why are the intros and bios about aphex so imbecilic on here?

moroboshi from nyc on 2001-07-19 21:42 [#00016651]

Why are there so many dismissive comments about Selected
Ambient Works 2 on this site? and about RDJ's album?

They are easily the two best easily availible Aphex records
availible, and yet people are warned to stay away from SAW

Frankly SAW 85-92 is sounding really dated these days, it's
definitely good, but it screams 808 and what not.

It's SAW 2 that is really stunning, a fantastic work that i
have loved deeply for the past 6 years, and it's extremely
annoying to come to an Aphex Twin fan site and see his best
and supposedly most challenging work dismissed as too hard
to listen to, or worse yet as being a JOKE.

Who puts down SAWII? I defend it all the time its great. But
RDJ album is not one of his more imaginitive works. Oh and
808 State is good.

SAW 2 is one of my favourite albums.
bastards don't know what the fuck they're talking about

SAWII is praised by many on this site,.. I reckon that the
amount of people here who like it heavily outweigh the ones
that don't,.. stay around a couple of weeks more and you'll
know what I mean :)

I have been checking this board for about half a year and I
cant recall one time someone being negative towards SAWII.

SAW2 seems to be the peoples favorite around here
actually...Its definately mine...

Well, most of the people around here really enjoy SAW II -
and I took a quick look at the TOP RELEASES CHART and found it
on 6th place.

Not bad!

Yeah a lot of people visit this site and Don't post
regularly or at all on this wonderful messageboard. So.. the
votes represent a bit of a different side of things.
personally SAWII is higher up that 6th place. Personally.

I meant in the main bios posted on the site. you read the
"intro to aphex twin" materials on here and MULTIPLE TIMES
you'll find SAW 2 refered to as being possibly a joke.

what a crock.


Phobiazero from Sweden on 2001-07-20 22:15 [#00016894]

I see...

This is not the "general" opinion about SAW II. It was
written by a regular on this site.
