This album is pretty solid, it sounds like if Spawn made some crazy hip hop demos

Jezuz wept this is so poor!...
So let's get this right...
Tricky has the all time chance of a life time to have something dope produced by the almighty R-R-R-ZAAA...
And what happens?
Good question!
What exactly did happen?
Well from the end results..
Nothing what so ever!
Tricky uses a classic sample from fellow Bristolian's Portishead..
Meaning he could not be bothered to hook up a decent sample on his own!
Then he mumbles a right load of waffle!
Maxinquaye sings a few little nothings.
And even Rza etc sound limp.
Think of how many people would have been waiting in the queue to work with Rza???
Many many many many!
Such a waste of precious studio time......
Shame...Big shame! ;(

Completist's note: This is the only release on which to find these non-LP tracks on black vinyl (aside from any test pressings).

This CD single came in a Digipak, with either a standard black disc tray or, more rarer, a red one.

Hell Is Round The Corner uses the same Isaac Hayes sample as fellow Bristolians Portishead used on Glory Box, whilst the b-side features Wu-Tang super-producer RZA at the height of his talent with his Gravediggaz side project. Quite a coup for Tricky as most people in hip-hop circles in the UK had written off trip-hop as a 'bastard child of hip-hop' and the sound hadn't had much impact in the US. The two b-side cuts, not available anywhere else, are the perfect blend between Tricky's trip-hop sound and the Gravediggaz horror-core style.
