Fave Albums: Portishead - Dummy

Portishead's debut album Dummy came out in 1994 and won the 1995 Mercury Music Prize for best British album.  Portishead is considered part of the trip-hop genre with its use of samples, electronica and the sullen vocals of Beth Gibbons.  Highlights on the album are the hit singles "Sour Times" and "Glory Box," as well as the songs "It's A Fire" and "Roads."  It is the perfect album to chill out to or listen to on a stormy, wintry day with its dark and melancholy feel.

Favorite Lyric: We're all looking at a different picture through this new frame of mind ("Glory Box")

Favorite Song: "Roads"
