A return to PMT/AWDF form after Juxtapose. This comes across as a combination of the less cluttered production from Juxtapose with the darker guitar-based moments from PMT/AWDF. The live track is very cool (reminds me of Lyrics of Fury, for some reason). The bootleg is a rarity, apparently and features Tricky rapping about his old record company. -- OJH

When one listens to Tricky they must keep in mind that he is an ever-changing musician, he will not bury himself in one style of music. Instead, he is constantly finding new routes to take his music. For example, with his '95 release "Maxinquaye" he took listeners on a journey of bent and twisted keyboard effects with a dash of odd drum beats. With his next set of releases ("Pre-Millennium Tension", "Angels with Dirty Faces", and "Juxtapose") Tricky continued to change his music. "Pre-Millennioum Tension" was dark and scary, while "Angels with Dirty Faces" was pure anger and frustration. "Juxtapose" was a Tricky pop experimentation gone evil. The "Mission Accomplished" EP is energetic. Powerful, it is Tricky wearing another of his many faces. A new fask, if you will. Buy this CD if you're into creative ideas. If you're not a Tricky fan, check it out- you might enjoy it. However, if you are a Tricky fan- You Better Buy This!

From the first track out you can tell that this album holds closer to what we heard on Tricky's last album Juxtapose. The Title track Mission Accomplished is a remix/remake of the Mission Impossiable theme song. It has a very hard edge to and has Tricky's raspy vocals weaving all through out. The second song on this EP Crazy Claws is perhaps the best. Featuring Maddog with whom Tricky shared much of the light with on Juxtapose, the song flows extreammly well with the trade off between Tricky and Maddog. Tricky Vs. Lynx showcases Tricky's lyrical style over a typically disjointed Tricky beat. While the final song Divine Comedy is not a new track to die hard Tricky fans, seeing that it was released on bootleg vinal. The song on the EP is a trimed down version of the orginal. This new version while conveying the message of the song doesn't seem to convey the same amout of anger. All in all this is a CD worth buying particuarlly if you are a Tricky fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Juxtapose 11 Jan. 2001
By Joe Kenney - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Here it is, Tricky's latest release. Too bad it's only available as an import, but what can you do? There are four tracks on here, each of them slightly better than any of the songs on Tricky's last album, Juxtapose. First up there the title track, Mission Accomplished, which is a heavy metal remake of the theme from Mission Impossible, with some guy singing the chorus to Peter Gabriel's "Big Time" overtop the music. Tricky's own voice only shows up occasionally, muttering the "Big Time" chorus lyrics along with this uncredited guest vocalist. I've checked the liner notes twice, and still haven't found any mention of who played the background music on this EP's 4 tracks, and who helped with the vocals. Anyway, the next track is "Crazy Claws," which sounds like something Tricky might've done back in his Angels With Dirty Faces days, just with a more modern/Juxtapose beat, which is very junglish. Things sound great until Mad Dogg, who was featured so prominently on Juxtapose, shows up. Nothing against the guy, I think he has great rapping skills, but I always find his appearances on Tricky's songs a little grating. Like, the song is going along all nice and smooth and then Mad Dogg shows up and starts rhyming a hundred words a second. It just doesn't work, and it's going to sound dated in 5 years. However, Mad Dogg makes another appearance on the third track, "Tricky vs Lynx," and on this song he sounds great. This is probably because the music is just as fast as his rhyming. This track is live and will give you a good idea of how much more energized Tricky is in concert. I'm not for sure, but it sounds like Tricky is rapping with Mad Dogg for most of the lyrics, but his voice is too low in the mix. Finally we have "Divine Comedy," an infamous track that is from the Angels With Dirty Faces days. This was Tricky's slap in the face to Polygram, which at the time had an employee who made racist remarks. Musically, this song is the same as "Money Greedy" off the Angels album, but with different, more biting lyrics. But anyway it's great to hear from Tricky again. Apparently a new album is coming soon and none of these songs will be featured on it. Also this is a limited edition EP, so get it while you can.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unexciting exclusives 10 Feb. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This EP is the first release from Tricky since he left Island records. It comes from the independent label Ante european branch of Epitaph Records. He was not happy with the way he was treated by the major label. The music on this EP is stuff left over from his years at Isaland/Polygram. He growls sarcastically "Polygram, thats what i am" in the final song, when his angst over his record label is presented in "Divine Comedy". This appeared on white label twelve-inch records a couple years ago, it is in response to a quote made by an Island Records executive who stated all his black artists were convicts. "Divine Comedy" is mostly just the music from "Money Greedy" from his earlier album "Angels with Dirty Faces". It does include strong lyrics aimed direclty at the suits who work at Polygram. Other tracks include mediocre rapping from Mad Dog. Tricky may be able to rescue his career with his next album, it will help that none of these tracks will be on it. A new beginning with another label may give Tricky the artistic freedom to make music worthy of comparison to his finer, earlier work. Pick up this EP only if you are a completionist.
4.0 out of 5 stars good for the tricky fan 7 Aug. 2002
By matt - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a good EP if you are already a fan of Tricky, sort of a mix between Angels With Dirty Faces and Juxtapose. The song Crazy Claws is excellent, and Tricky Vs. Lynx only has vocals by Mad Dog, but is still a good track and gives you a taste of what his live shows are like. Mission Accomplished doesn't stand out very much but Divine comedy is a new twist on the music from Money Greedy, with some very good lyrics. If you like Tricky and have most of his albums I recommend this, although it's not a good place to start if you haven't heard much of him, especially at ten dollars for only four tracks.
4.0 out of 5 stars 'it's tricky to rock around' 8 Jan. 2001
By K-MAN - Published on
Format: Audio CD
four tracks...eleven bucks? steep price but if you are a fan it's definitely worth it. the first three tracks are very fresh they would have fit on the juxtapose album, last track is from the angels with dirty faces period and man is it phat. great ep, can't wait for a full length album.
2.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't accomplish much 7 May 2009
By IRate - Published on
Format: Audio CD
2 1/2

Bit of a toss-off short length is not without merit but is so bare-bones it hardly is worth the trouble. If you enjoyed the pioneering trip-hop producer's continued forays into hip-hop than with low expectations this may appease.
