"A trippy masterpiece - we'll still be listening to this in decades to come."
The Telegraph

"Massive Attack back to their best - the sound of a group at the very height of their power, flexing their ample muscle."
Uncut

"3D and Daddy G unveil stunning numbers that compare with anything in their back catalogue."
The Guardian

"Harshly scabrous and melodically seductive."
Will Self, The Sunday Times

"As long as they make albums as rich, textured and seductive as Heligoland, Massive Attack will remain one of our most fascinating, extraordinary bands."
BBC Music

"An inspired comeback and a colossal achievement all round."
The Fly

"Massive Attack still have the ability to fashion music of an unrivalled darkness, heartache and menace."
Esquire

Massive Attack's new album, Heligoland, features guest vocals from Damon Albarn, Hope Sandoval, Martina Topley-Bird, Guy Garvey and Tunde Adebimpe. Long time cohort Horace Andy makes a return alongside Massive Attack founding members Robert Del Naja and Grant Marshall. Damon also plays bass on ‘’Flat Of The Blade’ and keyboards on ‘Splitting The Atom’ while Portishead’s Adrian Utley plays guitar on ‘Saturday Come Slow’. The band also collaborated with DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy on selected tracks. The cover artwork features an original image by Robert Del Naja.

Over the last three years Robert Del Naja has written and produced soundtracks for a number of films and documentaries, including ‘Trouble In The Water’, ’44 Inch Chest’, ‘In Prison My Whole Life’ and ‘Gomorra’, the latter for which he won the David Di Donatello Award for Best Song.

This year Massive Attack won the Outstanding Contribution to British Music Award at the Ivor Novello Awards.
