    Although it's a bit greedy to put the track made for coldplay on the album, it is a pretty decent listen. Some good emotional bits in there which echo the comments about the soundtracks as above. One complaint is it doesn't really gel as a complete album. Would love to see him live though!

    This album is a real piece of art.

    A good mix of ambient techno and shows off some instruments along the way. Good if you like ambient music or tasteful electronic music. I like Wire the most...

  1. His debut for Domino, 2009's Insides, is his first record that many people will hear and it's a promising, but flawed, debut.
  2. On a purely compositional level, this is dazzling and downright brilliant. But on a purely artistic level, Insides is a startling accomplishment.
  3. 'Autumn Hill' is one of several tracks that will doubtless find their way onto soundtracks (Hopkins's main source of revenue), but Insides deserves to be heard as a unique and complete work of art in its own right.
