Air/Massive Attack

I like Royksopp, Lemon Jelly, Groove Armada, The Avalanches, Daft Punk and others so thought I would start listening to Air and Massive Attack.

Can anyone recommend an album for each to start off with please?

Thanks.

Yeah, I'd go with Moon Safari as well- Talisman is a superb track

As for Massive Attack, I'd probably go fpr Mezzanine...

Another vote for Mezzanine and Moon Safari here.

Both top quality albums.

For Air it simply has to be Moon Safari.

If only for Unfinished Sympathy. Gives me a lump in my throat everytime I hear it.

For Air, Moon Safari is definitely good.

For Massive Attack I like Unfinished Sympathy but would go for Mezzanine as the album. Its got some really moody atmospheric music on it that grows on you the more you listen to it.

Just popped down to HMV and picked up Moon Safari and Premiers Symptomes from Air as they were only £6.99 and £4.99 respectively. Have no idea what Premiers Symptomes is like but Moon Safari is excellent so thanks for the tip!

Will use CD-WOW for Massive Attack.

Can anyone please list all of the Air and Massive Attack albums in order of release?

Google "Air Disgography" & "Massive Attack Discography" at a guess

I thought their last one sounded a little like Pink Floyd at times. Is it only me who thinks that?:confused:

I prefer Mezzanine to Blue Lines, Unfinished Sympathy is a very good song though, but the rest of Blue Lines isnt as impressive.
