From ExTeaSea
One of the most haunting albums I've come across. There's really nothing I can think of that has this very specific sound. It's a dark and lovely trip.

This my first listen to this album - I've heard a handful of the songs already from their live NYC album, many of which I really like.

Uno de esos álbumes que nunca te cansas de escuchar. De hecho, su hipnótico sonido crece más en ti cada vez que lo pones. Me rindo.

Not as great as, dummy, but still a very good album by a band who just haven't released enough albums. Just think of all the greatness we're missing out on. Still, I'm thankful for the three we do have.

This album sounds so eerie and eccentric that I find the tracks highly consistent to each other and congruous with the overall mood. In this regard, it's better than their first one imo, which is why I think of this as their best album. I particularly like the weird accent applied in 'Humming', for it's just so befitting to and accentuating the gothic, dark vibe. On the other hand it might be too much of a melancholic downer, thus quite averse to the taste of many people. Then again I appreciate its unencumbered willingness to embrace the true darkness.

Really good, but a bit too comfortable with itself for me to really love it.

Smoke fills a futuristic lounge filled with retro decor. A wounded woman steps up to a microphone and sings a passionate cover of a Nina Simone song you can't seem to remember the name of.

After more listening, I just like this more! The sound effect in this one is often unpredictably chilly, which makes it more interesting than Dummy. And, the tracks here are more consistent. So far this is my favorite from Portishead.
