Ok, I liked his first one a lot and am happy to have it in my cd shelf So my second purchase was this one I'm not so sure about this one My first listen was kinda difficult except for toward the end of the cd when my pain meds were starting to kick in and it started to sound pretty sublime This will definitely take repeat listens I'll try at least 2 more listens and if I still don't get it I'll cut it loose.
Maybe try one of his others. This album brings back some good memories. The CD plays well too. I can understand why some people can't really get into this whole album. Album) lot of it is really out there and doesn't vibe to beats you can really nod your head to. But I like strange, off-the-beaten-path music and this stuff certainly qualifies.
But the lyrics make me kind of uncomfortable - especially listening with my girlfriend. I don't know, sweetly singing "She makes me wanna die" is uncomfortably creepy to me. No one should be complaining that they can't understand the "Ghetto Youth;" neither can I, but I find the cant fascinating and I'm grateful to be exposed to something so alien to me. Finally, "Piano" has an ominous atmosphere. Tricky recites a staggered rap over what sounds like breathing machines pumping in rhythm to the spare piano chords.
Not for everyone, but it took me Album) few listens to digest the compellingly innovative sounds on this album.
Tricky's where it's at! One person found this helpful. I don't know what it is. I can't quite explain it. The songs are like a vaccum, they move through you and fill you with a void. It's the only album in my collection that presents a sort of hollow apathy towards the world as if it sees everything in some sort of half-sleep state where you'd only partially understand the world as you normally would.
I think this is Tricky's most important album, and the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is simply because you can't listen to it whenever you want to. The music is very abstract, and the voices and lyrics are usually garbled or spoken in a seemingly disjointed manner that doesn't really follow any clear method.
Thoughts and analysis ruin the album, and you have to listen to the voices and not the words being spoken. If you listen to it around lunch-time when you're wide-eyed awake and dilligently pursuing some errand in your day, you'll be thinking and moving too fast to get this.
The moon and stars have to be around when you hear this, and even then you have to be in a certain state of mind; you basically have to be in a mental place where you don't particularly care about anything.
Then, this album comes alive and engulfs your brain like cold black tar. It flows over you and through you, like some faceless phantom. It's hard to explain, this is a truly unique album. Despite how many times you listen to it or try to get into it, you'll never appreciate it until you hear it under the right circumstances.
The German-Jamaican by way of England's second LP takes his already sub-basement style and takes it down another level to the dungeons of anti-pop. The grooves on this record are disturbingly dark and downright frightening at times. The frantic drums and backward guitar loop that opens the album's first cut "Vent" get things going as Tricky growls in that asthma-and-weed tainted voice.
But on to the true highlights. One of the two best songs is "Tricky Kid. It also features one of the best lines I've heard in a long time This is a good album, but only if you're deeply into the dark side of music, and only if you can stand to listen to Tricky's half-sung, half-gutteral voice.
It can grate on you if you're not prepared for it. If you are, though, get this album. It's well worth the dough. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews.

Recommend if you like Massive Attack and modern soundtracks.
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Tricky at his best, good tunes, as good as Maxinquaye and has the lovely Martina T B with her gorgeous voice alongside, best combo in my opinion. Abbandonato il trip-hop consolatorio, Tricky abbraccia una dimensione ossessivamente torbida.

Tricky from my home town of Bristol is a great and unique producer. From Massive attacks start he has gone on to produce some amazing weird and trippy dark sounds. Be prepared though for major tripped out weirdness here. I think you will appreciate it if you like artists such as Bjork and Roots Manuva and are open minded but it is kaotic.
Some gems here but others are frankly just not much. Also Portishead and Smith and Mighty. Thats just me! For McCartney, the piece came to hold significance in his efforts to be recognised as the first Beatle to fully engage with the avant-garde, over a year before John Lennon recorded " Revolution 9 ". InMcCartney tried to release the track on the Beatles' Anthology 2 compilation, but its inclusion was vetoed by his former bandmates. The tape was confirmed by McCartney to be in his possession in As ofhe was still considering the track's release.
