5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite album of 2008., 9 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Third (Audio CD)
Since it is now December, it seems unlikely that anything else will be released before the end of the year that will top this. While this record doesn't bare that much resemblance to the first two Portishead albums, replacing the influence of Isaac Hayes,Lalo Schifrin et al with the drone metal of bands like Sunn o))) and the massively ahead of their time Silver Apples. The track with the most obvious Silver Apples influence,and my absolute favourite,is We Carry On. It starts like Silver Apples' song Oscillations,except with lyrics that recall Dead Souls by Joy Division (with the inclusion of 2 guitar breaks to match). Other highlights include the near-industrial Machine Gun, the surprisingly Ink Spots-like Deep Water, and the beautiful The Rip,which fans of Beth Gibbons' collaboration with Rustin Man Out of Season will love.Overall an amazing album that stands with the highlights of the decade so far: White Chalk, Ys, A Ghost Is Born, Burial, etc.
