My cousin, CC (sweet little thing that she is), hooked me up with the Massive Attack singles box set. I haven't gone through it all, but it seems pretty cool. I have to admit to being disappointed by the "Angel" remixes, as that's my favorite track. The remixes simply don't have that feeling of dread and impending doom that the original has. I'm posting a few of the other mixes that I've checked out. I'm guessing the "Eno" mix refers to Brian Eno, but I'm not entirely sure. I'll probably need to do a little research on that.
As mentioned in a previous post, CC and I saw Massive Attack at this year's Coachella festival. Sad to say, they were pretty dull, although I'm sure their live show could be really cool. A comparable band I've seen is Portishead, and I thought Beth Gibbons held the stage pretty well. Perhaps that's the difference, though. Massive Attack have a few different vocalists and guest collaborators, while Gibbons was the primary vocalist for Portishead. Anyways, that doesn't change the fact that the Massive Attack albums ("Blue Lines", "Protection", "Mezzanine", and "100th Window") are good and worth seeking out. There are a couple soundtracks they've done ("Danny The Dog", and "Bullet Boy") as well as a "greatest hits" type compilation ("Collected"). They also have one of the best band names around, I think.
