Probably my third or fourth favourite Tricky album...,
This review is from: Angels With Dirty Faces (Audio CD)
Maxinquaye is an album that I have really enjoyed since I picked it up way back in 1996 or 1997 because I couldn't get the Dummy album by Portishead at the time... I was young and I just wanted to spend some money... I loved Maxinquaye. This album, on the other hand, does have some stonking tracks on it, but it never grabbed me and shook me around like Maxinquaye did... or even Pre-millennium Tension. On this album, there are three real stand-out tracks for me - Money Greedy, Singing The Blues and Talk To Me - as per normal you get some of Tricky and some of other folk... with Tricky whispering, growling or speaking and sounding like he's rolling gravel around in his mouth... all partially swallowed up with constant stonking ear-bleeding beats... true to form I'd say.
So... in closing... if you're new to Tricky, start with Maxinquaye, then Pre-Millennium Tension and, probably, Blowback before getting this. But if you're into Tricky already, you'll probably not go wrong with getting this.
