Edit: i think its about time i wrote an actual review for this masterpiece.

Selected Ambient Works 85-92 is one of my favorite albums of all time. It is so deeply personal, yet so intensely danceable. This is a living, breathing piece of music, able to adapt and take the mood of any scenario. While the beats and style may not be "ambient" per se, the way it's crafted makes it the perfect backdrop music. And no, i dont mean that it's ignorable- it takes the forefront of any moment ... read more

Everywhere at the end of time-
A long and bleak album about dementia. Uses the ambient style to add to the illusion of time passing. Combines ballroom dance with rhythmic vinyl crackle, but slowly turns into something darker and terrifying. A near 7 hour behemoth that will leave you emotionally devastated for weeks, if not more. But still, the techniques this album uses are incredible and it is hard to deny The Caretaker's musical prowess.

This is some of the most impactful and immersive ... read more

Easily the most drone-heavy gybe album. It's less of a grand story about some massive political conflict, and more of an experiment with a more dense type of storytelling. This thing really hit me when I stopped trying to look for meaning in the tracks and just let the drones wash over me.

Its decently enjoyable. Sounds a lot like aphex twin. But there is one key difference that separates this from true acid classics- this is repetitive. The production really isnt doing the listener any favors, and it just drones on, but not in a good way.

One of the worst album covers I've ever seen.
Anyway, this album is really dense and complex but at a lot of moments it lacks any kind of melodical appeal. The one consistent thing about it is the drums and the rhythm. The whole time, I was definitely interested. Even in moments where I said out loud "this is pretty boring" i was still tapping my feet to the rhythm. There are some perfect moments where everything clicks, like Be Ur Fantasy. Definitely one of the best songs this year.

These songs all have extremely natural progression, but still come off as incredibly complex and nuanced. I can see any track here being someone's favorite. It's such a balanced project and a staple of electronic music in general.
