EDITORS’ NOTES

From the ripping opener, “Big Exit,” to the gossamer “We Float,” PJ Harvey’s New York album—Patti Smith and Television homages are duly observed—returns the guitar-led rockism of Dry and Rid of Me to center stage, while grabbing us by the throat with a ringing immediacy unmatched elsewhere in her faultless catalog. It’s a polished synthesis of all the things we’d previously loved about her, rendered in shimmering new colors.
