If the original album doesn’t quite work, however, the re-issue points to a more interesting future. Added are five re-worked (or ‘re-dreamt’, as the band put it) tracks which push the electronic influences to the fore and they invariably far outshine the originals. Burning becomes unexpectedly moving while My Blood strips the song back to its rhythm and takes on a menacing, compelling quality reminiscent of latter-day Radiohead. Most surprisingly of all, the unremarkable Dreamboat becomes a textured, affecting triumph.
