Consistent noise throughout. Especially on The Rip. I only paid about $10 for this so I can't really complain but if you're on the fence don't bother.

Terrible pressing. Both records were warped. The records look very dull and dirty to the eye and sound awful. sent it back and replaced it. The second one I received was just as bad. Definitely one to avoid.

Does anyone know in what way (if any), this version is "limited"? Not much seems to differentiate it from any of the other versions.

Waiting for Portishead's third album, aptly entitled THIRD, was a 10 year wait, but it was completely worth it. They push the sonic extremes even more, adding a lo-fi density to "Silence," as Gibbons' voice cuts through the noise. The sad, ghostly "Hunter" has a dark growl waiting in its belly, while the reversed tones of "Nylon Smile" convey an underlying tension. The folksy opening of "The Rip" gives way to a more electronic backing, as Gibbons' swoon and flies with the melody. But the builds and disappearances of "Plastic" show that their paranoiac sound hasn't completely faded, but has instead gained a new form of expression, as evidenced on the tense "We Carry On." But the banjo-based simplicity "Deep Water" shows that they've got plenty of moods and influences up their sleeves, as the rough-hewn "Machine Gun" blasts down the niceties, opening a space for the cello and psychedelia of "Small" to fill. They can even make a hurdy-gurdy sound menacing, as on "Magic Doors," before returning to the melancholy smokiness that first sealed their sound with "Threads." Let's hope it's not another 10 years before we hear from them again...

I got this from Amazon US and both LPs were warped. A bit disappointed. But at least the records play.
