Track A1, "Silence", was originally titled "Wicca". Its opening is a sample of Claudio Campos, a Capoeira master, speaking in Portuguese. He recites an adaptation of the Wiccan precept of the Threefold Law which translates back to English as:
"Be aware to the rule of thirds. What you give will return to you. You have to learn this lesson. You only receive what you deserve."

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. Listen free to Portishead Third Silence, Hunter and more. 11 tracks 49:11. Third is the third studio album by English musical group Portishead, released on April 28, 2008 on Island Records in the UK and on April 29, 2008 on Mercury Records in the US. It represents a departure from their previous trip hop sound into a darker, rawer, more industrial style. It is their first release in 10 years, and their first studio album in 11 years. Equalling the performance of their first two studio albums in their native United Kingdom, Third entered the UK Album Chart at 2, and became the band'. Portishead may not have invented trip-hop, but they were among the first to popularize it, particularly in America. Taking their cue from the slow, . 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 . Portishead - Third 2008. To favorites 21 Download album. Listen album.

An important advice: if you want to listen Third, you must be have a subwoofer, because the bass frequencies - Third review: A charm. The interesting thing about Third, of course, is that Portishead are one of the few bands who actually COULD get away with releasing the same album again. 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. Album 2008 12 Songs. The time off was no vacation. Principal producer and writer Geoff Barrow was decidedly unhappy over the groups comfort zone, disturbed that the ensembles experimental ways were so easily co-opted by others and fitted as a lifestyle soundtrack for a sophisticated, affluent class. With Third, the challenge was on to reinvent the groups spooky trip-hop, film-noir magic as something far more extreme


No issues on mine, records are straight and sound is beautiful.
One of the worst pressings I've ever listened to. Warped, damaged labels, and very noisy Updated: While this pressing is among the absolute worst of my collection, the album itself is a stone cold 10/10.
Mine is slightly warped and grooves are not centered, so the needle is doing a little dance up and down and side to side. Normally, if the album sounded good, I would be okay with this. The sound is way too upper end for me, with weak mids and bass is just kind of there. Based on the other reviews, I just think this is a bad release all together. I'll keep as a placeholder, but hope they give them the good pressing they deserve. I think all the vinyl releases are just mediocre.
mine is good, sounds great... luckily have none of the issues other are saying... ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I was lucky to get a flat one but sounds much too bright and over compressed. Lot's of surface noise throughout. It gave me listener fatigue.
Listener fatigue? Lulz. What a joke. I hate this age.
My copy sounds fine (distorted though) - it does not do justice to the album but it sounds alright, no noise whatsoever, few clicks though.
Same as other reviews. No warps but surface noise throughout.
My copy of this release is warped enough to be heard. Surface noise and pops throughout. Modest soundstage. Good bottom end and the high frequencies are crisp. Unfortunately, the pressing is so noisy and distracting it's hard to enjoy this album. I do not recommend this release. They should have limited this edition to zero copies. (Rega Planar 3, Exact 2 cart, PSE Studio SL, Linn LK85, Linn interconnects, Linn Katans)
"They should have limited this edition to zero copies". That right there was funny. :)Bummer it was such a bad pressing.
Both discs very warped, also crackles and pops all over the place. Such a shame, because it's a great album.
Mine warped very easily. Had the slightest pressure and now there's a corner on the second disc.
No warps on mine but surface looks matt & grubby & loads of pops / clicks in quieter parts, hoping a good clean on the machine will improve but, a cheap copy all the same
my copy is great no warp no surface noise dont know why people complain about the album is great, limited edition = 45rpm got it for 10$ fantastic price
Consistent noise throughout. Especially on The Rip. I only paid about $10 for this so I can't really complain but if you're on the fence don't bother.
Terrible pressing. Both records were warped. The records look very dull and dirty to the eye and sound awful. sent it back and replaced it. The second one I received was just as bad. Definitely one to avoid.
Does anyone know in what way (if any), this version is "limited"? Not much seems to differentiate it from any of the other versions.
Not a great pressing. Some noise. Vinyl surface was dirty and Slightly warped right out of shrink wrap.
I got this from Amazon US and both LPs were warped. A bit disappointed. But at least the records play.
I have this version and it sounds great&the vinyl seems decent. Maybe it was just the first copies that were defective?I also wonder why it says limited edition when it doesnt seem very limited at all..
AVOID THIS, get the uk release instead :)
Was missing a download card with my version. Haven't experienced the warped vinyl.
Avoid the Mercury vinyl edition. Sound quality is subpar - sounds muffled. Go for the UK release instead.
Got a B0011141-01 ST03 of the LP What's the difference between JK02 and ST03 ?
After listening to this version, I'm starting to think the JK stands for "Just Kidding".
My lp is also curved. Angry.
ya mine is warped as well, im probably gonna return it :/ this is agrivating, i love portishead
yeah, mine to.also, not the best sound quality to be honest
I love this record, but when purchase this edition both lp are curved, could it be a defective manufactured, something have a same fail it's a plain shame.It's a USA edition 0251764104
While this is an amazing album, the packaging is not so much to be desired. I guess during the printing and packaging process not much care was put into them. When i opened up the shrink wrap i noticed the cover was warped and there were large creases on the inside of the gatefold. The vinyl seems to be in great condition but i have read stories of warped vinyl as well as warped covers. Shame on you mercury for placing a limited edition sticker on something so poorly constructed.
