5.0 out of 5 stars A first class piece of electronic music March 14, 2010
Aphex Twin's "Come to Daddy - Pappy Mix" is a dynamic piece of modern electronic music. Led by a driving, rapid drum beat, the piece starts off fully charged and never relents. This sometimes varying drum beat is interspersed with vocal samples that give it a devastatingly haunting effect, leading to emotions of fear and intrigue. This drum beat is an electronically produced beat, modified by some processes but still distinctively percussive. Early on in the song, a sample of the words "come to daddy" is repeated a few times, which is just the start of the mysterious and scary vibe the song projects. The other vocal samples used in the piece are not distinguishable in terms of what is said - the vocal samples are more like screams, but they never the less augment the tone of the song. Just over half way into the song, the drum beat changes morphs into a slower rhythm compared to the rest of the song for a few measures, and this generates much anticipation for the listener. This rhythmically slow break is followed by a piercing, terrifying thirty-second scream. This scream is the climax of the song, but the songs ending does not disappoint. The last minute of "Come to Daddy" results in yet another addictive, albeit slower, beat overlaid with ambient clouds and vocal samples - the combination does not disappoint. Finally, it must be said that if a picture is worth a thousand words, a piece of electronic music is worth ten thousand words, for there is really no written description that can do it justice - listen to it yourself!
Richard David James, the mastermind behind Aphex Twin, is long known for his musicianship in the electronic music genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest songs of all time... September 27, 2009
this song is so great. Definately one of my top 50 songs of all time. It sounds very little like the other works of aphex twin (though the drumming is very Aphex Twin) so if you love this song, it doesn't mean you'll like Aphex Twin's body of work and if you're an Aphex Twin fan... well, if you're a fan, then you're probably quite familiar with this song. A masterpiece.
