His best.
 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-02-28 09:48 [#00000605]



I was just wondering what you all thought his best was.
"Selected Ambient Works Vol. II" is not only my favorite
album of his, but my favorite album of everybody's. Yet, as
far as his more conventional music goes, I would have to say
that his "Hangable Auto Bulb" albums are my favorite. They
can hardly be found anywhere, but they are more than worth
the trouble of looking. My opinion may change over time, but
for mow, that's where I stand.


 

Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-02-28 10:16 [#00000608]



It's hard to pick only one...but to mention a few
top-releases in no specific order, here we go:

Hangable Auto Bulb
Classics
Surfing on Sine Waves
Come To Daddy
Selected Ambient Works Volume II

...yeah - and a few others =)



 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-02-28 22:10 [#00000621]



Oh, I have all of that, except I had to pirate the "Hangable
Auto Bulb"s. I've been listening to the man for years and
have a more extensive collection of the man's music than
just about anybody in here (without MP3's). I can say that
comfortably. God bless Austin.
Anyway, I was just saying that those are, to me, his best
albums. "SAW II" is his biggest step forward out of anything
he's ever made, and that's saying a lot. It is the most
perfect music I have come across to this day. I tend to
favor the "Hangable Auto Bulb" EP's more than his other
albums, because they are so condensed and intricate, as well
as beautiful. If I were to rate my favorite RDJ album by
which has the most of my favorite songs, they would be it.
"Arched Maid via RDJ", "Custodian Discount", "Everyday",
Outside (Kickass Violin Solo)", etc. Outside of his
ambience, "Hangable Auto Bulb" appeals to me the most. I
wonder why it didn't get more copies printed or recognition.
Nevertheless, I stand on that opinion.

What 'Outside'? The hoax?


 

Rik from Cambs, UK on 2001-03-01 09:57 [#00000635]



Outside is a hoax? Who did it then?

That track was used in an advert for some gimpy gardenning
program a while ago..


 

Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-03-01 10:14 [#00000643]



Yeah, check out the info on 'Outside' right here.

Compare the sample to your copy and verify it's the same.
(And RJ Jackson could do this as well).


 

Id Lab from www.brakehorse.com on 2001-03-01 20:05 [#00000649]



I hate to be populist, but I say Boy/Girl is his best track.
I haven't heard the Hangable Auto Bulbs though, so maybe a
download session is in order once I get my flat-rate
connection this weekend. As for the best album, I'd agree
with SAWII.


 

Rik Fuzz from Peterborough, Cambs, UK on 2001-03-01 20:10 [#00000650]



Yeah that's the same one. ;-)


 

daan_e from Utrecht on 2001-03-01 20:27 [#00000651]



I regard "Richard D. James' Album: Aphex Twin" as THE
masterpiece. Never heard him that good. (By the way: I only
have one song from Hangable Autobulb. It's good, but not
better than RDJ Album, in my mind.)


 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-03-03 05:48 [#00000689]



Hangable Auto Bulb to me is less cluttered and drill'n'bas
than RDJ Album. It's this really well produced, organized,
and fluent music that not enough of his fans have heard.
It's hard to pick a best song for me. I'd have to name them
in catagories, like Most Beautiful, Most Chaotic, or Most
Diverse. Of course, he's made so much music, found over,
under, and beneath things, it's nearly impossible to say
which is the best in any catagory, considering there's just
so much of the shit. I had heard a rumor once, that he keeps
all of his "good" music for himself. Like, the music he
really cherishes is sitting in some room at that big fucking
bank he lives in. I hope he croaks before I do, so we can
all raid his house and take all of that badass music that
he's not giving us. I also hope he and Chris make that
feature film, before his lazy ass goes into a coma.

Girl-Boy song and To Cure A Weakling Child r the best tunes
for real.


 

MC Phuqhead from Frankfurt/Germany on 2001-03-05 16:19 [#00000741]



I think the GAK album is a bit underrated. I'm sure he
didn't put his best in it, but although the structures of
the songs are very basic, it's a cool ep. To tell what his
"best" is, is very hard. I started with "Come To Daddy",
therefore I was really into his sick beats at this time.
When I started to go further I really loved "I Care..."
"Hangable 2" is also great, especially "Every Day". Does
this woman (I know, it's Richard, that's for sure) say: "Get
me another tie, get me another shirt, get me another
wooden"? That would be sick, dude...


 

manchu on 2001-03-05 18:06 [#00000742]



I must say, my favourite has to be:

...i care because you do.

For i do.


 

SWAI from Denmark on 2001-03-05 19:32 [#00000743]



"wollen"

some kind of shirt i reccon

good track


 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-03-05 20:34 [#00000745]



I myself have always wondered what the hell that little
girl's husband is telling her to get. It must be some
British lingo slang stuff. I'm not 100% sure that's him. I
mean if he records his mother, which he's done numerous
times, nothing would stop him from finding some little girl
and telling her "Talk into this."


 

MC Phuqhead from Frankfurt/Germany on 2001-03-06 09:42 [#00000749]



Yea, but the voice is almost similar to "Weakling Child", I
think. Right, that part with her "husband"... I don't get
any of these phrases. Aren't there any transcriptions of his
spoken word tracks?
Oh, another thing. Does anybody know if this awesome
"Windowlicker" hip hop remix (the mix at the beginning of
the music video, where those guys heavily "argue") is
available anywhere?


