Angel is definitely one of the very best tunes out there. It constantly plays in my head!

Absolutely classic album by massive attack. This album is voted one of the most sensual/sexual/love making albums of the past two decades. Great production, reminds me of a neo noir film or opium den soundtrack. If you like this, listen to 100th window, the album after this.

I still can't believe how fresh "Mezzanine" is, nine years after its release. As much as I love "Blue Lines" and "Protection", neither of them is nearly half as perfect as this one. An essential mix of distorted guitars, deep basses, massive percussion and haunting, oniric samples. The atmosphere is so dark and hazy, that one almost feels it physically. Like slow descent into quicksands... What more can I say? "Mezzanine" remains a pure MASTERPIECE, simply a must-have.

Perhaps it's just that I like things I'm more familiar with but I always seem to prefer the earlier work of any given artist. One of very few exceptions to this rule is this, Massive Attack's third album. Sure, there are loads of classic tracks on its predecessors, <i>Blue Lines</i> and <i>Protection</i>, but to my mind these LP's can't compete with the superbly moody atmosphere that pervades <i>Mezzanine</i>. Big brooding basslines, heavy dub percussion, thrashy guitar and impassioned vocals are all fused here to very great effect. The group's next album, <i>100th Window</i>, is good and treads similar territory but ultimately comes across as a watered-down and less powerful version of this masterpiece.
