The Completely Ignored Podcast

S4, E1: Heligoland by Massive Attack

February 13, 2018

The Completely Ignored podcast returns for a fourth season with a focus on 10 "Albums of the 2000s". Kicking things off is Massive Attack and its 2010 full-length Heligoland. Cam and Sammy both gush over the uniqueness and chill-AF excellence of this band. talk about how the infrequency of their music is a strength and ponder whether the "pile on the guest vocalists" approach had an influence over Damon Albarn for the third and fourth Gorillaz records. The show wraps with a quick chat about new tunes from MGMT and a less-quick chat about the passing of The Fall's Mark E. Smith, how a mere mortal can tackle The Fall's back catalogue plus reasons why Smith never got much credit for the LOLz he put into the tunes he wrote.
