    Bristol rap still sucks though - sorry lads
    What about the 3rd album, by far their finest and darkest IMO.

    I really tried to like portishead’s “third” but I just couldn’t get into it.
    I must be missing the point or something but to me it sounded more like a lacklustre experimental demo compared to the two previous lps.
    The tracks seemed to lack structure and the production to me sounds rushed and thrown together compared to the other albums which are meticulous and honed to perfection . Plus Beth’s new direction in singing just wasn’t for me , and the acoustic guitar stuff wasn’t either.
    Perhaps I need to give it more listens to get it or something , I hold the trio as one of my most respected and revered groups of all time , but I just can’t shake the feeling that this album didn’t get the time focus and effort that the other ones did.

    The third Portishead album was alright, but it lacked the sinister sexiness of the first 2 albums for me.

    Today's record. So glad that this came out on 12" because it's by far my favourite track by this guy:

    Elzhi - Deep
