the resemblance to ‘maxinquaye’s murky, beat laden atmosphere is undeniable, though the material here is gentler & more mature.

‘somebody’s sins’ sees tricky & vocalist francesca belmonte whispering “jesus died for somebody’s sins, but not mine”, taken from patti smith’s version of ‘gloria’, over a sparse groaning bass. the lead single ‘parenthesis’, which features vocals from peter silberman of the antlers, has more rhythmic grunt, which gives a different dimension to the dark gothic atmosphere that pervades the record. no-one does this kind of thing better. many of the songs feature artists signed to tricky’s new label, including belmonte & fifi rong. the album also includes collaborations with nigeria's nneka. deluxe edition includes bonus trick remix of ‘does it’.
