Epworth packs some interesting sonic tricks into this record, particularly the chaotic crescendo of interlude The Eternal Now, but overall Voyager doesn’t have the memorability or consistency to justify stepping into the limelight when semi-anonymity has served him so well.

It’s a lot of… well, not much; a studio folly of sorts, (unsurprisingly) impeccable in sound but meandering without direction for the most part. And where, say, fellow magpies Gorillaz integrate their guests’ styles with mostly wild success, often the turns here feel like basic seasoning, as the tracks blend into each other.

A pop-rap fusion that doesn't quite achieve lift off.
