Juxtapose is the fourth album by Tricky, in collaboration with DJ Muggs and Grease (Ruff Ryders & DMX producer). Two tracks with DJ Muggs find their way to the only single "For Real" ("Pop Muzik," a cover of the song by M) and the Japanese release ("Who"). Martina Topley-Bird does not appear on the album; instead Kioka Williams provides the majority of the female vocals on the album and the following tours. The album also features a British emcee named Mad Dog on two tracks.
^Alternative Press (9/99, p.120) - 3 out of 5 - "...all over the place....most of [JUXTAPOSE] sounds like intuitive variations on the sonic organism he created.
^Q (9/99, p.110) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...JUXTAPOSE [proves] that this particular artistic fire remains stoked and that...he's gamely heading off into the territory of the individualist."
^Melody Maker (8/14/99, p.35) - 4 stars (out of 5) - "...this new album is the spliff-addled gutter-poet's finest moment to date. A shattered hip-hop dream. Bleakly comic, furiously romantic..."
^Muzik (9/99, p.74) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...An entirely uncomfortable listen, for sure. All the same, precisely the record we've all been willing Tricky to make for years."
^Spin (9/99, p.187) - 7 out of 10 - "...shows in sonic sonic choices unheard-of for this mansion haunter....Pretty groovy for what feels more like basement tapes than a proper LP..."
^NME (Magazine) (8/14/99, p.32) - 7 out of 10 - "...the churning murk has been replaced by some semblance of clarity, structure and melody....He's the Mark E Smith of washed-out industrial trip-hop, spewing garbled but sporadically brilliant verbage....There's plenty to enjoy here."
