8/10 Barry Customer review, 29th August 2013

Much like a giant robot and/or alien standing relentlessly on two buildings at the same time, Jon Hopkins manages to straddle the not-so fine lines between modern classical, IDM and dubstep/bassy nonsense with incredible panache. Opener 'The Wider Sun' is a good place to start to achieve the first of those three genre separations, and is probably the most clear-cut 'definable' track of the lot. Beautiful violins weave between each-other like something you would expect to hear on the soundtrack for 'True Grit' or something of a similar ilk.

As the album progresses, things just get stranger. Title track 'Insides' is not entirely dissimilar to a sped up, more lively Ben Frost, and such similarities don't end with that track. Throughout the whole of this album, there are crushingly heavy drum beats, beautifully stuttered rhythms and a huge amount of production skill. For those who loved this year's 'Immunity' Album, this is a clear predecessor, but a fantastically different beast. Just as accomplished, and beautifully rhythmic.
