Is what you might hear. It's all up to you & your imagination. I simply loved the time when Tricky & Martine (the female voice you hear through out the album/disc.) To me they are liquid magic, a touch of abstraction, seduction, art, poverty, pleasure, sex, fear, ... etc. Beautiful & powerful - It's a mojo thing; as if it had sprung from the depths of my ancestors home town of New Orleans. I love revisiting these sounds during the time I was enrolled in University there (UNO). This music helped see me through all the papers to be written, books to be read, & studying to do. All while holding down a 3/4 time job & full load each semester. This album got me through all that & more. It made me soar. And every weekend I'd dance my frets & worries away! All the while singing along with this - my favorite Tricky dish.
Tricky's solo debut, "Maxinquaye," is classic trip hop. Indeed, from what I've read, it's one of the seminal works of the genre. A mellow groove runs throughout the disc. Be advised, there are lots of sexual references. I was a little surprised that Tricky did not play a more prominent role in the vocal mix. That being said, Martine Topley-Bird's cool, detached vocals work perfectly with the music. Alison Goldfrapp also makes a nice contribution on "Pumpkin." The last four songs are not as strong as the first eight. Still, this is a really good CD. If you like Massive Attack and Portishead, like I do, you should like this too. Highly recommended.
Great vinyl pressing of this classic 90s album. Beautiful packaging too. Enjoying rediscovering this gem.
