  1. On his fourth and least austere album ventures into songlike territory without ever enlisting a vocalist, although vocal sounds do enter the mix.

    Lonely At The Top is a complex and elusive album: indulging in the sensualities of aural texture whilst retaining a depth of communicative potency.

    He's no longer hiding in clever loops or layering. This sensual album suggests a producer at the height of his powers.

    Oddly accessible and intriguing in its damaged form, Lonely is much bolder than the MOR, left-field beat music one might initially believe it would be.

    As methods go it can be messy, but it also throws up some interesting hybrids.

    Lonely At The Top has ample points to recommend it: its breadth of scope tempered by its unity of feel; the finesse of its construction paired with Blair's ear for bold sonic combinations. And yet it's curiously difficult to love.

    None of this stuff is particularly groundbreaking, but it does what it does quite well.
