Remastered Super Deluxe Edition Of '98 Landmark Album!
Pink & Orange Vinyl 3LP Box Set!
Includes Previously Unheard Mad Professor Remixes!


Widely hailed as their masterpiece, and voted #15 in Q Magazine's 100 Greatest British Albums Ever (2000), Mezzanine saw the band move away from the 'trip-hop' sound they had helped define to embrace rock and electronica. Mezzanine was remastered by Tim Young at Metropolis who has worked with the band for over twenty years.

The Mad Professor remixes were originally intended to be released on a Mad Professor Mezzanine remix album – as the band had done with previous album Protection (No Protection) – yet in the end only a number of his remixes were issued as single b-sides.

All 8 of the Mad Professor remixes included here are previously unreleased and include his dub mixes of 2 tracks not originally featured on Mezzanine but from the same period – "Metal Banshee" – a dub version of "Superpredators" which was a cover of Siouxie and the Banshees' "Metal Postcard" – and "Wire", a track they recorded for the soundtrack of the film Welcome to Sarajevo.

As per the original release, the artwork is by Hingston studios who have worked with Robert Del Naja from the band – the 3LP super-deluxe takes the form of a 48-page hardback book featuring photos from Nick Knight that show the development of the striking cover imagery + an additional 32-page booklet which is a new edition of the art-book Fitting In which Del Naja originally issued in 2000 (only 50 of which were ever available to buy).

"Increasingly ignored amidst the exploding trip-hop scene, Massive Attack finally returned in 1998 with Mezzanine, a record immediately announcing not only that the group was back, but that they'd recorded a set of songs just as singular and revelatory as on their debut, almost a decade back. It all begins with a stunning one-two-three-four punch: 'Angel,' 'Risingson,' 'Teardrop,' and 'Inertia Creeps.' Augmenting their samples and keyboards with a studio band, Massive Attack open with 'Angel,' a stark production featuring pointed beats and a distorted bassline that frames the vocal (by group regular Horace Andy) and a two-minute flame-out with raging guitars. 'Risingson' is a dense, dark feature for Massive Attack themselves (on production as well as vocals), with a kitchen sink's worth of dubby effects and reverb. 'Teardrop' introduces another genius collaboration -- with Elizabeth Fraser from Cocteau Twins -- from a production unit with a knack for recruiting gifted performers. The blend of earthy with ethereal shouldn't work at all, but Massive Attack pull it off in fine fashion. 'Inertia Creeps' could well be the highlight, another feature for just the core threesome. With eerie atmospherics, fuzz-tone guitars, and a wealth of effects, the song could well be the best production from the best team of producers the electronic world had ever seen." - AllMusic
