Pitchfork wrote: “Blue Lines brought producers around to its unique vision.
By the time Massive released Protection three years later, the group’s renegade
approach had been copied enough times to become a full-on movement…
Blue Lines is still Blue Lines, and most of the world is still trying to catch up to it.”
Full review here. Score: 9/10.
Turn Up The Volume: A ground and sound-breaking
masterpiece. Trip-soul-hop-pop at its inventive best.
