Tricky: Pre-Millennium Tension (Fourth & Broadway BR 623 CD/MC/LP)
David Toop, The Wire, October 1996
ANY MUSICIAN who debuts at creative boiling point is going to slap into problems before too long. A couple of years of press saturation, blind acceptance by critics and audience, questionable new friendships, money in the bank, steam jets of everyday pressure screwing with the life; all that will douse the fiercest ardour.
