5.0 out of 5 stars At last a collection that brings back those heady days......, 14 Mar 2006
This review is from: Collected - The Best Of Massive Attack : Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Remember Sunrise, M25 phone stops, when little fellas were real and cost 25 quid? You'd get back home, travel to a distant planet and chill to decent music. This collection although small (its near impossible to put all the quality tunes on one album) brings to the listener nostalgia, combined with a wake up call re: reality of todays rehashed crap.
Massive attack were pioneers of dub reggea, the Bristol scene and the angst against Reagan,Thatcher,Rascism and the now embedded greed culture. Although after the departure of many of the original members they seemed to loose the way a tad. Movie soundtrack qualities, combined with stunning vocals from a plethora of talent and instrumentals that evoked visulisations beyond believe.
This collection will proove that you can buy class occasionally (as with this album) and you can't beat genuine originality, which this group have/had in abundance.
I would recommend a visit to the micro site and a listen to the tracks on the collection and the stunningly evocative live with me track.....massive attack...back with style!
