    A visionary piece of work. If you don't like it, that means you are a pleb. Awesome percussion throughout, and the way they incorporated brass and woodwind is great. The fact that it wasn't even nominated for the mercury music prize shows you how stupid and irrelevant the mercury music prize is.

    Hidden is not just the most original record to emerge from Britain this year, but the most unfathomable: an immaculate enigma.
  2. Barnett's blue-sky dreaming is actually a pretty accurate description of Hidden – heavily beat-driven, almost entirely absent of guitars, and laced with large amounts of elaborately arranged woodwind and brass. Does it work? Largely, yes.
  3. Showing clear progression and monumental ambition, TNP have crafted a stark and dense knockout performance.
