapse. Well what's too say. incredible. As much as I'm fundamentally a Aphex traditionalist who just wants more SOSW ect. This spans every era of aphex. There's something for everyone in this ep surely.

analord is where richard achieved initiation into a higher musical reality. post-analord stuff is the work of a master.

Ya know it's funny, the more I keep rediscovering his recent post analord work, the more I feel the same way. I used to long for the early days ... Of course  I still can never get enough of it, but lately I've been more and more mezmorized by Analord, The Tuss, Syro, Cheetah, etc. It's just all so goddamn good. New Twin seems to have a creeping effect, it grows on you... Like you have to wear it in before you fall in love.
