In fact, I'd go so far as to say this is arguably the smoothest, most listenable set of tracks Mr. James has cooked up since 1995's classic I Care Because You Do album. The two albums have a similar tone, as they are both primarily beat-driven affairs (of the down/mid-tempo variety) and are generally subdued in nature. The Cheetah EP is basically one long head-bobbing session, with booming, generally chilled-out beats along with all the usual dreamy electronic flourishes that give these tunes that distinct Aphex Twin vibe. That said, there's nothing particularly arrhythmic or spastic to be found here (which is nice for me) but there's also nothing particularly trippy or unsettling about the music as well. And although that playful/experimental vibe is somewhat missed, this is an album you can groove and chill to without it being too abstract or challenging. In fact, it's downright melodic at times.
I can see how some AT fans would find this album a little too "one-note" or maybe even boring to a degree, but for yours truly, I find it's smoothness and chilled-out/head-bobbing beats to be refreshing and highly listenable. That unique feeling of existential bliss that only Aphex Twin can provide is also present here, which makes sense considering that feeling always resonated with me most on their more melodic/mid-tempo numbers.
Overall, this is Aphex Twin's most economical and smooth album. "Economical" and "smooth" may not be compelling or typical descriptions for an Aphex Twin album, but for me, they're meant as compliments. I dig it.