With their August album Revolverthe Beatles broke new ground in pop by departing from the genre's conventional notions of compositional form, instrumentation and engineering; in musicologist Walter Everett 's description, it was also "an innovative example of electronic music ". To Vaughan's surprise, McCartney agreed. There, Zinovieff played them an experimental composition "at such intense decibel frequencies", according to Edwards, "that many parts of my anatomy including internal organs began to perform an involuntary dance.
I can only describe it as 'ecstatic twitching'. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. They started the work after completing overdubs on the song " Penny Lane ". I've been asked to do this thing.
All I want you to do is just wander round all of the stuff and bang it, shout, play it. A large amount of reverb was applied to the instruments and to Lennon and McCartney's vocals. The two also recorded Native American war cries, whistling, close-miked gasping, genuine coughing and fragments of studio conversation.
Other overdubs to the song include bursts of guitar feedback, organ, piano and electronic feedback with Lennon shouting "Electricity! With reference to McCartney's credit on the poster for the rave, author Steve Turner says that as a "musical freak-out" by the four Beatles, "Carnival of Light" "wasn't so much 'composed' by Paul as initiated by him".
There is no melody, though snatches of Album) tune sometimes threaten to break through. The piece concludes with McCartney asking the studio engineer in an echo-soaked voice, "Can we hear it back now? We've got to get our teeth into something constructive.
Edwards said this was not intentional, but that he and Doug Binder had been busy with the rave's light show. In Hodgson's recollection, "Carnival of Light" was "all rather a mess Future Carnival - Millennium Light - Millennium Light (CD seemed to be no coherence to what was on the tape.
You know, where he thought he'd do something without words, that was very mysterious I don't think it was up to much. He had obviously improved a bit by the time Sgt. Pepper was made. Since"Carnival of Light" has only been heard by "Abbey Road insiders", according to author Mark Brend, and has not circulated on bootlegs.
Pepper period, it was Lennon who came to be identified as the band's revolutionary avant-gardist, through "Revolution 9" and other collaborations with Ono, including their album Two Virgins. InMcCartney attempted to include "Carnival of Light" on the Beatles' compilation album Anthology 2but was vetoed by Harrison, Starr and Ono as Lennon's widow on the grounds that the track was never intended for a Beatles release.
Lewisohn assisted the Beatles in compiling the Anthology project. It was something that was going to, potentially, spotlight only Paul in a good way and I don't know that was something they collectively wanted. It's just masses of echo. It sounds like they put it through twice. It was the same thing that everybody was doing at home.
In a interview with Ellen, reproduced on the Rocking Vicar website the following April,  McCartney said he was working on a photo collage film of the Beatles that was similar to another film he had created, Grateful Dead — A Photo Film He said he was planning to use "Carnival of Light" in the soundtrack. I like it because it's the Beatles free, going off-piste. Music journalist Michael Gallucci has described "Carnival of Light" as "the holy grail of lost Beatles recordings".
They were a pain in the arse, the pair of them In fact they all were. They were always trying to upstage each other. In a interview, McCartney stated that he was considering issuing unused Beatles recording takes and was still toying with the idea of releasing "Carnival of Light".
Pepper stereo remix for this release, commented that the track was considered for inclusion, but "it wasn't really part of Pepper It's a very different thing",  and that "'Carnival of Light' was never meant to be a record, in fact. It's one of those things that fans talk about But it was meant for the Roundhouse. According to Kenneth Womack : . From Wikipedia, the Future Carnival - Millennium Light - Millennium Light (CD encyclopedia.
For the Ride album, see Carnival of Light album. I said "all I want you to do is just wander around all the stuff, bang it, shout, Future Carnival - Millennium Light - Millennium Light (CD, play it, it doesn't need to make any sense. Hit a drum, then wander onto the piano, hit a few notes and just wander around. Barry Miles — a s London underground figure and one of the few people to have heard "Carnival of Light" — likened the track to " The Return of the Son of Monster Magnet " I was getting interested in avant garde things I never got known for being that way because John later superseded me, "Oh, it must have been John who was the Stockhausen freak.
