If you were hoping Massive Attack might take a thrash metal detour for their new material you’ll be disappointed, but if you like their brand of vague menace ”Splitting The Atom” should satisfy.

It reminds me of The Specials, if The Specials ever whispered rapey threats in your ear down a dark alley at night. It has a simple, nagging hook you kind of don’t want to end, and which will probably be used to soundtrack someone OD’ing on ketamine on a cop drama near you soon. Hurrayzies!
