A Massive Attack



It starts with New Agey keyboards before the drum solo with the bubbly synth beneath bursts and then, three minutes in, that 'Safe From Harm' bassline breaks.

Is it jazz? Is it rock? Is it.....prog????

It's 'kin massive, is what it is maaaan.

Billy Cobham - 'Stratus' (1973)

  1. Great track (although it sounds like I imagine seasickness would sound expressed through music) I've got it on several comps, but for some reason it took me an age to realise the MA connection
