Released exactly 30 years ago:

Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92

A chap i knew at college bought it when it came out & raved and raved about this album, then he finally leant it to me. When I first heard that album after 5 seconds i just thought. How the hell does he make that sound?

Its the second most influential album on my music listening and writing. First being the double cassette my dad had of Jean Michael Jarre. Oxygene and Equinox when i was 9.

This a brilliant piece of electronic music. I discovered it roughly a few ago, and I've been listening to it daily since. Although none of the releases that feature this track are tagged with the 'Trance' label on Discogs, I would argue it is very much in the same vein and spirituality as some of the early Ambient Trance tunes, such as Mystic Force's Frontier, or Unreal's After Hours.
