Albums I Like: Heligoland by Massive Attack

Though less subtle and textured than Massive Attack’s previous albums, Heligoland is perhaps the duo’s most haunting work. The album’s hollow vocals are both unwelcoming and hypnotic; though the songs are rather long, the album’s entrancing atmosphere makes it feel as if they go by in an instant. Though Blue Lines and Mezzanine will likely remain Massive Attack’s definitive works, this brooding and tense album follows close behind in the duo’s discography.
