    Massive Attack are an English trip hop group formed in 1988 in Bristol, consisting of Robert "3D" Del Naja, Grant "Daddy G" Marshall and formerly Andy "Mushroom" Vowles ("Mush"). Their debut album Blue Lines was released in 1991, with the single "Unfinished Sympathy" reaching the charts and later being voted the 63rd greatest song of all time in a poll by NME. 1998's Mezzanine, containing "Teardrop", and 2003's 100th Window charted in the UK at number 1. Both Blue Lines and Mezzanine feature in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

    For those of you that may be a bit more familiar with the band, they released a new EP this year called Ritual Spirit, featuring Young Fathers, Azekal, Roots Manuva and Tricky. Definitely worth hearing.

    Hope Sandoval's voice works very well with Massive Attack. I dig this song, it's nothing spectacular but it does give me hope for their new album after the disappointment of Heligoland.

    I know it's slightly irrelevant, but I'm listening to Maxinquaye for the first time tonight, and goddamn.

    One night I put on Protection to accompany me to sleep not having heard anything by this band, and that first 6 minutes is still some of the most moving music I've ever heard

    Listening to Mezzanine for the second time ever, first in a few years. Definitely feeling a good 75% of this, but I gotta say, the front half is really where it's at. Nothing came even close to those first four tracks, especially "Inertia Creeps." Between this and loving Tricky's debut, I think I may be a big fan of trip hop.
