Anybody: how does this stand up to something like Tricky's Maxinquaye? I never really enjoyed much trip-hop, but that was my favorite record from the movement. Might I enjoy this more than the first two Portishead records, if I dug that record? Holler at your boy.

I think giving the rougher sound of Third compared to their first 2 album that loving Maxinquaye might be a definite positive

don't hold it against me should you end up not agreeing though

It's probably more abrasive than Maxinquaye. Not as much as Pre-Millenium Tension, but somewhere in between. And BTW, I think that Tricky album is hugely underrated. Guy created like a whole new genre there. Electro-blues or something.

To be honest, this album isn't really even "trip hop", so it's hard to judge if you'll like it in comparison to the rest of the genre. You should have given it a listen when it was free to stream on Last FM!

A good point. And I imagine it would have been kind of sad seeing them try to resurrect a 10 year-old trend, even if they were one of its originators.

It cant be compared with Maxinquaye.

It´s Portishead sound, with muddled strings and Beth´s vocals, the sounds are rather acoustic and Tricky´s sounds are very different.

I like the third. It is experimental and I will not listen to it at the poolbar, but fits a dim lighted room at night.

For the Tricky lovers amongst us, his next album will be out in July, check out the single on knowlewestboy.com

and there are some fine releases i.e. Laid Blak on Brown Punk, the label he founded with Chris Blackwell.

I just listened to the album. Sheesh, this is one dark, claustrophobic puppy; the kind of album that makes me wonder about the mental/emotional state of its makers. It's brilliant though, definitely one of the year's highlights,

That's such an accurate description of this. It took me a few listens to really get into it, but now I can really appreciate it's darkness. Way better than I'd expected, I hope they're announced for V festival now
