Products / Massive Attack - Blue Lines
[Trip hop] Some music really does sound like the city its from. And, on occasion, typifies the place of its origin. In the case of Massive Attack, and in particular this album, that is the case. They couldn’t sound more Bristol if they tried. Growing out of a “sound system”, the record is urbane in a very British way. But it also celebrates the diversity of the city, caked in the low and earth rumbling elements of dub and reggae, along with smatterings of funk and even dancehall. Highlight track: 'Unfinished Sympathy'
