4.0 out of 5 stars Quite quite mad, but endearingly so 6 Oct 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is less a remix album than a collection of new tracks loosely based around the original recordings which comprised the still-excellent Protection album. What Mad Professor does here is turn up the bass until your ribcage shakes, strips away some of the layers and concentrates on the hypnotic cycles of bass and drums and bass and drums and... it's unsettling, dark and at times dense, but rewarding. I don't know about the first cut being the deepest, but the first track here is the weakest. From thereon in, and just when you may start thinking "I've bought a lemon," the bass rumbles away and sweeps you off with it, and by the time you hit Cool Monsoon, you're away in another dimension. Don't buy this if you want to hear "Protection" with a different drum pattern or arrangement. Buy it if you want to hear a totally different dub-heavy take on a classic album. It's a potent brew.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a journey into sound...... 18 Nov 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Fantastic, forget Protection, I think many people who buy this are expecting a remix of Unfinished Sympathy. It's not, it's dub, that's what it was meant to be and that's what it is. It does exactly what it says on the tin.

Dub originates from Jamaican producers in the 60s messing around with the instrumental track of popular reggae hits, often as B sides. The echo chamber often being the weapon of choice, this is what the Professor triumphs at and what he is best remembered for.
It drags you in and spits you out, enveloped in a gluey, sticky bass bubble, adhering you helpless to the sofa and unable to reach for the controls. What a way to go......

5.0 out of 5 stars good but takes a few listens 9 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
i've had this album for years, originally i never liked it and it gathered dust on my shelf but recently i rediscovered it and i think its fantastic. imagine my surprise then when watching High Fidelity and it gets quoted by John Cusac... whatever. anyway, i reccomend playing this very late at night, say 4 in the morning when you have had to stay up all night to do lots of work. play it through big headphones and it will sound fantastic to your vulnerable brain. but it does take a few listens to when you first buy it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Dubbed out Remixes 26 Aug 2010
By Cadders
Format:Audio CD
This set of dubbed out remixes takes a classic of the Bristol trip hop movement and adds a thoroughly warranted dub slant to the underlying melodies. The result is a fantastic reforming of Massive Attack's work with a new depth and sonic impetus which will prove a worthy addition to anyone's collection of smoked out discs. A 90's classic.
