Rolling Stone - 5/13/99, p.79Included in Rolling Stone's "Essential Recordings of the 90's."
Rolling Stone - 4/6/95, p.643.5 Stars - Very Good - "...this English dance-pop outfit...delivers brilliant body music that doesn't neglect the brain. Cool, sexy stuff, it smoothly fuses dub, club and soul, grounding its grace in sampled hip-hop beats..."
Spin - 2/95, pp.77-78Satisfactory - "...the dark depressive flipside to Soul II Soul's sunny, self-determining optimism. The beats are even slower, the grooves more contemplative than propulsive, the arrangements... influenced by METAL BOX-era P.I.L....The songs rarely allow for emotional release..."
Alternative Press - 7/95, p.106Ranked #93 in AP's list of the 'Top 99 of '85-'95' - "...PROTECTION return[s] Massive to their reggae roots...Thundering bass echoe[s] beneath percolating hip-hop beats and smooth soul grooves...Unlike that of increasingly cartoonish gangstas, Massive's might [is] no media pose..."
Vibe - 2/95, p.88"...well couched in the sound-system ethic....PROTECTION is a weird piece of work that fits right into the defining mantra of British dance music...A surreal forging of dub, hip hop, soul, and random bugged-out elements..."
New York Times (Publisher) - 1/6/96, p.C16Included on Neil Strauss' list of the Top 10 Albums of '95 - "...full of loops, echoes, ghostly voices and the conviction that space is as important as sound..."

NME (Magazine) - 9/24/94, p.498 - Excellent - "...Rolling pianos, soft handclaps and a quiet little bass noodle: odd and very grown-up, but cinematically sexy..."
