I recently reaquired a couple Portishead albums. I first got into them in 1998 when Roseland NYC was coming out. My introduction was actually by way of NPR, which was a lot more random for me then than it would be now. Sitting here right now, on a sunny socal day but in the shade with headphones on, something just makes this absolutely the right song to be on. Beth Gibbons vocals are hauntingly beautiful. Of the Portishead albums this one, Portishead, is probably the least of my favorites, but I just love this song. In the same vein is "Roads", off of Dummy.
