massive attack is back on track. they don't preach massproduction and only sparsly deliver an album... and then it's 'bull's eye'.
their sound and quality is simply unmatched in my opinion.
great album

the wait has been worthwhile....first few listens you are not too sure but well worth sticking with because there are a lot of growers..great to have them back.

  Brilliant!

Pre-ordered this back on the 5th and it must have got lost in the crush as i've only received it yesterday. Not bothered as it was worth the wait. MA doing what they do best with some amazing tracks like Babel and the beautiful Paradise Circus with its minimalist beat, piano and soaring strings at the end. Everyone should have this album, even if you are only a passing fan of MA.

  A Classic For 2010 Is Born

| | See all carlosjackal's reviews (4)

Having had a chance to listen to all the tracks, I can safely say Massive Attack are not just back to form but back with a classic. Some of the tracks are growers, but the majority of them have hooks to grab you initially and then as each track sinks in, it hits you...This is the sound of an album made to pull the heartstrings of the emotionally torn with absolutely no hint of overwrought cliche just genuine intention. Amazing stuff.

This is MA at there best,after the not so good 100th window,although it did grow on me in the end,Heligoland is genius!! Martina Topley-Bird and Guy garvey to name but a few,just make this album even more enjoyable.I found myself lost in this album in my own world!! Id say it's a cross between Blue lines & Mezzanine,which cant be a bad thing hey? Highly recommend you buy this!!
