aka Elliot Gleave, pleasingly refuses to stick to a formula, even if it means swapping copycat hits for creativity on his latest release, The Evolution Of Man (Universal). The album, his fourth, includes Come Taste the Rainbow, with wailing metal guitar designed to be played at festivals. Close Enemies is dark ’80s electro with a dusting of dubstep, while Queen Of Your Dreams is a hands-inthe-air moment that also comes with a musical suckerpunch. Not many dance acts would employ Blur’s Graham Coxon on songwriting/ guitar duties – they combine on the deliberately jarring Crying Out For Help – while the great All My Lows (made with Melbourne’s Dirty South) manages to be both emotional and an anthem. Overall, the album is electronica with imagination that makes for intense listening.
