    I’m reviewing the 1994 DFI pressing.

    This is such an amazing pressing. The 1997 MPO of the Self titled album is awful in comparison. This has such rich depth. We’re fortunate as fans this got such a good pressing. The 90s did produce some great sounding vinyl.

    This is well worth the money for a serious fan with a good stereo.

          Were the pressings sold by pop.market that were listed as sealed on this listing actually the first pressings? I refuse to believe that an iconic album such as this, released in a time when vinyl was on the way out would have an early vinyl press be only worth around CA$25 sealed. Given that it's hard to tell the difference between the 2008 reissue and this without opening the packaging probably explains why this happened.

            This is a simply stunning and very moving collection of songs. Nice and loud.

              Anyone know the difference between this release and the 2008 release by the outer sleeve alone?

                It's unreal this much music fit on a single platter. This is the quintessential 90's Downtempo record. Special attention to "STRANGERS" side A which is very underrated. GO BUY IT! The production is A+++ on this and gladly holds its own against any Massive Attack album from the same era. The value has held at $30 CAD (New)! Almost any pressing of this will be clean out of a new sleeve.

                  are there any vinyl releases that contain the track "it's a fire"?

                    'roads' will echo through eternity in the same way that 'unfinished symphony' does,or at least it certainly should.borne of the same era and general 'trip hop' fraternity.my only regret is that I was ever so slightly too young to appreciate it at the time.i was generally caught up in hard dance music,so much of which,in retrospect,was entirely disposable when compared to this.at least I can listen to it over 20 years later and shed a tear.thankyou Portishead.

                      The album speaks for itself. And the Vinyl release is superb. The fact that this album is a single disc release, and still sounds this good is almost unbelievable. All respect to Portishead and also the engineers that squeezed 5 tracks on a single side of the vinyl and got this level of quality. Definitely one of the records that can be enjoyed on many levels. This is a work of professionals.
