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.
