Such an amazing release and so glad I own a cassette copy. 30 reviews and not a single one on how the tape sounds!
I thought the tones were nice, chunky and warm. The music really fits the format in this case, which is often a rare thing these days with speciality pressings...
Flangy, chorusy, big and dark, minimal and highly saturated. The beefy but gliding 909s are so tasty, you want to eat them from the speakers as they bleed out.
For an Aphex release, Cheetah is everything I could ask for--an Aphex record that is just as funky and groovy as it is minimal, hypnotic and atmospheric. A weird, drugged out, alien-dance of epic swanky proportions.

Puppets blindly climbing the walls! I am sick and tired of dogs discussing fiscal speculation. What happened to music and dreams? Humans work hard for this, and you reduce it to commodity like junk bonds and glad rags. Curses to those who think only of monies.

Hmmmm shall I buy a copy of this hold onto it for 20 years and maybe make $100 profit, which is less than half a days wage................seriously.

Anyone got a cassette copy and a real ZX Spectrum? I've been trying to load from the cassette into an emulator as I have some suspicion there is ZX loadable data on it, but I don't seem to be able to progress beyond some theory and possible ZX Tape headers buried in the music.

I got as far as described in the blog post linked below, but I don't think I can get any further without actual hardware.

Bought 3 Tapes! Will keep them sealed... oh yes sir!

got my tape and so glad I did... I wonder who is going to leave the tape they own sealed. I wonder where the other 1999 are

Does anyone know what tape format the cassette version uses? Ferro Type I, chrome type II or metal type IV? Also is it recorded with Dolby c or S noise reduction?
I've tweeted Bleep about this but got no response.
