Thread: HELP!!! I want to give Portishead a second chance.

  1. #1

    Unhappy HELP!!! I want to give Portishead a second chance.

    All my friends love Portishead so fucking much, i have tried for the past couple of weeks to get into them. i respect them tremendously for what they have done as far as popularizing trip hop, but i cant seem to jump on the train. HELP!!! fans please give me some songs to check out that might change my mind.

    Try listening to their only two studio albums. "Dummy" and "Portishead" and then the live album at Roseland NY (or better yet the DVD).

    Standouts tho are..
    Glory Box, Roads, Only You, Humming, Biscuit, All Mine, It's A Fire, and Mysterons...
    damn, I listed almost half of their discography.

    If you don't enjoy the song "Glory Box", there's no hope.

    You either like it or you don't. Stop trying to get into something just because others are into it.

    I really think there is no hope anyway.

    You must just listen, you dont need people to tell you what songs are good. Just listen, if you dont like, then you dont like, someone telling you Glory Box, Sour Times, Mourning Air is good doesnt change the fact that you have already listened to them and dont like them.

    It was never a single, but I think "It Could Be Sweet" is the greatest song ever.
    At some point in time a man switches from "I'll have what he's having" to "I'll have what I'm having."

    That song reminds me of Sade for some reason. Great track too!

    Don't listen to either of their studio albums if you're trying to figure out why they're amazing. Just listen to tracks 1-4 on the Roseland live album. If that doesn't convince you, you're the problem.

    Speaking of Portishead, is anyone else scared by the fact that they didn't play All Mine at ATP? If they don't play that at Coach it will be a little saddening. I want to hear that shit drop so bad.

    YES. I'd high five you, but all I'd get in return is a chuckle... ;___;

    I don't high five. I don't want to be capable of description as a "high-fiving white guy." Ever.

    I only high-five if it's funny to do so. Otherwise celebration can be expressed just fine without touching.
