Why do we like this?

Emerging from Bristol in the early nineties, Massive Attack were at the forefront of the trip-hop sounding emanating from the area. Their debut album, Blue Lines,was widely acclaimed, with "Unfinished Sympathy" one of the most popular songs from it.

Voted the "greatest song ever" by Radio 1 listeners in 1998, this song was heralded as revolutionary for it's use of traditionally classical instruments such as pianos and strings in what was a dance track.

Shara Nelson's haunting vocals add another layer of emotion to a track that's hardly short of feeling, and completed by choice scratching, this track was even covered by Tina Turner, who scored a French top ten hit with her version.

Massive Attack - Teardrop
Sounds like: Tricky, Portishead, UNKLE
