Format: Audio CD
Increasingly ignored amidst the exploding trip-hop scene, Massive Attack finally returned in 1998 with Mezzanine, a record immediately announcing not only that the group was back, but that they'd recorded a set of songs just as singular and revelatory as on their debut, almost a decade back. It all begins with a stunning one-two-three-four punch: "Angel," "Risingson," "Teardrop," and "Inertia Creeps." Augmenting their samples and keyboards with a studio band, Massive Attack open with "Angel," a stark production featuring pointed beats and a distorted bass line that frames the vocal (by group regular Horace Andy) and a two-minute flame-out with raging guitars. "Risingson" is a dense, dark feature for Massive Attack themselves (on production as well as vocals), with a kitchen sink's worth of dubby effects and reverb. "Teardrop" introduces another genius collaboration - with Elizabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins - from a production unit with a knack for recruiting gifted performers. The blend of earthy with ethereal shouldn't work at all, but Massive Attack pull it off in fine fashion. "Inertia Creeps" could well be the highlight, another feature for just the core threesome. With eerie atmospherics, fuzz-tone guitars, and a wealth of effects, the song could well be the best production from the best team of producers the electronic world had ever seen. Obviously, the rest of the album can't compete, but there's certainly no sign of the side-two slump (heard on Protection), as both Andy and Fraser return for excellent, mid-tempo tracks ("Man Next Door" and "Black Milk," respectively).

HASH(0xa6194084) out of 5 stars Unbelieveable!!! 5 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD has broken new grounds on the music scene.
MassiveAttack have always been known for their original style which has nowbecome known as trip-hop, but with this album they take it a step further. The combination of innovative yet simple drumtracks and bass lines (up to three bass tracks per song) has an amazing effect. You can change the effect it has depending on the mood you are in or wish to be in, simply by adjusting the volume or where you play it. If you like to chill, have it playing quietly in a slightly dark room with one or two friends. To have a great vibe going for two, just have it on as if you were listening to the radio. But....when you pump up the volume, be prepared for what you are about to experience: the power will take you to another level and simply change the way you listen to music.
I hope you have as much enjoyment out of Massive Attack -and in particular this album- as I have had.
HASH(0xa5fd08ac) out of 5 stars This is without question one of the best albums I have ever heard 3 Oct. 2015

This is without question one of the best albums I have ever heard. I began collecting albums fifty years ago (!), and few of them have had the impact on me that Mezzanine has had. What's most remarkable is that it never gets old or tiresome. It presents a thoughtful and textured soundscape that never fails to evoke an emotional response, and if I had to choose, say, three albums from my collection to take with me to a desert island, Mezzanine would surely be one of them. Utterly engaging, eminently listenable, lush and provocative, it's a thoughtful and intelligent tour de force for Massive Attack, and everyone should own a copy. Bravo!
