10. It’s Complicated Being A Wizard, 2007

Portugal. The Man – It's Complicated Being A Wizard Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

“Good album, complicated for a first time listener. I’m still trying to figure out exactly what the concept is. The album it self is divided into two parts: It’s Complicated Being A Wizard and its separate movements. It’s a 23 minute ep that is copy pasted, basically. This is great for when you really want to listen to one particular part but don’t feel like sitting through however long of the entire song.”

9. The Majestic Majesty, 2009

The Majestic Majesty - Album by Portugal. The Man | Spotify

“Although not all of this album’s songs were meant to be played mainly in acoustic versions, such in the case of Lovers in Love that almost loses all its sparks from The Satanic Satanist; they sure ‘feels’ like were supposed to be heard in that ‘raw’ manner. Overall good album to chill in a beach or somewhere with your friends that jam to late 2000’s indie rock scene; or to wander around, and even in a road trip.”

8. Waiter:”You Vultures!”, 2006

“The beginning of an epic journey for the amazing and ever so diverse musical stylings of Portugal. The Man. An excellent 1st release in my opinion but you can tell some of the tracks aren’t quite up to par with the absolute greatness of the later releases. With that being said it is still a must have for any indie rock fan or Portugal. The Man fan. My favorite song would have to be AKA M80 The Wolf. But Gold Fronts, Stables And Chairs, How The Leopard Got Its Spots, Elephants, and Waiter are all very stellar as well.”

6. American Ghetto, 2010

Portugal. The Man - American Ghetto LP

“Portugal. The Man continue their effort to sound as much like Oasis as possible, but, fortunately, put enough of their own spin on it to make listening worthwhile. Really what you expect from them: a fun, solid album that might not be game changing but makes you want to listen again.”

5. Woodstock, 2017

Portugal. The Man - Woodstock Lyrics and Tracklist | Genius

“This is the first time where it sounds like their major label is influencing their sound. I always thought they’ve kept their artistic integrity since signing to Atlantic but now these songs are sounding squeaky clean and even more radio friendly than ever. They even feature a rapper on “Mr. Lonely”. Sure, some of the neo-psychy stuff from the previous few albums shows up here a bit but this is still firmly rooted in the radio pop arena. It’s got some decent hooks but ends up my least favorite of their full length records so far due to average songwriting. “Keep On” is the only song that grabbed my attention.”

4. Censored Colors, 2008

Portugal The Man - Censored Colors Cd - 17.00€ : Denovali Record Store -  Online Store for Electronic, Ambient, Jazz, Drone, Soundtracks, Indie,  Noise, Modern Classical & more

“This album is incredible! It is such a drastic step from Church Mouth, which had a very 70’s classic rock approach to it. This album has amazing choir-like vocals. The only difference is that it still incorporates the hooks of the songs. It’s like gang vocals done in a church. The lead vocals are nicely blended with the rest of the music which I didn’t think they did as good of a job on their previous albums. He has such a unique voice, that it can easily be overdone.”

2. In The Mountain In The Cloud, 2011

In the Mountain in the Cloud - Album by Portugal. The Man | Spotify

“Well the thing about this album is it has a considerable amount of basic poppy filler. But I would say most of the songs are really dang good. And one of them is a modern indie rock masterpiece, that being “Sleep Forever”, which is really quite freaking amazing.”

1. Evil Friends, 2013

Evil Friends by Portugal. The Man (Album, Indie Rock): Reviews, Ratings,  Credits, Song list - Rate Your Music

“This was an interesting mash of stuff. The base lies somewhere within indie rock, but the band has created a quite nice somewhat noisy sound with also some non typical indie elements. Yet they also manage to vary themselves very well. Lots of various layers and elements in there, but pleasantly produced so nothing is overdone imho. Enjoyable.”
