Aphex Twin-Cheetah

The latest from Aphex Twin is titled Cheetah. The music was inspired and made on the annoyingly complicated Cheetah MS800. When the Cheetah was introduced no one bought it and even today with retro synths back in style it’s been deemed worthless. That hasn’t stopped Richard D. James from taking a crack at it. The music has more of an IDM vibe similar to Boards of Canada and is not as jarring and frenetic as some of his other works. Overall I liked this because it was so much smoother than his other albums and you didn’t feel like you were having your teeth drilled out while listening to it.
