* {{Narm}}: While "Come To Daddy" is still an awesome song, some of the lyrics are a bit over-the-top. '''[[EvilIsHammy "I WILL EAT YOUR SOOOOUUUUL!!!"]]'''

** Of course, "Windowlicker" is in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''.

** Of course, Some of his music has been used in the [[Radio/GTARadio radio stations]] of ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' games; "Z Twig" was featured in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV'', and "Windowlicker" is in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV''.''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' (albeit edited to cut off around the 2.5-minute mark).



** "Piano [=Un10=] It Happened"

** 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 2, so, that's a plus.

* 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.

* VindicatedByHistory:
** While initial reception to ''Selected Ambient Works Volume II'' was somewhat mixed, it has since been Vindicated by History and received as a timeless classic in the ambient genre. The song "Rhubarb" has gone on to become a fan favorite and has been acclaimed as one of the best Aphex Twin songs ever created.
** ''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.

** Pretty much all of ''Syro'', but Minipops 67 and CIRCLONT6A stand out.
* FandomRivalry: With the fandom of Music/{{Skrillex}}. Odd, because Skrillex himself is a '''HUGE''' fan of Aphex Twin, so much he declared him as his main influence. Becomes even more odd if you consider that Aphex openly stated he doesn't know much of Skrillex to give an opinion of him, but also said that he respects the more mainstream electronic music artists, finding them as a {{gateway|Series}} to electronic music in general.

** It can be a bit daunting figuring out how to get into Richard D. James' music, considering all of the aliases and styles of music present. Many (including [[http://vignette1.wikia.nocookie.net/4chanmusic/images/b/b4/APHEX_TWIN.jpg this flowchart]]) suggest to start with 1992's ''Selected Ambient Works 85-92'', then branch to ''Richard d. James album'' and ''SYRO'' (all released under the Aphex Twin name), and finding what one likes from there.

** "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.
