Description: By the release of 1998's Mezzanine, critics were suddenly of the understanding that Massive Attack were one of the most important bands in the world. Bristol's original trip-hop pioneers had, on previous albums Blue Lines and Protection, fused turntable wizardry to the warmest of soul. With Mezzanine, however, the party had ended; revisiting the murky soundscapes so favoured by former partner and fellow Bristolian Tricky, the comeback single "Rising Son" muttering edgily about "cheap beer filled with crocodile tears", over the deepest bass.

"Music Television clearly had a profound effect on the development of my taste in music (it was pretty much my "babysitter" from 1995 to 1999"), since I found Massive Attack via their Teardrop-video while watching the channel. I can't deny finding the singing fetus somewhat disturbing, but I loved the song. After buying Mezzanine I started getting into the trip-hop genre. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fG8eQBSp9Ao"

""Tricky had split, and three years had passed since Massive Attack's last proper album, but Mezzanine returned the Bristol, England, collective to prominence. Cocteau Twins' Elizabeth Fraser was the designated chanteuse, and her icy voice stands out against the earthy backdrops of songs like "Teardrops."'"

"Teardrop Love, love is a verb Love is a doing word Fearless on my breath Listen to Teardrop Most covers of this song are pretty good but I especially love how Faulkner blends his vocals in the middle."
