Tricky-Angels With Dirty Faces

Label: UMR/Island
Format: 2LP Coloured

“Angels With Dirty Faces is a haunting album from a tortured soul. Unrelenting… oddly enough it’s a beautiful album” PITCHFORK (8.2/10) “Tricky has been redefining his rhythms, adding skittering jungle loops and hardcore hip-hop beats to his trademark dub-warped trip-hop. On top of that, he’s expanding his sonic palette, adding cheap synthesizers and avant-garde guitarists to create a nightmarish junk-pile of hip-hop, dub, electronica, rock, and gospel” ALLMUSIC“A renegade Brit B-boy’s caustic, lyrical declaration of self…. trip-hop’s mongrel daddy found his hip-hop soul” ROLLING STONE Tricky’s 2nd most sought-after vinyl LP, repressed for the first time, exclusively on orange coloured vinyl. The 2LP includes 2 tracks not included on the original CD release: Peyote Sings + Taxi. Martina Topley-Bird is once again on vocal duties but also featured are English singer-songwriter PJ Harvey (on “Broken Homes”), Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian (on “Carriage for Two”) plus Marc Ribot adds his twisted guitar lines to a number of tracks. Continuing Tricky’s penchant for covering hip-hop tracks ‘Angels…’ features a cover of Slick Rick’s “The Moment I Feared”. A success across Europe, in AUS and NZ, it also sold over 100,000 units in the USA.
