Wow ! Not many entries for as old as this is . Have to comment on the Portishead statement . Unless I have missed something , I believe DJ Shadow is the ORIGINATOR Of the Trip Hop Genre . I love Portishead too but Man , Portishead has NEVER EVER !!! Stirred the emotions within me like Lamb can . This band is Way higher up the pecking order - At least in my book - Because of that . Also, The wrong side of Trip hop ? WTF is the right side ? Or am I supposed to take your word for it , Just because you don't like it ? I Like what I like, NOT because it's popular or Indie or any other thing . I like it because I ( ME ) like it . Not because someone else thinks it's cool . And Satan will be using iceskates before ANYONE will convince me that I should not like a song , due to their ill preconceived ideas of what music I should be listening to ,Just because it's POPULAR . I would still love this music if Lamb had only 1 listener .
