I prefer mostly his old stuff. Can't say I listen to any of his new stuff. TBH I hardly listen to Aphex anyways. You lot probably gonna hate me lol but yeah am I alone? I ain't trollin' I genuinely struggle with his music these days ... I guess we move on in tastes though. Thoughts? :-)

lol (and yes, I like the old stuff just as much as his new stuff - honestly most of his music is timeless, so I really don't see any difference between 'old' and 'new' when it comes to Aphex)

I have a certain soft spot for anything '95 and older, but I know that's just my old man nostalgia acting up.

Yeah, lols aside SAW85-92 is probably my most revisited album by him. But I listen to a lot of his stuff all the time and when something new drops I’ll spin it countless times.

I still go back to the old stuff. I think I will never get tired of wind squidge for example. 

 

I'm really intruigued by this SAW outtake track from the start of the Field day gig. Stuff like this should be also released now...

I love 85-92, but the mastering quality always makes me turn it off about 3/4 of the way through Xtal...

random live/dj sets

collapse

SoSW

Aphex website extras

SC dump

Tuss tracks

Analord

 

Least listened to:

RDJ, ICBYD, Drukqs

... but love hearing the tracks in live sets

Maybe I’m just accustomed to it by now or maybe it’s the comfort of nostalgia but I love the sound of that album through and through.
