“Take me back to England
& the grey, damp filthiness of ages
fog rolling down behind the mountains
& on the graveyards, and dead sea-captains.”
PJ Harvey, The Last Living Rose

Product Description

Amazon.com

How can someone so unpredictable behave so predictably? Every time PJ Harvey releases something sophisticated and clean like 2000's Mercury Music Prize tipped Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea, it just about guarantees a contradictory follow-up album is around the bend. Her ambitious 1992 debut, Dry, inspired the bitter death rattle of Rid of Me. Her third offering, 1995's elegant To Bring You My Love, gave way to the stormy Is This Desire?. Harvey's sixth solo album, Uh Huh Her, doesn't disappoint. It's a nasty riposte to the success of its predecessor, built on grubby blues-punk riffs and the brooding, primal howl that Harvey uses when she wants to impersonate a she-wolf. Some of it seems disappointingly remedial ("The Letter," "Cat on the Wall"), but the best material ("The Desperate Kingdom of Love," "Who the Fuck?") just reconfirms that no matter how raw the British songwriter serves it up, the beauty of her work is undeniable. --Aidin Vaziri

4.0 out of 5 stars PJ Harvey's Most Intimate Album Yet June 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
PJ Harvey belongs to that small group of musicians -contemporary artists, really- who are expected, and so necessary, to navigate times of pretense, caution and despair. When so many former figures of iconoclastic Rock disappear into the woodwork of making the charts and grasping for Grammies, PJ Harvey can be counted on to be uncompromising and expose herself first.
See, for me even more than the justified expectation of some great new music from a personal favorite, PJ Harvey's work represents the desire for more songs from an authentic voice, an uncompromising wail of dissent toward mediocrity and complacency -if you don't believe me, check out what happened with Liz Phair.
For this alone, it had already been too long to wait for a new album, specially given the power and poetic density of her most recent predecessor, the superb Mercury Prize winning "Stories by the Sea ...," and I welcomed excitedly the arrival of "Uh Huh Her."
In terms of artistic integrity, this album does not disappoint, from the menacing chords of the first song to the "in-your-face" pleading of "The Letter."
Overall, in my opinion, "Uh Huh Her" is not musically groundbreaking, and although I don't mean this as an automatic put-down, I initially thought of Harvey's choice to produce all songs and play all instruments -except drums- as a choice that limited the kind of emotional range her music often has. There's always a creative danger to doing it all yourself, no one else to listen to, dare you in different directions or push you beyond your, however large, musical envelope.
Yet, as I stay with her songs -rather than be distracted by my own expectations- I realize that where this album will stretch your perceptions of PJ Harvey's work is in her lyrics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, just not that good... June 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Though 2000's "Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea" garnered her some of the best reviews of her career, it left many of Polly Jean Harvey's more diehard fans aghast. You can see why - in a volte face similar to what Hole managed on "Celebrity Skin", Harvey had shed much of the angst and insecurity of her previous work and created an alarmingly FM-friendly record. Most people were content to cheer her on (indeed, she won the coveted Mercury Music Prize in her native UK), but some of the devoted few couldn't help grumbling that "their Polly" had been lost amidst a suspiciously AOR gloss and lyrics about guns, drugs and Manhattan.
Suffice to say that the latter are in for a treat here. "Uh Huh Her" has more in common with Harvey's "difficult" work ("Is This Desire?", the John Parish collaboration "Dance Hall at Louse Point") than it does with "Stores...". It's not the most comfortable of listens, replete as it is with couplets along the lines of It's You's "When I'm not with you I walk dark tunnels of my heart / When I'm not with you everything comes apart". Passionate, heart-on-the-sleeve stuff, yes, but - as anyone who's read Prozac Nation will know - that can all get a bit much after a while.
A more compelling criticism is that some of what's on offer here feels a little, well, half-baked. "The Slow Drug" sounds like a B-side, "The End" is just a throwaway instrumental, and the affecting "No Child of Mine" ends almost as soon as it's started. Seeing as how this comes on the back of a four-year hiatus, you might have been forgiven for expecting a bit more.
Not up there with the best of Harvey's work, then, but "Uh Huh Her" is not without its merits.

5.0 out of 5 stars harvey's best album yet June 8, 2004
Format:Audio CD
with UH HUH HER, i think pj harvey has managed to successfully combine a beatifully produced pop sound (at times)- and still perform at her raw, gutteral, emotional best.
where DRY was raw and jarring and heart, and STORIES FROM THE CITY, ETC. was all polish, UH HUH HER is filled with emotionally powerful songs that still manage to be nicely produced and even, i admit, catchy (of course, while i loved the songs on DRY, i hated the production).
think of your favorite songs from TO BRING YOU MY LOVE and DANCE HALL AT LOUSE POINT and you will have a pretty good idea of the feel of this album. "meet ze monster" would be at home on this album. only, with UH HUH HER that quality (though not the tone) is consistent throughout.
from the raw, powerful opening of "the life and death of mr. badmouth" ("your lips/taste poison") to the more melodic "pocket knife" ("can't you see my pocket knife/you can't make me be your wife") the album is full of the kind of music that fans of harvey love her for -- without seeming stale, or a retread of past efforts.
there are one or two missteps, but i think UH HUH HER is harvey's most consistently high quality album, both raw and melodic, emotional and well structured.
i've listened to it four or five times in the last two days, and while it may be too soon to tell, i'm pretty sure this is my favorite of her albums -- with every listen, i like it better.

5.0 out of 5 stars PJ at her most intimate April 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
First I want to say I'm not a music critic and this is my first review, ever. I'm gonna try to be as eloquent as my fellow reviewers, but it's not easy. I can, however, gush on about

what a nutofafan I am of Ms. Polly Jean Harvey and would like to share my thoughts on what an extraordinary artist she truly is. I want to start here with UH HUH HER because I feel some of you have been quite brutal, to say the least, when it comes to reviewing this album! Y'all should chill the f*** out! haha, no, but seriously some of you's should not be stating your opinions, especially those who gave this album one or two stars. Pfft! What's that?! Get outta here! That's just ridiculous because this is an amazing album, deserving of all five stars.

I have been a fan of PJ Harvey since 94 when a friend insisted I listen to RID OF ME (thank you, Cynthia!). I then went and bought DRY (love, love!) and waited anxiously for TO BRING YOU MY LOVE to hit the stores. I knew along the way I was forever in love with this tiny strange woman who is Polly Jean. She is unlike any other. Her music haunts me, her lyrics worthy of poems, leaving me in awe of what a most excellent storyteller and a gifted musician she is. You oughta see her play that guitar! While ROM is still my fave, the truth is I love all her albums. I own all her CDs and have seen her in concert on numerous occasions. The girl kicks arse live! Her CDs are on constant rotation all around me because she has an album to suit every mood. All of her albums are quite different, but each is distinctly PJ. Each touch my heart and evoke a sense of longing.. almost an etherealness, if you will. Because I was introduced to and fell in love with the .. (and this is where I wish I had the vocabulary of a music critic) ..
