When first hearing this album, i was left wandering if the boys Massive still had the clout that gave us the greatness of 'Unfinished Sympathy', and my first reaction was a dissapointing no. Loved everything between 100th window; that being the 'Collected' album, the 'Bullet Boy' soundtrack-sadly never released, only on MP3. The brilliant instrumental stylings of 'Danny The Dog'. So, going back to Heligoland-Although i did prefer the original speculated title 'Weather Underground'- it just didn't have that power to draw you in like their previous albums had. I know Robert Del Naja and crew are much older, but it just did not feel like them. The vibe was lost somehow. then after a few hearings i came to realise how strong the tracks were becoming. ' Pray For Rain' with its dulcet piano tones to ambient beat finale, i began to realise their genius. They are changing at a rapid rate throught he entire presentation of the album. like most of us who follwed their trajected path throughout the 90's. Standout tracks include the aforementioned 'Pray For Rain', 'Splitting The Atom'(co-written with the ever busy Damon Albarn) who contributes to other tracks on the album. 'Girl I Love you' with regular alumni Horace Andy, and the stunning 'Psyche' with Martina topley-Bird on vocal, although i heard this track takes alternate shapes on different pressings of the album. If you are new to the Massive experience it would be a good place to start, but i would urge you to back track to the genius of their wonder years. Robert Del Naja and Neil Davidge are pioneers in sound design and hopefully will not give us another 7 year gap between albums.

Massive Attack.

Just the name itself suggests waves of dubby synths, deep basslines, martial yet half-asleep beats and croony vocals. Sure, they helped define a genre for the 90s, that lame "trip hop" tag so many claimed to be part of and so few deserved, producing much groundbreaking music, especially in the shape of their debut "Blue Lines" (1991), which helped set DJ culture into the mainstream, and "Mezzanine" (1998) that added heavy, howling guitars in the mix to a mostly stunning effect.

So, what's to expect from this, their 5th album proper in a mere twenty years career ? Well, as many other reviewers noted, a bit of the same and something different at once. First striking thing is the actual sound of the whole record. Some pointed out a supposed return to the coldness of "Mezzanine", but that's not at all what I hear here. If "100th Window", their 2003 effort, was a letdown to many fans, being more of a 3D solo effort than a collective work, in fact it furthered the post-punk hint "Mezzanine" suggested, replacing the loud guitar shriek with icy electro beats. The results were, to say the least, mixed, but at least it was still seeking forward, sonically speaking. On "Heligoland", by contrast, everything is understated, from the drum patterns to the shy basslines, from a quiet organ part in the background to voices you feel are more dreamt than actually performed. That's a record that almost begs forgiveness for existing at all, rather than punching its pride in your face, which is why it probably won't get among die-hard fans (let alone the mainstream) the same praise as their giddy peaks mentioned above.

I was introduced to Massive Attack by my daughter and immediately liked their last CD. This one however took me a while. My first thought was 'can't see me playing this much' but I left it in the car on the CD changer and gradually got used to it and now really appreciates the depths and nuances of the music.

To be honest, I overlooked this album when it first came out. The main reason was that the previous album, 100th Window, was incredibly one-paced, and, for want of a better word, dreary. The tracks on that album had poor lyrics, and one dimensional vocalists Del Naja (ok for a track or so) & Sinead O'Connor (?), and the tracks had no hooks, no progression, no definition, no edge, and for me, held no interest, sounding slightly muzaky.

Heligoland is what i call vintage Massive Attack. The variation is there, and a decent array of guest vocalists are present. So, in some respects this is like Blue Lines, but has more in common with Mezzanine, sounding quite dark and dense. 'Flat of the blade' does give the listener some restbite from that heavy atmosphere though, but even this track evolves and brings the listener back in by it's conclusion - it serves as a puncuation for the album (a good thing in my opinion). Whether Heligoland will hold my interest like Blue Lines (which, incidently, is starting to sound a little dated) and Mezzanine, or will suffer the same fate as Protection (which was accomplished but a little 'safe'), remains to be seen. I suspect it won't lose my interest because it has that slightly haunting quality and distinctive enough tracks. It will take quite a few listens to understand this album - more than the usual 4 or 5, i'm talking 10+ listens.

This has gone under the radar a bit, with people having unrealistic expectations of it, but trust me, there is some real quality here. A lot of the tracks ebb and flow with real aplomb, changing continually, most of which is subtly engaging in different ways, never stagnating, never repeating the same vocalists or patterns across the course of the album. No real standout tracks, but then why should there be? This is an album in the true sense of the word. It's going to be spending quite a lot of time in my CD player over the next few months.
