iTunes Editors’ Notes

Now here's something we never thought we'd hear on a Tricky record: oil-slicked shades of the Black Keys (the gut-punching drums and knuckle-dragging guitars of "Every Day") and a ramshackle blend of bluesy bar-band riffs and loose sax lines ("Come To Me"). That's just the tip of Tricky's post-trip-hop iceberg, too. The producer/singer also tackles black-lit disco beats ("Time To Dance"), gangsta spy grooves ("Murder Weapon"), and a post-apocalyptic version of Daft Punk ("UK Jamaican," which translates "Technologic" as "Kingston logic"). In fact, the only clear nod to Tricky's storied past is "Ghetto Stars," a 21st-century noir score in search of the nearest silver screen. Or as Tricky put it in a Mixed Race press release, it's very "tense, street and urban. It's like a movie, almost." It's also the tightest Tricky record — 10 tracks in under 30 minutes! — in years.

Customer Reviews

Awesomely Trickified

After a spell in an occasionally brilliant but often foggy career doldrum, Tricky has ripped off two terrific albums in a row, Knowle West Boy then this even better mix of short but sweet songs with that inimitable Tricky production. Things open with a slow mean bluesy groove then into a an uptempo poppy deal then an horn-driven jazzy thing. Just fantastic. Who else but Tricky would open with a music box version of My Way followed by a cocked Glock pistol then hit the Peter Gunn classic for Murder Weapon. Of course followed by a sleek electronic 404-driven clubby Time To Dance. Just brilliant. Dude is on a serious roll - not a dud on this thing. Gimme MORE!

Best Tricky album in years....

From Bristol to London to Murder Weapon to Hakim to Ghetto Stars.......this album owns! Following Tricky since his days in Massive Attack, I must say that this is his strongest venture as a solo artist. I can't wait to see some of these tracks thrown down live. This album has major backbone!

not bad!

I can definitely hear some King Blackshear influence in this
