What did they steal off Tricky? He gave Massive Attack some of the songs from Maxinquaye, because he hadn't finished the stuff he was doing for them before he left. That wasn't thievery or MA's fault..
He was part of the group, who's to say it was just Tricky's ideas? Either way, I've never noticed a direct rip-off, and I listen to both quite freqently, and they are pretty like minded artists so it's a little unfair to just say and assume they ripped him off. Especially as Blue Lines and Mezzanine are better than anything Tricky has done anyway IMO.
They're to say it was Tricky's ideas, more or less framework. Rob Del Naja has repeatedly said it in any interview I've seen when they are asked who inspires them or where the template comes from. They obviously have their own sound but I don't give them that much credit.
Blue Lines is great, Mezzanine also. I don't think any of them touch Maxinquaye. Just off the back of it being more revolutionary and taking into account the history between the bands/artists. But different strokes and all that.
