“A whole new world out there”

published 12/08/2001

ProA stepping stone for the narrow minded

Consyou may lose days appreciating it

I know I really should try to write on some more recent music releases, but to be honest I can't find the enthusiasm for more than a few albums in the last year or so. Sure there are some bands doing interesting and innovative work (Sigur Ros, Radiohead, My Vitriol), but in general there just...

ConsNone that can't be put up with

Some albums are just born classics, some albums never quite make it to begin with and some just tend to mature and grow with time …. A little like Charlotte Church (joke!!) …. Mezzanine isn't a Revolver, and it isn't a Westlife LP either, it's an album that I have owned for over a year but only...

ProVirtually everything

ConsA couple of songs not perfect

A lot of people who I know will probably think that I’m wondering way out of character by liking this so much. All my friends know that they don’t even bother suggesting to me that I go out clubbing with them, such is my hatred of dance music. So what am I doing listening and indeed...

ProVery laid back, easy to listen to.

ConsVery little variation in pace and style

Hmm, well I'm going to proceed with this review despite the fact that I know little about the band Massive Attack. I borrowed a copy of this CD from my boyfriend who was convinced that I'd like it for my more chilled-out, laid back listening moods and, boy, was he right! I was surprised at how...

“solid”

Proyes

Conssome

this is a haunting album. It is very diverse and difficult to pin down exactly what genre it belongs to and indeed how good it is. The obviously great track is ‘teardrop’. Now this song is awesome. The guitar line (probably synthesised) repeats in a tender lyrical fashion and the singer’s voice...

ConsMore drum-and-bassy, second track

Massive Attack's development can be easily tracked by listening to Blue Lines, Protection and then Mezzanine, so your liking for the third may well depend on what you valued in the first two. I personally love this album, particularly the famous 'Angel' and 'Teardrop', but also relative unknowns...
