Now I know why the new album sounds awful.

But that still doesn't explain how it is Beth forgot how to write good lyrics... that album really was a :| for me.

The songs just don't do it for me like the two previous. It's not bad... just, well, you know... :|
I was absolutely in love with the first two the moment I heard them. And that very first one, around '94-'95... that was a life-changer to me, never felt the same about music since.... That's why the new one made me feel so :|
We should just talk about Portishead in this thread; they are much more worthy of discussion than the Dirty Boy piece of garbage.

I am so totally in agreement here, life changing for my musical perspective as well! :thumbsup

And lets not forget the live album at Roseland, so awesome! :applause:
