5.0 out of 5 stars Not quite but Nearly God May 29 2002
By MUSIC LOVER - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm a fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and got introduced to the world of Tricky with 'Blowback' 2001. I wanted to hear more and bought 'Maxinquaye' and 'Pre-Millenium Tension'. With Maxinquaye
being the masterwork and PMT the follow-up, I was attracted by the pseudonym Nearly God. I was sure that it'd be worth the money
First I didn't get into a couple of songs like Tattoo or Keep Your Mouth Shut but after the 2nd listen the whole CD turned into
pure enjoyment. And if you liked Martina on 'Maxinquaye', you'll definitely like this. 'Poems' is one of the most sensitive songs ever written, first there's Tricky's spoken rap, acoustic guitar in between, Terry Hall's singing brings it to the climax and then
comes...Martina. You count every line she sings, you wish she'll never stop and when she's gone, sad feelings overcome you as if
they were real.Switch over to 'Black Coffee'.
Also the guest singers did a good job here. Terry Hall on 'Poems'
and 'Bubbles', Björk is as good as ever but Neneh Cherry doesn't fit to the atmosphere of this beautiful and dark album. Some of the best music I've ever heard, and probably you after you read my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Blatant Truth about Tricky's Music! Jan. 10 2003
By Arish - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a masterpiece !
This cd illustrates Tricky's full trip hop ability. All the songs all have the same mood and nothing is out of place. Bjork is featured on this cd along with Martina(His X Girlfriend). The music is classic and the stand out track is a Creepy masterpiece called "Poems". Which I believe "Broken Homes" on "Angels with Dirty Faces" was crafted after. Tricky is on a slow path to destruction, His 1st three efforts were really great this includes Maxinqueye, Nearly God, Pre millennium Tension. After these three efforts the split between Tricky and his girlfriend Martina really made a difference. You can tell that her voice was a huge motivation in his music. With the abscence of her voice you can tell that the creativity just wasn't there. Tricky isn't a singer and with out a female voice over his voice,it lacks alot. His new effort "BlowBack" is completley crap, it is basically a attempt at rock music because he is bullheaded and just can't except the fact he can't sing. "Ruff Guide" which is supposidly a Greatest Hits that will give you a basic outline of Tricky's career. And if you compare the notes with each song you will see the difference in the material. "Angels with Dirty Faces" only hints at the magic that Tricky and Martina once had. "Broken Homes" is the masterpiece on that cd, and that is it. But anyway I hope this review has been extremley helpful to someone. Because Lord knows! I quit purchasing Tricky after I bought Juxtapose and got a rude awakening. Tricky his know longer on the right path, Hopefully someone can convince him to get another female vocalist and do the creepy, Haunting creative abtract beats that made him Famous!
1. Maxinqueye *****
2. Nearly God *****
3. Pre Millenium Tension *** 1/2
4. Angels with Dirty Faces **
5. Juxtapose *
6. Blowback (-*)
7. Ruff Guide ****
8. Grass roots ep **
(I hope this is helpful to anyone out there)

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nearly perfect... May 27 2003
By Andrew J. Jennings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok, Nearly God is something I bought without consciously knowing I was looking for it. I found it in a used store ... and figured I'd give it a try. Well, let me tell you, NOW I'm hooked.
At first listen, you might not like it because it's not your typical techno trancy stuff. The trick is, you have to listen to it numerous times to truly appreciate the album. It is genuinely worth the effort, though. I'll tell u why.
Some of the best tracks on this record are "Poems", which will turn you on in no time flat. "Make a Change" is also very meditative. Even "Keep Your Mouth Shut", with its slight hip-hop intro will blow your ...world, friend:)
I only give it 4 stars because, while the record is truly amazing, it is hard to play it the whole way through. I'm telling you, though, purchase this album because it's really good and you will find youself repeating certain tracks over and over again. If u are looking for a dope experience without the marijuana, then go to ur nearest record store, buy the cd and play it with some fine wine and a good friend (and make amazing love):)

5.0 out of 5 stars It is the original primal essence of "Tricky" Nov. 13 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is like touching the hand of old friend, it leads you down a road where you slip into some kind of funky-wonderful. The blend is nearly perfect, beacuse it mixes the pungent flavor of old jazz tunes with down right blusey moods and stereophonic bouquets of wonderful artists. I felt a bit '80's nostalgic hearing Neneh Cherry and Allison Moyet, just to name a few. Tricky seems to bring the best out of everyone featured on the CD. I would like to see this expression explored more. I miss the part of him that taps into the endearing nature of primal exotica. It is a CD that is well worth the listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars moody , contemplative and, of course, trippy Nov. 12 2002
By "richlatta" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Nearly God is technically a collective of artists, but Tricky is clearly in the driver's seat. Some of these songs are rather gloomy while others are more carefree. I've been told this is a great album to meditate to and I believe it. Especially with the mesmerizing "Poems." Also "Tattoo" is a deeply atmospheric track and I was thrilled to find out that it was written by one of my favorite groups - Siouxsie and the Banshees. Bjork and Tricky make an intriguing vocal duo, especially on "Keep Your Mouth Shut" which sounds like a dungeon until the opiate-haze interlude sung by Bjork. It's quite disconcerting when a brutal segment from a rap song cuts through the song, yet effective. Nearly God contains many strange sounds and great vocal performances. This is essential chill-out Tricky.
