iTunes Review

If unease were an art form, then Maxinquaye would be its Sistine Chapel. Thanks to its unhurried hush, the album is a make-out must, but it's the pervading sense of danger that makes it so sensually sinister. Tricky and Martina Topley-Bird play devil and angel on your shoulders, trading gravelly raps with cool, crystalline delivery. Despite the claustrophobic atmospheres, there's something for every mood, from the sultry whispers of "Overcome" to a thrilling Public Enemy cover, "Black Steel". Listen loud—and, preferably, late at night.

Haunting beauty...

This album didn't really sink in until i'd come back to it after a few years. It's got depth and beauty that i didn't even realize the first time round. Tricky is a master of disguise. Get this!

mmmmmm...

very very very very good album. for me it defined the 90s, and is a classic album, would put it up there with dummy and blue lines, which is a huge compliment

Classic!

This album is one of the best albums of the Nineties. Tricky's debut album is his finest hour with every track being a classic.
