One of the best trip-hop albums. It is a landmark album and represents the 90's so well imo.

The best album of the band. Better than "Third".

That voice. I knew nothing about this band when I started listening and with the first few beats of the drum machine I was expecting a rapper. However, out of nowhere this beautiful, etherial voice began, this paired with the drum machine, strings and synths makes a very enjoyable listen. Will certainly be adding this to the collection.

Whoa, so eerie and ethereal. This record has left a major impression on me. I just have to listen to this album again!

So elegant, so chilled and yet it manages to be quietly pioneering in the world of trip-hop. Beautiful vocals from Gibbons. Major props to Portishead for a brilliant debut, I look forward to hearing their other two records.

In this astonishing album Beth Gibbons has managed to tap into the melancholic heartbreak of a neglected Divine Feminine. To have that sensibility alone is a grand feat but to also manage to define a whole genre (trip hop), to go with it, makes this album an absolute classic. This is not background music - instead this album implores you to listen attentively because She has been ignored for far too long.

The smoothest trip-hop album. It has less ambition and musical complexity than it's contemporaries, but it makes up for that with its listen-ability and emotion.

One of the best and unique albums of the nineties. Atmospheric, cinematic, and sexy, Beth Gibbon's and co. create a record combining cocktail jazz and film noir, with a sprinkling of John Barry. Classic.
