Massive Attack's debut album, Blue Lines came out in April 1991, so you'll have to forgive me as I'm nearly 6 months behind on writing this post to mark its 25th anniversary.

Every band's got em'. Those songs that are not on any of their albums or singles. Songs that for whatever reason have'nt got any kind of release. Fans may have heard them from the band in question experimenting with it live or having it featured on the soundtrack to whatever. Massive Attack ain't no different. They've got some pretty listenable tunes, if I do say so, that are'nt anyway to found anywhere in record stores or on iTunes. I've picked out ten of them for this poll along with a quick background to the track and what I think is the best sounding audio we have of it to date.
Here's a very informative article from Uncut Magazine published in February 2010 about the genesis of that most seminal of Massive Attack tracks - Unfinished Sympathy. And yes, it's my favourite Massive Attack track of all time (on most days anyway). At least that's not as cliche as saying it's Teardrop.
