Working under the pseudonym Mondo Cozmo, he takes a cut-and-paste sampling approach, fuses it to a nasal vocal delivery that offers a pastiche of early Dylan, then turns up the volume for a few stadium anthems, including the Oasis-tinged Gospel rouser Shine, the dumb yet upbeat Automatic and Come With Me, which opens with a delightful breakbeat approach that is slightly undone by its echoes of U2 Rattle and Hum-era rhythmic bombast.
