About

- TAV // Essential Listening -

Anyone experiencing Massive Attack’s third studio effort for the first time instantly imagines the
album soundtracking their life’s most pivotal and dramatic moments. It’s certainly no wonder that
Mezzanine has gone on to soundtrack some of the most memorable scenes in film and
television history. Every song on this LP feels cinematic on both the conscious and
subconscious levels. Conceptualised by their lead Robert Del Naja who wanted to create
something darker than the Bristol crew’s previous works, Mezzanine marks a noticeable
departure from the jazzy, laidback sound of Blue Lines and Protection. Anchored by classic
tracks such as “Teardrop”, featuring Elizabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins, this album’s bleak
and blurry trip hop tones invariably embeds itself in the listener’s echoic memory.
