Mar 18, 2016Pretty much everything that helped the band make a name for itself is on display for these four songs--the simmering tension of title track, the sample-happy soundtrack for urban decay on the opener “Dead Editors”, the hot and steady boil of “Voodoo in My Blood”, and the morose single “Take It There” featuring the return of Tricky.

Jul 30, 2016A long awaited studio return of the Massive Attack. What can I say? Good to have them back.
The opening track - "Dead Editors" featuringA long awaited studio return of the Massive Attack. What can I say? Good to have them back.
The opening track - "Dead Editors" featuring Roots Manuva sounds quite fresh and dark. The lyrics are hypnotising. The flow is damn good. The music is somewhat paranoid and chaotic.
The second track - "Ritual Spirit" featuring Azekel is the only one I have a major problem with here. I just can't get it. I can see where they were going to with this, but I really couldn't enjoy it.
The third track - "Voodoo In My Blood" featuring Young Fathers initially was at the same level as the previous one for me until it got stuck in my head for a day and I wanted to jump to it like crazy.
The fourth and final track - "Take It There" featuring Tricky. Well, what can you say? It's Tricky and Massive Attack on the same track! It's just plain sexy and sinister. The track is building momentum towards the end just to leave you at that piano loop again and it feels damn good.
Overall a good little release, which has some flaws. Though it does one thing perfectly good: makes you wish for a full length LP if you're a Massive Attack fan.… Expand
