Description

Following his debut 'Maxinquaye' was never going to be an easy task for Tricky - the record defined a sound and a generation, and took abstract, stoned hip hop into the UK charts and around the world in the mid-1990s - but 'Pre-Millennium Tension' managed that comfortably. Densely packed with Tricky's trademark choking, paranoid beats, intelligent scepticism and guttural rhyme technique, and boasting three successful singles, this album took the Bristolian to a far deeper, murkier level than his debut. So much so that Q Magazine dubbed 'Pre-Millennium Tension' one of the 50 'Heaviest Albums Of All Time'. Well-received by both fans and critics, and featuring long-time collaborator, the brilliant Martina Topley-Bird, 'Pre-Millennium Tension' is ripe for rediscovery. Contains the hit singles 'Christiansands', 'Makes Me Wanna Die' and 'Tricky Kid', three non-album B-Sides and two classic remixes. Packed with samples, from The Commodores and The Specials to Erik B and Doug E Fresh. Remastered, and replete with sleeve essay from Record Collector's Paul McGuinness.
