Now this is the real TRICKY
Author Brian Wallace (Mind Transmis | 07/06/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have no idea why so many people dislike it for this is no doubt his best. Maxinquaye was great but maybe a bit too eclectic and it actually owed very much to Martina, Pre-millenium tension suffered from over-the-top self-indulgent lyrics and actually didn't come out very well. This is the only Tricky's album i can listen to from the beginning to the end. The sound is outstanding. It features live musicians, awesome funky beats and has a great feel of urban paranoia to it. Don't believe the bad reviews and get this right now!!!"
Lastingly enjoyable work

"a powerful, driving and spirited album that takes the listener into a million interesting, pleasurable and challenging dimensions. This artist has prided himself on breaking new ground with every release. What he achieves - whether he was conscious of this at the time of creation, or not - is music that is lasting. You can dive into this auditory blissful realm years after the fact and still be perfectly blown away.

Vision, craftsmanship and great effort have sustained this miraculous artist in moving beyond, and remaining away, from any semblance of competition.

This is a classic.

"There is an appealing and intriguing grit emanating from these misunderstood paranoid soundscapes to mark AWDF as Tricky's last artistic achievement, but the intoxicating spell it once wove has mostly worn off while all the egotistical rantings remain."
