Aphex Twin classic or Dud?

I don't think he is. I make some kind of music just like the warp acts.. and I can tell you this: boards of canada and esp. Autechre are better. he just no as classic as everybody thinks.

More style killing substance the way a small boy will kill ants with a magnifying glass in the noonday sun. He is attractive to some because of his videos, which is a nice way of saying he gets good directors to do his shit.

If you judge Richard James on his videos I think you've really missed the point. Techno pioneer, innovator and creator of some of the finest electronic music of the last 10+ years. (IMHO Autechre, who claim James is their major inspiration, churn out dull, dessicated and tiresomely ornate sounds by comparison).

Stevo, Friday, 12 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

The videos are really good, though. Though possibly that should be in "Chris Cunningham: Classic Or Dud"

Tom, Friday, 12 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I've never seen his videos (though I wanna) and I think he's classic. It's always a good idea to challenge the conventional wisdom, but in this case it's right: Aphex has made tons of beautiful tracks (though most of his albums are uneven) and has been hugely influential. Boards of Canada is unthinkable without the style established by James, as I'm sure Sandison and Es would tell you!

Mark Richardson, Saturday, 13 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

I know hid made some very good tracks. and maybe he has influenced some people. but.. if you listen to his albums most of the songs are just crap. his videos rules and the songs made the videos for also. but I think this guy is just too lazy to make one good album.


Ludo, Sunday, 14 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Does he have to make a good album, to be considered classic? (By the way: Selected Ambient Works Vol. II., The Richard D. James Album.)

Josh, Sunday, 14 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

does he has to make a good album to be a classic.


the ambient works are cool but, not that cool to become a classic. he should make an album full of super songs like windowlicker to become a classic. or songs like flim.


Ludo, Sunday, 14 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Classic. He made me realize how great electronic music can be. Just like Joy division, MBV and Fushitsusha made me realize how good 'rock' can be. He's made great records and he's not a one trick pony (RD James to selected ambient II).

The one problem is that a lot of people just buys his records and don't dig a for more records by other groups like autechre, Susumu Yokota and so on. For me he was definetely the beginning but not the end.

The only Aphex Twin that I liked was "I care because you do". That had soul. The rest are just experimentation for experimentation's sake.

I mostly listen to psytrance/Goa, intelligent techno, jungle & ambient. IDM in general doesn't do it for me, it lacks emotion (at least positive ones).

Classic. No contest.

The first track on "Selected Ambient Works 85-92" is, on a good day, the end result of the dialectic of all culture.

So, classic, yeah.

Tim, Monday, 15 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Classic. Just on the basis of the Richard D James album, the bloke's a genius. Add to that Surfing On Sine Waves, Windowlicker, Girl/Boy and most of the Selected Ambient Works and the guy's at least a demigod. BoC and Autechre have both done fine stuff but they aren't even fit to step through the door of Mr Twin's bank.

Richard Tunnicliffe, Monday, 15 January 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Oh, without a doubt classic. He was shitting out stuff in the early nineties which defined the genre by breaking it so often. Edgy, fractious, occasionally twee Ver Twin was where it was at.

You don't need to make a good album to be a classic (I'm not even sure you have to make a good single to be a classic) but Ritchie has certainly made some good albums. And what's this guff about Selected Ambient Works not being a proper album. Glen Campbell's 20 Golden Greats is a proper album, just because its a compilation does not weaken its claim.

Of course that make The Best Of Blur pretty much their best album...

Aphex is by far the most versatile, creative and most advanced artist in ALL of Dance/electronic culture, that means every genre thats made with samplers and electronics. IDM is easy to make now , but you wouldnt have said this 6 or 7 years ago. I laugh when people assume theyre just as good as someone like an Aphex, 10 out of 10 times theyll play what theyve done with it and its nothing even close to the genius of Aphex. Now ofcourse everyone has their own opnion about this, but this is mine and generally ya can ask most djs or artists and they'll usually admit that Aphex is in a league almost no one can touch. Everyone from Bowie to Reznor to Bjork and countless dance artists will reckon that fact. I like both Boards of Canada and Autechre, and I as nice as for example BOX is, they dont even come in the total BATTING RANGE of what Aphex has done over the past 11 -12 years or so. Music Has the Right to Children is good , but IMO nothing groundbreaking and the last 4 tune EP "Out in a Beautiful place in The Country" nothing to write home about IMO. Autechre has done some amazing stuff as well, but they sound rather repetitious at times, neither BOC or Autechre have the emotion ridden classics as AFX's "Heliospan", "Girl/boy", "Alberto Balsam", "Peek","Flim", "UZ-US" for example. Personally I think that Plaid/Black Dog kick both Ae and BOC's butts in terms of emotion and the likes in their music. I would like Mr Ludo come up with a Girl/Boy track for example, if yer so good, then put yer samples online bro.. Aphex is still King of all......

