Editors’ Notes

After being rubbed raw by producer Steve Albini for Rid of Me, PJ Harvey split from her band and worked alongside producers Flood (U2, Nine Inch Nails) and John Parish on the her third studio release. Together, they achieve a deeper, richer tone accentuating the bluesy origin of her songwriting. The arrangements, played mostly by Harvey with embellishments from guitarist Joe Gore (Tom Waits), organist Mick Harvey (no relation), and multi-instrumentalist Parish, are kept minimal. The album begins with a stark, blues guitar riff and a lingering e-Bow note as Harvey's voice raises to a distorted rage over the title track. "Meet Ze Monsta" chugs with a machinist rhythm reminiscent of the Stooges. "Teclo," with Harvey on guitar, organ, piano, chimes, and bell, percolates on a circular riff that builds in obsessive desire. Where previous releases focused on her band's explosive intensity, here Harvey sculpts an artful portrait filled with dramatic shadows and fulfilling light.

Customer Reviews

Masterpiece

This album is pure brillance, by far one of the best ever. A must own for everybody. The songs are delivered with so much passion and emotions. Every track is brilliant and never well be skipped. The title track is soulful and sung with such passion and pain. I love the build up of the music. The crunching Meet Ze Monster is really catchy, and youll probably be screaming the chorus after. Working For The Man is haunting and creepy, and has so many interpretations as to who is working. C'mon Billy is beautifuly, very folky. Telco is the weakest strack, but still classic. Long Snake Moan is so ubelievably sexy. Down by the water is amazing, PJ sings it with a range of emotions from a flirtatious manner to a quiet agrresion. I Think Im a Mother is a slower song, I love the static feel to the vocals and the build up. Has a very creeping effect. Send His Love to Me is her best vocal performance on the album. Its an epic song full of pain, lust and torture. The Dancer is a beautiful song, almost like a funeral durdge. Overall the album is a must buy, anyone without is missign out on some amazing music.

I'll say it again - a masterpiece.

This is hands-down one of the greatest albums of the early '90s "alternative" music boom. Every song manages to walk the line between gorgeous and terrifying, and PJ's vocals make every goateed nu-rock tough guy out there look about as frightening as the Power Puff Girls. All hail the Queen!

A Masterpiece

This is a stunning album. From the low, brooding music on the opening track of "To Bring You My Love" through the final notes of "The Dancer," this is like no music I've ever heard before. Harvey is turning her back on the tried and true, experimenting with her darker side. And it's plenty dark. Her lyrics always have a deep sexuality and/or romanticism to them -- this time around, it's with a disturbing but fascinating twist.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

During the early-'90s alternative rock explosion, several female singer/songwriters rose to prominence, but few were as distinctive or as widely praised as Polly Jean Harvey. Over the course of three albums, Harvey established herself as one of the most individual and influential songwriters of the '90s, exploring themes of sex, love, and religion with unnerving honesty, dark humor, and a twisted theatricality. At the outset of her career, she led the trio PJ Harvey, which delivered her stark songs...