 

Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-03-06 10:49 [#00000751]



Oh, get me another tie,

Thanks phobiazero...!!!!!
You're my personal hero!!


 

soundmigration from Belfast, Ireland on 2001-03-06 13:21 [#00000760]



just wondering if you have any ideas on best aphex twin live
performance
just caught him and Disco Assault System at the Dedbeat
Weekender
played a seriously fucked up set

highlight was undoubtly mixing Whitney'winger'Huoston "i
wanna dance with somebody" with gloriousmashed up bleeps
scrapes and drones


 

ded zero from kenosha wi on 2001-03-07 03:53 [#00000781]



my personal favorite song has to be 'Arched maid via RDJ'.
that track first time around almost made me cry.


 

hevquip from mbanahanej on 2001-03-07 05:41 [#00000782]



i find myself favoring his older works like classics,
caustic window comp., and 51/13 singles collection. icbyd
was a well sculpted album and presented a new side to rdj's
music that i like. i really like pancake lizard,
polynomial-c,iz-us, and flim alot.


 

nano from malmö/sweden on 2001-03-07 15:42 [#00000788]



phobiazero, where did you find that lyrics page? searched
like a maniac around the links pages but couldn't find it.


 

Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-03-07 16:01 [#00000789]



search again


 

nano from malmö/sweden on 2001-03-07 18:07 [#00000790]



Sorry Fobiazero, but i cant find it, dont want to be rude or
anything but i must be blind.. =(


 

Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-03-07 18:12 [#00000791]



check out artists/aphex twin and click on 'IDM lyrics'


 

Dislodge from Canada on 2001-03-07 20:49 [#00000795]



WHOA!! Here's a thanks to ded zero, I just check out the
track "Arched Maid via RDJ" off of Napster on account of his
little posting ... and it was quite wickid' ... what AFX is
that from again?


 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-03-07 22:45 [#00000796]



"Arched Maid via RDJ" is off of the Hangable Auto Bulb a
EP's. As I was saying, they are a couple of his most awesome
and unavailable works. That song has so much gut-wrenching
emotion, it makes you wonder why everyone doesn't love him.
I, for one, love that fucking man. If I ever have a wife,
I'll buy his cum, so I can make little Richard D. James
babies.


 

matt butler from stockport england on 2001-03-07 23:49 [#00000798]



richard d james. An unsung hero in the music realm. i
discovered him purely by a single review in Q. i took the
chance of buying selected ambient works 1. what an album.
surely some of his more ambient work is among his best. i
have heard each track a million times yet never get bored .
an emotion captured by the essence of aphex twin is
indesrcibable. pure magic. try listening after five pints
with all lights off lying on your back. true genius.


 

vincent j. christfuck mcpants from australia or the moon on 2001-03-08 01:58 [#00000802]



well i dunno. i recon nothing beats kicking back, smokin
some cones and putting on the Richard D. James album.


 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-03-08 04:02 [#00000805]



For me, Selected Ambient Works Vol. II is my universal
music. I can clean house, fall asleep, wake up, eat, shit,
and dream to that album. An especially good use of it is
when I get out of a party, and I just don't want to hear any
more bumping, bassy, and obnoxious music. Basically, SAW II
complements just about any action I partake in. It makes me
wish we had huge speakers set all over town, flooding it
throughout. I guess I'll have to start writing my senator.
For me, nothing compares to that album. It's closer to
perfection than anything I have ever listened to, and
believe, I've tried, and I still try, to find something that
even equals it's magnificence, better yet surpasses it. I'm
sure many of you would beg to differ, but those of you who
agree undoubtedly feel strongly about it.
The Richard D. James album, on the other, is his most
concentrated album. If he had wanted to just make a normal
album out of that, it could have been two hours long, maybe
more. Those who feel that it is his best indeed have room
for arguement.

My favs are: Didgeridoo, Schottkey 7th path , song one on
analogue bubblebath 5, Stone in focus, Isoprophlex, and
finally aeigispolis


 

denzo from ninth plane of hell on 2001-03-15 00:13 [#00001038]



I have to say even though "come to daddy" is his first album
i had ever heard it is definitly his best. the overtones
mixed through-out the lyrics make my skin crawl and raise my
hackles while at the same time i want to hear those words
again and again. i will eat your soul, your body, your mind.
this is my favorite i love this shit!!!!


 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-03-15 08:13 [#00001048]



Some of my favorites are [rhubarb], Alberto Balsalm,
[curtains], Pancake Lizard, Flim, [cliffs], 4, [parallel
stripes], and X-Tal.


 

Tekn010G from Australia on 2001-03-15 22:02 [#00001061]

bert and ernie? are they really gay or just good frinds?


 

R.J. Jackson from Austin, Texas on 2001-03-16 04:10 [#00001078]



Bert and Ernie are gay. They are seperated, that's why
Ernie's always at home. I've hung out with Bert a few times.
He moved to Austin a couple of years ago. He's not my type ,
though. Grover, on the other hand........