Definitely classic - though his cohorts Autechre and Boards of canada are good too.

I'm good too

charlie frame, Wednesday, 14 March 2001 01:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Strange enough I find Autechre to be the most emotional of the IDM (aaarghh I've said okay, I.D.M.) artists. They have a fairly unique way of going for childlike melancholy without using the sounds of the 70s itself a la Boards of Canada (love em too). It's more like the sound nostalgia makes. It's a bit hard to explain but you hear it best on the 1st album and "Amber". Unlike much of Mr. James later output, for instance that irritating fartknocking "jungle" on "Richard James" album. Which is a pity because he had that emotional touch up to "I Care...".

Aphex Twin deserves more credit than he's given. For me, it's the sound of 'england dreaming', a contemporary embodiment of our eccentricity, more evocative of the Britain I experienced in the 90's than the indie commentary (Divine Comedy/ Babybird). Listen to 'Cornish Acid' on Richard. D James for the quintessential 'english' whimsy- seaside towns, Martin Parr, provincial backwaters. (A suggestion for an artist who's speaking more directly, i.e. vocals, samples, try Martin - Male Caucasian, but unfortunately this'll date like a Blue Peter annual.) Folk music for the digital pastures that've been uncovered in the past decade, he's as vague and indistinct as the new avenues we find ourselves on.

Despite the rictus grin there's is a genuine warmth and humour to his music, though I'll admit that, like many Warp artists, the emotional communication is indirect, showing us how to feel, as opposed to telling us what to feel. But that's fine, it's not as if they're even trying to tell us a story. Concequently this kind of music has a greater resonance with me. But then what what distinguishes him from his contempories? Well, he's survived every micro-genre he invented, reacted to and re- developed his own back catalogue - he replied to ambient with Ambient Vol 2, Drill n Bass with the classical hybrids of Richard D. James, then stirred the already stagnant electronica scene with Windowlicker, which I'm sure could hold it's own in any ILM pop league. Still a genius, even with his head firmly up his own arse.

Did you know AFX has been corresponding with Beck for months about producing the Beck's album. It fell apart cause neither were prepared to record outside their own studio. I dunno, but that would have been fun.

K-reg, Tuesday, 8 May 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

i agree. be sure to not refer to beck as 'the beck' on your top forty list though.

ethan, Tuesday, 8 May 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

basically, just agreeing with everything k-reg said. i like the martin parr comparison in particular. always been taken with the ruralism in aphex. richard.d.james album always seems like a cousin of nick drake's bryter layter.

but i'm glad the aphex/beck thing didn't happen. even aphex couldn't make beck good.

oh, and to answer the question, classic, obviously

gareth, Tuesday, 8 May 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Just wait until Robin gets ahold of that "provincial backwaters" thing that K-Reg said.

Patrick, Tuesday, 8 May 2001 00:00 (seventeen years ago) Permalink

Yeah? So? I've met K-reg and I could tell instantly he meant it in good spirit. It's the sarcastic mockery of certain other contributors that I can't take. I'm quite happy being in a geographical backwater as long as I'm not in a cultural one.

The Parr comparison applies for sure, but not as explicitly as it does with BoC's "Concourse" and "M9" (but then how could it?).

Aphex is classic, of course. I actually used to see him as a model for making a virtue of geographical isolation as a means of artistically refining yourself, so it's appropriate that K-reg said that. I think "Richard D. James Album" is his best work, as well, whereas FWIW I think "Bryter Layter" is Drake's weakest.

