Portishead – Dummy
by Go! Beat
Condition: Brand New
2008 - it's unbelievable and very few people expected it... but Beth Gibbons and her ingenious partners went back to the studio and finally produced the third official Portishead album. III is the title and the world of sounds and tones will certainly roll up from behind again. Just like when the drawer TripHop was invented and Portishead smashed in with their groundbreaking album Dummy and became icons of a somehow indescribable sound.
F. Erdle in Audio 11 / 94: "Pop CD of the month. ...her expressive singing is groping its way in cautious about the sacred inheritance of Juliette Greco and Billie Holiday. Dummy's a breath-- robbing trip between delight, madness and Nostalgia."
ALL MUSIC GUIDE ****
"'Dummy' plays like a romantic film noir, filled with reverb, sighing strings, dark erotic arrangements and the doomed, sighing vocals of Beth Gibbons."
