You're not my eater, I'm not your food
Love you for God, love you for the Mother
Eat me in the space within my heart
Love you for God, love you for the Mother

Mother fountain or live or not at all

The most level, sunken chapel
Love you for God, love you for the Mother

All's there to love, only love

{#Cheers} the intro and bk ground sounds like sampling from some real early Manfred mann yep pretty sure it is / nice !
 
It's Manfred Mann's Earth Band (which is not "real early" in terms of his career) - I'm pretty sure the sample is from "Tribute".  Manfred Mann (the person) is credited on this album.

Handpicked and reused. No contradiction there ;)
Bjork and Massive Attack, some great sequence

{#Dance} "Outstanding"
My third child "danced" in his mother's womb to this track (and the rest of the album).  One of his and my favourite albums / bands.


One of my favorite Massive Attack tunes {#Roflol}
No comment other than Crap .. Boom Boom Boom ... only wish it will self implode.

It also works very well in a train, looking out. Especially when you start with Angel while the train leaves the station.
Unbelievably Godlike - but I repeat myself
I'm sitting here with my local meds, enjoying this ethereal ear-trip with my brand-spanking new Harman/Kardon SoundSticks, with sub-woofer definitely penetrating far more than my room, and ... lovin' it well!  Thanks!
Timeless
 
This song makes me want to dance around with my eyes closed.
yes!!
A masterpiece of trip-hop.  This cd wil be dug up 100,000 years from now and they will exclaim, in their way, holy shit I wish I was there.
Like the "Autumn Leaves" - influenced bass line.  Trippy too...

Where's my copy of this cd?  The rip is bad and I have to run it again.  But I can't find the CD. Not in the wall.  Did you borrow it? That's ok if you did, I just need it back for 5 minutes.
 
Sorry, dude, I totally forgot.  I'll drop it off at the post office this afternoon.

I agree 100%. This cd was in my player and I listened to it before bed every night for about 2 months straight. It helped me through a very tough time in my life & I love it still to this day.

That is one nasty-assed album cover.  {#Rolleyes}  {#Puke}

What makes us accept harsh, generalized criticisms from those we love? What complete bullshit. I'm separated from my wife for this very reason. I'm no longer going to accept any random element of my personality being criticized. Don't like my taste in shirts? Deal with it. Your opinion of me is none of my business. If you can't stop yourself, then I'll be moving on...

Perhaps you married the wrong person.  My wife loves this album.

I like this song but overall this CD leaves me rather indifferent.

Not sure what it is about this disc that so mesmerizing . . . :eyes: :eyes:
This is what codeine cough syrup would sound like if it were music. Not that that is a bad thing, in and of itself.

"Inertia Creeps" from this record at extremely high volume levels induces instant orgasms. Try it.
You should have showed her the cover. No CD with a stag beetle beastie on it can ever be considered boring. I mean just look at 'er. Wizzuvv_oz wrote:

All of them, actually. Seriously, IMO it's far too calculated and "produced" (as opposed to performed) for its own good. Blue Lines and Protection (and its brilliant dub by Mad Professor) are way better.
Regarding 'Blue Lines' I'm absolutely with you.
:sleep:
What. a. tune.
It's decent, but a bit sleep-inducing at this time of day.
One of my favorite albums of all time here.

Yeah, but it's really great lazy brainless annoying drone crap. :wink:
Oh god, here we go with the "painfully long drawn out female vocals and neurotic drum loop" set. Don't mind while I listen to something else for the next 4 songs.
as for the previous Bjork's track.... I think at mezzanine as the greatest M.A. album without doubts at all... mmm... this made me think that maybe the 1998 was the real last good year for the "trip-hop" movement....
C :chillpill: H :chillpill: I :chillpill: L :chillpill: L :cheers:
A perfect segue from Björk's "All is full of love!" :notworthy:
saw these guys in concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Worst concert I've seen the past 5 years. This stuff just doesn't translate so well into a live, albeit large, venue.
Is there a song on this album that isn't an 8 or above?

I'll bet they keep you in a cubicle in the back, far far away from any customers or phones...only your car likes you, Tony.
Ah, great song from one of the best records for :heartkiss: :hug: ever!
Aw darn. When I saw it on the playlist, I thought "Oh my God, someone covered the Beasts of Bourbon?!". Alas, no.

Yep, it's from their self-titled album, a song called "Tribute."

Just doesn't seem to work for me - armed only with a cup of tea. Something substantially stronger required I suspect - to enjoy this track properly? :chillpill:

Must've been black tar heroin that turned the milk black. Then they drank it and recorded this song. :sleep:

Nice! :D "Mezzanine" is one of my favorite discs of all time ('Angel', 'Teardrop', 'Inertia Creeps', 'Dissolved Girl'). I was a big fan of the Cocteau Twins in the 80s/early 90s, and I could listen to Elizabeth Fraser's voice any time. Classic. There's only one original member left in MA now (3D), and while there are definitely some good tracks on "100th Window", it lacks the character and consistency of "Mezzanine", IMHO. It's background music, it doesn't really grab you. So it's fitting that their current release is a movie soundtrack (anyone heard "Danny the Dog"?).
Please play "Inertia creeps" by them.... whole of Mezzanine is amazing...
9 am. Endless trance "music". Putting me back to sleep. In a bad way.
