     Portishead...... but not as we know it

    Posted: 

    I was really looking forward to this album, given my past love of their previous work. Unfortunately I was left feeling that an integral part of the sound( for me this seems to be the part I liked)has been left behind, there should be a natural progression but I feel that they have definitely gone in the wrong direction. A couple of songs, small,plastic and machine gun have echoes of the 'old' Portishead most will love and remember. The rest of the tracks seem to be disjointed and lacking any real rhythm or melody and lack the 'trip hop influence. I really wanted to like this album but I just cant bring my self to.....a real disappointment :(
