While "Protection" might not be as good as their first album "Blue lines" and a bit overshadowed by other albums it's far from a bad apple in any way, actually one of my favorites with a distance. It's a bit unever though, some songs are close to perfection but some feels forgettable by now. The first song, the title track "Protection" is sang by Tracy Thorn from "Everything But the Girl" it's this albums best song and was a hit back them aswell. Tracy's haunting lyrics and voice fits the hip hop beats and samples perfect. The hook is also memorably good. "Karmacoma" is the normal Horacy Andy trip hop with rapping. "Three" is rather odd, decent song sang by Nicolette but could have been better. "Weather Storm" is a song to remember since it's slow jazz, completely diffrent from the rest of the songs here, it really showed the many influents Massive got. "Spying Glass" is reggae. "Better Things" is another Tracy Thorn song, it sound like a train, it has good beats and beautiful sound. Defenitely one of the highlight to not miss out. "Eurochild" is yet another rap song. "Sly" is with Nicolette, beautiful sound. "Heat Miser" is another highlight, it starts with fast piano playing and the sound of someone breathing deep. It got this mysterious feeling, great for a horror movie. Those kind of song is partly what makes Massive so pleasant. The album closes with a live remake of the Doors "Light My Fire" quite allright actually. Overall this is a very good album, forgotten by many but it has many highlight's worth taking a look at. A very good variety of sound and genre's and many songs with the great mysterious Massive sound. Recommended for anyone that likes something diffrent.

"Protection" is another classic Massive Attack album that breaks the mold in what trip-hop/dub music is. Not as strong as their debut "Blue Lines" or the phenomenal "Mezzanine", "Protection" still impresses with its sinsiter grooves, nigh-disturbing lyrics and poignant vocals.

I'm really surprised to see Mezzanine got a better average rating than this one as Protection undoubtedly is one of the most important electronic releases of the 90's. True it's not as conceptual as "Blue lines" but it's certainly not a uneven album either as i've read it many times... All the tracks, without exception, are good ( actually most are excellent ) and in my view it wouldn't be exagerated to say that Protection stands as a best-of triphop all by itself. And no, "Heat miser" is not the best track here, and yes i do like the cover of "light my fire" which sounds cool an ends this resolutely dark album on a brighter note.
If you're seeking a soundtrack for your cold urban winters Protection is just unmissable.

This second album from the pioneer group Massive Attack entitled "Protection" is a very good but also a very uneven album in it's own right but compared to their other stuff, "Protection" is an unfortunate victim to their later two albums "Mezzanine" and "100th Window" in my opinion.
One thing that really stands out though is that this album has a very hazy summer evening kind of mood, kind of like those hazy sunsets: that's what the music on this album evokes. Most of this album is very lightweight compared to "Mezzanine" but on it's own "Protection" has plenty to offer.
My favorite tracks are the title track, "Karmacoma" and "Weatherstorm".
The title track is easily the best track on this entire album. This track to me is one of the best mid 1990s chill-out tracks featuring a very nice hip-hop beat, and Tracey Thorn's absolutely crystal clear vocals which dominate this track. Wow! She sounds absolutely incredible on this track. This album is worth buying just for the title track alone. "Karmacoma" is another favorite track of mines with an excellent blend of chill-out dance and some reggae elements. The somewhat subdued rapping is actually quite good.
ALthough no bad songs by any stretch of the imagination, this album starts to kind of go all over the place and somewhat meander aimlessly in places.
"Weather Storm" is actually quite a fantastic and a great romantic relaxing song to listen to while basking in the sun on a summer evening but even though I really love this track, this one belongs on a smooth jazz Cd or on a smooth jazz station. I could actually recall hearing this on a smoothe jazz station one time a while back but had no idea that it was actually Massive Attack.

I love Mezzanine, but for sheer range of emotions, music, etc, Protection beats it hands down.
What Protection lacks in the dark, macabre sound of Mezzanine, it makes up for with darkly mellow tracks like Protection and Three, evil grooves like Eurochild, and the unbelievable instrumental Weather Storm (my absolute favorite track of theirs).
There are a few weak moments on the CD. The live version of Light My Fire is to be avoided (fortunately, it is the last track), and Spying Glass doesn't really do it for me.
Otherwise, this is a brilliant album with a vast range of sounds. Highly recommended for fans of Massive Attack, Tricky, etc...
