A classic, essential trip hop record that helped shape electronic and modern music the way we know it today. Tricky's debut album is a perfect blend of rock, hip-hop, electronic, reggae and many other genres. Many of it's qualities are due to Tricky's intense artistic streak in the early 90s when a majority of Massive Attack's critically acclaimed works began to show up, backed for his inovative and emblematic songwriting and producing skills.
Maxinquaye is a must for every music fan.
