4.0 out of 5 stars Uh-oh... Tricky's in a good mood! 6 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been a fan of Tricky since his Massive Attack days and the journey through his albums hasn't always been a good one. "Maxinquaye" is still his finest moment, but "Blowback" comes very close. By his standards, this is a pop album and sounds like a US-style counterpoint to the Bristol-based Maxinquaye.
A bright and clean(ish) first half containing fab riffs on Eurythmics "Sweet Dreams" and the theme from Wonder Woman, gradually twists into the kind of shadowy raving Tricky is best known for. To wrap things up, the final listed track, "Song For Yukiko" throws a swerve. It's a strange, beautiful piano-based song that's unlike anything he's done before. There are two additional tracks on the CD, including an "Evolution" remix, but that's where it should end.
Great contributions from most of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Cyndi Lauper and Alanis Morissette help shape an album that, as always, sounds like nothing else on the planet.

5.0 out of 5 stars The return of the Dark Bristolian Knight 5 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is a great return to form for the old Trickster. his last album "Juxtapose" was a slick reinvention, finding comfort in the American form of Hip Hop. Here Tricky seems to have become homesick and has once again returned to the paranoia surrounding his beautiful first two albums. The contraversial front cover, was banned from posters in Hollywood, it is of him recieving a "blowback" (a form of Cannabis smoking)from a seemingly near naked lady. This controversy is carried through in his choices of singers employed. Collaborating with Alanis Morrisette and Cyndi Lauper on "Excess" and "Five Days" respectively would seem offputting. Don't be fooled, their voices seem somehow fit, like Terry Hall's and Alison Moyet's did in his Nearly God project. Having said that this is no "Maxinquaye," the dark blend of Hip Hop and downbeats is there, but there is also something else; As Tricky matures he has become aware of the music that surrounds him and what charts. There is a certain pop tinge to this album, but this is also good. The bleakness interspersed with pure listening pleasure. As can be seen on the, very catchy, fothcoming single "Evolution Revolution Love." I am a huge fan of Tricky's, I have been disappointed, now I am slowly returning to the fold. Buy it!

At last, Tricky fulfills the potential his early work showed, and regains the explosive dominant form he displayed with Maxinquaye. After losing his way and suffering at the hands of the critics, with Pre-millenium tension, BLOWBACK shows that not only does Tricky still know how to put a tune together, he can fuse just about any influence, and come out with dark, powerful melodies that remain with you hours after listening.
Excess, the opening track, throws country riffs into the melting pot, along with a dark bassline and cleverly syncopated vocals (a theme which occurs throughout the album) to produce something reminiscent of an evil Primal Scream.
Evolution, Revolution, Love, which follows, has echoes of early Massive Attack, but Tricky has clearly evolved from those days. With a haunting hook, thumping bouncing bassline and superb production, this song alone makes the album worth buying.
Without wishing to list the tracks one by one let me say that there are no poor songs to be found on the album, it has been well thought out, and doesn't disappoint die-hard Tricky fans, but will have something to offer anyone with even a vague knowledge of the Trip Hop genre. Tricky has taken his sound further than his previous efforts, while holding on to his distinctive sound, and produced and album worthy of pride of place in any collection. At least until someone tops it, which could take some time.

5.0 out of 5 stars tricky is back 2 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
well I dont write many review usually but I am so excited about this album I think I should set the ball rolling...I own every album and ep that Tricky has made, and thank God, he seems to be surfacing again after an extended stay in the dark side. What really makes BlowBack so outstanding is the wealth of vocalists employed to give Tricky's ...croak an element of surprise again. On many tracks Tricky Kid makes a minimal contribution, which is nice to see as many artists see a guest vocalist on their track as an opportunity to shout them down!! But Tricky is content to let the guests (see track listings) take a large part of the duties, and on occasion (ie.Five Days) seems to echo the words of the guests with seductive whispers, as he did with Martina Topley Bird back on Maxinequaye. The production is tight, the beats are great, and the album as a whole has lost the claustrophobic cloud that hovered over his last three LP's, in favour of an almost upbeat feel (Your Name, Girls), with just the right amount of sleaze to bring to mind Tricky bumping around the streets of New York and Knowle West. This is probably his best work since Maxinquaye, and as such, I recommend it highly. Treat Yourself, be brave.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent album, definately one of his best! 4 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"It's definitely the most ear-friendly of all my albums. I feel like I've been sitting around for a couple of years complaining about what's on MTV and the radio. You can only do that for so long. If you want to hear good music on the radio, you need to make an album." Tricky, MTV. Well what can I say other than an excellent album! Definitely his best his since Maxinquaye. This album is a lot more accessible than his previous ones singing with artists such as Alanis Morrissette and Cyndi Lauper. Yes your probably thinking the same as I did when I first read it, "Alanis Morrissette, the one that hasn't got a clue about irony. What's she doing on Trickys album?" But in actual fact they mesh, and they mesh well! Cyndi Lauper sings in one of the deeper tracks on the album 'Five Days', and Tricky has also involved the vocals of Hawkman, his newfound buddy. The track that inspired me to buy this album was the single Evolution, Revolution, Love and so I think if you take a liking to this track, then you will Blowback.
