RDJ album or I care because...

catalan boy from barcelona on 2001-07-15 18:11 [#00015234]

What do you preffer?

I think both are completely perfect, and everytime i listen
to them i can discover new and amazing sounds and
Are simply two incredible albums for different moments.
or am i wrong?


rob fragilenine from everywhere on 2001-07-15 18:23 [#00015238]

definitely ICBYD, it seems more 'complete' than the RDJ
album... it's just the rdj album sounds a bit hollow in my
opinion... IN MY OPINION... don't yell at me please i'm not
in the mood for arguing...

I care because you do - definitly.

Its just far better, its more of a whole, as the person
before said, and it says more about his style, and talent.
In my opinion, id say ICBYD anyday.


Aron? from Canada on 2001-07-15 21:58 [#00015263]

I like RDJ Album more. I don't know why, it's just that the
songs on ICBYD never really impressed me.


thanksomuch from some where on 2001-07-15 23:06 [#00015283]

I care because you do... but that is because it was one of
the first albums i had heard..

"Start as you mean to go on" always stirs up a strange
nostalgic feeling in me. Can't explain it.


Scary Bear on 2001-07-16 00:13 [#00015296]

I always listen to RDJ Album less because it is so damn
short. I want to chill out in my room and listen to stuff
and I have barely started my bok when the damn thing has
come to and end. I am listening to it now though and have
realised how much I have neglected it. It is truly amazing,
the first track of this album and ICBYD have pretty much the
same effect on me even though they sound quite different.


Paul on 2001-07-16 00:20 [#00015298]

while i prefer the analogue phase of his career, i have to
say that RDJ album is, after SAW1, my favorite. i love
ICBYD to death, but RDJ album is shorter and often sweeter,
despite all the manic rhythms. but a tough question
nevertheless - mookid and alberto balsalm on ICBYD are
lovely in ways unimaginable by any other electronic music


|REFLEX| from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 2001-07-16 02:22 [#00015311]

Ken Shabby: Yes, that song as well brings up those kinds of
feelings.. weird.


Xanatos from NYC on 2001-07-19 20:46 [#00016640]

gotta go with ICBYD...its what got me into RDJ

Richard cares because I do, but even if he didn't care, I'd
still care...

Well, prolly not, I guess...

I dunno, I don't care


evolume from seattle, washington, usa on 2001-07-19 21:24 [#00016650]

after hearing at the heart of it all on the NIN ep, it was
the first aphex twin i bought. his work with vocoders on
that album is fucking unreal.
also, it is quite minimal but still full of depth.
RDJ is fucking chow yun PHAT though.


catboy-melack from bcn on 2001-07-19 21:55 [#00016653]

its curious, but i care was also my first afx album...


The Grey Gentleman from Eugene, Oregon on 2001-07-20 02:22 [#00016682]

ICBYD was my first RDJ album as well. I actually bought it
when it first came out and thought it was complete shit.
Just utterly shitty.

And for some reason about a year later, I decided to listen
to it again, and for some reason I just really really liked
it a whole lot. I reckon its still my favorite RDJ album,
that or SAWII, although SAWII can annoy me quite a bit
sometimes, even so it's still right top.


João Evangelista from Portugal on 2001-07-20 04:14 [#00016692]

ICBYD is definitely the best album around. All the tracks on
it are really great.


Tek from Australia on 2001-07-20 06:32 [#00016700]

ICBYD is by far the better in my opinion,... it takes itself
far more seriously than RDJ album,... which I like


m....MwMw wwW(m M m)Www wMwM....m on 2001-07-20 07:33 [#00016711]

RDJ album is superior in my opinion. The first 5 or 6 songs
anyway. The song 4 fills my veins with energy. The song
after that (cornish acid?) is composed in some alien manner
of thinking. It's like he tapped into the innermost fractals
of his mind when he made that rhythm. The 4th song
(fingerbib?) is made with a sweet little beat based on a
rhythm of 5 units not the usual 4. It sounds like bees.
There are some great songs in ICBYD too. If you've played
tetris for N64, it has similar music.


|REFLEX| from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 2001-07-20 07:34 [#00016712]

Both are great, but I think that ICBYD if more of a complete

It can't be said which album is better because they each
have a completely different sound. Each one is excellent to
its own accord.


Tek from Australia on 2001-07-20 10:19 [#00016751]

RDJ album is pretty weak near the end,.. that's why I like
ICNYD better,.


|REFLEX| from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on 2001-07-20 10:45 [#00016756]

Yes IMO, ICBYD stays strong right through, more of a
complete package like I said, it has more variety as for
song structure, and keeps me interested longer.


melack-catboy from bcn on 2001-07-21 17:04 [#00016976]

ICBYD wins!


st.ranger on 2001-07-21 17:18 [#00016978]

RDJ is my fave, I think maybe people prefer ICBYD because
it's longer and has different styles on it, but RDJ for me
is just about perfect for me except the last track


chicken paste man!! on 2001-07-21 17:33 [#00016981]



WW's Sketcher from Ottawa, Canada (but i'm in Montreal now..) on 2001-07-21 19:46 [#00016994]

Since i get to have both the Girl/Boy EP on my version of
RDJ album, i'll pick that one. But there both very good.

RDJ has a better amount of songs, but ICBYD has a more
fufilling list. Both good buys...SAW is the best of them all
