Fab band and fab album. Just replacing my CD bought in the 1990's as it is looking very worn and a bit scratched.
Very happy with this purchase and it was delivered quickly.

I'm no music critic. Buy the album though it's an experience.

Picture the scene. It's 1998 and Einstein is alive and well now living in the UK. He finds himself dismayed at his inability to solve the Theory of Relativity once and for all, even with a 16 bit Windows NT supercomputer and a dial up connection to this new information superhighway that everyone keeps talking about. The great man even finds himself cursing god for not spending week two writing up his experiment. Instead he decides to distract himself with some music. He'd enjoyed OK Computer by Radiohead released the previous year. He logs onto said information superhighway and brings up his amazon account. He sees his purchase of OK Computer and underneath it says "if you like this you'll love this even more". It's Mezzanine by Massive Attack. He has to wait 5 business days for his order to arrive as he rejects and amazon prime membership based on a dislike of Jeremy Clarkson. However he thinks it'll be worth waiting for. A week later the moment arrives and he has his first listen. He's not disappointed. It's a celestial masterpiece. Massive Attack certainly know the formula for brilliant results. Einstein forgets all about the Theory of Relativity and instead immediately looks at the Massive Attack Discography. He orders two more CD's. "Protection" from 1994 and "Blue Lines" from 1991. If only I could see into the future he says. (He means he'd be ordering 100th Window and Heligoland ). Einstein feels at piece with the world having made the ultimate discovery.

Get hold of this album. Wait until about 11 in the evening. Sit in your favourite armchair in a room lit sparsely. A couple of candles, perhaps. Turn up your hi fi so the sound fills the room, but doesn't deafen. Press play. Evaporate.
This album can be seen as a logical progression from Blue Lines and Protection as the textures get more complex and the sounds more original. It's certainly my favourite of the three. With some beautiful vocals on tracks like Teardrop, and some amazing energy on tracks such as as Angel this album offers a spectrum of atmospheres to experience. Some great laid back rapping and beats to make you kneel on the floor and thank god you've got a pulse. The addition of crunching guitar in the backgorund alongside organic synths works brilliantly.
This is music you can have as background whilst doing other things, but that's missing the point. Mezzanine is music to breathe to.
