Artist Overview
The Bristol collective known as Massive Attack arose out of the acid house scene of late-1980s England to become one of the 1990s' greatest innovators. The group has changed the face of music every time out. They invented "trip-hop" on their debut, BLUE LINES, and then moved dance music toward a fusion where genres like dub, soul, ambient, and electronica merge so completely that categories cease to matter.

Entertainment Weekly (5/15/98, pp.102-103) - "MEZZANINE is Victorian trip-hop--hulking, clangorous, and dank....It's industrial music for the turn of the century--the 19th century." - Rating: A-
Q (12/99, p.100) - Included in Q Magazine's "90 Best Albums Of The 1990s."
Q (6/00, p.80) - Ranked #15 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "...Sonic murk and gloom...a punk-hop record about autism..."

CMJ (1/11/99, p.7) - "...The grandfathers of trip-hop pulled off yet another wise and wily album, redefining the future shape of pop, soul and trip-hop, while inspiring another wave of artists in the process..."
Musician (7/98, pp.84-86) - " once the best and most personal album of their career....MEZZANINE shows them creating exotic, bruised backdrops for battered relationships that feel as strangely alienating as a night out with Travis Bickle..."
Mojo (Publisher) (p.66) - Ranked #14 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[I]t evokes DARK SIDE OF THE MOON's epic yet intimate dread, reflected in the obliquely monochrome title..."
