Taken from debut album, 'Maxinquaye', and a comprehensively reimagined cover of the Public Enemy song "Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos', 'Black Steel' is another highlight from that groundbreaking debut album.

Unavailable on YouTube until now, this is the official video from the 1995 release.

Reviews of new album, 'False Idols' draw a connection with the highlights of Tricky's career to date and the material on 'Maxinquaye' in particular.

"False Idols is a sterling return to the form of Maxinquaye, full of sinister, infectious grooves of strings and sparse piano lines with his trademark mumble hiding behind the soulful lead vocals of female frontpersons... throughout, there's a fresh impetus to Tricky's musical muse that enables his dark imaginings to connect again with beautiful simplicity." The Independent 4/5

"Tricky's 10th album is a welcome return to the menacing sound of Maxinquaye. 'I'm Ready', on which that familiar sprechgesang delivery is somehow both metronomic and distended, is exemplary, but the whole record -- dosed with menace -- sounds hungry." The Guardian 4/5

"It's fantastic, filled with enough smoky seduction and downtempo grooves to fuel '90s-themed key parties. Come to think of it, it should satisfy old-school Massive Attack fans more than the last couple of Massive Attack LPs" Time Out

"His best since the untouchable Maxinquaye, False Idols confidently returns to a simpler, yet contemporary version of Tricky's working formula." MusicOMH

"That's what False Idols represents. Tricky is a hip cat again. The great thing here, though, is he did it the old fashioned way: he just put out a great fucking record. False Idols is a massive triumph musically. There is no filler, in many places it sounds timeless. We're a third through 2013, but I'd be shocked if this record is surpassed by many at year's end." Pop Matters 8/10
