Info regarding "Third/P3" memory stick:
(Comes sitting in a cut-out hole in a card tray about a centimetre thick.)
The Sky USB Drive is labelled "P3" when viewed on a computer. It has 1GB capacity, though the included content only fills 681MB. It contains five 4:3 aspect films in two formats, MPEG (.mpg) at 320×240 resolution, and Flash Video (.flv) at 720×576 resolution (Standard Definition in PAL broadcasting). There are two additional Flash Videos: "P3Logo" (P3 logo) and "P3USBBack" (P3 USB background).
The drive also contains the full "Third" album as 320kbps FhG (Fraunhofer Society) encoded MP3's, and an Adobe Flash Player 9.0 r115 (ver. 9,0,115,0) stand-alone program which allows you to play the 320kbps MP3's and the Flash Videos. There are also further resource files to aid the video title screen to work on both PC's and Apple Macs, and verification files for many Portishead country websites (see reason below).
In addition, when the "P3" Flash Player is played, as well as the 11 audio MP3 tracks and the 5 Flash Videos, the title screen includes a link to a website, this asks for an email address, uses files on the USB drive to verify ownership of a valid product, and then allows you to access additional online content (initially this was going to be from 1 July 2008, then delayed to start from 1 August 2008).

Album


Were Third to be Dummy II - Dummy Harder, would anybody mind After all, that album came out in 1994, and it's been 11 years since any new material of any kind emerged from the minds of Messrs. Portishead's Third has been a long time coming, the result of a lengthy creative torpor following 1997's dark, distinctly underrated album Portishead. Threads runs on reverb and insomniac drumming, which is a sleek platform for vocalist Beth Gibbons to work off of, closing the album in a cinematic catastrophe. Third is the third studio album by English musical group Portishead, released on April 28, 2008 on Island Records in the UK and on April 29, 2008 on Mercury Records in the US. Third Tracklist. Darker and bleaker lyrically than their previous work, Third is a sort of re-debut- the band's sound after it has excised every possible remnant of trip-hop from it. Portishead's first studio album in eleven years, it moved away from the trip hop style they had popularised, incorporating influences such as krautrock, surf rock, doo wop, and the film soundtracks of John Carpenter. Portishead's first studio album in eleven years, it moved away from the trip hop style they had popularised, incorporating influences such as krautrock, surf rock, doo wop, and the film soundtracks of John Carpenter. 11 tracks 49:11. While the core trio of Beth Gibbons, Geoff Barrow, and Adrian Utley remains, this is quite a different band to Portishead's 90s incarnation: gone is the slo-mo turntable scratching and smoky jazz feel, replaced by heavy, brooding. It represents a departure from their previous trip hop sound into a darker, rawer, more industrial style. Equalling the performance of their first two studio albums in their native United Kingdom, Third entered the UK Album Chart at 2, and became the band'. Equalling the performance of their first two studio albums in their native United Kingdom, Third entered the UK Album Chart at 2, and became the band'. Portishead may not have invented trip-hop, but they were among the first to popularize it, particularly in America. 11 tracks. Third is the third studio album by English electronic music band Portishead. third album would be anyones guess. Released April 28, 2008. It was released on 28 April 2008 in the United Kingdom by Island Records and a day later in the United States by Mercury Records. Taking their cue from the slow, free to Portishead Third Silence, Hunter and more. Third Portishead Album. But after several listens, Third's majesty unfurls. by Michael Roffman. An important advice: if you want to listen Third, you must be have a subwoofer, because the bass frequencies 's third album is initially more a record to admire than to love, its muscular synthesisers, drum breaks and abrupt endings keeping the tension high. This could have been a witty, self-deprecating disclaimer, warning of typical third album creative bankruptcy. Can an album really be a departure if it's the first thing a group's released in 11 years . But after several listens, Third's majesty unfurls. Barrow, Utley, and Gibbon. Were Third to be Dummy II - Dummy Harder, would anybody mind After all, that album came out in 1994, and it's been 11 years since any new material of any kind emerged from the minds of Messrs. Portishead Third. Darker and bleaker lyrically than their previous work, Third is a sort of re-debut- the band's sound after it has excised every possible remnant of trip-hop from it. Silence Lyrics. To use a weak source of imagery, this is a record Thom Yorke might fall asleep to at night with a twisted, gaping snarl. Full Review. Portishead - Third review: A charm. Instead it provides fair warning that Third is the most stunning, stark and superb Portishead album yet. on April 29, 2008, 1:39am. As radical reinventions go, Third- the first Portishead studio album since 1997- is surprisingly natural. Third is the 2008 album from Portishead. They are a trip-hop group from Bristol, England, named after the nearby town of the same name. On first listen, however, Third plays in a dreary, sleepy fashion, grinding out apocalyptic hymns that seem moreover battle cries than poetic paintings. It is their first release in 10 years, and their first studio album in 11 years. The interesting thing about Third, of course, is that Portishead are one of the few bands who actually COULD get away with releasing the same album again. Importantly, though, they've shaken it. Can an album really be a departure if it's the first thing a group's released in 11 years

When I ordered it, I ordered the numbered limited edition and instead I got this one. Any idea of the quantities made of the un-numbered edition? Also any idea if this was the original thought (to have both numbered and un-numbered editions) or they cut more to fill in the excessive orders, and keeping the 10.000 numbered promise? (which seems to be quite unfair...)
