  • Knowle West Boy is the album that sums up everything that Tricky has accomplished since his 1995 Maxinquaye debut. From the sardonic bar-room blues of Puppy Toy to the haunting quasi-classicism of Joseph from the twisted Specials-worshipping punk of Council Estate to the bereft torchery of Past Mistake, from the Roxy Music's The Bogus Man-at-the-dancehall art-stomp of Bacative to the poignant autobiographical tale of teen pregnancy that is School Gates, Knowle West Boy sees our misunderstood hero reaching into the post-punk, Two-Tone, reggae, hip hop and pure pop he grew up adoring, twisting it all into surreal Tricky shapes using his astonishingly accomplished band and a host of great undiscovered singers, and ending up with the most varied and accessible set of his career

Kmowle west boy! Back to your roots! You know i had a bit missing as i left my roots, too! Listening to "council estate" had a wonderful effect!!! You know, like citizen kane (gotta be careful). Got to know who you are in this life!

I listened to the whole album today for the first time, came in the post yesterday! It's beautiful. You are beautiful!!!

Your music is a very substantial influence upon my own art! "Poems" changed my whole art life, i mean that with all sincerity!
We enter a time where the art world is once again enjoying watching performer season and mature in their art! It has been so cool watching you go from strength to strength! Go rock america, mate!
With great bro love!
Michael clay.

 Fantastic!!! My Top Albums for the year

If you feel like every song you hear on the on the radio sonunds the same & are looking for something new then this is it. Knowle west is not the greatest album Tricky has ever made but certainley shades of it. This is the most mainstream album from him yet & the best album out at the moment. A must buy record. Can't wait to see him live.
