Don’t shout it too loud, but Jamie T is emerging from his post-hiatus cocoon as somewhat of a butterfly.

2014’s ‘Carry on the Grudge’ took a little getting used to - a more mature version of the emphatically energetic tyke of his first two albums. ‘Trick’, though, sees the transformation really take hold.

On occasion it’s both fun and fantastical in the same beat - ‘Tescoland’, ‘Joan Of Arc’ and ‘Robin Hood’ all pleasingly hook-laden and fancy free. ‘Drone Strike’ is enough to give Muse’s Matt Bellamy nightmares, while ‘Dragon Bones’ packs its own swagger just in case.

It’s ‘Power Over Men’ that really shows the new, more grown up Jamie T is the definitive take, though. Just look at him fly. Stephen Ackroyd
