All i can say is "thanks Tricky" for writing and releasing such a fantastic CD. Love EVERYTHING you have done, but this is a real treasure that you should be proud of. Saw him recently at the Heaven, London venue, promoting this CD where he was on stage for 2 hours 20 minutes and was reluctant to leave the stage! Brilliant on stage and fantastic on CD!!! Love this - it is up there!!!

Even though a few of Tricky's albums have been somewhat mediocre I have still bought everything
he has released. I always find something I like on them, an odd spark of genius, even if it's
just a song or three. Like the brilliant "Broken Homes from "Angels With Dirty Faces", "Every Day",
"Early Bird" and "Murder Weapon" from "Mixed Race", the voodoo funk of "Anti Histamine"(From the
"Broken Homes" single), "Smoking Beagles"(collaboration with Sub Sub)and the sad, hypnotic groove
of "Poems" from "Nearly God", an immensely beautiful song.

He will never top "Maxinquaye", an absolute classic and one of very few trip-hop albums that will
be remembered as original, influential and deeply affecting. Maybe it's a bit unfair to compare
everything he has done since 95 to the incredible sounds of his first album, but "Maxinquaye"
set the standard, a potent blend of social commentary, paranoia, melancholy and sexual tension.

The follow up, "Pre-Millennium Tension" is the closest he has come. There are quite a few great
songs on it, especially "Christiansands" and "Makes Me Wanna Die. It's also his darkest, most
claustrophobic album, and will be too weird for some.

"False idols" is one of his most even albums and is a welcome return to form. It has few real flaws,
but it's still somewhat of a frustrating listen. It contains A LOT of good songs, but I think it lacks
the standout songs that stand comparison to his best work, and the production, spare and elegant as it
is, is a little too unruffled and repetitive to make a lasting impression.

Q gave this only 3 stars. They're wrong. 'Nothing Matters' and 'Parenthesis' are 5*, but 'Nothing's Changed' is off the scale. The rest of the album? To be honest, don't know yet. Those tracks are on permanent repeat and have been for several weeks. I'll let you know about the rest of it later : ))

Really enjoyed this album, just gelled perfectly from track to track. Very deep. Totally recommend to anyone who has enjoyed either Massive Attack or Tricky in the past.

I love Tricky when he's growling along in the dirty muck of albums like PreMillenium Tension. This album seems to swerve from those type of songs when he and/or Francesca Belmonte sings but then gets a bit MOR when Fifi Rong takes over the singing. The sample from Japan's Ghosts is totally wasted and does nothing for a fairly weak song.

An unusual album. Slow in pace but it sees Tricky back to his peak & for me a real grower.

Tricky has always been on the cusp of greatness, for those who know his work, he has long been there, ready to take hold of his place in the light. If you don't know what he's about then it can be difficult to get into. Unless you put on this album, turn the volume up, sit back and simply enjoy.

'Nothing Matters' is one of the standouts along with the brilliant 'Parenthesis' and the numbing 'Tribal Drums'. 'Nothing's Changed' is another standout In an album that deserves to gain more recognition that it has.

Superb and a real delight for music lovers of all genres.
