New US Edition for 2001, with 2 bonus tracks. "Perhaps the most concise of his early releases, Surfing... sounds as refreshing today as it did almost a decade ago. James' gift for moody atmospherics is on prominent display in both complex melody lines and flowing abstract patterns. The entire procession is driven by pulsating rhythms that vacillate between delicate blips to blistering workouts... a timeless classic. This midline re-issue is the first of what will be many North American re-issues from the Warp canon. As an added attraction, two previously unreleased tracks make their debut on the 2001 edition, 'Portreath Harbour' and 'Redruth School.'" "If the first Artificial Intelligence comp on Warp is the bible for the IDM generation, this record is surely the King James (NPI) version, responsible or a mass upheaval of 'guitar-rock-angst' in favor of general togetherness (and pseudo scientific track-monikerism). Mr Richard James (Aphex Twin/AFX/etc...), directly after inventing the Warp sound, furthers it on this, his first full-length album, by shunning the four-on-the-floor amalgam of past summer-of-love successes/excesses and exploring advanced (at least for '92) sonics and textures. An out and out classic, which if you haven't heard yet might give you some insight to recent head-scratcher trends in 'lectronica." --Hrvatski
