Even though you don't get to hear the full length of all the tracks, I think the mixing - though mad and eclectic again - makes you appreciate some of the tracks in a new kind of way.
I couldn't stop listening to this when I first bought it and everyone I've played it to (regardless of what they think of Tricky) has been damn impressed too.
I would say that 85% of the songs are of a good quality, but they are classics and you will probably know them already - Lullaby, Night Nurse, Mirror In The Bathroom, My Melody, Much Finer are brilliant songs and the beatmixing just about does them justice. The surprise hit of the album for me was Kate Bush's Eat The Music, which is a joyous uptempo folk affair. However, Tricky's various pubescent protegees let the side down a bit, their contributions being outdated in style and devoid of much tune, and by the end of the album (when they feature most heavily) whoever was at the help of the ProTools seems to have lost most of his inspiration.
The first track raised expectations but from there the album spirals out of control into a mish mash of unnattractive and sometimes dire listening.
My advice to you is simple -do not buy this album. Try looking towards the inspiring late night tales if you are looking for after hours grooving
