"If you're already a fan of Aphex Twin, you'll revel in Weidenbaum's deep dive into one of the artist's signature works. If not, you'll be surprised to learn that you've likely already heard his music in one form or another." – S.T. Vanairsdale
"I love how it evokes the way music circa 1994 was suffused with unknowable data." —Rob Sheffield"The chillout room masterpieces of Aphex Twin get the business from incisive writer Marc Weidenbaum. And really, the pairing couldn't be any more delicious." —Marke Bieschke, San Francisco Bay Guardian"A must-read for those interested in the artist." —Alarm Will Sound"Like all good critical studies, Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Volume II doesn’t provide the illusion of closure; rather, it expands minds, fostering the creation of textual meaning. I can offer no higher praise" – Paul Gleason, Caught in the Carousel
