Make up your own mind !

Heard a few bad things said about this album . But after hearing Colin Murray plug it on Radio One I decieded to give it a try . A great album overall , a few fillers sure but tracks like The Rip , We Carry On are hauntingly beautiful . Machine Gun is also a stand out track . If your a fan of Portishead give it a try but expect to be challanged , if you enjoy Ambient and haunting music also try this album you may be well surprised .

Serious music

At last, amongst all the dross that floats like petals on the wind, a serious album. I was not a Portishead fan, but heard Magic Doors when in an HMV (full marks). I bought the album, listened and thought 'what on earth was that?' I listened again, and, like a Radiohead album, it slowly revealed itself.

Buy this, listen a few times, and you will learn to love it (possibly not the best seduction soundtrack in the world, but you get my drift). Superb.

Not a first listen CD

I am a Portishead fanatic as is one of my best friends we litened to Roseland NYC when we shared a house a few years ago & we both agree it is not an instant I love it disc but after a few plays it starts to shine ! It is nice to find a " group/band " who do not sell out after a couple of CD,s ! It still has the Portishead sound ....... Superb after a while

Portishead may not have invented trip-hop, but they were among the first to popularize it, particularly in America. Taking their cue from the slow, elastic beats that dominated Massive Attack's Blue Lines and adding elements of cool jazz, acid house, and soundtrack music, Portishead created an atmospheric, alluringly dark sound. The group wasn't as avant-garde as Tricky, nor as tied to dance traditions as Massive Attack; instead, it wrote evocative pseudo-cabaret pop songs that subverted their conventional...
