...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.

After 4 full length albums spanning back to the late eighties, Trip-Hop Bristol duo Massive Attack have gathered 13 songs from across all their albums (at least 3 from each) along with one unreleased song to finish the MA Collection. The music is largely a mix of electronica, rap and experimental tunes and (at least with me) needs to be listened to at the appropriate time such as late at night when its dark or played in the background as it makes for a good ambience setting. With numerous vocal guest performances (and their own lyrical workings) 'Collected' is like a mix-tape of songs that span over 15 years.

The sound of a ghostly air swirling around initiates the beginning of 'Safe From Harm'. The first song on 'Collected' as well as on debut album 'Blue Lines' from 1991, its a bass driven, shifting downbeat funk track. "But if you hurt whats mine I'll sure as hell retaliate" is part of the overprotective vibe to the bridge, sang by a resurgent Shara Nelson. Swift rhymes cut in now and then by '3D' or Robert Del Naja, along with distorted, twanging jazz guitar pull-offs. "You can free the world, you can free my mind, just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight" proves to be a less ambitious chorus but a more memorable sing along with backing vocals and an easier tempo and pitch to follow. The track oozes soul and is laid back personified. 'Karmacoma' however is not the best follow up. From the difficult 1994 second album 'Protection', 3D is delegated to singing duties and hardly breaks out of a whispering mumble whilst twitching tribal noises contort and shape around a jungle like rhythm. "I must be crazy, see I'm Swayze" just acts as a rhyming point for other words trundling along to the now deteriorating drum pattern.
