First I had no idea who Beth Gibbons was and of Portishead I had only vaguely heard of. Then I read the raving review in the Rolling Stone and bought it (yes, there were times were I bought cd's without having listened to them before).
I didn't love the album instantly, it was too weird, dark and out of this world for me first. But after a while I started to adore it...and especially this song. Songs like that I always compare to the feeling you have when you slowly glide into a hot bath...comforting, relaxing, special and secure.
