Product Description

Product Description

In anticipation of their new album, Massive Attack Collected includes both their best tracks from the band's history as well as the new single "Live With Me". The album charts their mixing of genres from dance through trip-hop, blues and soul.

BBC Review

After a three-year hiatus, Massive Attack's sole survivor, Robert '3D' Del Naja has skimmed the cream off their four albums for Collected, a medley of musical mastery.

This 'Best Of' launches with 1991's "Safe From Harm", featuring Shara Nelson's emotionally-charged delivery which pulls on the heart-strings and sets the quality bar for the next 13 songs.

The band unfurl their armoury of chilled beats, dub-drenched basslines, shimmering vocals and brooding strings, reminding you of just how influential the Bristol trio have been on down-tempo music in the UK.

With gems including "Teardrop", "Inertia Creeps", "Protection" and "Unfinished Sympathy", Collected is an ear-pricking panorama of the '90s. A hint at the band's future direction comes with the bonus track "Live With Me", which boasts the soulful talents of Terry Callier.

This is a compilation to cherish - one where you can leave the skip button untouched. --Jack Smith

...for all future 'greatest hits' packages.

Whilst the single-disc version is great if you simply want all the 'hits' in one place, there is so much extra stuff on the two-disc version that it is well worth the small extra cost.

It is a cliche to describe trip-hop as sounding 'cinematic', but the tracks on disc two really do sound like the soundtrack to a film (indeed, several have appeared in movies).

There is absolutely no let up in quality on disc two; all the tracks sound great, as magnificently moody as anything on the first disc.

Add the fact that you also get all the band's videos on the second disc, and it really does add up to an absolutely essential package.

this is brilliant, worth it for the audio side of the second disc alone. plus you get the DVD and all the old favourites on top. only one problem , disc two is not recognised in a PC (well not in the 3 ive tried) so you cant put on your mp3 player (easily), plus dont do as i did and play it in your car as the dual disc is slightly thicker and wouldnt come back out until i had the dashboard apart!! anyway enough of my Frank Spencer-isms.

Now normally i'm not really one to buy greatest hits albums but with this one i just couldn't resist.Massive Attack that helped (along with Portishead and Tricky)define the poignant trip-hop genre that was popular throughout the 90's this is a great run down of what Massive Attack are about and if your new to them this album is essential.

1.Safe From Harm - Taken from their debut 'Blue Lines' and features some great vocal stylings of Shara Nelson this is one of the highlights and one of my favourite songs overall 10/10

2.Karmacoma - This is one of the only songs im not crazy about the vocalist just seems to babble about..well nothing really it's one of the on duds on her 4/10

3.Angel - This is an interesting song it features the legendary roots reggae singer Horace Andy and the song is a rehash of his own song "You Are My Angel" its one of the most sexiest...yes this song is very sexy to me anyway and Horace Andy's vocals are fantastic this sounds great through headphones 10/10

4.Teardrop - My absolute favourite and i'm not alone here this song was not only Massive Attack's biggest hit but its the song that made them a mainstream success with the so-beautiful-it-hurts vocals by the former Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser this is also a very sexy song it was accompanied by a very artist and ahead of its time video which till this day still leaves me gobsmacked everytime i see it this also stands as one of my favourite songs of all time 10/10

5.Inernia Creeps - A cool song with a eastern influence one of the most original songs on the CD i would say. Again the same vocalist from track 2 but this time it works and turns out to be a satisfactory song it has a very good build up 10/10

This is an excellent 'Best of' album. I must admit that Massive Attack largely passed me by when this stuff was first out. Probably my age!! I got into listening to them when I heard 'Mezzanine'. However listening to this compilation demonstrates how inventive they were. The idea of bringing guest singers in for so many of the tracks was a definite plus as it adds variety. The music is smooth all the way through. Some of it is beautiful but always dark-tinged.

Stand out tracks are 'Angel', 'Teardrop', 'Safe from Harm' and 'Unfinished Sympathy'. I would say that the better tracks are those that have female vocals but the music all round is very good. A great introduction to Massive Attack, but you should also buy 'Mezzanine' if you haven't got it.

Good buy.

Well what can be said about Massive Attack that hasn't already been written before? Well they were originally born as The Wild Bunch crew in the 1980's and put out some classic tracks such as "The Look of Love", "Friends & Countrymen" & "Tearing Down The Avenue". Nellie Hooper left the crew to join Soul II Soul in London, while the remains of The Wild Bunch were reborn as Massive Attack at the turn of the decade.
Their debut and sophomore singles ("Any Love" feat Carlton Mccarthy and "Daydreaming" feat Shara Nelson), broke new ground in terms of a 'hip hop/dub/soul' sound. The concept was hugely influential on other acts such as Bomb The Bass, Nenah Cherry, Tricky and Portishead as they stomped into the 90's.
This collection omits their first two, less familiar singles (although the Daydreaming video is included on the DVD), which has caused me to not score it 5/5. However, what you have here is a definative soundtrack to the 1990's, along with a new single featuring the seminal Terry Callier.
The bonus disc is essential as it features some rare tracks on one side along with all the videos from their singles in DVD format on the flip.
Overall an almost complete package for the died hard Massive Attack supporter, it also caters well for the casual fan who perhaps doesn't want to own all the albums, but would like all the hits on one disc.