Fair enough, Autechre and Plaid are more focused in their visions and make arguably better music, but they would be nothing, absolutely nothing without Aphex. Aphex is a starting point, if you like his complexity, then get into Autechre; is maniacal evilness, listen to Boards of Canada; for his melodic brilliance, Plaid are highly recommended. But it is always worth listening to and revering RDJ as the pioneering force behind this music.

This is interesting because I have been obsessed with "electronic" music since I was about 10 years old but then I stopped listening to it for years. I thought I'd get back into it by seeking out the guy everyone was talking about, The Aphex Twin. So a few years back I bought "Selected Ambient Works 85-92" - listened to it a few times and thought, "blah". I found it totally bland and uninteresting and it wasn't doing anything I hadn't heard hundred times before. But I am willing to give the guy another go because I think he must have talent for people to be so fanatical about him.

neither classic nor dud - just hugely overrated.

I think the general feeling on Aphex Twin is surely that he makes far better videos than records.

Most of his stuff is doodly nonsense..... some unlistenable, some rather good. Much of it sounds like he's making it up as he goes along.

classic. for the ambient records especially. the more drum'n'bass-y ones don't do it for me quite as much, but then i'm not really into drum'n'bass. i feel like i'm on rocky territory if i start calling him a genius, as i'd feel i have to give reasons other than the beauty of the music. and that's all that matters, really.

Chosen Lords/Rushup Edge/Ophaned Deejay Selek/Syro/Cheetax EP is a pretty remarkable run - clouds is right, but to some extent it's coming at the expense of his unparalleled oddness - he's not quite as fun to talk about anymore. Reminds me a bit of what's going on with Autechre, the old stuff is classic but I find myself reaching for the new stuff much more often. Even if for no other reason than it sounds fantastic.

yeah, it all sounds amazing.

map, Monday, 29 August 2016 15:14 (one year ago) Permalink

Aphex and Ae's progressions have felt very different to me. Autechre seem to have always been striving for the type of sound they've achieved in the last decade from the very start, and now that they've really nailed down their process, they're having fun and experimenting with composition and timbre in really rewarding ways.

Conversely, RDJ seems to have kind of locked in to this particular sound and mode of composition ever since Analord that is starting to get a bit stale to my ears, though a few tracks on some of his recent EPs have been interesting, they still exhibit a lot of the "sameness" of the rest of his 21st century output. I miss his playfulness, that trollish desire to take the piss in tracks in some creatively brilliant ways, that edge, and it feels like he's now simply making very satisfyingly cromulent electronic music.

octobeard, Monday, 29 August 2016 16:34 (one year ago) Permalink

yeah, i dunno. there's blatant goofiness to "CIRCLONT14" (shrymoming mix), with the shifting hi-hat patterns and instances where the beat is so straightforward, they're augmented/emphasized as if he's saying "look at how dumb this is", and the gnarled, 20-step bass breakdown midway through the track - it's like an elaborate piss take. papat4 is just joyous.. the slick, rubbery bass lines are so effortlessly pert and buoyant-sounding, and those stuttered snare and tambourine bits -- it's so malleable and fluid-sounding. and then there's "s950tx16wasr10" (earth portal mix), which is possibly the 'deepest', most fleshed-out and varied track on the album, sort of a late grower. the first couple tracks of the album do feel refined, but Syro is all over the place, and it's undeniably playful. the Tuss eps really are the cream of the crop, imo. it does seem like he's zeroed in on a rich (but not super-varied?) sound palette. whatever mode he might be locked into, it's pleasurable enough. the way you described Ae in the first part of your post could to apply to RDJ over the last decade, though he's not fucking around with structure and composition in such extreme ways (like Ae).. i wouldn't say that he's solidified yet.

There's a really cool website here: http://user18081971.watmm.com/

that lets you vote on the various soundcloud tracks and then see what tracks have gotten the most votes. It's actually really helpful for sorting through the soundcloud tracks and I've found quite a few that are great. There's also a complete rip of the soundcloud tracks on watmm's aphex twin forum. Or I think you can find a torrent somewhere also.

I wasn't very excited about the SC tracks at first but now that I've heard some of the top voted ones, I think that there's some album quality stuff in there. The Cheetah track itself I think was chosen for release because of how many votes it got on that site, lol.
