Product Reviews


Nope, can't fault it...

Portishead's debut was undeniably huge in more ways than one. Not only did it have music to die for, but it has such an great vibe - this was much more than just electronica and trip-hop.

Along with Massive Attack and Tricky, Portishead helped to fashion the genre known as trip hop, and this album certainly made it's mark on refining its sound. As a whole, this is a fairly gloomy album in tone, echoing a lot of the bands who were releasing music in a similar style at the time. The thing that sets 'Dummy' apart however is not only the hip hop beats, jangling guitars and deep, throbbing bass that is pretty much ever present, but the astounding smoky vocals of Beth Gibbons. She really has such an incredibly soulful voice, and her soft (and occasionally, abbrasive) tones fit the downbeat music perfectly.

All in all, this album is well worth investing in, and is certainly Portishead's greatest moment by a country mile.
