Track Of The Day - Portishead - The Rip

I am really enjoying streaming the new Portishead album Third on LastFM. I think the idea of streaming your album on the Internet a week before the official release date is a really spot on idea - that is if you have a blinder of an album like this here Portishead. I will go out and buy this now I am happy that I actually like it. I wasn't really sure what to expect after loving Dummy so much. Portishead brings back a lot of fond memories from when I was a young teen and when a new album is so hyped, there's always a risk a lot of people will say they like it when it's actually crap. Of course whether you like it or not is your decision. I would suggest if you have a free hour to try streaming it on LastFM, it's quite relaxing and only slightly depressing ;-)

Final Outcome: Portishead are happy (in a Portishead sort of a way) + I'm happy (like Chalky in a cheesecake shop) = Good right?

Great idea Portishead, hope more artists take this route when releasing new albums.
