Don't let the name fool you, Massive Attack doesn't make the kind of music you'd expect the guy from Aphex Twin to make if he was on crack (or is he already?). No, Massive Attack is actually the opposite of what you'd expect. Perhaps "Gentle Breeze" would be a more appropriate monicker. A lot of people seem to correlate them to Portishead, and I can't say that I disagree with the comparison. However, to be fair you have to at least throw in a pinch of Bjork to the mix. Whatever way you put it, Massive Attack is part electronica, part relaxation, and just what the doctor ordered when it comes to my musical tastes.

If you're curious and looking for something new to throw at your aural palate, either listen to the angel on your shoulder and pick up one of Massive Attack's albums at your local record store, or listen to the devil and head on over to isoHunt.
