Excellent news. Portishead in '08, Massive Attack in '09. Nice.

Was 100th Window good? i never heard anything from it other than the Sinead song, and I don't remember anyone really talking about it. That Danny the Dog soundtrack was supposed to be awful though, right?

I just had a look at their discography on allmusic.

allmusic ((( 100th Window > Overview ))) (4 stars)

http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p...0:09frxqwsld0e (2.5 stars)

I only have Mezzanine though. I want to get Blue Lines too, at least.

Looking at Metacritic, that Allmusic review is actually a bit generous in regards to 100th Window...

I was disappointed by 100th Window, I wouldn't say it was bad but it's not in league with the other 3. I'd probably give it a 6/10.

This one is supposed to have Tom Waits, Mike Patton and Mos Def on it.

(as well as Damon and the drooltastic Liz Fraser again)

Tom Waits? Mos Def? The Damon Albarn? Shee-it.

The question is, do they take the route of Portishead and do something daring and excellent, or the route of a multitude of other bands that "come back" and bore the shit out of everyone.....

Didn't they already release 2 boring "come back" albums since Mezzanine? They never really went away, people just stopped listening and paying attention.

You might be talking about a compilation album.
Because 100th Window is the only studio album since then, AFAIK.

There was a 'hits' compilation 2 or 3 years back with a new single on it.
