National treasure Polly Jean Harvey's eight studio album "Let England Shake" is a great album and shows that she's still as vital as ever, 4 LONG years have passed since 2007's "White Chalk" even though she did treat us to 2009's collaboration with John Parish, the excellent "A Woman A Man Walked By".

The first we heard of "Let England Shake" was when she appeared on The Andrew Marr Show in April 2010 to perform the title track, The then Prime Minister Gordon Brown was in attendance as Harvey performed the title track which at the time featured a sample from 1950's act The Four Lads and their song "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" it ceartinly wetted our lips of what was to follow and now 10 months later the wait is over and the song is as good as i remembered even though The Four Lads sample has now being removed the Xylophone remains.

The song is great and deals with the English and French armies invasion of Gallipoli which happened during world war 1, so Harvey has no added political themes to her many other that she has explored with her song writing in her 20 year career. With long time collaborators Mick Harvey, John Parish and producer Flood all on board the song sets the stage for one of her best albums yet!
