Although not strictly an Ambient Album, this is definitely a much quieter affair than 'Richard D. James', usual eclectic offerings. By mixing elements of minimalist techno, with traces of Electronic ambient.....this feels more at home, as an Electronica Album, rather than the subtle soundscapes of true ambience.

Nevertheless, this is ultimately a superior Electronica album, as there is something here for any fan of intelligent Electronic music. True!!, the album does start with the first couple of tracks such as: "Xtal" & "Tha", taking their cue from genuine ambient craftsmanship, and halfway through the album slight elements of minimalist techno are introduced, but by the time the Jaw dropping "Ptolemy" has wandered into the your subconscious......the changeover from minimal techno through to Electronica has firmly taken place. "Selected Ambient Works 85-92", has too much of a club-orientated bass-line to be an authentic ambient album, but Judged on this work alone!! Richard D. James's, TRUE craftsmanship, ISN'T in his usual genre of 'Experimental / idiosyncratic' Techno.
