Famously written at a time of high tensions within the band, Mezzanine, upon its release in 1998, nonetheless was a phenomenal success, topping the charts in the UK and several other countries. With its iconic singles “Teardrop,” later used for the soundtrack of the “House” TV drama, “Angel,” and “Risington,” the album showed an evolution in Massive Attack’s sound – from pure trip-hop to incorporate elements of new wave, dub, and rock, taking the band more in the direction of electronica. It also marked a distinct change in tone. While the band’s previous albums were laid-back and jazz-influenced, “Mezzanine,” introduced a new element of darkness, with atmospheric, heavily textured sounds layered in the songs to create a bleak, claustrophobic sonic landscape.
Today, the album is widely regarded as one of the best and most significant of the decade, ranked by Q magazine on the list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever and on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time,
