Somehow or other, in the last two months, PMT has managed to wrap its seductive claws around me: I used to hate it, and now I love it to pieces. Funny how some albums can do that to you, isn't it?
The opener, Vent, sets the tone for the remainder of the album: dark, brooding and compulsive, Tricky rasps, "can hardly breathe" over a bass line that ripples around him. The pattern continues with track two, "Christiansands", before the barely restrained anger of "Tricky Kid" seeps through the speakers. There are other gems on this album: "Sex Drive" sounds like nothing I've ever heard before, but it retains Tricky's anger in the earlier tracks. The album continues piling on the acrimony in "Lyrics of Fury", and even the last track, "Piano", runs uneasily between sharp chords and the medical pump creeping along in the background.
Despite all-round quality, there is a definite winner here. If one song stops you in your tracks and makes you listen, it is "Makes me Wanna Die", which remains one of the most achingly beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard.
Be warned, this album takes some patience; but I guarantee, if you stick with it, you'll be rewarded with some of the finest, and most thoughtful music ever made.

Format: Audio CD
Bought this when it first came out... having had Maxinquaye a while and loving it. Was kinda disappointed to be honest... wasn't grabbed straight away. Now it's 2007 and I have five albums by Tricky - this is probably my second favourite. That's not to say the others are bad, it's just that this album has really grown on me over time.

You just know that there's a lot of depression and drugs involved in what Tricky gets up to... you can imagine him in some dive somewhere in Bristol, lying on a stained couch, with smoke all around him... scribbling quick witty lines onto a crumpled piece of paper - well, I can anyway... hell, he might have an Apple Mac to write his lyrics and music on, but somehow I doubt it.

Tricky Kid is the stand-out track for me on this album - as always you get a bit of Tricky with a bit of some other people, some you might know if you're a big fan, but suffice to say, they're always picked well. This track has someone called "D" on it (dunno who that is, don't care) but it's brilliant... Tricky's just banging on, singing away, and this D character is getting all visceral and just shouting into the microphone in some kind of manic challenge... "Tell me where you're at, baby!" and then.... "Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!" as loud as you like - delicious.

I also like Makes Me Wanna Die... doesn't depress me at all, I like this singer a lot (don't even think Tricky makes an appearance on this track apart from the odd whisper), one who appears on a lot of Tricky stuff I think. Ghetto Youth is good as well. Hell, I call myself some kind of fan - not really - I just like the music and this album comes with a firm thumbs-up recommendation from me.

An underrated album by the press, this album is for me almost as good as Maxinquaye. Whereas the album which followed this faltered slightly, Pre-Millennium Tension is a heavy album you can really get into. Great, atmospheric tracks and good for times when you don't want to smile!!

Tricky from my home town of Bristol is a great and unique producer. From Massive attacks start he has gone on to produce some amazing sounds. Be prepared though for major tripped out weirdness. I think you will appreciate it if you like artists such as Bjork and Roots Manuva. I know they are very different but somewhere in-between lies our eccentric Tricky!

Overall really good album and ahead of it's time in retrospect especially hearing Martina Topley Bird's voice featuring. Recommend if you like Massive Attack and modern soundtracks. My favourite tracks include She Makes Me Wanna Die.
