We speak Shpongolese hereJust so we're clear, it's not up for debate whether this is brilliant. We are only discussing how brilliant it is.
My view? Aphex Twin brilliant. That good. The production is just seamless and the depth and complexity of the musical ideas second to none. This is the pinnacle of electronica, as good as it gets or is going to get. Best album of the year, and the distance between it and second best is enormous. If you love music, you love this, end of discussion.
