Portishead – Third (2008 US)
Full of scuff marks
Third is the third studio album by English electronic band Portishead. It was released in the United Kingdom on 28 April 2008 through Island Records, and a day later in the United States through Mercury Records.
If you were expecting great sounding from knowing that this US release was in fact pressed on 45rpm, you would be very disappointed. As I am.
It’s a typical trade mark WG/NRP ⓤ sound. Dull and uninspiring. Perhaps the EU pressing is a better bet.
