For the most part, Quixotic sees Topley-Bird straddling tasteful chillout vibes with patches of soul, blues, and rock thrown in for good measure. The far too short "Intro" is the deepest excursion into Topley-Bird's blues jones, and if it were just another minute longer, it would be worth the price of admission on its own.
Topley-Bird's eagerness to distance herself from the billowing dope smoke of those early Tricky benchmarks is evident within Quixotic's first two minutes. We're eased in via "Intro"- a swinging a cappella track that's more O Brother than Pre-Millennium- before Josh Homme and Mark Lanegan show up to draw some lumbering stoner guitar shapes on the diluted rock exercise "Need One". With its shadowy melody and lovely key change, "Anything" is by no stretch a terrible song, but it's difficult to listen to without feeling like you've heard it before. Soul Food", with its warm Rhodes keyboards, library music string pieces and old soul accoutrements, is arguably even more derivative, yet thanks to its rolling arrangements and Topley-Bird's gloriously unhurried delivery, it's handily the album's standout track. Things get patchier from here on out.

Martina Topley Bird: Quixotic. Topley Bird's voice is honeyed, gritty and utterly distinctive, and few of the songs here do it justice - least of all Too Tough to Die, an otherwise thrilling sample-laden dance track by David Holmes that has her stomping and snarling. The tracks that impress most are pared-back and eerie: Ilya (part-produced by Tricky), which shimmers and glides like a pool of mercury, and Lullaby, a hypnotic heat haze of floating, almost dissonant guitar. On both, Topley Bird's voice is girlish and aged, sweet and wicked, languid and dripping power
