CRITIC REVIEWS

85
Northern Transmissions

His sense of artistic freedom is utterly refreshing on this record as he brings out a few of his best tracks in years. While tracks are individually strong for most of the record, there’s a definite lack of cohesion on the whole that will make listens jarring at times.

80
The Observer
Throughout, Tricky creates a claustrophobic world full of stark bass lines, pop digressions and slinky Bristol moments; his duet with Francesca Belmonte, New Stole, is particularly moreish.
70
Under The Radar

Ununiform finds Tricky blending his Guyanese influences together with R&B, reggae, house, and Russian hip-hop, creating an experience that transcends most contemporary listening experiences.

70
The Line of Best Fit

There's no question that this is art. But not all art is meant to be appreciated, nor is it necessarily accessible. If nowhere else, Ununiform definitely belongs in that latter category.

60
PopMatters

While it’s a long way from the heights he once reached, ununiform carries more promise than Tricky has shown in some time.

51
Pitchfork

On his 13th studio album, Tricky translates newfound contentment into songs that fail to live up to the risk-taking example of his early work.

Exclaim!

Ununiform is an uneven album at best, showing that Tricky isn't bereft of ideas but was lacking the fire to properly flesh them out.

No matter how hard you try to discover traces of life in this album that hardly breathes, you will be amazed by the fact that there simply aren't!
