Dummy by Portishead




Play on Napster
Label: Polydor Associated Labels
Along with Massive Attack's "Protection" and Tricky's "Overcome," Portishead's "Roads" represents the apex of UK trip hop, a genre whose short life span belies how influential it was. Dummy didn't start it all (that'd be Massive Attack's Blue Lines); what it did was deliver the sweetest fruits of trip hop -- languid strings, loping beats, desperate, aching vocals, an addictive narcotic pall throughout -- to the masses. Many a good cry was had to this album.
