Mezzanine is the third studio album by English trip-hop group Massive Attack, originally released in 1998 on Virgin Records. The band's most successful commercial outing,'Mezzanine' went on to sell over 4 million copies, and win the Q Award for 1998's Best Album. Produced by Neil Davidge,'Mezzanine' showed once again that despite a rapidly changing trip-hop scene, Massive Attack could not be ignored. Hits like,'Angel,"Risingson' and 'Teardrop'- which make up the powerhouse beginning to the album - have been heard across a variety of media, including movies, television shows and video games. Another of 'Mezzanine"s many claims to fame include that it was the first full album available for legal download on Massive Attack's website. Massive Attack consistently pushes the envelope with their revelatory songs - myriad mixing effects, fuzzy guitars, eerie vocals - and 'Mezzanine' is a shining example of the group's enduring creativity.
