#391: Blue Lines by Massive Attack

5.19.2011


Blue Lines by Massive Attack (1991)

Favorite Track(s): "Unfinished Sympathy" was actually not half bad, thanks to the strings and "Hymn of the Big Wheel" was kind of nice.

Thoughts: (Pre-Listening) This is the last album standing between me and one by Roxy Music. To let you know how I'm feeling about this, I need to ask you a question: are you familiar with the score of Miss Saigon, the 1989 musical by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil? If not, feel free to skip to the next paragraph. If so, do you remember the song "Why God, Why?" That line is running through my head on a loop.

The last time we heard this group was not a great time. DO NOT WANT. Massive Attack, may this be the final time you grace this list. Or else.

(Post-Listening) I'm just going to leave this quote from Stuart Bailie's (glowing!) review here: "It sounded anxious and lost."
