Tricky, “Council Estate” (Domino, 2008)

Dude, is that Tricky? The last time we saw the 1995 Mercury Prize winner, he was being berated by Gary Oldman during a hungover Saturday viewing of the TNT favorite The Fifth Element. Musically, his rasp has been absent. Until now, however, since he’s apparently on Domino now and issuing the oft-delayed Knowle West Boy this September in the US. “Council Estate” is the lead single, and it burbles to life midway through. Tricky might still have something gritty in his tank. — Johnny Loftus
