Not yet reviewed.

Less experimentally brash than his more recent release, Tricky's debut CD 'Maxinquaye' is actually a better introduction to the British hip-hopper turned international trip-hopper than his later work.

The dozen smoldering, moonlit tracks are less concerned with loopy aural exaggeration than they are with showcasing Tricky's slow-mo rap and singer Martine's sexy soprano. With the exception of the stellar "Pumpkin," (featuring vox from Alison Goldfrapp), the duo mix a colorful palate of rhythmic vocals, throbbing backbeats and gravelly electronic textures. Toss in large doses of sexual innuendo and 'Maxinquaye' becomes a libidinous foray into languor and lust.
