“an album that dazzles and never disappoints”

“an urgency runs throughout the record like a pumping vein, presenting us with a man who feels vital again.”

“Tricky is looking upon the signifiers of his childhood – dole queues, council housing, social decay – with a sense of pride and longing. Absence, in this case, clearly makes the art grow fonder.”
