This album is a work of art. A dark one, to be sure! Definitely agree with P. Hangman's review below. Thanks, Portishead! This one is timeless.

"Portishead" is almost a departure in sound of the Portishead that gave us Dummy a couple of years before. Constructed with samples created by themselves, with more gloomy lyrics, vocals and sound, and less Hip Hop influence than their previous works, this album really sounds like a 40's western/romance/sci-fi movie soundtrack, and that makes it very interesting. But not only the concept seems good, the music is really nice too: innovative breaks, that "old" sound quality and cool tunes like "All Mine", "Half Day Closing" (With real drums played by Barrow!), "Humming" and "Seven Months"...
Functioning like a concept album, Portishead's second release will be no problem to hear for those who love the other releases by the crew. But maybe is not the best introduction, I think.
