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.

I fully hated this album when I first heard it. It was Xmas, and I run up the stairs in my pyjamas all tigling with the excitement of my new CD. After all, I loved PMT more than Maxinquaye, and as a teenage heavy metal kid, darkness and difficulty come with the territory.
It has taken something like eight years for me to appreciate this album properly. There are no choruses or radio friendly bits like the first two albums. This is (or at least was) really experimental post-trip-hop-jazz. If Mezzanine was the album that brought Massive Attack to the attention of pop and rock fans (and thus the world) then Tricky did exactly the opposite with this. Martina still sounds lovely but there's nothing for her to harmonize with. Tricky doesn't rap so much as mutter like a scary crazy man. Beats are either headache inducing glitch, or barely rhythmic skitters. I might not be selling it to you, but it makes sense. After eight years.
And I think the reason I came round was because of all that urban/ two-step/ grime that has sneeked onto radio. You can hear a lot of the things Tricky does here on Sugababes ballards and Dizzee Rascal tracks. Not to mention the production on the new Kano album.
After this album, the boy lost his way slightly. Although Juxtpose does continue to create modern british hip-hop. Remember Tricky is your Christ forever and ever.

Anyone familiar with Tricky's work, from Maxinquaye, through Nearly God and PMT, will know where this album is coming from. More accessible than PMT, this album continues the growth in atmospheric blending of sounds that has followed a logical progression since Massive Attack. Combining some of the traditional palette of samples with exposure of personal themes, the album presents some interesting juxtapositions of Breakbeats, Jazz, Trip/Hip-hop, Blues and pure urban angst. Whilst some listeners will still find this too challenging, with a lack of sing-a-long numbers, stylistically and rhythmically this is Tricky at his envelope pushing best.

TWO STARS? Ugh. Face reader. Anyway: This isn't coffee table music. You won't be hosting many dinner parties to this. But that is a good thing, right? His darkest stuff yet. Jazzier than what has gone before. I bought this at the same time as Mezzanine (early 1999) and I think this is the better album. -- OJH
