The difference is that, 10 years and countless Aphex imitators later, these old tricks now sound a bit tired – easy, even. What’s missing is that impish, dangerous side, the famous contorted grin and all that it suggests: humour and horror, surprise and confrontation.

This superb second album makes a ... dramatic leap forward – vaulting straight from evident promise to its stringent and unarguable realisation.

Right to the final decayed note, Lost In The Dream is a triumph of emotive feel amid neurotic detail: immaculately conceived big music for little people.
