Just dropped from PJH (although floating around on NPR for a while). Man...as a fan who'd be happy to spin 4-Track Demos
, any time I needed a taste of Ms. Harvey...each record since Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea
has been a real challenge. I keep expecting Rid Of Me
to come roaring out of the speakers; but I guess she's
let go of that time and sound, and I need to as well. However, this record seemed almost a laughable
departure when I first heard it. How could this even be the same gal that gave us 50-Ft Queenie
But if you give it a chance, it's haunting and engages you in its own way. I mean, I'll still take the gal that howled "how much more can you take from me"...but this is still good work.
