Overview

Protection was widely considered a disappointing follow-up to Massive Attack's groundbreaking debut, Blue Lines. Where their debut bent all of the conventional hip-hop, dub reggae, and soul rules, Protection essentially delivered more of the same. Perhaps that's the reason why Mad Professor's remix of the album, No Protection, was welcomed with open arms by both Massive Attack fans and critics. Mad Professor has returned the group to their experimental, cut-and-paste dub reggae and hip-hop roots. He has gutted the songs -- twisting and reassembling the vocal tracks, giving the songs deeper, fuller grooves and an eerily seductive atmosphere. In other words, he has made Protection into a more daring and fulfilling album with his remixes.

Wow, what a blast! Mad Professor, certainly knows how to make this record funny and enjoying again! The SFX's some how scares the s**t out of you, especially when played loud. This is for sure a good dub CD, but it's even funnier if you already have ''Protection''. He some how manage to stick to the core of the songs, while, on the other hand, flips out completely!! Great!! Also credits to Neelle Hooper, everything she touches turns into gold.
