Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Amazon.com

After fumbling around with producer-from-hell Steve Albini on Rid of Me (1993) and signing with U2 manager Paul McGuinness, Polly Jean Harvey is ready to live up to her lethal early promise at last. With its growling bass tones, "Meet Ze Monsta" sets the stage early on as Harvey explores her feminine psyche with an intensity and raw power unheard since Patti Smith's heyday. Unlike the terminally inconsistent Smith, however, Harvey plots a brilliant course through slippery laments ("Working for the Man"), corrosive testifying ("Long Snake Moan"), and fuzz-toned menace ("Down by the Water"). Skeptics who think Harvey can't outgrow her art-punk base are advised to cue up the flamenco-inflected, string-caressed "Send His Love to Me." --Jeff Bateman

4.0 out of 5 stars Herky-jerky and fascinating June 24, 1998
Format:Audio CD
PJ Harvey has to be about the most underappreciated rock artist out there, bar none. If you're sick of the formula played on pop or alternative radio or think that Lilith Fair's a great idea but doesn't embrace the harder feminine spirit, give PJ Harvey a try. This album may be about as accessible as any of hers (save for the nearly inscrutable "Dry"). She's a challenging artist. Her songs veer from oblique studio concoctions with whispered, highly distorted vocals to upfront soul-baring, confrontational episodes--sometimes consecutively. "Meet Ze Monsta" and "Long Snake Moan" were two of the best full-out rockers that the public never heard in 1995. Harvey opted to release the angular, loungy "Down By The Water" instead, which doesn't do justice to the rest of the album. The two last songs,"Send His Love To Me" and "The Dancer" show PJ Harvey at her most despondent and desperate. "How long must I suffer?/Dear God, I've served my time/This love beomes my torture/This love my only crime," she agonizes over dry, rhythmic flamenco guitar on the former; on the latter, she moans over the loss of a lover "bathed in light and splendor and glory" while an eerie organ and watery guitar strumming mirror her emotion. Spirituality also comes into play here quite often; she speaks of God, Jesus or the devil in at least half her songs. PJ Harvey's not easy--she dives straight to the heart of the wildest emotions. But she deserves credit(and a bigger audience) precisely for being hard--and compelling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Woman-Size June 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
After splitting from her partners Rob Ellis and Steve Vaughn, Polly Jean Harvey spent two years making a CD which would recreate her image. She traded in her heavy combat boots and jeans and tank tops from the men's department for striking brightly-colored dresses. She grew her curly black hair down her back and painted her face with slashes of bright red lipstick and black eyeliner. Essentially, she transformed from a starkly militant asexual performer to a theatrical epitome of femininity. However, as the record proves, this transformation was completely on her terms.
1. To Bring You My Love--A kind of slow, heavy metal song. A real tension builder complete with an organ. Harvey really throws herself into this song with throaty vocals and dramatic lyrics. "And I'd travel over the dry earth and floods; Hell and Highwater to bring you my love. To bring you my love..."
2. Meet Ze Monsta--A song with growling and snarling guitars that crunch and stomp. This is kind of a fun song, probably one of the faster ones on the album. "Yeah, I'm read to meet ze monster tonight."
3. Working for the Man--This one is interesting. It's has a nice beat but it is so quiet that you can barely hear the lyrics. It's worth trying to find them on-line because they are interesting. The song could easily be about a nun or a prostitute. I've heard claims that it is actually about God. It is eerie though to hear Polly Harvey insisting acquiescently, "I'm just working... for the man," as one gets the impression that Harvey would never let herself be subdued thus.
4. C'mon Billy--This is probably the closest PJ Harvey has ever come to producing a folk/country song.

5.0 out of 5 stars ACTUALLY I GIVE IT A SIX OUT OF FIVE August 12, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"To Bring You My Love" is easily my favourite album and one of the very best ever! "The Dancer", the closing track for the album, is one of the most touching, brilliant and utterly devestating songs I have ever heard, along with "Roads" by Portishead. But don't you dare think that this song is the best song in the album, because THIS album doesn't have a best song, they are all flawless masterpieces. Songs like "Meet Ze Monsta" with the lyric "big black monsoon, take me with you" and "Long Snake Moan" are cosmic and terrifying, just amazing pieces of brilliance, surpassing everything Patti Smith has ever done, songs like "Teclo" and "I think I'm a mother" are triumphs of how a song can reach into your soul and just take over, while songs like "C'mon Billy" and "Send his Love to Me" under the beautiful string arrangements hide darker elements, and are characteristic of the album's theme: love. But not the kind of love that you hear from Celine Dion and Co., but destructive, passionate love, love that defies logic. And also death, and religion and your very existence. This is a remarkable album from start to finish. Buy it, put in your stereo, turn out the lights, unplug the phones and you will experience the glory of this album and of PJ Harvey. And don't you dare skip any tracks because the demons in PJ Harvey's closet and in yours will certainly hunt you down and destroy you. It's her voodoo working alright.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep blues December 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I was at first put off by the slick Flood production and the popularity of "Down By the Water". I was definitely more into the rawness of Rid of Me. But years later i see this as one of her best and certainly in a class of its own.
This album comes off with a blues-based impetus. Surely PJ's no stranger to confessional song writing but this one has her sounding like an honest to god 50ft. Queenie. Listen to the title track and hear her yell from the bowels of hell. "Meet Ze Monsta" has that deep fuzz bass that permeates a lot of this album. "Working for the Man" is an incredible sparse groove. Other notables are "Long Snake Moan" and even "Down By the Water".
So many PJ fans just can't get into this record. They either care for early (Dry, Rid of Me) grunge or the later, (Is this Desire, Stories From the City,) more polished recordings. This really stands alone for the production and depth of soul searching she does. A must have.
