Just listened to that album again for the first time in about three years. It immediately got me again. A timeless masterpiece that deservedly entered several alltime-best-album-charts. The genre it defined (trip hop) is more or less dead by now, but Blue Lines survived. None of the protagonists (Massive Attack, Tricky, Shara Nelson) managed to reach this level of perfection ever again.

Someone wrote a whole book about John Coltranes "Love Surpreme". I wouldn't be surprised if on day there is a book about Blue Lines.

Probably the best, certainly the most important , album of the decade, Blue Lines defined the sound of Britain´s carcass after Thatcher had finished with it. Blue Lines was the first representation of a certain kind of syncretic Britishness that would define the island´s music for the next decade.
