Massive Attack

Massive Attack

Collaborative british music production duo from Bristol, UK. During the 1991 Gulf War the group name was shown on some releases as 'Massive' in order to maintain airplay after pressure from the British Government on radio programmers. The group did not actually change their name.

One of a kind band, some might find it surprising how far they've come from their Wild Bunch hip-hop days.

Great duo. Love listening to their Mezzanine album!

Blue lines and protection are by far the best two real albums for me..
Their later product goes into a wash of melancholy and slo mo beats that would put the best ears to sleep..
First two albums have an energy that was present at that time..A cross culture of Hip Hop,,dance,,raga,,reggae,,industrial...Real beats,,killer sampling and not too polished of a sound that today's product seems to overflow with....Vocalists on their first two are brilliant,,,Portisheads vocalist appeared on their second album as well didn't she Manchester ?

I'm astounded that nobody has left a comment about these innovators of dance music. They created one of the greatest albums in any genre, 'Blue Lines', which many regard to be the finest dance music album of all time. They invented trip hop long before people like Portishead, Morcheeba etc were on the scene. 'Protection' and 'Mezzanine' are 2 fantastic dance music albums that display superb creativity & timeless tracks encompassing, trip hop, dub, nu-soul, chill out, dark & optmistic lyrics & haunting poignant music which was very much a reflection on the 90s decade. Stunning music makers who will forever be remembered, RESPECT.
