In this second album, the vocals are more risky, and she takes chances with her voice, which is a good thing, meaning that the songs are more moving. The bad thing is that her voice just sounds too terrible to enjoy with it sounding so horrible in every song. When every song sounds as if she is singing through a drive through fast food restaurant intercom, it is just appalling. In the case of All Mine, and Only You, it is a perfect fit, being that the songs are about emotions run wild, and there is a need for such rawness. If the beats and musical landscapes were good, even this would over shadow such terrible singing, but the music is mediocre and monotone. After listening to the album a few more times, I still find that only these two songs alone are worth buying the CD at a bargin price. Honestly, I don't understand why all of the hype and praise is given to Portishead. Yes, their lyrics are their strong point, but one cannot live by lyrical content alone. Some advice, buy Massive Attack or Hooverphonic if you are looking for an album with excellent trip-hop music. Both of Portishead's albums aren't any where near as good as any of these.
