Dark but brilliant,
By A Customer
This review is from: Angels With Dirty Faces (Audio CD)
I personally think that this is Tricky's masterpiece. On the storming opening track 'Money Greedy' he rhymes 'I can't meet these expectations of these radio stations because I'm moving to the vibrations...different vibrations are killing me'. Money Greedy is an attack on his former partners in Massive Attack who compromised their music by firstly doing it for respect and then for the greed. It is very much a blues influenced style exemplified on the wonderful 'Broken Homes' (where he performs with PJ Harvey) and on 'Singin' the Blues'. Martina's and Tricky's distinctive vocals on tracks like 'Analyse Me', and 'Taxi' once again prove a sublime combination. This dark, bluesy and dreamy album is not easy but it is atmospheric and unique.
