Protection is the second studio album by English electronic music group Massive Attack, released on 26 September 1994 by Circa and Virgin Records. DJ Mad Professor remixed the album in 1995 under the name No Protection. Like most of Massive Attack's albums, the music often defies categorisation, ranging from R&B title track and Sly to hip hoprap Karmacoma and Eurochild to reggae-tinged synthpop Spying Glass to classical-influenced electronica instrumentals Weather Storm and Heat. Текст песни: This girl I know needs some shelter She dont believe anyone can help her Shes doing so much harm, doing so much damage But you dont want to get video of Massive Attack performing Protection from the album Protection.
