"I can see by looking at this album and his newer stuff that Aphex Twin has evolved with his musical style since this album. Classics is a minimum effort album as far as I can see, just wierd sounds replacing normal drums and breakbeats. Very noisy and detatched. Though its not completly horrible, it comes pretty close."
A trip down memory lane for Aphex fans of yore.

"Classics is an Aphex Twin compilation with a sound that most Aphex fans are unfamiliar with. The songs are less flighty than his more recent endeavors such as the Richard D. James Album and Come To Daddy. The Classics album is heavy on the beats, and James' focus here is on finding a groove and riding it. Owners of his Polygon Window LP should recognize the style somewhat, in the similarity of the pounding of the bass and drums, less skittish and more forceful. This is an album for losing oneself, forgetting your surroundings, and just spacing out for an hour or so. Classics is not the most accessible of Aphex albums, however, and one would do well to pick up some of his other work before venturing into his older, harder sound."
