Well, for me Endtroducing >>>>>>> Mezzanine, but I'm probably in the minority on that one.


i actually think most people would agree....

And I've never given Aphex Twin a proper listen, so I'll do that for sure. This album is seriously so visual for me though, I just doubt another album can produce such vivid visuals for me. Idk if that makes sense but its the way I feel.

This doesn't sound anything like Mezzanine really. But yeah, I get the sense that people talk about Mezzanine a lot more, but Endtroducing is probably the more well-respected album overall. Mezzanine isn't life-changing though imo, while Endtroducing def has some power to it.

In that interview I posted a couple pages back he mentions Aphex and drum n bass as stuff that got him into the genre, which makes complete sense because his music is just like a crazier, faster Aphex with some hip hop thrown in.

This is pretty fucking crazy dude, idk... Maybe you're listening to this record, but I'm hearing it. Or maybe I'm just naive about this kind of music (which I am), but seriously this album speaks to me.

And yeah, Proph, that interview was pretty great, and led to my eventual 5'ing of this in a way. I just can't stop listening to this, and its fucking perrrrrfect.

No this is definitely insane. I'm just saying that AFX did insanity long ago.

this certainly isnt crazier nor faster than most aphex twin

i mean aphex has such a huge range that it's hard to say but if we're talking stuff like 'come to daddy' then nahhhhhhh

drukqs iirc also is definitely not the best way to start

But this sounds so organic it's almost not even fair. Endtroducing has that very organic feel too, but this is spacey as all hell at the same time. I'm convinced this is the best thing ever, but I'm willing to be persuaded.

Drukqs and the two ambient works are without a doubt my favorite AFX records.

Drukqs has a really technical craziness sound to it that comes close to crossing any sense of musical appreciation for it, but within all the madness has some sort of chilling beauty(exemplified by the piano pieces).

But back to Flying Lotus, this record almost flows like some alien dj mix.

We've eaten two servings of cannabis-infused goldfish crackers. And we've been talking about the future.


I love that.

This album almost sounds like a time-clash with the mixture of the futuristic synthesizers and clatters of noise, but with traditional instruments such as sax and harp mixed in. And the way it flows is comparable to an electronic record a la Aphex Twin.
