    emotion-less and boring. There is no connection with the two first records, Blue lines and Protection. I think Massive attack is dead.

    This album is absolutely horrendous, I went in search of a chorus and 74 minutes and one totally useless extra track later, I found none. NONE. Consider this massive attack's slap to their fans' shocked, appalled faces. This is an absolute shame.

  1. The naysayers do not understand. Their expectations hamstring them.... Like the glass sculptures featured in the artwork it is precise, transparent, dangerously fragile, and ominously lit. 100th Window is a masterpiece of its kind.
  2. If there's one misstep on 100th Window, it's that [Sinead O'Connor's] talent and her range are underused.

    While its hardly an overwhelming masterpiece like Blue Lines or Protection, it still stands head and shoulders above most everything else. [Mar 2003, p.95]
