Amoeba Review

Brad 02/08/2013

I can't think about 1994 without Portishead. I can't really even think about the 90s without thinking about this album. Dummy was everywhere in my life from 1994 to probably the end of the 90s. I am sure I listened to this album more than most anything else in my collection. This band seemed to come out of nowhere and just took over my life. I think most everyone I knew owned this album. This album was a blend of downtempo electronica and hip hop. Massive Attack had basically started the genre know as Trip Hop. But Portishead really made it crazy popular this year. Tricky released Maxinquaye the following year. This album is amazing from the beginning to the end. And it really still holds up after all these years. The album featured "Sour Times," "Numb," "Roads," "Glory Box" & "Mysterons." I really can't express enough my love for this album even all these years later. I did probably listen to it too much at the time. But after a bit of a break I still find myself going back to it a couple of times a year.

 

This album featured in Brad’s Best Albums of 1994 blog.
