Massive Attack Triple Shot Flashback.

This first video remains an iconic track that simply never gets old. Sung with feeling by Shara Nelson. The first few seconds of the video makes we wonder where the song’s journey will take us. It eventually does a great job capturing the vibe of a rough downtown street, with various characters intersecting the subject’s journey. A simple concept but so well executed. I also believe that at 2min.17sec. Massive Attack member Robert Del Naja aka 3D can be seen following her in a raincoat for the remainder of the video.

Another great song, dark, and mysterious. The video reflects this strange feeling, and almost feels like a zombie apocalypse at the end.

Perhaps my favourite video of the 3, this one contains elements of The Shining, Pulp Fiction, Barton Fink and takes place in a hotel, where all of our dark secrets come to light. The whole vibe has a definite David Lynch vibe to it, and it suits the song very well.
