Tricky: Dodgy Geezer

Jim Arundel, Melody Maker, 29 January 1994

At last count Tricky owes me two stereos and an eardrum. Yup, when the bassline to 'Aftermath' thunders into your life your woofers are history, bub. But don't expect frantic dancefloor action. Like the work of Tricky's antecedents Massive Attack, 'Aftermath' is a moody, fuggy thang, not at all heavy on the BPM.

Total word count of piece: 628
