Headz
Compilation album
Released 1994 (1994)
Label Mo'Wax

Headz is a compilation released by the record label Mo'Wax.[1] It was released as a 3 LP and as a 2-CD set with artwork by 3D from Massive Attack. It was one of the first albums to popularise the term trip hop even though it described itself as "Abstract Hip Hop". It featured early tracks by artists such as DJ Shadow and U.N.K.L.E. and even featured a track by Autechre, even though they were better known as an IDM act at the time.

It was followed a couple of years later by Headz 2A and Headz 2B which were two double CD compilations released at the same time.[2]

In 2015, Fact Magazine ranked Headz at number 30 and Headz 2 at number 7 on its list of "The 50 Best Trip-Hop Albums of All Time." [3]
