Bristol, England (1988 – present)

Massive Attack are a group which formed in Bristol, England in 1988. The group currently consists of Robert “3D” Del Naja and Grant “Daddy G” Marshall. Third member Andy “Mushroom” Vowles left the group in 1999. To date, the band has released five albums: “Blue Lines” (1991), “Protection” (1994), “Mezzanine” (1998), “100th Window” (2003), and “Heligoland” (2010).

The group are considered to be progenitors of the trip hop genre. Their debut album, Blue Lines was released in 1991, with the single “Unfinished Sympathy” reaching the charts and later being voted the 10th greatest song of all time in a poll by The Guardian. 1998’s Mezzanine, containing “Teardrop”, and 2003’s 100th Window charted in the UK at number 1. Both Blue Lines and Mezzanine feature in Rolling Stones list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
The group has won numerous music awards throughout their career, including a Brit Award—winning Best British Dance Act, two MTV Europe Music Awards, and two Q Awards They have released 5 studio albums that have sold over 11 million copies worldwide.

In the nineties, the trio became known for often not being able to easily get along with one another and working increasingly separately. Andy Vowles (Mushroom), who had once thought of himself as the trio’s musical director, acrimoniously left Massive Attack in late 1999, after an ultimatum from the other two members to end the group immediately if he did not.

    Поддержу мнение товарища SoulIter. MA, Tricky и Portishead - три разные(!) группы со "своей атмосферой", каждая из которых на сцене выступает по-своему. Зачем обливать дриснёй музыкантов, с которых каждый из нас (в большей степени) начинал своё знакомство с этим жанром? Наоборот, лучше порадуйтесь (те, кто развёл срач в рупоре), что эти три Бристольские(!) группы могли и могут как-то отличаться друг от друга. Надоел трип-хоп - послушайте электронщину: Daft Punk, Gesaffelstein или Brodinski (список можете сами дополнить). Надоела электронщина - слушайте джаз, фанк, математику, блюз, соул на худой конец...или любой другой жанр, ёпт! ;D

    нельзя в здравом уме сравнивать укурка Трики, с одним вменяемым и отнюдь не великим дебютником в дискографии и МА. А говорить о том, что МА отдали предпочтение коммерции так и вообще смешно. Да, 2 последних альбома у них крайне слабые, а компенсируют они это отличным живым звучанием. Кто был хоть раз на их концерте, тот поймет. Мэссив Атак один из лучших коллективов звучащих живьем, чего совсем нельзя сказать о безалаберных выступлениях Трики Кида.
