Portishead - Dummy

"Beautifully crafted songs are woven into a tapestry of live instrumentation, samples, loops and technical wizardry.  The samples, which span dub, soul, jazz, blues, funk, prog and downtempo hip hop create menacing and eerie soundscapes that form a perfect backdrop for the dark and paranoid lyrical themes described by the haunting, crystalline vocals of Gibbons.  Beautiful whilst at times uncomfortable.  Tortured.  Understated yet powerful, tender yet fragile.  Evocative of smoky jazz clubs and dusty old records, albeit with a more modern hip hop feel. Somewhere in the sum of these disparate but wonderful parts something very special is going on." - David McTague, getintothis.co.uk, Sept. 2014
