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.

From JulianR 10/03/2017 05:44
I know it's supposedly influential and all, but it seems quite uninspired to me. I really appreciate a lot of his later works, especially druqks, but this is just too darn repetitive. I think he was really able to build upon this with his other albums. But this one needs at least a little variety. I can't really find anything that grabs my attention. Even SAW II has something to it that gives a certain beauty and ambiance to it all; it seems like it builds and modifies upon the repetition. SAW I doesn't really do that for me at all. Sorry, bring on the downvotes I can handle them, it's just my opinion and it seems like its generally wrong by most other people's reckoning.

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.

Groundbreaking in its respective genre. Simply put, this record is up there with Brian Eno's best. I only wish more people would pay attention to just how gorgeous ambient music is (especially Aphex Twin's ambient music). Brilliant.

From Strangel 07/15/2016 03:31
For any electronic enthusiast, this album is like the template of how to captivate the listener without the explicit requirement that said listener also dance to the underlying beat. But this album doesn't lose the capacity to make you dance or move to it either. And it isn't just tuneless, experimental bleeps and bloops. It is, instead, an incredibly pleasant sonic listening experience made through basic uncluttered layerings of synth/sampling. And it hasn't lost any of its lustre in 24 years. Incredible!

One of the most relaxing compilation of sounds ever created. Truly a godsend.
