Tricky's solo debut, Maxinquaye, is classic trip hop. Indeed, from what I've read, it's one of the seminal works of the genre. I was a little surprised that Tricky did not play a more prominent role in the vocal mix. That being said, Martine Topley-Bird's cool, detached vocals work perfectly with the music. Alison Goldfrapp also makes a nice contribution on "Pumpkin." The last four songs are not as strong as the first eight. Still, this is a really good album - especially if you like Massive Attack and Portishead.
