Comments: Stellar guest vocals from Francesca Belmonte & Fifi Rong. Tricky is at his best when he has a female foil to play off. 4-Bonnie & Clyde is a perfect example of male/female call & response, harmonies and dissonance. Nods to his (arguably) last great album, Pre-Millenium Tension (1996) on 6-Nothing’s Changed, which picks up where “Makes Me Wanna Die” (from PMT) left off.
In a nutshell: Some will call it a return to form, but it’s hard to dispute that this is the most cohesive album that he’s put out in a decade.
