Reseña de álbum

Following the tour for Rid of Me, Polly Harvey parted ways with Robert Ellis and Stephen Vaughn, leaving her free to expand her music from the bluesy punk that dominated PJ Harvey's first two albums. It also left her free to experiment with her style of songwriting. Where Dry and Rid of Me seemed brutally honest, To Bring You My Love feels theatrical, with each song representing a grand gesture. Relying heavily on religious metaphors and imagery borrowed from the blues, Harvey has written a set of songs that are lyrically reminiscent of Nick Cave's and Tom Waits' literary excursions into the gothic American heartland. Since she was a product of post-punk, she's nowhere near as literally bluesy as Cave or Waits, preferring to embellish her songs with shards of avant guitar, eerie keyboards, and a dense, detailed production. It's a far cry from the primitive guitars of her first two albums, but Harvey pulls it off with style, since her songwriting is tighter and more melodic than before; the menacing "Down by the Water" has genuine hooks, as does the psycho stomp of "Meet Ze Monsta," the wailing "Long Snake Moan," and the stately "C'Mon Billy." The clear production by Harvey, Flood, and John Parish makes these growths evident, which in turn makes To Bring You My Love her most accessible album, even if the album lacks the indelible force of its predecessors.

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.

Años de actividad: '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...
