Review: Portishead - Third
Ill start this review with a) a confession and b) a confession.
a) I have never heard Portisheads self-titled second album. Ill rectify this sometime soon.
b) Im somewhat wary about writing my first online music review and giving the subject the maximum score available. But, my god, this record deserves it.
This is something that Ive been contemplating for a while now. What makes an album great? Does every track have to be excellent? Or does it simply have to take you on a great journey? Or must it do both?
All signs point to the third answer. And the third answer is fitting of Third.
I can only imagine how long the 11 years since their last studio album have seemed to the Portishead faithful. Mostly because in 1997 I hadnt even discovered Blur yet. But its most certainly been worth it.
Perhaps the most important thing to write here is this: Third WILL split opinions. But all it takes to love it is time. And a willingness to be uncomfortable.
Keep in Touch!
