Massive Attack’s collaborations with female vocalists always were very fruitful. When You look at the names, you can see that they know where to look for an extraordinary effect – Shara Nelson (Blue Lines), Tracey Thorn and Nicolette Suwoton (Protection), Elisabeth Fraser (Mezannine), Martina Topley-Bird (Splitting the Atom), Hope Sandoval (Heligoland).
And there is also “100 th window” LP with unique Sinéad O’Connor apperance. I can listen to her voice on this album over and over.
Here ethereal yet so strong “What Your Soul Sings”.
Yes, this track is very dark but it is an outstanding piece of music as well. For me one of the very best tunes recorded by Massive Attak and definitely the best on Mezzanine LP. These deep sounds, underlined by simple but so expressive bassline with drowsy voices of 3D and Daddy G are just stunning. It’s narcotic, addictive and yet given with such a great flow, meaty beat and top notch production. Well, a masterpiece from one of the best musical projects I have ever heard. Definitely it has it’s place in my all time hall of fame.
Waiting for more like this Wild Bunch!
Today is a premiere of this track – Massive Attack and Burial in one tune. There’s going to be an EP released by Burial and Massive together soon. Deeply depressing and sad but every fan of theese projects should take a try and listen:
I’ll never get bored with this song. It has been with me during so many important moments of my life. For me, one of the best trip-hop tunes ever. Belive me or not, but I feel protected by this sounds.
