5.0 out of 5 stars Best electronic album ever made, 2 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dummy (Audio CD)
My title says it all really - I just can't believe it's taken me 15 years to get hold of a copy! I never thought I'd be the sort of person who would be listening to jazz-infused, film-noir styled, scratch-laden downtempo, yet not only am I listening, I'm loving it more than anything else I've ever listened to! Other reviewers have done enough to explain just why this is such an aural delight. All I want to add is that it is very rare that an album brings with it complete satisfaction and joy in the way that 'Dummy' does to me - it's as close to perfection as I've ever encountered.

Not one single weak track, no fillers, not even any annoying bits that could have been done without (as in the follow up 'Portishead'). As such, you can speak to a dozen different people about 'Dummy' and they will all have different combinations of their fave tracks - that's quite rare and shows the strength of the album. 'Sour Times', 'Strangers', 'Numb', 'Roads', 'Pedestal' - I can't decide! Who cares, just buy it and play it from start to finish as it deserves!
