** Contrary to popular belief, there is no song by him called "Rubber Johnny"--what they're thinking about is a short film made by Chris Cunningham that Richard scored, and even then it's a remix of an Aphex Twin song done by Cunningham himself.

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: To this day, people are praising the effects in "Come to Daddy", "Windowlicker", and ''Rubber Johnny'' as holding up and still being realistic and disturbing.

** ''Drukqs'' came off the trail of ''Come to Daddy'' and ''Windowlicker'', and it was at the time dismissed as unimpressive, unrefined and mediocre. But after the dust settled a few years later, fans and critics eventually warmed up to the album's abrasive sound and melancholic tone, garnering high praise for the very same things it was once panned for.

* HellIsThatNoise:
** "Ventolin", which combines a piercing tone with crunching and discordant beats. The tone was described by James as what one hears when overdosing on Ventolin, aka Salbutamol, an asthma medication infamously known for [[MostAnnoyingSound having tinnitus as a side effect.]]
** The remix of "We Have Arrived" that he provided for Mescalinum United. They and "Ventolin" are the most migraine-inducing pieces in James' career.
** The robotic voice in "Come to Daddy" chanting about how much they're craving your soul. Special mention goes to [[CarefulWithThatAxe that scream.]]

* BrokenBase: '''...I Care Because You Do''' became this over time. Is it an underrated masterpiece full of interesting experimentation, or an awkward transition between his early ambient oeuvre and his later forays into acid and IDM? It's a rather touchy subject amongst Aphex fans.

** Something from his soundcloud, "5 Just Fall Asleep". The sound is alien in nature, but it's still relaxing and can induce sleepiness. It's also very reminiscent of ''Selected Ambient Works Volume II'', so, that's a plus.

*** Want more ambient-focused tracks? Well, kids. Here's the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_MyNOWZ6Tk "Phantoms (A Soundcloud Journey)" mix!]]

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFk6LRRUoLA "Blue Carpet"]], which sounds like it came from the ending of VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys4 but more synth-focused.
