Introducing: Massive Attack

For many of you, Massive Attack is probably not a new name (if it is, you may recognize the instrumental portion of their song "Teardrop" as the theme song for House). I just recently purchased their third studio album Mezzanine and I am in love with their music. The British duo, consisting of Robert Del Naja and Daddy G, helped to popularize the "trip hop" genre of music. Trip hop is a fairly downtempo electronic music that originated in Britain and has been around for about two decades now.

Massive Attacked blasted into the music scene with their debut album Blue Lines in 1991 and have been going strong ever since. Incidentally, both Blue Lines and Mezzanine were included in Rolling Stones's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

I have many favorite Massive Attack songs, but the one that I will leave with you is called "Angel." It's a haunting, eerie tune that creeps into your soul and makes you shiver. Enjoy.
