Great record here, hard for me to believe a record like this was made in 1991. Looking forward to digging into more of Massive Attack's work

A surprisingly spiritual album. Try listening during a sunrise or sunset.

Clearly the formative album for the sound of trip hop. I appreciate the scope of ambition displayed in this album but the sound is very formative and is not as impressive as the sound they would refine on Mezzanine. The beats still sound fresh in tying together a number of musical styles yet the lyrics strike me as a bit lame and the chopping and changing between soul and rap singing leaves me a bit cold. I respect it from an historic perspective but I am unlikely to return to it often. Unfinished Sympathy is a classic and rises above all other tracks.

birth of the trip-hop genre! a pioneering piece of work, this gem doesn't have a single track that isn't great. i love how the whole thing is unmistakably british as well.

one of the best debuts of the 90s, easily stands with the likes of supreme talent such as portishead & björk.

I'm not a massive dance fan but this album is just stunning. A superb chill out album featuring superb songs such as, unfinished sympathy, safe from harm, and, one love. A great record, an early nineties classic and one of those important albums that can reach out to non dance fans. Excellent.

Top quality debut, not my usual type of music as I'm not into rap really but Massive Attack are a huge exception.

Love every song and in my top twenty albums ever.

An absolutely hypnotic album that just sucks you in each listen. Each song has it's own charm and place on the album my personal favorites being "Five Man Army" and "Lately". The impact of this album is huge considering when it was released (1991!!!!) and it still holds up in most regards. The beats are great, the vocals complement each song, and the album never drags. This album is easily among my all time favorites.
