Portishead is the eponymous second studio album by English band Portishead, released in September 1997.

Portishead is the second studio album by English electronic band Portishead, released on 16 September 1997 by Go! Discs. Only You" samples Ken Thorne's "Inspector Clouseau" and The Pharcyde's "She Said". Western Eyes" is listed as sampling "Hookers & Gin" by the Sean Atkins Experience in the album's liner notes. In reality, this song does not exist; like most of the samples on the album, it was created by the band.

Portishead self-produced Third in their Bristol studios. Many of the album's songs existed for years as sketches, with the members exchanging recordings and adding ideas Wanting to move away from the "trademark" trip hop sound of their first two albums, Portishead avoided using instruments they had used before; Barrow said "the basic thing was to sound like ourselves, not to repeat ourselves

Portishead's debut album, Dummy, popularized trip-hop, making its slow, narcotic rhythms, hypnotic samples, and film noir production commonplace among sophisticated, self-consciously "mature" pop fans. The group recoiled from such widespread acclaim and influence, taking three years to deliver its eponymous second album. On the surface, Portishead isn't all that dissimilar from Dummy, but its haunting, foreboding sonic textures make it clear that the group isn't interested in the crossover success of such fellow travelers as Sneaker Pimps.

This sophomore spook-athon from chilly . combo Portishead clanks across the attic, via Geoff Barrow’s skeletal samples and funereal keyboards. Beth Gibbons’ surgical-steel voice on Portishead slices into her partner’s scraps of musical meat, for an effect that’s hypnotic, bloodless, and addictive.

Third is the third studio album by the English electronic band Portishead. It was first released on 28 April 2008 in the United Kingdom by Island Records and a day later in the United States by Mercury Records.
