Always been a huge fan of their music since the early 90's. Blue Lines the legendary Bristol Album absolute quality and a mainstream breaker for street music and trip-hop.

Interesting documentary if you're interested of course.

Gives a lot more of their background, the Wild Bunch record label and Bristols music scene. Very interesting.

Can see that they've just released 'Dear Friend' on vinyl. Not cheap for a 2 track vinyl, but then this is MA!

Huge fan here as well. Was gutted when a friend near Miami had tickets and said if I could afford the airfare he would take care of everything else. Of course I couldn't...I usually don't have an extra $600 lying around.

I'll check out that docu for sure though. Don't think I've ever seen on specifically on MA. I was a bit disappointed with their last offering. The LP that was orange on the cover w/ the weird face? None of the songs were awful, but nothing grabbed me the way most of their old tunes do. I'll have to have another listen.

@relic , Heligoland? I felt the same way about that album when it first came out. I bought it last year and gave it another chance and it grew on me in a whole new way. It is an awesome album IMO.

That is the one. I'll have to give it another spin.

Re: Massive Attack

I like the recent music they have been making A LOT more than the old music. For me when it comes to trip-hop I am not much of a massive attack guy, but the new stuff is pretty good. I like a few of their older songs, but to me the new stuff as a whole project is better.

Re: Massive Attack

whoa wtf really? @relic @vashima

Heligoland was awesome, tight production, snappy. in your face. they had something to say. Splitting the Atom, Girl I love you, Paradise Circus, Psyche, Flat of the Blade...literally the whole album lool

and this next affair, especially with that EP Rituals EP, that was fucking awesome. Vodoo in my blood is like a magic spell. the new tracks with Ghostpoet and sandoval are beautiful

come near me i had to get into cause ghostpoets opening sequence is a little jarring before he gets to the verses.

and if The Spoils doesn't make you wanna go fuck someone i dunno. you no human

new album will probably be darker, slinking back into their trip hoppy apparitions. trickys track is good too.
