Editorial Reviews

The Band were Approached Personally by Luc Besson and the Film's Director, Louis Leterrier, to Record the Soundtrack. Working Over an 11-week Period, the Band Set Out to Create an Instrumental Soundtrack which Captures Both the Fast-paced Action and Reflective Sadness of Unleashed (Also Known as Danny the Dog). The Soundtrack is Made Up of 21 Pieces of Music, which Run in Chronological Order Throughout the Film, with Each Piece Depicting a Certain Scene, from the Intensity of Tracks Such as "Atta' Boy", "Simple Rules", "Collar Stays On", "You've Had a Dream" to the Haunting Dub and Ambience of "Sam's Tunes", "Right Way to Hold a Spoon" and "Everybody's Got a Family", the Soundtrack Demonstrates Perfectly the Band's Gift for Capturing the Intricate Mood of Film.

I must admit that I picked up this CD with some hesitation. I've been a Massive Attack fan for a number of years now. I knew this release would be different (as all MA albums are), which is the reason for my hesitation. Upon hearing the first track, I knew I would love this CD, and I do! MA slams you against the wall with "Opening Title", then one short clip after another they keep you there. Then it slows a little with "Sam". Then once again there back at it. The dark, trancelike sound they are so famous for is all here. I can't help but be reminded of the rythymic sound of "Mezzanine", the album most collectors have anyway. This release is a must-have for any Massive Attack affectionado. This album is a Soundtrack, and there are no vocals anywhere; which I think is a refreshing change. As there are 21 tracks - each track is short - some under a minute. However, this doesn't affect the continuity of the album, as each track is merged with another in some places. MA fans... Go Get It!

This is not typical Massive Attack, which is not to say it's bad: far from that. "Danny the Dog", the soundtrack recorded by the band to a Hong Kong-based production by French movie maestro Luc Besson, is a great album, one that definitely exceeds "100th Window" (and also, it must be said, a first time for Besson: where he does not collaborate with longtime musical partner Eric Serra -they haven't worked together since 1999).

For lovers of the "soundtrack genre" (if there is such a thing), this work falls a little to the left of Craig Armstrong (not surprisingly, since he worked with the band in the past). But, with the exception of the more urban tracks, it reminds of the music to "Long Walk Home" by Peter Gabriel too. In general, it comes across more like the music to a Michael Mann movie than one produced by the director of "The Big Blue", "The Professional" or "The Fifth Element".

Having been released in time for the holiday season, this is one great soundtrack to wrap up 2004, and certainly one deserving a special space... good to be disected with headphones, and I particularly at night. Rain, cheese and wine are up to you. The music comes loaded with enough spirits.

After the not-so-well-received "100th Window" this soundtrack comes as a pleasant addition to Massive Attack's awesome discography.

Packed with (predictably)doomy and deliciously dark atmospheres one can only await the film with anticipation. This is seriously good music and naturally one of the better soundtracks released in recent time.

If i've got it correct, Daddy G wasnt involved with this album (allthough he has released a great solo album in Europe just last month). But regardless of who was involved from the M.A crew,"Danny the Dog" has all the tell-tale signs characteristic of all their releases. Dubby doominess and ingenious backup melodies that make all the pieces blend eventually in to create one big soundscape that intimidates.

Massive Attack belong to a very special elite of groups or musicians whose music is impossibly difficult to get tired of.
This soundtrack is definitely an essential must-have for the fans of the group but it will undoubtedly become a trigger force for the group to be discovered by those who have miraculously still not detected them.

in the massive attack-appreciation community there is a sort of disdain for the post-mezzanine massive attack, being as only one of the three original members is present and now there's this neil davidge person too, who we don't think much of.

though 100th window is regarded as a reasonably good album, (not a classic, just reasonably good) that is only grudgingly, as those of us who have listened from the beginning have a hard time acknowledging it as massive.

but if we can forget for a moment the absence of Daddy and Mushroom, and look at massive as the innovative music entity that they always have been, we can also recall a bit of the same attitude with protection after blue lines. and then mezzanine blew us out of the water.

danny the dog is by far no mezzanine.

BUT it is a departure from the previous work of massive

yes, of course partly because it is a soundtrack.

but if you listen to it just as the latest work of massive attack, you will find that they have continued to do what they have always done - which is come at each new album with a drastically different sound.

extremely good mood music. all instrumental being a film score. inspiring to write to, both good to ignore and immerse oneself in.

i like it better than 100th window.

i would count it as one of their classics.

definitely worth picking up.

I got this cd for Christmas and have not stopped listening to it. I can't fully compare this to Massive's other releases because it's for a movie soundtrack, and it sounds like a soundtrack, the way the tracks are structured. Don't expect vocal cameos and song bridges because there are none. But you can still tell this is Massive Attack post-Protection. Not their best but still intruiging and great for chilling at home or in the car. This is darkly atmostpheric and the tracks tell a story on their on, with a few striking surprises that grab you here and there. You can just imagine what type of scene or action sequence may go on with each track, as the song title may give us a hint of the story in this Jet Li movie. Lets hope the movie is just as go as this soundscape.
