    Massive Attack does it again!

    I love that MA is still going strong after all these years and coming up with new music that sounds fresh and innovative. While Heligoland is a bit of a departure from their previous album, it still has the signature sounds that I associate with Massive Attack. I love the way they layer sounds and melodies over each other for an end result that is a perfect intricate balance where sounds flow over each other rather than compete within the song. The songs have that soulful, gritty kind of sound-not overproduced as so much of today's music is-that remind me of the old days listening to records when you could hear just a faint tinge of scratchiness in the background. Tracks I have on repeat are: (1) Pray for Rain, (3) Splitting the Atom, (4) Girl I Love You, (7) Paradise Circus, (8) Rush Minute and (9) Saturday Come Slow. It's the kind of album that reinforces why they're the forefathers of the trip hop movement.

    another great offering

    I can't top the 1st reviewer so just am going to give my favorite track #'s-the cd is backloaded (in my opinion) so 7, 8, 9, and 10 are the best (also 3 and 4) :)

    Massive

    The amazing thing about this new album, is that it's #1 a true Massive Attack CD. There are some striking similarities and consistencies in it's sound, when compared to their debut album Blue Lines. Like Blue Lines, it's minimal, with just enough eeriness to be considered real trip-hop. But then again Massive Attack are one of the forefathers of trip-hop. Heligoland just borderlines on edgy rock, yet gets funky in spots. All the spirit of the trip-hop world is felt through out each track. And #2 it marks the return of nearly all of it's original components Grantley Marshall (a.k.a Daddy G), Robert Del "3D" Naja along with Neil Davidge. But unfortunately no Andrew Vowles to speak of and Tricky is doing quit well in his long lived solo career. Plus the add ons such as Elizabeth Frazier, Martina Topley-Bird and Mr Horace Andy etc from previous albums make their return. This joyous reunion means that Daddy G and Robert Del Naja, after an extensive cooling off period, have returned to the sound that put them on the forefront of a fairly new genre. In other words their production methods are fresh and back to normal. Heligoland is a new era for the tripped out faction and what a come back it is.
