John Morrison’s Culture Corner with host Raina Douris

When Massive Attack released their album Mezzanine in 1998, in a way, it fit right in – Electronic music was having a mainstream moment and Mezzanine rode that wave to become the band’s biggest record. But that doesn’t mean it sounded like anything else. On the next Culture Corner, World Cafe correspondent John Morrison talks about what sets this Massive Attack record apart and why it still matters 25 years later.
