'Calling it ADRIAN THAWS is saying you don't really know me,' says Tricky, explaining the title of his eleventh album. 'So many times people have tried to put a finger on me and every album I go to a different place.' 'I suppose this is my club/hip hop album,' he says. 'I'm not known for doing club music but this album has some club tracks on it - well, what I would consider club music.' It's typical of one of music's most unpredictable characters that the first album to bear his birth name is one of his least introspective. ADRIAN THAWS is a vivid, attention-grabbing set of songs which roam from hip hop to house, jazz to blues, rock to reggae.
