  1. The gears that never quite mesh in this disquieting but hardly apocalyptic industrial ambient may be metal and may be plastic but are probably both.

    It's largely downtempo – live drums and bass provide a roomy, dub-tinged framework for all the emergent noise – but treads a fine line between tension and chaos, right up to the quietly thrilling, systems-failure decay of the album's final moments. A hugely impressive rebirth.

    It is, in short, the sound of a group confidently, and unassumingly, re-defining its own universe.

    Lacks the otherworldly impact of their 1990s releases, but well worth listening to.

    Seefeel is nowhere near the mountainous masterpiece of BoC's best records, but it's pulled off with a respectable professionalism. Richard D James would be proud.

    Despite this not quite equalling the dizzy heights of their earliest recordings, there's an adventurous slake in its dysfunctional make-up to suggest this won't be the last time we hear from its evasive creators.

    Seefeel is a thorny album, a thicket of crackling guitars and faltering rhythms.
