"Listening to Massive Attack's debut album, Blue Lines, 21 years after its initial release is like reading an old William Gibson novel that describes the then-near future, which is now the present, with unsettling precision. Nearly every song offers a sound currently in use in music's taste-making leading edge."
- Miles Raymer, Pitchfork

"Massive Attack’s debut Blue Lines, 21 years after its 1991 release, still drips from speakers and seeps underneath your skin in into the blue veins that run from your heart. It’s both a beautiful and alarming phenomenon how an album can have a transformative effect, transcending sound and plunging itself directly into the psyche.”
- Paula Mejia, Consequence of Sound

This seminal album of trip hop from the Bristol-based group Massive Attack was originally released in 1991 and spawned hundreds of chill out compilations and minimalist hip hop imitators. As true fans of Massive Attack know, nothing comes close to the original, and this 2012 remastered version of their innovative debut allows listeners a fresh take on these hard-hitting, impassioned tracks.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
