20th anniversary reissue of Massive Attack’s double-platinum album featuring the original album re-mastered + an album of previously unreleased dub remixes by the Mad Professor.
Widely hailed as their masterpiece - and voted 15th 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 Banshee’s '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 48pp hardback book featuring photos from Nick Knight that show the development of the striking cover imagery.
There's also an additional 32pp 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).
