CD (Item 519887) Virgin, 1994 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock


Strong second album from Massive Attack! Protection sets the stage with stunning one-two punch of the title track and "Karmacoma" – 13+ minutes of flawless, hypnotic trip hop with a strong sense of moody soul, thanks in the always impeccable (to this point, anyway) production and all the more wonderful thanks to some strong guest vocals by Tracey Thorn. If the opening couple tracks set the bar a little to high to be sustained to the end, there's still a lot to love here, and the other titles include "Weather Storm", "Spying Glass", "Better Things", "Eurochild", "Sly", "Heat Miser" and "Light My Fire".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

100th Window
Virgin, 2003. Used
The latest from the groundbreaking Bristol crew! The sound on this outing isn't as dark as the last two albums, but there's still the unmistakable Massive vibe, with a full, deep bass, dubby elements, hip-hop & jungle inflected beats and atmospheric touches that spawned scores of copycats. ... CD

Inspiration (Yoshihiro Okino, Ryota Nozaki, et al)

Sony (Japan), 2006. Used
A brilliant follow-up to the first Inspiration set – and like that one, a unique collection of Japanese-only grooves – picked, mixed, and produced by a team that includes contributions from Yukihiro Fukutomi, DJ Mitsu, Kyoto Jazz Massive, Jazztronik, and Kenji Sakajiri of Especial ... CD
Opaz (Japan), 1995. Used
Nice bit of modern soul stuff from Ray Haden's group Opaz. Sort of like Noel McKoy or Omar in that it's got a sort of modern R&B feel to it, and with that nice twist that the newer London soul artists have in their songwriting. A very big album here in Chicago with the steppers, and a good ... CD

Elizabeth Shepherd

Linus, 2014. Used

Go! Discs, 1994. Used
At this point, we hardly need to tell you what this is about. To many, a genre-defining period classic: haunting vocals, dark, spacey production, and beats so slow, you wonder if your turntable isn't busted. "Sour Times" was the one that put them over the top, and spawned too many ... CD
Geffen, 1995. Used
A mid 90s effort by this now-gone group – a blend of acid jazz type grooving with some of the post-Soul II Soul approaches to R&B that were fast becoming standard at the time. Donna Gardier sings lead vocals on all tracks, with an approach that's in the mode of Carleen Anderson or Caron ... CD
