Third is the third studio album by English electronic music band Portishead. It was released on 28 April 2008 in the United Kingdom by Island Records and a day later in the United States by Mercury Records. Portishead's first studio album in eleven years, it moved away from the trip hop style they had popularised, incorporating influences such as krautrock, surf rock, doo wop, and the film soundtracks of John Carpenter.

Were Third to be Dummy II - Dummy Harder, would anybody mind After all, that album came out in 1994, and it's been 11 years since any new material of any kind emerged from the minds of Messrs. Barrow, Utley, and Gibbon. Portishead's third album is initially more a record to admire than to love, its muscular synthesisers, drum breaks and abrupt endings keeping the tension high. But after several listens, Third's majesty unfurls. Full Review. This could have been a witty, self-deprecating disclaimer, warning of typical third album creative bankruptcy. Instead it provides fair warning that Third is the most stunning, stark and superb Portishead album yet. Released April 28, 2008. Third Tracklist. Silence Lyrics. As radical reinventions go, Third- the first Portishead studio album since 1997- is surprisingly natural. Darker and bleaker lyrically than their previous work, Third is a sort of re-debut- the band's sound after it has excised every possible remnant of trip-hop from it. Can an album really be a departure if it's the first thing a group's released in 11 years . Third is the 2008 album from Portishead.

While the core trio of Beth Gibbons, Geoff Barrow, and Adrian Utley remains, this is quite a different band to Portishead's 90s incarnation: gone is the slo-mo turntable scratching and smoky jazz feel, replaced by heavy, brooding.
