Massive Attack live at The Olympia, Dublin
I’d hate to be a Massive Attack roadie. Not only do they have four vocalists, six banks of synths, live guitars, drums and percussion to worry about, but there’s a huge ticker-taping video screen to put up and take down every bleedin’ night.

Another A-list act returning to the scene after a notable absence – three whole years, in the Bristol band’s case. Dare we hope that they’ve spent this time creating something as mesmerizing as ‘Teardrop’ or ‘Unfinished Symphony’? Sadly ‘Live With Me’ doesn’t quite make that league, even though it’s as laidback as they come, with vocal goodness from folk/jazz legend Terry Callier and a whole string section to boot. But no, my crystal ball has already seen the future and says this won’t go down in history as one of their finest moments. Although, it’s on their forthcoming best of album, so technically, I’m already wrong.
