      my copy sounds so good, it’s very very deep and i can adore it sm!! only complaint is a bit of surface noise on the beginning of risingson

        The most deliciously dark album to ever shock the world! With such beautifully bleak anthems such as my most beloved fave "Angel", "Risingson", and "Teardrop", Bristol has never been so embraced with such evil and droll-sounding anthems ever!

        Btw, I owned the original CD album before, and I bought the new 20th anniversary edition on iTunes. It's pretty good that the discs of the physical copies have PS1-style undersides - sweet!

          Overall record is ok. Tons of non-fill on my second disc. Side A/B is ok but lot of surface noise that even after a deep clean on my Kirmuss Audio Ultrasonic is still present. Records are flat and have pretty good dynamics overall. Actually had to adjust my bass settings on my speakers. Wish they had higher quality control for the price....

            This review is for the Minidisc Album from 1998 and I give it a 10/10 point.

            Overall the mix is dynamic with wonderfull rich basstones. The songs feed nicely into each other and give this album a great gapless play.

            The warm and very rich fuzz guitar sounds just amazing. Beats are punchy and the vocals crisp.

            I highly recommend this album.

              Am I tripping, or is there no listing for the Mezzanine spray paint can reissue from 2018? Did someone in the ivory tower decide it can't be sold on Discogs? Or was it a massive prank that I'm not hip to? Entirely possible.

                "Fucking unbelievable!" was my first thought when I heard this for the first time. The bass leaped out from my speakers with so much rumble and force that it actually gave me goosebumps. The stereo imaging is also something else to behold.

                Seriously, how can you get any better than this?

                  I knew of Massive Attack but hadn't heard much of their music. Mainly bought this album for "Teardrop". Boy was I surprised at how awesome their music is. Definitely glad I decided to add this to my collection. And this pressing sounds amazing. What a treat.

                    I own this version since day one! The sound is deep, spacious and so hi-end, particularly the lows, which this album is known for!!! Your speakers and the way they are positioned in the room will be tested hard on Angel, Black Milk and Group Four!!!!

                      Trip Hop is not usually my bag but absolutely love this album. Get a decent copy & it’s definitely demo disc quality.

                        Is there anyone else here that would love it if they released some sort of proper 24bit-96kHz+ digital format? By 'proper' I mean with its full dynamic range (not like their 2012 mix/master of Blue lines, where the dynamics are squashed into a limiter, conversely). I wish there was a DVD-audio version. Or it could be an SACD...hell even the 20bit HDCD, with peak extension, might fair better than the vinyl pressings, at least in some regard, seeing how this album seems to be a "challenge" for the vinyl format, as one commenter noted. The female vocals suffer from sibilance...which are one of the most indispensable qualities of this album—Liz Frazer and Sara Jay—but that's not to discredit the other vocalists...every part of this album is indispensable; absolute masterpiece, and the pinnacle of the trip-hop genre, imo. Or if you don't like the term trip-hop—as nearly none of the associated artists seem to lol—it's at least a quintessential of 90s music in the general realm of hip-hop/electronic music.

                        It's just a masterpiece that stands the test of time, imo, and it's a shame that there doesn't seem to be a truly high quality version, when the vinyls all seem to suffer from sibilance—maybe others have had better luck, idk. It's very apparent on "Dissolved Girl," as soon as the vocals come in with "shame, s*s*such a shame". A DVD-audio or any of the others would put that to rest, while giving us that sweet, crispy, dynamic range...and yo, while you're at it...put a proper version of "Wire" on there somewhere, ffs! lol Not a just a remix...but the full studio version, with Sara Jay's vocals. I don't understand how that song didn't make it on the album, or just get released as some sort of B-side or something. Awesome track; very much Mezzanine vibes, and I know I'm not the only one clamoring for a truly quality version, mastered just like the rest of the album...or if not that, just the best full demo, sourced from the analogs.

                        If you agree, or think it's a good idea, please upvote, reply, or comment about it too, so maybe we could get some conversation going about it unless I'm alone here ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
