Solidified for my respect for Tricky

I have pre-millennium tension, and have since it's release, but that's the only album by Tricky that I've ever owned. This is do to my love of a few tracks on the record only. When I skilled mechanics for pre-order though I said, "hey why not," and purchased it. I'm glad I did because not only is virtually every track on this album great but I also like tracks on pre-millennium that I couldn't necessarily get into before. I'm going to start going through the rest of his catalogue now as well.

Here We Go Again...

This album is super dope. Skilled Mechanics is more in the spirit of his earlier albums and not as experimental as his albums of the past decade have been... Some tracks on here sound like they could have been unreleased tracks from back in the Pre Millennium Tension or Maxinquaye days of the mid 90's... The songs Boy, Bother and How's Your Life are amazingly simple and incredibly tight in signature old school Tricky style, reminding us why the trip hop term/label/style/genre was created and used to describe his music (Massive Attack as well.) I've loved all his work over the years and this album just made me fall in love with his music all over again...
