Aphex Twin, drukqs

2 CDs, Warp

One of the wonders of the modern world is that people can make art music
and make good livings outside academia. Not all the world but certainly
London, England.

And drukqs certainly is art music - textures that sweep and change. Rythmns
that come and go and thoughtful changes of dynamics. Just how engaging
you'll find it will depend on what you bring to the table. Richard James
hasn't helped us much as the materials surrounding the release are mostly
fairly (completely! see the interview here somewhere off the BeatZ page) 
tongue in cheek. It's not as inaccessible as that sounds though. There are
some pretty melodies and the general make-up of the thing doesn't require
too much pre-education. This is especially true of the second disk.
