Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-05-15This is Portishead’s first record in eleven years, and it was worth the wait. The album is inventive while remaining true to their sound; the haunting yet sweet vocals from Beth Gibbons with beautifully dark and fuzzy backdrops. This album is unconventional in so many ways. Extremely raw, dirty, and at times a bit sloppy. Some changes to their sound include decreased electronic beats and turntablism. On Third you’ll find acoustic drums with tons of effects added to them. It’s terrifying, twisted, ferocious yet dreamy as only Portishead can do. Reviewed By: LaRae WYCE Programmer
