What a great idea, have a limited edition sold through only one website for £20 which all gets bought up immediately and see them all pop up immediately after with ludicrous prices (100-200 quid!). How about a normal priced edition without some fancy package for those of us who WOULD like the music?

Massive Attack is back with a dream line up the likes of which 'Them Crooked Vultures' could only hope to aspire, A who's who of contemporary musicians, and several of my personal favorites.

Track one with Damon Albarn (blur, gorrillas) Track two with 'Tunde Adebimpe' of Tv On The Radio fame. Track three remixed by non-other-than 'The Subliminal Kid', no longer a kid, but very much a stalwart of the downtempo scene, and Track five, unbelievably, with the marvelous 'Martina Topley-Bird' (the female voice from most of Trickys notable work, with an awesome solo album of her own.)

For those of us who consider the acts' 1998 mercury prize nominated, #1, platinum selling album the height of Massive Attacks artistry, this four Track EP is their most satisfying release to date. It is the slow and simple effectiveness that hypnotized us in 1998, the laid back, low mixed vocals that balance music and prose is such tandem that every note, every word, hangs on the ear, dripping slowly into the brain, with bass and polyrhythms so delicately layered it would take a microscope to discern their individuality. In my educated opinion: Splitting the Atom sits proudly next to Mezzanine as Massive attacks finest releases. As To the lucky 999 fans that share with me the fine distinction of owning the rare and wonderful physical release: kudos. Vinyl well bought.
