Folks the repress is not happening in 2018. Maybe 2019 at the least. Remember the mezzanine fiasco? This is going to be worse.

What's the story with this 2018 repress? Anybody have any news other than the date has been slipping for so long now?


February 3, 2018
Is anyone able to confirm that official repress is coming in two weeks? Release date has been set for last spring already and nothing, so I’m kinda sceptical. Also - THAT price? All shops have it listed for 55 $ + on pre-order, and that, ladies and gentlemen, even for a 3LP, should be considered as a fucking ripoff.

The LP was supposed to be reissued this year (2017)
I preordered it back in December but just been notified that the repress has been cancelled and got refunded.
No further word on it, let's hope it's just another RSD victim and that they did not pull the plug for good.

Isn't it supposed to be repressed ?

It lasted five years before a successor to Massive Attack Mezzanine. Of the original three Massive Attack members there is still only one active. Robert ' 3D ' Del Naja, also only vocalist of the triad, is entirely responsible for 100th Window. Who thought Mezzanine all duly to the gloomy side, his chest wetting. 100th Window goes a little further. This cd is entirely according to Del Naja's pessimistic view on contemporary life filled: bleak, dark and, above all, melancholic. Lyrically, it is nothing but misery, in which Sinead O'Connor the most appropriate person to some guest vocals for her. Nevertheless, 100th Window has become yet another gorgeous album, which of course also due to the due contributions by Sinead O'Connor and this time unrecognizable Horace Andy. 100th Window is this a weighty album, that completely in line with Mezzanine. Who can bring it on to this whole album in one is out to listen, has a strong position in his shoes.

Vinyl reissue apparently due for release Jan 20th. Available for pre-order on Music Direct and others.

Some albums take time to sink in, this is one of them. I remember feeling very neutral towards most of the materials on this album except for "A Prayer For England" which I really liked. I then put it aside for a few years before giving it a second chance. The qualities then began to resonate. Future Proof, Special Cases, Butterfly Caught, Name Taken and Antistar are above average productions but still not memorable or timeless. 3.5/5

Give it time..... its worth it!
....100th Window is not an instant album, nor is it remotely like their first 2 albums, Its more like Mezzanine, but less rocky self conscious and more beautiful and intricate... i love the darkness and paranoia of it, the insularity, the sound of a man who had driven his bandmates out and turned his neuroses into quasi-eastern electronica...masterful and very very underrated, a beautiful, intricate, powerful album that grows in brilliance with every play...
