omg so didnt know that these were releasing a new album..i loved these as a kid i grew up with them .. reminds me off parents getting stoned and us lal just monging out listening to them .. then when i got older id do the same.. memories
i dunno,that repetitive,overwhelming drum machine gets a bit annoying after about 30 seconds. i hope the rest of the album is more bearable. and it kind of overshadows and makes her gorgeous as always voice sound a bit too minute.
Dummy is one of my fav albums but I'm also a fan of the new one. Not all the songs are like Machine Gun, for those who are wondering. the album as a whole has a really unique sound. it's more experimental than I was expecting and has sort of a raw and unusual vibe about it
The first albums I got from my own money (I don't know, I was 12 or 13 years old)were from Muse and Portishead, haha. My mom was furious and asked why I blow money on that artists and not real music like Backstreet Boys
Ohhh I didn't know we had a thread on Portishead! I'd heard about a leak a couple of weeks ago, so I went ahead and downloaded the few tracks that I could find (Limewire ). I just checked and the songs are all over the internet now, so I'll post a few.
I don't know how I feel about this album yet... I think Dummy already topped it for me. It's definitely a new sound that we haven't yet heard from Portishead at least. I'll post the rest of the songs later when my computer decides to behave!
I agree! I have been listening to it all month and it grows on me more and more I like Machine Gun but there are many other songs which are better to me. It's got such a unique vibe on the album and it is unexpected (in a good way) as a whole.
Have been waiting to hear other Portishead fans' thoughts on it
