Album artwork for Pre-Millennium Tension - Expanded Edition by Tricky

Remastered sophomore release from trip-hop legend and Massive Attack co-founder. Follow up to the classic 'Maxinquaye' (UK Top 5). Contains the hit singles 'Christiansands', 'Makes Me Wanna Die' and 'Tricky Kid', three non-album B- Sides and two classic remixes. Packed with samples, from The Commodores and The Specials to Erik B and Doug E Fresh. 'Piano' remixed by A Guy Called Gerald. Sleevenotes by Paul McGuinness (Record Collector). Following his debut 'Maxinquaye' was never going to be an easy task for Tricky - the record defined a sound and a generation, and took abstract, stoned hip hop into the UK charts and around the world in the mid- 1990s - but 'Pre-Millennium Tension' managed that comfortably. Densely packed with Tricky's trademark choking, paranoid beats, intelligent scepticism and guttural rhyme technique, and boasting three successful singles, this album took the Bristolian to a far deeper, murkier level than his debut. So much so that Q Magazine dubbed 'Pre-Millennium Tension' one of the 50 'Heaviest Albums Of All Time'. Well-received by both fans and critics, and featuring long-time collaborator, the brilliant Martina Topley- Bird, 'Pre-Millennium Tension' is ripe for rediscovery. Remastered, and replete with sleeve essay from Record Collector's Paul McGuinness.
