One of my music idols for over twenty years has been PJ HARVEY. She has has over 8 cds and many side projects as well. The rock critics are gushing and every album has a different feeling with a different type of edge. She sings in many octaves and can belt out some loud noise, and also the softest whisper you have ever heard. She plays guitar and has a reptilian personality. Her performances are amazing — I went to Terminal 5 recently to see her, once again. Her music is quality and also for the explorer. Here is a quick summary of some of Polly Jean’s library:
2011 – Let England Shake – this belongs to the soldiers and the land-quirky
2007 – White Chalk – bare bones piano
2004 – Uh Huh Her – back to raw and hard
2000 – Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea – Straight forward rock
1998 – Is This Desire – Hard and Soft – classic PJ
1995 – To Bring You My Love – epic!!!
1992 – Dry – Stripped down and raw where it all began
