Some of his best work yet! All five tracks are great and this is now my favorite Aphex Twin EP. Each track fits with the others and each one is a masterpiece, unlike his last EP, Cheetah which for some reason had two tracks that were short sound samples. And unlike the mellow groove of Cheetah, Collapse has a dangerous groove that is both cohesive and chaotic, beautiful and disruptive at the same time and takes things to a maddening level that Richard D James is well known for. Or in other words, it’s pure cray-cray…

Love it Aphex Twin has a habit of releasing EPs that sound both like they’re totally new, and you’d swear he released it a decade ago because it’s so clearly part of his unique style. Some find this divisive as though Aphex’s sound hasn’t grown. I can’t agree with that, his sound is constantly evolving even across a single track. But if you expected a wild departure, this isn’t it. It’s also definitely more of a dance album, so if you’re looking for another “Selected Ambient Works…” this isn’t that…
