PORTISHEAD - "Dummy" remains one of the best albums of all time

Recommended Posts

The amount of wankerish college/uni peeps I had to suffer through listening to this album with in the 90s is just too much. I'll stick to Blue Lines THANKS

I love The Bends but I prefer OK Computer

 

The OKNOTOK box set reissue from last year was lush.

Alanis was mostly just a US "phenomenon" was she not? Aside from that eye-raw-nick ish, she never really caught on.

Dummy is everything. As is their self-titled album. I hope they put out something new soon. And I prefer Protection and Mezzanine to Blue Lines (although "Unfinished Sympathy" is divine).

Beth Gibbons voice is haunting. It just pierces through the speakers. Stops you in your tracks. Dummy is one of the best albums of the 90s.

Haha, precisely. Not that I care for any of their music. But yeah, I remember it being the pretentious kids flavor of the moment for just too long...

Right? They were guff. The only thing htey originated was singing in a stupid affected accent. Tricky, just about anything on the Mo'wax label, and yes indeed Massive Attack - the originators of so-called trip hop, were all far superior in that timeframe.

Only one of my favorite bands ever. Dummy is a wonderful album. It always resonated with me very strongly, and I only saw them live once, years later, in 2013 maybe. They are a true talent. It was an incredible show. They did one of Dummy's best songs, Wandering Star, which they did every show of that tour I think.

Dummy is an awesome album. Pure 90s moment. Other Portishead albums are crap more or less.

I probably just blocked it out. Never saw the appeal, even with the Madge connection. Her and that LISA LOEB :evil:

I can certainly see why one could think that. I find it riveting, because I do have taste. :queenbitch:

"Dummy" is one of my favorite albums too - but then, I love all the trip-hop albums I know.

Yes, of course. Dummy is one of the finest musical works of all-time...if the night could sing, it takes the form of Dummy
