Released:
Label: Island Records
There is something pitch perfect in the marriage of Portishead's resonant trip-hop with the grandeur of a symphony orchestra. To be sure, it was a special night in New York City when this gem was enacted (although, two of the tracks were recorded elsewhere). Beth Gibbons' voice is a pleading vibrato siren in a fathoms-deep soundscape, while the live horns, drums and turntables sparkle. Live at Roseland is a swansong of sorts -- though they never officially disbanded, Portishead have been on indefinite hiatus since its release.
