Tricky's fifth album in five years - a collaboration with DJ Muggs and DMX producer Grease - may not be any less gloomy than his previous output yet most critics are agreed that it marks a return to form for the sullen hip-hopper
What They Say About It
"The improvements may be due to Tricky's reduced input," The Independent.
"Tricky has made his most gripping record since Maxinquaye, if not a total return to form," The Independent on Sunday.
"An exceptionally well-paced, orchestrally and vocally sophisticated, mature and God- darn musical offering, with none of the crass todger-waggling that the darker end of hip-hop usually goes in for," Evening Standard.
"A genuinely startling and - would you credit it - sometimes charming record," The Guardian.
