  1. Sellout, you say? Think again: Tricky provides just enough wicked topspin to give his pop a loopy bounce. [13 July 2001, p.86]
  2. Tricky's most upbeat and accessible album ever, occasionally hinting at his noirish trip hop masterpiece, Maxinquaye.
  3. 90
    His most refined sound to date. [Jul 2001, p.80]

    Reception to this album was incredibly negative, and whilst I am not inciting an album of the year award, Blowback is still a mediocre experience. Evolution Revolution Love may well be Tricky's most catchy single, but this eclectic mix is too much of a compilation tape than a listenable album. Full Review »
