Tricky: Juxtapose (Island)

Eric Weisbard, Spin, September 1999

IT ONLY SEEMS like Tricky is making the same album every time out. 1996's Nearly God stripped out whatever commercial possibilities Maxinquaye's paradigmatic trip-hop held; Pre-Millenium Tension restored him, at least for half a side, and remains his nearest modern-rock success.
