I have been a Portishead fan for close to 10 years now, which means I've been waiting the same amount of time for any kind of new material to come from the band. After 11 years (their last studio effort, Portishead came out in 1997) they have finally returned and offered the cleverly titled, Third. Having heard a leaked version of the album, I must say the wait was absolutely worthwhile. The band have totally re-invented themselves but managed to stay within the parameters that make Portishead the band that they are. Gone are the turntables and jazz samples that so beautifully filled the previous two records. In it's place is a lo-fi, sonically textured world that highlight Beth Gibbons' amazing soprano. This album sounds a bit more like Gibbons' solo record with Rustin Man (if it were produced by Trent Reznor and Sonic Youth). The songs are haunting, brooding and somber, just like the Portishead we all know and love. But, at the same time, this is a different band. Clearly, time has shown it's influence, as has a bit of world travel. There are so many different cues the band takes from all different places that create the foundation of every song on the record. As I mentioned in the title, it's not Dummy. And it shouldn't be. This is Portishead in the 21st century, and it's the start of a new direction for the band. A direction that I hope they continue to explore and stray from at the same time.

I like Portishead, but this is not even music. This CD was a total waste of money.
