Aphex Twin's Drukqs: A Breif Review

This sprawling, schizophrenic album careens between Satie inspired piano solos and James' typically frenetic programming. Some of the songs on this album will reach inside of your head and pull your brains out. The sequencing on this thing does seem a bit random, with drum n' bass excursions following pure musique concrete following gamelan music box pieces, but that it is part of its charm. While some might say this album is a retread of passed glories, in my opinion it plays to all of James' strengths; nary a sound is misplaced. 

"Avril 14th," "Jynwythek Ylow," "Mt Saint Michel Mix + St. Michaels Mount," and "Vordhosbn" are good places to start.
