Third time unlucky....

I am, like many other people, a great portishead fan. I love both their other albums instantly as i turned them on. Third, is a strange box of music. It certainly is no Glory Box. The beats and the music are great, but i found Beth's voice, although still exceptional today, dragging, and quite draining at times. It was all a little depressing to me. It feels as if she was in another room and they just pasted her vocals over the beats without checking to see if the backing music and her vocals fitted in places. If you like strange strange portishead, or you are smacked up, this might be the album for you, but i found it really disappointing.

The Sound of Now!!

Brilliant! People who think this is a departure from the "real" Portishead are forgetting how relevant Dummy and Portishead were at the times of their release. Influence's from Kraftwerk, The Knife, Burial and every sci-fi/horror movie you've never seen. A must have for 08! Well done guys!!

Something different!

"machine gun" is an awesome track and has a tripping beat. if you like the haunting, mezmerising sounds of Australia's "paradise motel", you will be captivated by "third"! but it now!!!!
