This album is probably the most solid foundation this quartet have had in 15 years, and it would be a disaster if it wasn’t a springboard for several more.

That ‘Third’ exists at all is impressive. That it’s Portishead’s best album yet is little short of miraculous.

This is an album of genuine depth, one expressing the nervous conservative shockwaves which charge through party kids once they start to come down.

As media characters, they may be difficult to love, but it’s easy to get seriously smitten with the music. New rave is over. The likes of frYars, Late Of The Pier and Crystal Castles are taking electro into darker, more interesting territory. No glowstick required.
