Back on Familiar Ground, 31 May 2004
I'm happy to see Polly back on familiar ground with this album. Although I enjoyed "Stories" as an album in its own right, I was unable to connect with it the way I had with that album's predecessors; most notably "To Bring". The majority of the pop sheen thrown over "Stories" is gone, to be replaced with the minimalistic brooding force of her earlier works. The bottom line here is that for fans who have been with Polly since her pre-"Stories" days should find this album to be one that sees heavy rotation in the disc changer. For those who jumped on PJ's gypsy band wagon during the "Stories" era, this may not be a palatable cup of tea. I plead with you, though. Give it time; it will grow on you. Better yet, revisit some of her earlier albums to prep yourself before giving "Uh Huh Her" a listen.
