"Okay, I pull this out of the CD case only to hear the 10th track, called, "No. 19" by Aphex Twin. It's a slow, simple sad ambient track, with a beautiful warm analog synthesizer sound that keeps repeating in a wonderfully soft way. Must be heard to be appreciated. I'm one of those Aphex Twin fans from when he FIRST STARTED (I almost have ALL of his releases, even the vinyl only stuff he did under pseudonyms...) and even though I applaud where he's taken his sound (check out Come to Daddy EP and the Drukqs album) I find myself skipping past most of the harder stuff to appreciate his soft, ambient stuff. BONUS FACT: This track, "No. 19" was before only accessible on the Aphex Twin album titled: Selected Ambient Works 2. But the CD doesn't have this track it's only on the VINYL IMPORT release (Warp records) - that's why it doesn't have a name because all of the releases on SAW2 were not named, they instead have pictures that he named them with, on the inside sleeve of the cd (like Mr. Eno used to do...)So the only other release with this is THIS CD, "Excursions in Ambience 3". Get it & feel lucky you found this brilliant beutiful track!"

"Just the ultra rare Aphex Twin track #19 (aka "Stone in Focus") is worth the price of admission on this Astralwerks compilation. The only other place this is available on the limited 10,000 brown vinyl pressing of Selected Ambient Works II. It is missing from the SAW II CD release."

"WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!! This is by far my favorite ambient cd of all time, and I might add the cd that first got me into ambient as well, around three years ago. Be sure to check out track number 3 by Seefeel and track number one by Spacetime Contiuum. Very dreamy. Not for impatient people."
