I've burned a hole through my "Dummy" and "Portishead" cd's, so it was nice to hear several alternative takes of two of my favorite tracks. However, the list price is rather steep for the amount of music (less than one regular cd, despite the fact that they put it on two), and you really have to be in the right mood to listen to the same lyrics and chord progressions over and over. Overall, the live album is much more satisfying.

"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.

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.
