Portishead is the epitome of brilliant trip-hop.

You could say I'm a fan.

Weird, I just spent the weekend listening to Portishead... and suddenly this thread pops out.

They are really good, their live album is impressive.

Hahahah life is full of coincidences...

Anyways, what's your favorite album? Dummy, Portishead or the live one? And is anyone else excited about the new one coming sometime next year?

^Dummy, by far. the others are great though, but the self titled is hard to get into.


sooooo excited for the new album!

Dummy is my favorite too...


Lol @ the comments, but back on topic, Beth's voice is the definition of haunting.

come to think of it i'm not a huge fan of massive attack either.
maybe trip hop stuff just isn't for me.

western eyes is an exquisite song. that beth,she makes me cry . portishead is very `EN ROUTE

dummy, portishead, sour times (nobody loves me) (ep though)..

offtopic: i find this alt & indie subforum rly relaxing , calming and refreshing (as an opposite to the pit :p which started to annoy me big time)

`western eyes` is an exquisite song. . . portishead is something like `EN ROUTE music`, i luv driving and listening to PSH. vanilla skies and rainy afternoons are just perfect for it.

I had Dummy for about a year and only listened to Sour Times and Glory Box, but suddenly it just clicked... and then I got into more trip hop stuff... I suppose it depends on the mood you're in.

Ja, we're glad to have another music geek added to the Alt + Indie family. I'ma send you a friend request.

"Mysterons" is a really good song, too.

So anyone pumped over the new portishead album? I've heard a few songs I've gotten in slightly cuestionable ways... they're nice
