Massive Attack – Mezzanine

Massive Attack’s Mezzanine is a classic trip-hop album and a great place to start to check out the group. Massive Attack is a British trip-hop band that incorporates hip hop beats and a variety of other genres into their own chill, laid-back style. Mezzanine has a darker tone than their other albums, but it is there best album in my opinion. Mezzanine opens with Angel with its slow hip-hop beat as ethereal vocals and prominent bass envelop the song. The entire album has this hypnotic and laid-back atmosphere, while a variety of genres are sampled in each of the songs. The vocals range from singing to almost rapping. That is the essence of this album and much of the album shares these traits. (more…)
