Standout Track(s): Down in the Willow Garden
No, it’s not a top ten album, and Tricky has had a rough decade, both in critical acclaim terms and in other ways, but it’s worth a listen, dammit. I saw him in Philadelphia a few years back when he was touring on Knowles West Boy and it really made me reconsider the value of Blowback. “You Don’t Wanna” was excellent live. Must be something about the live experience–he only sang every other song, smoking new joints in between. My brother and I actually got to say hi to him when he was smoking out front of the venue before the show.
Another thing that made me think twice about Blowback: in 2009, I caught this Steve McQueen installation of Girls, Tricky, 2001 at the Art Institute of Chicago. I’ve tried to find a youtube or something of it since but to no avail. It was just a 15 minute super close up film of Tricky in a dark studio recording his track for “Girls” intensely. Really awesome. I think I sat there for 30 minutes. WHY DID HE THINK ANTHONY KIEDIS WOULD IMPROVE THIS!
