A Woman A Man Walked By is fantastic. You have the guitar stompers "Blacked Hearted Love", the frenzied "16,15,14" and "The Chair", the piano laden ethereal tracks "The Soldier" and "Leaving California" and the achingly beautiful "April" and "Passionless Pointless". Each song takes from a section of PJ's career while maintaining a new identity (grungy banjo!). For those waiting for screaming madness I highly recommend "Pig Will Not" and the title track for maximum impact but there's no poor track on the album. Well done PJ and John.

It is interesting that most of the critical reviews on here make the assumption that this album has only received high ratings from die-hard PJH fans. I am not a diehard fan, in fact until very recently I had not really heard any of her stuff, but I think this album is excellent. The first track is probably the most conventional but as a consequence is also the least engaging. What follows will not appeal to everyone - but anyone willing to stretch them-self a little will find the experience rewarding. I would not recommend this, however, if you like your music safe and predictable - stick with Coldplay.

Each track provides a different view and style, this shows true genius - can PJ Harvey go wrong? Each album peels back a layer, I really can't fault one album - each is a new side and never a repeat from previous creations.

From this album I particularly like "Black Hearted Love" and "A Woman A Man Walked By / The Crow Knows Where All The Little Children Go", particularly the latter whcih is raw, experimental and if playing in your car makes you turn down the volume if you have your window open with a little polite society guilt. I'm sure with time other tracks will bolt on to my favourites. This is a true test of a good album, continual listens unveil new treasures - you have to work at it to reap the rewards.

If you've heard her previous collaboration with John Parish you will know what to expect. If you haven't, this will come as a breath of fresh air to PJ Harvey fans. With Parish there is a mix of low key organ music - which he give wonderful "end of the pier"/freak show/church hymn connotations - to spiky, percussive guitar tunes that let Harvey do the loud abrasive tunes she so excels at.

Harvey's lyrics are a mix of uncomfortably confessional, or unsettling and edgy. They are also cleverly constructed; Leaving California she plays on the similar sounds leaving, living, loving have to superficially suggest a positive theme where the opposite exists. The opening track Black Hearted Love, is PJ at her best - the opening stress of her singing matched by Parish on an elongated first beat. There is an ethereal quality to "The Soldier" carried over from her previous album White Chalk.

Yet another really good offering from PJ Harvey and John Parish. This pair should make more music together.

PJ Harvey has always been on the individualistic side of things, being to my mind pretty difficult to classify or put into a box. Her style has varied so much - from the seedy grunge of To Bring You My Love (which is where my connection with PJ starts), to the smart rock of Stories, to the sparse folk anthems of White Chalk. And with this latest album, she's combined it all to produce a varied musical landscape bringing together all of her previous musical styles and adding something indelibly new and PJH to it.

Highlights for me: she always opens her albums with strong numbers, and this is no exception. Black Hearted Love is an accomplished rock belter that sets the bar high; there's something that actually scares me a little about the way she sings the words "lilly-livered little parts" in that mocking, unhinged falsetto in the title track - I really would not want to be on the receiving end of this song's fury, but I do love listening to it; the understated simplicity of The Soldier (a bit like some of the quieter moments of White Chalk); and almost-final track Passionless, Pointless - a sophisticated, polished ethereal masterpiece.

Another intelligent, rich fabric of music from PJ, and a must-have.

'Dance hall at Louse point' is perhaps one of my favourite albums of Polly's! It's a dark-horse album which the fans may have overlooked, so in the light of this, i was really excited to learn of a new album with John Parish called 'A Woman a Man Walked By'!
Polly has racked up so many albums with so many feelings and emotions that i was interested to see which route I would be taken this time!
With John Parish providing the music Polly has written some of her best and most expressive lyrics to date, combine this with her many personas which she adopts on practically every track and you have an amazing album!
Polly's albums have always been musical alchemy for me, give each song time and it becomes precious to you! This album needs a few listens, with the listener in different moods, to really come alive!
All of Polly's work has a door which you have to really push against for it to open, but once inside the room is beautiful, vicious, angry, delicate and ethereal.
This album is yet another great work from Polly & John and will sit well with "most" fans who want some grit back after the dream world of 'White Chalk'.
Recommended, in fact essential.
