Single Status Update
I want it. I want it so badly I could cry. I can feel the tears welling up in my eyes. It's got Stone In Focus, which is only on this release. The song is bone-chilling and beautiful. There is no way that is should ever be on CD. the song was taylor-made for vinyl.
Also, don't judge Richard D. James if the only song you've heard is Come To Daddy. (this means you, Liam)
Also, listrening to Mellon Collie And the Infinite Sadness with the vinyl tracklisting is odd. There's no other word for it. The storyline makes more sense.

Those bands arent really industrial. They have industrial roots, but I dont think I'd classify them as industrial. They're more like experimental electronic.

Music newbies.... that's an awful concept. Knowledge is not a requirement to appreciate any kind of art. If someone really loves music, then what the fuck does it matter?
you're right of course, but i assure you dan's intentions were not elitist/derogatory (maybe a little heh), its the wording that was poor; replace 'newbies' with 'people who aren't total music nerds', people who aren't aware of the difference between bullshitted minority genres like IDM and the archaic form of industrial.
thanks to this thread i will be downloading, and listening to some aphex twin in the near future.
Aphex Twin is not IDM or Industrial. Richard D. James would never conform to primotive musical 'genres'. his style changes every album.
I list the kind of music each album is here, but specifing it into genres is realy a dumb idea with AFX because he's immitating each style in his own way.
SAW = ambient pop
SAW2 = moody ambient
I Care Because You Care = drill & bass
RDJ Album = IDM/D&B
Come To Daddy = Industrial
Windowlicker = hip-hop/techno
Drukqs = IDM/Snare rush/prepared piano
