4.0 out of 5 stars Classic songs accompanied by innovative remixes June 9 2002
By Kandy
Format:Audio CD
"Glory Box" and "Sour Times" are classic songs and if you can't get enough of them, then you would love Portishead's different interpretations of them. "Airbus Reconstruction" is a grungy rock version of "Sour Times" and I wasn't surprised because Portishead member and producer, Geoff Barrow, has stated that he admired Nirvana. "Lot More" is a grimier urban "Sour Times" while "Sour Sour Times" has an acid jazz feel. "Scorn" takes the Isaac Hayes sample and the dark beat from the part at the end where Beth sings "This is the beginning of forever and ever" and reverses them in the song, so that the Isaac Hayes sample is the break and the dark beat is the main music (You'll understand if you hear it). "Toy Box", "Sheared Box" and Theme from "To Kill A Dead Man" are instrumentals that don't sound anything like "Glory Box" and "Sour Times" but they are good nevertheless. Also, if you don't have Portishead's "Dummy", you're music collection is missing out. "Dummy" is a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but odd choices... March 1 2001
By Rafael
Format:Audio CD
This compiles slightly altered versions of the SOUR TIMES and GLORY BOX singles. All in all, it's a good deal-- some funky, scratchy Sour Times remixes from the first disc, and on the second an AMAZING, evil and chilling remix of Glory Box ("Scorn") that manages to completely transform the lyrics and emphasize the dark undercurrents of the original song.
My only complaint is that the theme from "To Kill a Dead Man" is included, a great atmospheric film-noir piece, yet for some reason "A Tribute to Monk and Canatella" is not, which is from the same Sour Times/Numb mini-EP. I'd just buy that, and the Glory Box single.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't Help But LOVE It Feb. 22 2002
By Empty
Format:Audio CD
This imported CD (or CDs, I should say), is a fantastic set of remakes of "Sour Times" and "Glory Box." "Sheared Times" is an upbeat charger, a confident song without lyrics. If you have ever seen the film called "The Craft" (with Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich), recall the scene of the lead character, Sarah, running through the woods from Chris after a nightmare date. That song you heard was "Scorn" which is also on this CD. This album is irreplaceable and the icing on the cake of your Portishead collection.
