AFX - Smojphace EP (2003)

The track rips that's all there is to it. For all you out there who are against AFX creating noise, the two noise tracks are great. I bet he has millions of tracks like run the place red and side b on his hard disks. This is also why he doesn't bother releasing much. If he did all the producers would sound like AFX for awhile. I think it's quite interesting how many people dismiss the latter two tracks on this disc. Aphex Twin's music is hardly restricted to dance idioms ~ SAW2 and Drukqs have demonstrated that all too clearly ~ & this is yet another example. To write off these tracks as "mere noise" is to fail utterly to appreciate a very different kind of music. It isn't data; it's music. Try to hear it...
