Heligoland is the fifth studio album by English electronic music duo Massive Attack, released on 8 February 2010 by Virgin Records. Named after a German archipelago, it was their first studio album in seven years, following 100th Window (2003). It has been certified Gold in the United Kingdom.
Until 2003's 100th Window, each Massive Attack album had been a discrete record, stylistically distinct and mostly unconnected to what had gone before it (even if it included the same vocalists). Heligoland marks a return to departures. The sound of Massive Attack circa 2010 has some similarities to what the group has done in the past, but overall, this represents a radical shift in music-making

Heligoland, 100th Window. This album is not going to be liked by all fans of Massive Attack, or at least not right away. The depth of music of Blue Lines or Protection, or the intensity of Mezzanine seems to be lacking here, although probably everyone will notice that the music is stronger that anything we have heard from Massive Attack in the last 12 years.
Heligoland- the first non-soundtrack Massive Attack album in seven years and the first with Daddy G back on board in 12- misses that quality. Last fall's Splitting the Atom EP offered a couple of warning signs that reappear on this album.
Massive Attack - 100th Window Five years is perhaps a long time to wait for a seminal band like Massive Attack to release an album, but as previous efforts have shown, their releases are always the work of a group of musicians who are unwilling to settle within a mould. Admiringly evolving their various influences into something other than the staple genre of trip hop, which they undeniably lent a hand in pioneering, their new selection ‘100th Window’ grows beyond to become a beautifully dark cauldron of silent electronica.
