Portishead's Second Album

As you know, Portishead are back! I have not heard the new album (their third) yet, but I did recently acquire a copy of their untitled second. It is from ages ago. One of the things everyone has been too polite too mention is how ill-regarded it was when it came out. Listening to it now you can maybe see why this was so – it is perfectly grand, but it does not really have any of the tracks of total genius that the first one served up. It is, nevertheless, still perfectly functional.
