Massive Attack: Protection (Virgin)
Ben Thompson, The Independent, September 1994
THEIR FIRST ALBUM, 1991's sumptuous Blue Lines, opened up a whole new imaginative world for British dance music, in the same way that De La Soul's Three Feet High And Rising did in America. It's lasted better too, perhaps because fewer others have dared to follow in Massive Attack's footsteps.
