best songs by Portishead to listen to while getting toasted are Glory Box, Roads, It's A Fire and Half-Day Closing.

mmm those songs are great to smoke to.

I still haven't come to terms with Third. It will happen someday soon. I know it.

And Marskell, listen to Glory Box when you are high as balls. It will just take you places...

Oh thanks for reminding me!

I totally forgot about this.

Geoff also produced the Horrors new album, I need to hear that as well. Meant to be good.

I love Dummy, but I haven't gotten around to fully devoting time to Third and S/T, even though I have them both

Yeah, I really enjoyed Beak>.
And The Horrors album, don't get me started... That was probably my favourite album of the year.

Portishead is love.
Their live performances on Jools Holland were perfect.

Their music is so special. Third is so damn good.

Dummy and self titled are great, but it has finally hit me how good Third is.

Dummy is amazing. I really need to get round to S/T and Third.

Listening to Dummy while driving at night is so awesome.

I found Dummy on my parents CD rack, still need to get round to listening to it. I can't even remember why I was looking for it, but I remember listening to Glory Box as a kid, such a good song.

Overall, I think Third is a good album, just not my tastes I guess. The Rip, however, is an incredible song though.

Elysium and Glory Box are definitely my favorite songs, with The Rip at a close...third.
