Review by John Bush

Portishead's album debut is a brilliant, surprisingly natural synthesis of claustrophobic spy soundtracks, dark breakbeats inspired by frontman Geoff Barrow's love of hip-hop, and a vocalist (Beth Gibbons) in the classic confessional singer/songwriter mold. Beginning with the otherworldly theremin and martial beats of "Mysterons," Dummy hits an early high with "Sour Times," a post-modern torch song driven by a Lalo Schifrin sample. The chilling atmospheres conjured by Adrian Utley's excellent guitar work and Barrow's turntables and keyboards prove the perfect foil for Gibbons, who balances sultriness and melancholia in equal measure. Occasionally reminiscent of a torchier version of Sade, Gibbons provides a clear focus for these songs, with Barrow and company behind her laying down one of the best full-length productions ever heard in the dance world. Where previous acts like Massive Attack had attracted dance heads in the main, Portishead crossed over to an American, alternative audience, connecting with the legion of angst-ridden indie fans as well. Better than any album before it, Dummy merged the pinpoint-precise productions of the dance world with pop hallmarks like great songwriting and excellent vocal performances.

All songs play fine. Thanks, will seed this for a while!
Thanks for the rip. Can we get some more detailed rip info tho? Like 192, VBR, anything. Otherwise you really don't konw what your getting...
@dethkon: very good quality so don't worry. It seems to be spinning around 320 kbit VBR, so really top notch. I thought the quality would be low too since the file seems so small, but don't worry! All files are also in mp3 format for those wondering.
Thank you very much!
F**king awsome album..... thx a lot. I lost the CD last week..
just a bit of info, when a track is around 7mb its usualy 320k i also lost cd in a move to new home
one of the best muzik artists of this genre of all time thanx for upload much apreciated.
