Some say that opposites attract. When it comes to the music of Richard D. James, more commonly known as Aphex Twin but in this release under the moniker of AFX, this is certainly true. This was forced upon the listener in his previous release, Drukqs, as jarring, skittering beats met lush piano melodies. In Chosen Lords however, this curious mixture is much smoother and easier on the listener, suitable even for a dance floor (however, not your typical one). The melodies throughout the album become enmeshed in your memory long after the 56 minutes of the best of Aphex Twin’s Analord series is over. The song writing skills James has developed throughout his distinguished career are clearly evident, maintaining a level of energy for the duration of the album that could match the house or breakbeat music of any club.
After releasing the album Drukqs in 2001, James went into a period of inactivity as Aphex Twin but continued to issue new music under other aliases, including the 2005 Analord EP series as AFX and a pair of 2007 releases as The Tuss, as well as archival material such as an unreleased 1994 LP in 2014 as Caustic Window. James returned as Aphex Twin in 2014 with the album Syro, which won a Grammy Award for Best Dance/Electronic Album. 1 Early life and education. 1989–1992: Rephlex Records and first releases. 1992–1995: Selected Ambient Works, I Care Because You Do and gaining success. 1996–2000: Richard D.

April 7 2006, 1:00am, The Times. Aphex Twin zealots will have gorged already on every squelch and bleep of this compilation, given that its ten tracks were issued as a series of singles last year. Others will be pleasantly surprised by Richard James’s first album since the impenetrable Drukqs from 2001. Gone are the drill ‘n’ bass cacophonies; in their place a stream of darkly glittering retro electronica.
