9/10 Phil Staff review, 02 July 2008
Portishead release The Rip, my absolute favourite track from their fantastic third album. By far one of the highlights of the year, this is the highlight of the record for me. It starts off with Beth singing the most fragile thing over a repetitive acoustic guitar line over some haunting spooky sounding keyboards. Then the drums kick in with this Can like cyclicalism and some in your face big Silver Apples keyboards. Put simply this is a beautiful song which completely rules. There's nothing bad about this song at all aside from it doesn't go on forever and be the soundtrack of my life until I die. Bold statement but I like this song a lot. Adoration aside I have to say this is one for the diehard fans (not the series of action films...) as it's an etched 1 sided 12" with just The Rip on it which is on the album. The black on black artwork is a bit nice though and the vinyl is weapons grade but I would say this is for the collectors. Limited edition of 2 or 3 thousand.... I just don't pay enough attention to sales notes to remember.
