The discography of British trip hop group Massive Attack consists of five studio albums, three compilation albums, five remix albums, one soundtrack album, four extended plays, eighteen singles and twenty-seven music videos. The group were founded in 1988 by musicians Robert "3D" Del Naja, Grantley "Daddy G" Marshall, and Andrew "Mushroom" Vowles in Bristol, England. Prior to the formation of Massive Attack, all three were members of British sound system The Wild Bunch.

Massive Attack's debut album Blue Lines was released in 1991, and was a pioneering force in the forming of the fusion genre dubbed trip hop.[1] Blue Lines peaked at #13 on the UK Albums Chart, and was certified Double Platinum in the United Kingdom. The album spawned four singles, three of which charted in the top 100 of the UK Singles Chart. In 1994, Massive Attack released their second album, Protection, which peaked at #4 in the UK. In 1998, the group released their third album, Mezzanine, which peaked at #1 in the UK and Australia, and was the group's first release to chart in the United States. 100th Window was released in 2003, peaking at #1 in the UK and three other countries.

In 2006, Massive Attack released Collected, a compilation of the group's singles and music videos. The compilation charted in seven countries, and was certified platinum in the UK.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ "Butterfly Caught" was deemed ineligible to enter the UK Singles Chart by the Official Charts Company, as it exceeded the maximum track length for a release to be considered a single; it did, however, peak at number one on the UK Budget Albums Chart.[47]
