8/10 Brian Staff review, 11 April 2008
Portishead return after an 11 year hiatus with a rather stunning new single, 'Machine Gun' on an etched 1 sided 12". I saw them live in Manchester the other day and was thoroughly engaged by the new material, this lead track being the most alarming & uncommercial. It's got these juddering mechanised drum machine beats that remind me of early Caberet Voltaire crossed with the Terminator Soundtrack. Ant can even hear new skool German techno pioneers such as T++ in here. Beth Gibbons' vocals hang in the air like a ghostly shroud over this battered, alien landscape. It's really gonna divide people is this but with other new tracks having a profound krautrock/Silver Apples feel, It's a bit of a red herring initially (if you've not already stolen it from torrent like all the impatient types) A more than welcome back hug is in the offing for our our fave tragic futurists. Ant says "bombastic" in his finest Shaggy-esque guttaral voice.
