Trick may well be his masterpiece, combining all the elements that have made him such an enduring and much-loved musician over the years to create a genre-bending classic.

The Line of Best Fit
A record that gleefully skips through genres without ever missing a beat, Jamie T’s fourth effort is a genuinely magnificent album that surpasses anything else in his discography with consummate ease. He simply hasn’t missed a trick.

A return-to-roots record that works most successfully when it rebels against itself, Jamie T's vision of revelation isn't something to be easily shrugged off.

Drowned in Sound

Trick is comfortably Jamie T’s best album so far, showing off every element he can and touching many bases without ever feeling like the contrast is jarring.

Jamie T.'s fourth long-player is a return to the infectious and rebellious spirit of his first two records. Trick is also his best work to date.

Gostei muito mais desse disco na primeira vez que ouvi, mas não deixa de ser um trabalho bem interessante. Jamie T passeia pelo rock alternativo e punk rock com uma produção bem audaciosa, com beats bem pesadas e tensas em algumas músicas, além de loops eletrônicos típicos do hip hop em outros momentos, acrescentando muita potencia a esses ganchos típicos do rock.
