57 Minutes and sounds pretty good, so it's a kind of a wonder... I have some clicks at the end of B side.
That album is so good, I bought it on CD 20 years ago, I bought it on vinyl and would love to give it a try on a double vinyl.
That would be the definitive pressing...

5-stars.

Tricky has two 5-star albums in my book: this one and Nearly God. It's a shame his later work got a little too self-indulgent with too much guest-vocalitis. Maxinquaye is so lush, it has a pretty-garden feel that other trip-hop doesn't quite have. It all flows nicely, tho' Black Steel is the undoubted highlight. Having Martina sing it ("Nevertheless they cannot understand that I'm a black man, and I could never be a veteran") was a touch of subversive genius, elevating a political anthem to something artistically beautiful.

Ratings guide:
5-stars: outstanding, never gets old, best of the best.
4-stars: very good with plenty highlights, tho' some weaknesses here and there.
3-stars: worth checking out but with reservations.
2-stars: not recommended. Might have potential, it's just not much good.
1-star : everything is skippable, worst of the worst.

Totally quiet, perfect pressing, but a bit thin-sounding. I would say that on the first side, at least, the 1995 sounds warmer, more bassy, and Martina's voice is more centered. The soundstage is narrower for sure on the 2018, though the 2018 is not a disaster, by any means.

Sounds amazing! Clean flat pressing. Dynamic with a nice sound stage. It has a full, warm, rich and expansive sound. This one was done right!

Perfect pressing, dead quiet as tobester already mentioned. Same volume level as OG. Also cover and innersleeve very well reproduced. Great reissue.

How does this pressing compare to the 2012 MOV reissue? Can anyone compare?

Really nice, and much needed, repress of this classic album. This and Pre-Millennium Tension sound better than ever, tbh.

This album would be much better if it weren't for Martina's voice. Otherwise, a really solid album.

I've never heard the OP but this is another gem from MOV! If you were thinking of picking this up I would recommend it.
