List Rules Studio albums only by Tricky, including collaborations with other artists

Tricky is considered by many to be one of the best trip hop artists, though he's an established producer as well. This is a fan-voted list of the best Tricky albums, including pictures of the album covers. This Tricky discography is ranked from best to worst, so the top Tricky albums can be found at the top of the list as they grow in votes. You won't find any Tricky singles, EPs, or compilations, so everything you see here should only be studio albums. If you think the greatest Tricky album isn't high enough on the list, then be sure to vote for it so it receives the credit it deserves. Many critics feel that Tricky peaked with his early mid-90s releases Maxinquae and Pre-Millenium Tension with Martine Topely-Bird on vocals, but some fans feel differently and prefer his work with Hawkman or his more hip-hop sounding albums.

If you want to know, "What is the Best Tricky album of all time?" or "What are the top Tricky albums?" then this list will answer your questions. The English trip-hop artist got his start back in 1985 and has had quite a successful career, with a certified gold album, and silver, in the UK—not to mention some hit singles.
