Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 25 June 2003
Tricky was always the poor relation to Massive Attack in my opinion, but with this album, Tricky has moved his sound on and kept it relevent, whereas MA's last two albums have lost themselves in a fug of dark beats and soulless navel-gazing - a great shame.
Tricky's latest has a greater "live instruments" sound to it. There is still plenty of experimental electronica, including, of all things, a sample from a classic Bollywood funk tune ("dum maaro dum") on the final track! But the sound is typically dark and multi-layered. Tricky's brooding, deep voice adds another dimension to the mainly female vocal-led tracks.
This may not be the best album you hear all year, but it's well worth a listen. I would award it 3.5 stars if I could, but I give it the benefit of the doubt. Tricky's best since Maxinquaye.
