Product Description


This is the studio work of London's prodigious dub godfather, Mad Professor, who takes Massive Attack's Protection album as raw material to create a completely new experience. Bits are added, dropped out, accentuated, run through sonic effects, drenched in reverb, turned inside out until the songs disappear and in their place emerge reborn textural soundscapes. No Protection gives a sort of discursive aural commentary on Protection's original songs, pointing out all the obscured details--the minutest percussive rings and beeps, the most mesmerizing bass loops. --Roni Sarig

5.0 out of 5 stars Got to have it! Sept. 25 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you own "Protection" you've got to have "No Protection"...depending on how
you feel that particular day you'll want to hear one and not the other. They're
both amazing but very different!

2.0 out of 5 stars D-U-L-L April 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoy dub, from the old-school Trojan stuff up through Burning Spear, LKJ, etc., and I have a couple Mad Professor CDs. While sometimes overly busy, both have some fun, interesting stuff. I'd heard that "No Protection" bears little resemblance to "Protection." No problem, I thought, it'll be fun to check out what the Mad Professor brings to the project. Inexplicably, he abandons his usual kitchen-sink approach, and what we get here is dishwater-dull. The first few tracks are enjoyable, melllll-ow ear candy. The rest is aural wallpaper. (The last song is an absolute waste of time, but you'll likely be asleep by then.) Buy this only if you're looking for something to crash to.

1.0 out of 5 stars No Connection Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Protection" was Massive Attack`s worst record, but this remix album is even worse, destroying the few interesting moments that the band`s second effort had. Remixer Mad Professor deconstructs the songs and gives them a dub/ reggae-oriented sound, something that`s decent enough during the first two/ three tracks but soon becomes terribly uninspired, repetitive, boring and formulaic.
There are no variations or contrasts in this remixes, the process is always the same and the album seems endless, almost impossible to listen through in one sitting while managing to remain awake. Seriously, this is a major disappointment, and certainly one of the most monotonous, one-dimensional and flat records around.
For fans and completists only.

Massive Attack, after having being (unfair) criticized, after the release of their second Album "Protection", handed over the Original Master Tapes to U.K. Dub Cut-and-paste mastermind "The Mad Professor", who subsequently, took the original source material completely apart, deconstructed, incorporated Dub-reggae sampling and completely Rebuild the album with a much harder (but, Dub-influenced) sound.....(which was what the original "Protection" album was heavily Criticized for lacking).....every track has been completely reworked, to incorporate a thicker more sampled, and Trip-Hop styled sound, Tracks such as the album titled "Protection", "Karmacoma", & "Spying Glass" have had the vocals heavily "Reverbed" & "Distorted" to produce something that is recognisable, yet far removed from the original's Electronica-styled sound, and the surround & resonance move this version into a sound space that the original couldn't possibly hope to occupy, and therefore this makes it a tremendous accompaniment to the original album, rather than a replacement for it....

5.0 out of 5 stars Dub Madness - Expertly Produced Jan. 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'll take this album over PROTECTION any day as the latter sounds almost boring in comparison. Flying tablas, breathing atmospheres, 2-ton beats . . . put this on and just groooove, baby! It's a trip.

2.0 out of 5 stars wasted effort Oct. 9 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The original of this album was 'Protection' and was excellent, though perhaps not as good as their brilliant first album 'Blue lines' or their 3rd 'Mezzanine'. However this remix by Mad Professor blurs the vocals, particularly the wonderful title track Protection sung by Tracy Thorn (of Everything but the Girl) and adds little to Massive Attacks clear sound and clear social commentary. A must for collectors only or those who don't like lyrics.
All others; buy the other Massive Attack albums first

5.0 out of 5 stars No Comparison May 31 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Re-mixes and dub remixes are two different animals. Often, as is the case with Mad Professor's take of Massive Attack's Protection, dubs radically manipulate and reshape a recording. Dubs, and particularly those of the Mad Professor, should not be compared to the original, per se, but should be judged on their own merits. Remixes by non-dub producers play it rather safe in comparison. Which is fine, of course. To say that the Mad Professor "ruined" Protection, as several reviewers have, is incoherent. This isn't a slight tweak, this is a reworking, and a damn good one at that.
No Protection is deep and spacey, with heavy bass. While there is a dark undercurrent, it generates plenty of warmth as long as you are not expecting the same plane of soulfulness found on Massive Attack's original. No Protection is one of the heaviest grooves of any downtempo album, and if you are in the mood, you'll feel it.
