Tricky made a low-key entrance onto the music scene as a guest vocalist on Massive Attack's 1991 classic Blue Lines. There was little indication that he would resurface four years later with an album as powerfully unsettling as Maxinquaye. Accompanied by the sweet-voiced Martine, Tricky takes the listener on a tour of the dark corridors of his mind, dealing exclusively in paranoia and obsession. The striking rhythms of stand-out tracks Overcome, Hell Is Round The Corner and Suffocated Love merge seamlessly with a hard-rock reworking of Public Enemy's Black Steel In The Hour Of Chaos and the warped soul of Abbaon Fat Tracks to create one of the 90s' most compellingly atmospheric records.
