    From a production standpoint, When You're Gone is a simply stunning effort, one that is continually intriguing and constantly surprising.

    What Lapalux manages to do here is capture something of the mood of his time in the sonic language of his time. It's a real achievement.

    The same could be said for Lapalux's production ability; this is a brilliant EP, but he's still to reveal his full potential.
  4. It's as if you chucked the lot into a tumble dry and waited to see what came out, ultimately ending up with something completely different.

    Howard's Brainfeeder debut shatters expectations, offering an always shifting balance of alien and familiar. [But] It's not perfect.

    It never fully sounds laid back, as if the producer is unwilling to let his sounds run as rampant or give into the funk quite like his Californian counterparts.
