Song of the day: Portishead – Glory Box

Give me a reason not to like this song. In a lot of cases, songs with electrical guitars in them, contain – for my personal taste – too much of it. But not in this Glory Box. Here it is an element that perfectly blends in with the mix of melancholy and restraint that unites the other musical instruments and lead singer Beth Gibbon’s voice. Definitely one of my favorites from the 90’s (also because it contains a sample of a Belgian classic from the 60’s : Daydream by Wallace Collection).
