Starts off very good, then slowly goes onward to random electronic noise making almost half of it impossible to listen to. The sounds are quite outdated even for the time of release, this is not ambient (except "i" maybe) and since it's "selected works", not even an album technically speaking. I'm having a hard time trying to understand why this have so much consideration.

There is plenty of legend surrounding this album, and I'm not about to trot out the usual cliches here, but this album stands out as an electronic tour de force, with its soft beats, burbling basslines and washes of colour. It is a record which improves listen upon listen too, so no matter how much you enjoy it at first, by the time you've had it a few years, you'll appreciate it even more. Best tracks: Xtal, Ageispolis, Heliosphan, Ptolemy

First electronic album I properly got into. It took me out of my one-dimensional music habits and I would highly recommend to any music fans, not just of this genre.

There were some great moments. I get why people regard it highly, but ultimately not the soundtrack of my life.

To start off with your career with a retrospective album title is so damn cool. Aphex Twin is all like: "So this is some of the selected music I have been making since I was 13-14 years old to now. Here you go, enjoy."

It has so much feel in it. It's like a love story from the future's past.

Almost at the 25th anniversary of this record and this record still feels futuristic.
