Massive Unfinished Sympathy (Wild Bunch) 1991 (Oakenfold Mix)

Arguably the best 12" of the 90's, Massive Attack's 'Unfinished Sympathy' combined elements of soul, hip hop and orchestral strings to give an unprecedented sound which was simply fantastic. Shara Nelson's moving vocal performance on this track is enough to send shivers down anyone's spine. Great song, great record sleeve, great video, great album-seems to tick every box. Also the Oakenfold remix was as good as the original and they are both on a par for me. Truly breathtaking piece of music.
