Beware of the rule of 3

Eleven years on from their last album, and Portishead have still got it. When began streaming the highly anticipated new album before the official release date, an estimated 250,000 eager listeners flooded the site. The Bristol-based band's third album (appropriately titled Third) was released on Monday and has since sparked debate amongst longtime fans and new listeners alike.

Crap? Genius? You be the judge.
