    Not nearly as horrific as people will lead you to believe. The new female sultry vocals and Tricky's wish to go mainstream again end up half recreating the Maxinquaye magic, but the music and simplistic song structures make this a repetitive experience. 'Car Crash' is the standout.

  1. The year-round sunshine [of new home L.A.] seems to have induced creative lethargy, sapping the adventure that elevated his last album. [Jun 2003, p.106]

    The album bristles with a new urgency. [Sep 2003, p.100]
  3. Vulnerable is Tricky's most accessible album since Maxinquaye, but it has neither that album's shock of the new nor its enduring appeal.
