Whew! 'Nuff said. Bye!
For months I couldn't get through a day without playing this album at least once or twice. Now, i come back to it, and it sounds new again. Beautifully rich and dark. The voices never seem to interfere with the mood, rather they become fused with it perfectly--the percussion and varied sounds, never the "thump-thump" of dancey trancy crap.
I cannot wait for Massive Attack's next album release. I hope they return to this level again: because it was lost a bit in 100th Window. Sinead O'Connors political content loaded lyrics on the Irish-English conflict totally overshadowed the musical gift of Massive Attack. The MOOD is enough to convey that and more to listeners without creating narrow, literal channels of interpretation and storytelling. The track Antistar on 100th was the strength being revealed, but still couldn't shine with the magic of Mezzanine. Storytelling/literal political agendas are not what Massive Attack's strength is: Stick with your strength: It's Mezzanine. It's ALL there. the MUSIC.
This is by far one of the best albums in history, in my honest opinion. No one else has come so close, so completely, on an entire album.
