  5. Wow. Good stuff. Does anybody remember the song that Portishead tune samples for the strings? I think it might be Isaac Hayes — and I think Tricky samples it on MAXINQUAYE too, though I might be mixing it up with something else…

  13. This guy’s tone is amazing! I have to admit I’m not familiar with the original, but this guy sounds like he has enough talent to make his *own* originals!

  15. This Jools Holland reworking of Velvet isn’t too great in my opinion. I like the POPMart-esque vocals from Bono, but the music doesn’t suit the song at all.
