Vin, do yourself a favor and try something different. Go and get Thievery Corporation's Mirror Conspiracy and Zero 7's Simple Things. Melodic, versatile trip-hop with some incredible female vocals. It's not much of a departure from what you've been recommending to me.

Thanks, BTW for pointing out Rabbit Fur Coat to me, I went on a road trip recently and cemented my love for that album.

I love both those albums.

Zero 7 is very good...I am just getting into Thievery Corp. and have to let it sink in a bit more...

I'm a huge fan of trip-hop. Massive Attack, Portishead, Thievery Corporation, Esthero, Zero 7, Air, Goldfrapp, Gotan Project are some of my favorites.

No Protection is an all-time classic album IMO.

It's hard to fuck with Mezzanine. Do you like Tricky, Leif? Maxinquaye was a great album. Martina's solo album also blew it up.

I loved the first three Tricky albums (Maxinquaye, Pre-Millenial Tension, and Angels w/ Dirty Faces) as well as the one he put out as Nearly God around the same time.

When Blowback or whatever it was came out, I was so horrified by it I quit him cold turkey and have heard nothing in the reviews of efforts since then that would make me think he's regained his form. Does anyone like his post-Angels stuff and would care to defend it?

I have enjoyed the more recent Massive Attack stuff, though I still think the earlier ones were the best.

Vulnerable was a good album, although he really worked better with Martina Topley-Bird on Maxinquaye. He kind of went back to that same formula, and the results weren't half bad. Love Cats, What is Wrong and Search, Search Survive were good examples of this. Juxtapose also had it's moments(Contradictive, For Real), but Maxinquaye was just so good all the way through, he hasn't been able to make a complete album that can stand up to it. You need to pick and choose tracks from his later albums.

As for Massive Attack, Blue Lines, Protection and Mezzanine are just classics. As for their newer stuff, I love the remix of Butterfly Caught on the Chillout 04 album. If you haven't heard it, you gotta get it. The whole album is worthwhile, but that track just shines.

BTW, Martina's solo album, Anything is worth a listen. She teams up with Tricky again on Ragga, which is the second track on the album. She also makes an appearance on Demon Days in All Alone. I think she was a huge part of Maxinquaye's success. Her lyrics on Ponderosa are just killer.

I pretty much like all their stuff.
