I've given this album a rating of 4/10 on the basis of the song 'Roads' alone. The rest really didn't impress me. Aside from Roads and the immutable 'Glory Box' (which saturates at least 25% of all adverts every year), there really isn't much on the album that sucks you in.

"Portishead has a long-standing reputation for being enigmatic, due to the fact that its members don't often perform live and that they make music in a deliberate, unhurried way (the group has released three impeccable albums since its inception in 1991). But in terms of a mission statement, look no further than the chorus of "It Could Be Sweet," a song from the Bristol trio's standout debut album Dummy: "It could be sweet," Beth Gibbons sings.
