I've been listening to a lot of selected ambient works recently. But I agree with theramshank Richard D. James is the best to start with.

Has anyone got Hangable Auto Bulb yet? Or did anyone get them the first time round?

The analord series sucked, I would love to see/hear RDJ do something decent soon. He's so concerned about the market and how "the biz is fake"...just release your good music man...make the world a better place.

Mmmmm good stuff. I'm pretty sure I have Come to Daddy. I really have to be in the mood to listen to them though.

Selected Ambient Works is the chillest
Richard D James is more drum n bass influenced
I care Becasue You Do is sort of a mesh of different styles but it's pretty cohesive
Come To Daddy Ep has a few of his best and most recognized songs on it

Those are probably my favorite albums of is

I actually love Aphex Twin. Rich is THE man.

Outside a show someone came up to me and said 'you look like a young Richard D. James', I was like...dat coo'

The "CHosen Lords," album is really good.

Probably one of his best releases as of late.

I never heard all of the analord series so I don't know if these were the best songs from it, but either way they seem to have been good picks

This is the fucking guy who with his first big check from royalties, BUYS A TANK and sets it on his property, the man who carves his own face into Windowlicker, and has brilliant song titles like "Flaphead" and "Cow Cud is a Twin."

He's the fucking Zeppelin of electronic.

i saw this and had to note that afx has said that he uses zeppelin breaks as inspiration for his own beats, which would literally make him the zeppelin of electronic...

there's one in particular on analord 8, W32.Deadcode.A, that comes to mind

this is funny, i was just about to put an aphex thread and then i saw this one. aphex is great, hes a huge influence on my style of writting (oddly enough i play guitar). for some reason a song that i just cant get enough of is Stone in Focus, its the greatest song to play while in reflection.

just to add, its also great to hear his shit in salad fingers series. for anyone out there who doesnt know salad fingers. go on newgrounds and look it up. great stuff

i really like richard d. james album. drukqs is also good because it shows off his john cage influence, what with the prepared piano and all.
i'm still meaning to get come to daddy.

hell yeah. the way it matches with the music is awesome



also, druqks has a lot more erik satie in it than cage. all the slow piano pieces iscattered on the album are very much attempts to compose using his melodic style, something RDJ himself has talked about

and whoever said analord sucked is crazy. there are so many awesome tracks on there, and the way he plans the tracks out and develops them is amazing. a lot of these tracks are exercises in structure. the latter EPs are solid gold, everything after 7 blows my mind. tracks like lisbon acid, pwsteal, and mydoom are just high marks in his career for me. not to mention both tracks on analord 10 are among the best he's ever done. who can not go crazy when fenixfunk breaks it the fuck down near the end? the HIGHLY distorted vocoder screaming A....NA....LOOOORD...

wild shit
