Everything.

Absolutely everything.

Seriously, everyone likes something else when it comes to Aphex Twin.

Windowlicker, try all of his "Ambient Works" albums, or whatever they're called.

Yeah.

I think the [Classics] album is a good starting point, but anything really is fine

Well the search tool might've been fucked up by the four letters so I guess you could've search it under 'Aphex' instead of 'Aphex Twin'.

I didn't really like Mike & Rich - except for that track "Eggy Toast".

It took me a while to get into Caustic Window and Polygon Window but I appreciate those a bit more now.
His new alias, The Tuss, is really worth checking out.
SAW 85-92 is my favourite though. Used to be drukQs. His earlier stuff has really grown on me.
SAW II is great aswell - have to be in a weird mood though. Great ambience. Never heard anything quite like it.
First one I got into was the RDJ album but he's got a lot of great stuff.

"Flaphead" is used at the end of the second episode of Dead Set. Fuck yeah. Fast Zombies + Classics = win.
