This remaster, however, is a slick, fast favourite. The Robots, for instance, fares far better here than the original, which is somewhat sluggish, the sound of a creature being slowly wound into life. Thirteen years on, something far more energising pings into life. In the update, it has a wiggle in its hips, a joyful, snakish lilt.

The robot voice is also more confident, showing artificial intelligence with a purpose, an intention, a power. Tour de France Soundtracks sounds like a quirky curio these days, or an album of afterthoughts inspired by a much earlier starting point, but this brief track finishes it off like an appropriate elegy. Slow, gracious and glimmering, as the album it sits on gently comes to a standstill, a deep, robotic voice tells us that things are done for now.
