Massive teardrops. Of joy.

With the recent release of the BRILLIANT fifth LP from beloved Massive Attack, humble blogger is filled with teardrops of joy.

But that only means digging into all those old M.A. records, like 1998’s Mezzanine, which happens to be one of my favorite of the UK duo’s efforts. Particularly track “Teardrop”, an absolutely foreboding, ambient, minimalist bit of electronica–the kind of stuff that absolutely gives Massive Attack their well-deserved praise.

Never one to shy from a chance to hear the brilliantly haunting vocals of Elizabeth Fraser (Cocteau Twins), “Teardrop” is no exception; she kills it.

And as we get a smattering of slush from the sky today, it seems proper.

Check out what P&C wrote about 2010’s Heligoland, gander away. This is certainly shaping up to be an excellent year in tunes; the album, absolutely massive, will find a slot in my top 10, methinks.
