Like many of Tricky's albums, the songs on this album are results of collaborations with various artists, so it was no surprise that this has a more "street" feel to it, as opposed to Pre-Millennium Tension, which was surreal and dirty. Despite this, I think the album still bears Tricky's indelible stamp: His menace and growls still permeate the album and are used to great effect on songs like "For Real" and "Wash My Soul." Fans of PMT will enjoy songs like "Call Me" and "Scrappy Love" which have a more visceral and gutteral feel than the other songs. "Bom Bom Diggy" foreshadows the type of riffing that would appear on his next album "Blowback." It's got a great groove and rapping courtesy of Muggs, but it's more restrained than say "Girls" (from Blowback).
Overall, I'd say this is a great "rock" record in that Tricky succeeds in taking the styles of Muggs/Grease and blending them with his own mutant approach to music-making. That's what it is: a mutation. Fans of Maxinquaye and PMT may not enjoy Juxtapose, as it's not entirely innovative or groundbreaking, but it does offer good variations of the mutant rock that Tricky helped invent.

Having previously been unsuccessful, in his attempts to break into the Lucrative american market, teamed up with "Cypress Hill's"..."D.j. Muggs" (with the help of rapper "DMX's" producer "Grease"), to create a "Hip-hop" themed version of his Distinctive style of Brooding Electronica he's so famous for. Right off the bat...the down right Breathtaking "For Real" (a Scathing look at wannabe gangsters how watch "Too many gangster films", & people obsessed with "Record deals")...Tricky growlingly snarls "How Do you expect to become a Crime Family???...Your Profile's too Big!!!". This track stands out for being easily as good (if not better than any individual track Tricky has produced), and yet that isn't the whole of this consistently bleak album as "Contradictive" sees Tricky move into altogether more accessible songs with a male Vocal supplanting this kind of track that is usually reserved for his female vocalists, and against all the odds, ends up being some of Tricky's most distinguished work. But regardless of the praise heaped by me on this album, those new to Tricky (or only possessing one album) should probably steer clear...because as with "Angels with Dirty Faces" this is a tough, Difficult and initially unrewarding listen. But those that have most of Tricky's catalogue of Albums, will be entering into this with their eyes open, and expect the dramatic shifts from Downtempo, Trip-hop, Rap, Alternative Rock....and for these people, it'll take a while....but the brilliance of this album will unearth under (admittedly a fair few) listens.

Despite its relatively short length, this is top drawer Tricky, along with everything else pre MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. MAXINQUAYE must still be considered his best, but I reach for this album just as much. Tricky IS tricky, the way he manipulates beats and borrows lyrics and makes them his own. He's got some thumpin' help on board for this album, too.
"For Real" and "Contradictive" are different approaches for Tricky; a different kind of mellow with acoustic guitar and piano touches. Elsewhere, Tricky rocks as hard as anything from ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES and gets bugged-out trippy on the haunting "Wash My Soul" and "Scrappy Love." "I Like the Girls" contains an X-rated hyperspeed rap that is so wigged-out. Tricky, at this point at least, is still the master jester of head-trip music.

I am the first person to review 'Juxtapose' in 2002 and I hope the readers appreciate it. Especially those who haven't purchased 'Juxtapose' yet. As much as I like it, I wouldn't recommend it to people who are new to Tricky. Of course some rap lovers might say it's a great rap album, but then it'd be a damn wrong impression of who Tricky is.
For Tricky fans,though, it's a must-buy. Every Tricky album has something special in it, so does Juxtapose. The songs where Tricky's rapping alone are a beautiful experience and the Maddog collaborations only completes it. 'Scrappy Love', 'For Real', 'She Said' and 'Contradictive' are songs I like the best because they calm me down. You simply can't deny Tricky's brilliance and believe me, it's not absent on Juxtapose. The Maddog part in 'Bom Bom Diggy' makes the song even better. I don't mind if you don't like 'I Like The Girls' but 'Hot Like a Sauna' is just as good as 'Bom Bom Diggy'. The female singer spoils the song a bit and there's the weakest part in 'Juxtapose'. After listening to 'Blowback' I'd say Tricky hasn't found the appropriate descendant for Martina. I would recommend Nelly Furtado, she's got an impressive voice asking for perfect arrangements that Tricky has to offer. Listen to their collaboration 'The Harder They Come' on Paul Oakenfold's album Bunkka and you certainly won't disagree with me.
As a conclusion, Juxtapose is maybe not Tricky's finest album, but I still recommend it. I don't think Tricky is able to disappoint his true fans. And finally a question to those 'fans' who miss Tricky's trip-hop tunes and hate Juxtapose: Is that right that you're Tricky fans and not trip-hop's (a style that doesn't even exist)?
