- TAV // Essential Listening -

Regarded as one of trip hop’s most crucial albums, this debut by English collective Massive
Attack was the blueprint for the genre’s then-emerging style. Although underpinned by hip-hop
elements, Blue Lines distinguished itself by recontextualising them through the lens of UK’s
underground club culture - imbuing elements of electronic music, breakbeat, dub and reggae.
The result was a revolutionary LP that came to define the Bristol sound. Stylish, sleek and
smooth - Massive Attack balanced diva-led jams and British rap upon a tightrope of groovy,
downtempo dance music. What Massive Attack accomplished with Blue Lines remains as
sophisticated today as it was over a few decades ago.
