Twelve years later and Mezzanine still sounds amazing. Massive Attack has not been able to top that album since then.

Are you kiddin me? Heligoland is right up there! Paradice circus, love you girl, atlas air , splitting the atom, psyche are fantastic songs even though nothing ever could beat Angel or unfinished sympathy.

Solid performance, but strangely it didn't translate to television. It was a great mini show and I'm saddened that the other songs that were performed weren't recorded. Great to finally see them on network television.

Yeah I'm surprised they didn't air the other performances with Horace Andy or Daddy G. "Splitting The Atom and Girl" and "I Love You" were pretty amazing.

I saw Massive Attack at the House of Blues here in Boston on May 13th. It was my 3rd time seeing them and it was by far the best show. Glad to see Daddy G. back in the saddle. The entire set was amazing and the crowd gave them a 5 minute ovation. I have been listening to Mezzanine at least once a week since it came out and it never gets stale. This group is like Hendrix, or The Clash to me.
Sorry I missed them on Kimmel.

that was a weird late night performance. lol. play a hit from an album from like 10 years ago. really quiet song. kinda performance art by them to do that. so different than most late night performances.

Nothing like promoting your new album with a B-side and a stillborn take on the (lucrative!) theme from House minus Liz Fraser. Oh well. That's America, then!

>Oh well. That's America, then!

yup, that's how it works here. 50 bucks says that kimmel's bookers said "ok, you can do the show, but ONLY if you play teardrop."

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.
