new aphex twin - AFX - analord
    #3923532 - 03/16/05 12:32 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Once again, Mr. D James has fucked with his fanbase once again. I just finished the whole series up to this point and i must say that there's some pretty good shit buried in there. Unfortunately, there's some really cheesy shit too, like only aphex twin can produce. Some of the tracks sound like he was just bored as fuck, and I just KNOW that he could make better shit than this, and he probably has a fat vault filled with amazing material that he just won't released. But overall this was a pretty satisfying release... especially analord 05. I'm gonna pick apart all the good songs and burn them on a CD (fuck paying god knows how much for limited vinyl prints).

peace

he DOES have a vault filled with amazing material! I read in an interview that he won't release his most groundbreaking work because he doesn't want to get ripped off.

RDJ is hardly someone to take seriously when being interviewed by music journalists...I think he has lost his creativity and is out of new ideas, but yet his ego is still bloated. He is better off chilling out and running Rephlex instead of being full of shit. Analord is mostly good, but it certainly was hyped before their initial release. Analord was supposedly his greatest work ever - I just dont hear that. I prefer the original records from the late 1980s that he is trying to emulate.

don't bother listening to anything he has to say to any journalist... that's ridiculous. and maybe it's just me, but people shouldn't be making music to please a fan base...music should be an artistic expression, not a product designed to please people. RDJ can do whatever he likes...I'll buy what I like and ignore the rest, same as i'll do for anyone else.

aphex is pretty much hit or miss at this point, but i think he's kinda always been that way just a little.

selected ambient works vol 2 tho, *drool* beautiful!

rdj does have his best shit for his ears only. i read that hes scared of getting ripped off. the only reason he released druqs was because he was listening to his burned cd copy on the plane and somehow lost his cd player. fear of his songs being leaked onto the web without earning a cent, he release druqs.

i wouldntve worries if i was him. afterall, how many people on that plane were aphex fans? how many of them had ever heard of aphex? probally less than you could count on one hand if any at all.

actually I believe he was under contract to release drukqs, and probably stood to be sued if he didn't release something...saying that he only released it because he was afraid of being ripped off is dumb... and listening to any rumors about RDJ is stupid too. artists don't make that much money off of albums...don't you guys know that already?
