Third


As previously mentioned, the criteria for our best of 2008 is the accumulated average of our writers and contributors picks. And few chose Third as their absolute favorite, it showed up on more lists than any other record of 2008.

Almost ironically, in a year dominated by beard-folk and synth club bands, Portishead returned with a sound as relevant as anyone. A testament to their innovation, longevity and the fact they were already ahead of the curve when they formed almost two decades ago.
