Aphex Twin – Flim [1997]

Found trailing “Come To Daddy” on the 12″ of the same name, Flim couldnt be any more different than the title track. A four minute glide through electronic bliss. The break is light and serves solely to drive the track along, the star here is the main riff that runs through the track. A melancholy and uplifting track, teasing both of those emotions simultaneously, something that Richard James does perfectly. Knock the lights off, close your eyes and listen.

From Discogs
This is a very good release for vinyl, and I’m not talking about the sound quality.
The tracks are already mind blowing to start with, but slowing the record down from 45RPM to 33 makes Bucephalus Bouncing Ball sound like an acid house legend. Also, there’s the addition of the huge 12″ shot from Chris Cunningham’s video for the single. Freaky.
Even if you’ve already got the CD, you need the vinyl. It’s so much more fun.
