I just finished downloading the complete discography (and I mean complete) of Aphex Twin (1,138Meg)

And it's arranged into neat little sub folders. I won't be leaving the flat for a long, long time. :bounce:

Has anyone else ever shamelessly stolen a whole artists backcatalogue and not felt the slightest bit guilty?

No, although I may give in and do so in he near future.

Does it have the remix he did of Phillip Glass’s remix of David Bowie’s Heroes?

I don't download music.

I only ever download full albums if I can find no other way to get hold of that music at a reasonable price. I occasionally download the odd track or two by artists I think I'm likely to like but have never actually heard before.

I don't usually download albums either., I buy many CD's frequently. If someone has made something you enjoy, it is only right that you pay them for the privillage of hearing it, but there are a few things to consider in the case of Aphex Twin.

As brilliant an artist as he is, no one can argue that some of his stuff is utter, self indulgent rubbish which sounds like (and probably was) it was made it about 5 minutes. Until now the only way to hear this stuff was to spend hours/weeks/months tracking down some obscure, long deleted EP with 4 substanded tracks (if you're lucky, often 1 track and 3 "remixes"), and then paying a small fortune for it. This, I feel, isnt on. I already owned pretty much all his stuff you can buy on CD (no record player), so it's more out of curiousity that I downloaded this. Whilst some if it is good, I'd be pretty pissed off if I'd shelled out a fair bit of money to hear it.

I do feel bad that Aphex Twin has undoubtedly lost out somewhere (though I would imagine he embraces new technology). It is his record label,publisher,distributor etc's who control the availability of his music and it isn't his fault. But nor is it mine.

Is this the same thievery that earlier led you to comment...
