First repress and the first time on coloured vinyl (pink) since the '90s. Originally released in 1996, recorded in Jamaica. Urbane and despairing, this trip-hop king's second album under his own name is a genuine fin-de-siecle concoction. apocalyptic messages are projected over layers of gleaming noises and libidinous rhythms that lurk underneath the surface like secret cities. Although his songs are full of sinister, futuristic overtones, Tricky refuses to be cornered as a messianic spokesperson. No longer working under the moniker 'Nearly God,' and discontented with the role of anonymous auteur, he's the 'tricky kid': simultaneously celebrating and bemoaning the musician-as-god paradigm.
