When artists such as PJ Harvey manage to reinvent their musical world everytime they want, are brave enough to do so with a 180 turn, and are talented enough to pull it off brilliantly, then all those taking a fancy to her work should feel very happy...well...I do!! She has trodden a rather lonely road in a world where truly gifted musicians are very hard to come by, but she has always done it with style, confidence, tons of raw, sexually charged energy, and loads of talent. All of a sudden she gives us (her fans) White Chalk. I was taken aback, like many of you must have been too. It's eerie, it's calm and balmy, it's ethereal, it's earthy and also mystical, it's primal, it is a very… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely stunning !, 7 May 2006
I'll tell you one thing...after viewing this DVD it'll be very difficult to "leave" your room "quietly". PJ Harvey did not want it to be a "smooth, slick concert" and this is exactly what she delivered. It's a very personal, sometimes self-conducted, collection of interviews and moments on stage, and behind the stage, exuding sensuality and the raw energy of PJ Harvey's concerts with song covering most of her career. At the same time, this brilliantly directed glimpse of what being on the road with PJ Harvey feels like is also an intimate portrait of the "Uh Huh Her" tour. Despite the fact that her fans had been long waiting for the release of this DVD, the waiting was all worth while as… Read more
