Aphex Twin
Selected Ambient Works volume 2
[Sire/Warp]


If there is one ambient album that you need to have, it's this one. In fact, this double CD is possibly the most essential, contemporary ambient work. Aphex Twin (aka Richard D. James) created totally alien and hypnotic soundscapes. Long, airy, repetitious sounds stretch for miles and miles, totally entrancing a listener and altering his sense of reality. Moreover, with a fair amount of drugs or even alcohol, it could truly take you where no man has gone before. Afterwards, Richard D. James effectively kept exploring various other territories in the electronic realm, but none of his other works is as enchanting as this.
