First up for this evening, another Jon S. contribution, as he continues to educate me on PJ Harvey, with whom I was fairly unfamilar.... now that I'm back at work (I work out of a pickup truck all day), I can at least spend all day listening to music, so I'm getting acquainted with some of the new (to me) submissions.... anyway, thanks to Jon S. (and everyone ELSE who contributes, I LOVE guest contributions) for all of your work, hope you and John N, Jonder, Brian, and ANYONE else continue to send stuff in to share with the masses.
Is This Desire? (1998) and Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea (2000) are, maybe, the most interesting of PJ Harvey's albums. Is This Desire? is like the culmination, a distillation, of everything that came before. Stories is new and different, and no PJ Harvey album after it sounds like anything she'd done. The shows from this time are absolutely fantastic as well.
