This review is from: Dummy [VINYL] (Vinyl)
This beautiful album was named as the best album of 1994 by melody maker. Smooth, chilling vocals from Beth Gibbons mixed with pure musical poetry make this album a must for any collector.
The album samples mucical greats such as Smokey Brookes, Weather Report, Eric Burdon, Johnnie Ray, and Isaac Hayes.
Portishead push you into a fragile world of tranquility with epics such as "numb" and "Biscuit".
However, no track alone can be singled out on this album. It simply is, as stated above: Pure Genius.
The record has such acclaim, it is hard to get your hands on an original release:
If you see it, buy it. (expect to pay up to £35 for a record of high grade).
