For his first album in nearly two years, Anthony Child - better known, of course, under the Surgeon alias - has taken influence from The Tibetan Book of the Dead, a tome that famously also inspired the Beatles' "Tomorrow Never Knows". As a result, the Birmingham producer's usual moody modular techno rhythms and armour-plated grooves come brandishing decidedly trippy electronics, not to mention some serious psychedelic synth lines. Combine these with a willingness to explore electro and Autechre style IDM rhythms, and you have an album that could be Child's most impressive set for some time.
