** The fact that the album came out after 13 years and has been seen as Richard's best work yet, proving that he hasn't [[SeasonalRot gone down in quality]]; in fact, quite the opposite.

* "Windowlicker" may be one of Aphex Twin's crowning moments of awesome and a moment establishing him as a legend of electronic music. Every part of that song is engineered to perfection, its being [[EarWorm commercial-sounding]] yet still retaining Aphex's weirdness is done to brilliance, and the bass section at the end. '''''[[MostWonderfulSound Oh God, that bass section.]]'''''
* The sheer impact that ''SAW 85-92'' had on the electronic music genre. Imagine putting the album on in 1992, listening to "Xtal" for the first time, and hearing sounds that have never before been heard..

** [[CarefulWithThatAxe The screaming section]] is arguably the most intense moment in electronic music history, and it's bound to send chills rocketing down your spine.
* Richard's two contributions to Music/NineInchNails' remix album of ''Music/TheDownwardSpiral'', ''Further Down the Spiral'', were highly seen as the biggest standout tracks on the album. The kicker? ''Richard never listened to the original album before making them.''

* If Aphex wasn't in ArchivePanic mode before, he sure is now, when he unleashed over 150 unreleased tracks on Soundcloud (under the name user48736353001) over the course of a couple months. Talk about making up for lost time.

* "Come to Daddy" was the only music video seen as being worthy of making the list of ''Series/The100GreatestScaryMoments''. Even better? It placed '''#35'''. That's pretty impressive, no?
