The reunion of the decade! In my humble opinion of course. Its been 10 long years since their Live In New York album. After their initial split in 1999, it seemed like the group was just barely reaching mass appeal. Rumors spoke of creative differences and resistance to the idea of becoming popular by mainstream standards, however they stood by their claim that the breakup was mostly to move on to other projects. Finally in 2005, the band reappeared live for a Tsunami Benefit Concert in their home town of Bristol, England and announced to fans that there was a new album in the works! Third is proof that groundbreaking groups in progressive and alternative music can remain relevant in times of distress and peril in the world. Lead vocalist Beth Gibbons is a guiding light in the dark atmosphere of their sound. After hearing the lead single ''Machine Gun Cough'', it was apparent that this album would have a faster, industrial, and signature moody feel with an added sense of urgency that we are living in troubling times. And in a word, the album is absolutely BRILLIANT!
