Massive Attack: Mezzanine (Virgin)
Marc Weingarten, Los Angeles Times, 10 May 1998
MASSIVE ATTACK'S 1991 debut album, Blue Lines, has become a watershed album in the history of electronic dance music for a number of reasons. By melding ominous dub bass lines with neatly patterned drum loops and richly atmospheric production, Blue Lines virtually invented trip-hop.
