A great trip-hop album with vocals from Martina Topley-Bird that fit the bill completely and infuse the record with a shot of soul. Tricky's rapping works quite well too and his dark, gritty lyrics match the atmospheric production.

Spin-off dei Massive Attack ( dei quali comunque è sempre stato solo un collaboratore ), Tricky da solo ( da solo per modo di dire… ) fa assai bene, anche se la casa madre è un'altra cosa. Atmosfere plumbee, ritmi lenti ma a volte convulsi, ottima musica da club fumosi e quel blues per il nuovo millennio ( campionato da Isaac Hayes ) che è "Hell's around the corner".

Good record. Perfect for late night chilling out. Slightly overlong but still very good.

From LordMark
The first half is particularly great. While it's definitely not my favourite trip hop album, it clearly had a huge influence on Massive Attack's Mezzanine, and for that, I will always think highly of this debut album.

I love Massive Attack and I enjoy some of Tricky's other albums. This is a perfectly serviceable collection, but I can't get excited about Martina Topley-Bird's voice. My favorite tracks are the ones that more heavily feature Tricky.

Like being trapped in a hot steamy ventilation duct that's part of some ancient alien biomechanical structure, the purpose of which has long been forgotten... Yeah, like in Alien but more claustrophobic.
