    Great Album, better than Knowle West in my opinion, Wish he would sing more but as an artist he knows how he wants his music to shine so gotta respect it, b.c i'm sure as hell enjoying it....

    Ouch! After getting back on track with 'Knowle West Boy' Tricky missteps so badly that he produces his worst album yet. Barring, Murder Weapon, Ghetto Stars and Hakim, the rest is so lazily constructed and weak that it serves as a reminder that Tricky should have stopped floundering with what material or direction to go and follow a set route. This album only disappoints.

  1. The thematic attack here is pretty surgical, cutting most of the time to the gangsta life he's so glad he sidestepped as a youth. The individual pieces are well-defined by his muzzy standards.

    It might be difficult to differentiate after nine full-lengths, but Mixed Race may be the least engaging album we've heard from Tricky to date.
  3. while there are moments when his old jaggedness cuts through--the scraping "Early Bird" brings Tom Waits to mind, while "Ghetto Stars" has an eerie keening quality suggestive of industrial screech--Mixed Race is long on half-digested detours.
