Massive Attack was approached personally by Luc Besson and the film's director, Louis Leterrier, to record the soundtrack. Working over an 11-week period, the band set out to create an instrumental soundtrack, which captures both the fastpaced action and reflective sadness of Danny The Dog. The soundtrack is made up of 21 pieces of music, which run in chronological order throughout the film, with each piece depicting a certain scene, from the intensity of tracks such as Atta' Boy, Simple Rules, Collar Stays On, You've Had A Dream to the haunting dub and ambience of Sam's Tunes, Right Way To Hold A Spoon and Everybody's Got A family, the soundtrack demonstrates perfectly the band's gift for capturing the intricate mood of film.

For lovers of the "soundtrack genre" (if there is such a thing), this work falls a little to the left of Craig Armstrong (not surprisingly, since he worked with the band in the past). But, with the exception of the more urban tracks, it reminds of the music to "Long Walk Home" by Peter Gabriel too. In general, it comes across more like the music to a Michael Mann movie than one produced by the director of "The Big Blue", "The Professional" or "The Fifth Element".
Having been released in time for the holiday season, this is one great soundtrack to wrap up 2004, and certainly one deserving a special space... good to be disected with headphones, and I particularly at night. Rain, cheese and wine are up to you. The music comes loaded with enough spirits.
Packed with (predictably)doomy and deliciously dark atmospheres one can only await the film with anticipation. This is seriously good music and naturally one of the better soundtracks released in recent time.
If i've got it correct, Daddy G wasnt involved with this album (allthough he has released a great solo album in Europe just last month). But regardless of who was involved from the M.A crew,"Danny the Dog" has all the tell-tale signs characteristic of all their releases. Dubby doominess and ingenious backup melodies that make all the pieces blend eventually in to create one big soundscape that intimidates.
Massive Attack belong to a very special elite of groups or musicians whose music is impossibly difficult to get tired of.
This soundtrack is definitely an essential must-have for the fans of the group but it will undoubtedly become a trigger force for the group to be discovered by those who have miraculously still not detected them.
though 100th window is regarded as a reasonably good album, (not a classic, just reasonably good) that is only grudgingly, as those of us who have listened from the beginning have a hard time acknowledging it as massive.
but if we can forget for a moment the absence of Daddy and Mushroom, and look at massive as the innovative music entity that they always have been, we can also recall a bit of the same attitude with protection after blue lines. and then mezzanine blew us out of the water.
danny the dog is by far no mezzanine.
BUT it is a departure from the previous work of massive
yes, of course partly because it is a soundtrack.
but if you listen to it just as the latest work of massive attack, you will find that they have continued to do what they have always done - which is come at each new album with a drastically different sound.
extremely good mood music. all instrumental being a film score. inspiring to write to, both good to ignore and immerse oneself in.
i like it better than 100th window.
i would count it as one of their classics.
definitely worth picking up.
