In 2013 it was Boards of Canada, this year it's Aphex. Maybe it's the fact that I've been so starved of RDJ's music for a while (apart from The Tuss I guess), but this was a grand batch of tracks to return with, and a sign that there's a shitload of new music to come.

Best track: produk 29 [101].

Was generally surprised by how much I disliked this album when I first listened to it, but now I'm even more suprised by how much I love it after having listened to it repeatedly since 2014. Compared to all of James' other releases (and as quoted from the man himself) it really is Aphex Twin's "pop record". If you listen to Drukqs and Syro back-to-back then you'll *definitely* hear a gargantuan difference between the two.
Not that the accessibility of James' music grants it anymore artistic weight, but it does give you a pretty decent insight into the mind of an extremely versitile artist. Perhaps, versitility is something he isn't given enough credit for but really should be. Great record.

From Strangel
This fantastic album is like a maths lesson for your subconscious, delivered by a digital lecturer with a good sense of rhythm and abstract time signatures. It is a piece of electronic art that is only held back by its tendency to jolt you too far out of your comfort zone at times requiring you to take the occasional breather.

Syro is an excellent return for Aphex Twin, who had not released a full length album in over a decade. It is one of his best works overall, with only Selected Ambient Works 85-92 being clearly better. The tracks work equally well for dancing and for listening, and is one of the better electronic albums of the decade, and just misses being one of top 100 albums of all time.

If it wasn't for this album I would never have checked out Autechre and found out about IDM. Love it, first 6 tracks especially. 7+8 worst tracks.

I dig this album hard. Concluding with the spare piano postlude is pure genius. I considered this his best work until I discovered the Select Ambient Works volume. There was nothing like that album when it came out. There probably still isn't -- except for this one.

Probably not the best Aphex Twin albums. But one of my favorites.

I really believe Richard D. James put together one of the best works of career in this one. I don't know if I've even heard an album so masterfully crafted.
