I thought that this was an interesting opinion, worthy of being passed 
along. Apologies to those who are getting it for a second time..

Subject: new aphex thing

i too agree with sean (cooper) in that i'm surprised so many people like 
the new aphex album. i mean.. hopefully without getting a bullet in my 
head here... i think the album (except for the the first track) is a joke.

if i heard that as a demo tape it would be laughed at.. i just think 
becuase it has HIS name on it.. people think it's so great.. and so 
INNOVATIVE..(???)


i dunno.. i'm a bigbig fan of polygon window.. and SAW 1.. and some of 
the bubblebath stuff.. so this new stuff with horrendous chord 
progresssions and child-like tinkerings in a muddy stew just seems like a 
step backwards..

imho.

does anyone else share this opinion? or.. WHY do you consider this album 
to be GOOD.. maybe i'm just missing the point.
