It has been eleven years filled with oft rumored release dates and album reports, but now it is confirmed that Portishead is releasing their third album on April 28th, 2008. The title of the album is Third. Being this close to the release date and given the fact that they have a really sweet box set, I'm going to call this official. And, I'm excited about it.

Portishead is one of my favorite bands from the 90's. Their unique sound defined a whole new genre of music called trip-hop. The eerie voice of Beth Gibons over the dark sounds and beats of Adrian Utley and Geoff Barrow make beautiful sounds burst forth from the speakers even today. The first two albums are timeless in my mind.

Of course, there is always the possibility of a let down when you've waited over ten years for an album. Nevertheless, I'll get it. I'm expecting it to be a different work and sound. I'm hoping that the years have aged it well like a good wine. In just under two weeks, anyone still waiting on the album will, thankfully, get a chance to draw their won conclusions.
