Dummy by R. J. Wheaton is another compelling read about the seminal album from the British band Portishead. There's lots of detailed information about how the record was recorded and the impact of the album and the context of the scene from which it came from. I was a big fan of the short-lived triphop genre, in that I have an affection for other bands from the genre like Massive Attack, Sneaker Pimps, and Morcheeba. I enjoyed going back to the album to hear what Wheaton was describing. My only complaint about the book was the haphazard way in which it was organized. It wasn't organized by song order or even chronologically. That being said I learned a lot about the band and the album.
