Hey. Adrian. Err, Tricky. You mind if I drop in? I’m writing this review about your album, and I wanted you in it. You don’t have to say much – in fact, you don’t have to say anything if you don’t want to. I’m just trying to make a point. You named your last album after yourself, because you wanted to emerge from the shadows. I didn’t think you did. But that means we need to ask – how much can we see you in this Skilled Mechanics project? Well, I’ve lived in it a while – and there’s fewer crawlspaces to hide in, less smog to suffocate in, and I still can’t find my way out. In your other albums, the landscape would scuttle and drift, and you’d blink in and out as you willed; here the room remains a room, and yet you remain…well, I still don’t know what you are now. But that’s for the good. I like you better when I can’t define you.
