4.0 out of 5 stars Quite beautiful, 25 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Out of Season (Audio CD)
Portishead have produced some fine music and a significant part of the sound has been Beth Gibbon's plaintive voice. 'Out of Season' allows Gibbons to show a less tortured side to her voice and is such a beautifully relaxed and composed sound that I found it both soothing and stimulating.
The music is perfectly balanced with the mood of the songs. 'Romance' is delicately orchestrated and is so sensitively handled that it takes your breath away. Other songs, such as 'Resolve' are just Gibbons and a guitar, yet (like all great vocal/guitar music) it is a complete and rounded sound.
Why not 5 stars? It's a fantastic album, but 5 stars should be reserved for albums like Endtroducing DJ Shadow. (Which is genius, by the way.)
This album is superb. Buy it.
