'Maxinquaye' remains one of the most groundbreaking records in British music history. Upon its release in 1995, it was met with resounding critical acclaim receiving near perfect scores from music critics across the board – Melody Maker deemed it "gripping, original, sublime", NME said the record was "… unprecedented, spellbinding and revealed something new with every listen", Q Magazine"… Tricky proves himself to be more challenging and eclectic than his peers", Pitchfork "An unrepeatable record so unbelievably wrong it could only be right"… even David Bowie took it upon himself to write a letter to Tricky in the August of 1995 proclaiming "I've loved Maxinquaye for some time". In more recent times The New York Times and Guardian have respectively said of it  "… [an] album-length masterpiece" and "Time has not dimmed the impact of this extraordinary record".
 
In its year of release, NME, Melody Maker and The Wire all named it their album of the year and it was nominated for a Mercury Prize (losing out to Portishead's 'Dummy'). It continues to be cited for its impact on music being a mainstay of "Greatest Albums Of All Time" lists such as NME's 2013 list of the 500 greatest albums, Uncut Magazine's 2016 200 Greatest Albums, Q Magazine's 100 Greatest British albums, Mojo's 100 Modern Classics, Rolling Stone's 'Essential Recordings of the 90s' to name but a few.
 
Celebrating Maxinquaye as it approaches its 30th Anniversary (2024) the Reincarnated 3LP package is a welcome reappraisal of this seminal album containing the original album remastered at Abbey Road Studios, 6 new reincarnated versions of tracks recorded by Tricky in 2022, previously unreleased BBC session tracks recorded with full live band in 1995 along with rough monitor mixes. 
 
The album has brand new artwork featuring the only known photograph of Tricky with his late mother, of whom this album is named after. The image was recently discovered by his cousin.
 
"An unrepeatable record so unbelievably wrong it could only be right. Maxinquaye is a work of beautiful disorder" Pitchfork (9.3) 
 
"Time has not dimmed the impact of this extraordinary record" The Guardian (5/5)
