From ExTeaSea
First listen I'm like yes it's pretty good but now it might be my favorite Portishead album. Definitely one of those bands that I wish made more music. Probably the best comeback album put out by any band.

This is a very heavy album. Approach with caution.

very nice journey of listening by a wonderful album and band!
although i think that the first half is much better than the second....
after Deep Waters, there is no song that really captivates me.
but after all great album and surely a great comeback!

Having recently listened to 'Dummy' and thought it was absolutely fantastic and original, I have to say this album was mildly disappointing. It's not bad but it just didn't have the same effect.

An excellent return. A slightly more darker and industrial sounding album from Portishead. It's certainly up there with, dummy, and is proof that this band still has something to offer.

How good is Threads though?

Definite contender for album of the decade.

Portishead. Ten years later, and still as good as ever.

Un brin de déception pour ce troisième album longtemps attendu. Mais cela reste du tout bon.
