Massive Attack: Herb Crawlers

Stephen Dalton, New Musical Express, 15 February 1992

When MASSIVE ATTACK released their debut LP last year, it was hailed as a masterful collage of rap, soul and reggae with a cinematic feel. Now, instead of blazing a trail with a scorching follow-up, the least prolific band in Britain are relaunching Blue Lines with a fresh EP. STEPHEN DALTON discovers it's gotta be a mood thing, not a fame thing for the Bristol crew.
