Cowboys 's debut album, Dummy, popularized trip-hop, making its slow, narcotic rhythms, hypnotic samples, and film noir production commonplace among sophisticated, self-consciously mature pop fans. The group recoiled from such widespread acclaim and influence, taking three years to deliver its eponymous second album. On the surface, Portishead isn't all that dissimilar from Dummy, but its haunting, foreboding sonic textures make it clear that the group isn't interested in the crossover success of such fellow travelers as Sneaker Pimps.

Next to the simply vinyl pressing, this is the best pressing. Heavy bass, clean and great sound range. Perfect.
It's so easy
I couldn't agree more regarding the quality of this pressing; simply stunning.
Any comments on the sound quality of this remastered version?
It's fantastic. Clean, clear, heavy bass, great range. No issues.
Does this reissue have Matrix / Runout (Side C, stamped): STERLING?Trying to find the difference between these two pressings:
Mine has these runouts, which don't seem to match any release exactly:(Side 1): 314-539-189-1A HUBTV FW/RCE(Side 2): 314-539-189-1B HUBTV(Side 3): 314-539-189-1C-R3 RJ STERLING X G(Side 4): 314-539-189-1D HUBTVAlso, I bought it used in a collection. It's in a plastic outer sleeve with a price stamp on it that reads, "1298 55". I wonder if the 1298 represents the month/year the record store priced it? Granted it could be from a different album. I wonder it I have this Portishead - Portishead?
Mine came with 2 of the first record and none of the second. Kinda bummed as I don't think I can return it.
Was able to exchange! Hooray!
Feels like a 180GM...
Is this a 2xLP? I have a recent repress that matches this listing but it's a double.
dianardo If it says "Made in the USA. Sleeve printed in Canada" on the back of the sleeve, why is the counrty on this listing set to UK? I have this record as well, and it also says "Made in USA" on the labels. FIXED.
Nevermind my question re country. Got my answer in the guidelines.
