Quote from NME:"Aphex Twin is a fantastical example of self hype"-Neil Tennant
I think this is a matter of acquired taste, it might grow on you after a
few listen. I didn't catch the drift after hearing it twice, it sounds a
bit awkward, but i wouldn't say i hate it. Maybe RJ had a really awkward
lucid dream...'bout teapot, and what you think/feel about this track is
actually in sync with RJ's--a pile of garbage sounds.
