You know, when I first discovered Massive Attack in the early 90s, I used to proclaim that those guys were going to be the next Pixies -- the band that seems very niche at the time, and not apparently that successful, but then every single person who bought the album was going to start a band, and in fifteen years everyone was going to sound like them.
Then trip-hop suddenly just vanished, and its angry cousin drum-and-bass suddenly just vanished, and I thought, well, I sure called that wrong.
And now here we are, sixteen years later, and I just saw a show with 2,800 other people by a band whose singer sounds exactly like Tricky and whose entire album is basically a cover of the song Protection.
(Not that there's anything wrong with that.)
They put on a good show. But as expected, Warpaint was the reason to go.
