Massive Attack released its debut album, Blue Lines, in 1991, essentially inventing the trip hop genre. The British band’s music is a blend of hip-hop and electronica with a dash of soul. It’s quite an adventurous mix.
While this sort of music isn’t exactly my cup of tea, I totally see the appeal. Unlike heavy metal, exemplified by yesterday’s featured Metallica album, I find this interesting and ground-breaking and actually listenable.
