Unfinished Sympathy - Massive Attack
[ Blue Lines ]
Bring the 90’s back.
This song is extraordinary, the perfect mixture of melancholia and optimism - a hallmark of Massive Attack. Its transportive sonic quality and lush string arrangement, never fails to summon a bit of “mist” to my eyes. The propellant vocals supplied by Shara Nelson are nothing short of iconic. Every time I listen to it, I feel open, limitless and inspired. The music video isn’t too bad either.
If only Tricky had stayed with Massive … *sigh*
