submeat's top 100 tracks of 2003: songs to download and love

#88 "Special Cases," Massive Attack featuring Sinéad O'Connor (Virgin)
Rather than her absurdly-titled final album/live set, I'd prefer to think of this as Sinéad's farewell - and a fitting one it is, as 3-D fit her classically haunting, unforgettable vox into a Massive Attack track as claustrophobic as anything from Mezzanine. The phrase "like a glove" works quite nicely here, thank you. If you've heard (and liked) the Attack's darker side, you'll love this. If not, I can't help you. The strings swell ominously and Sinéad goes into the ether.
