Aphex Twin: I Care Because You Do LP
|Availability:||Out of stock|
Aphex Twin's third studio album, originally released in 1995, is regarded as Richard D. James' greatest work under the moniker; whereas Selected Ambient Works Vol. II consummated his analogue era, ...I Care Because You Do was the beginning of more intricate, lengthy, abstract digital compositions. Quite different to the previous, familiar sound of ambient music and techno. Anagrams for tracks titles ("The Waxen Pith," "Wet Tip Hen Ax," "Next Heap With"); in-jokes and innuendos; samples of dialogue from pornographic films and other eccentric production nuances fold into distorted hip-hop style beats and tangled drum loops. ...I Care Because You Do captures a new era of bracing sonic experimentation (a self portrait on the cover appears to endorse this change), yet maintaining levels of familiar melancholy and aggression in an equal measure. 2LP-set with paper inner, top-loader LP outer and download.
