4.0 out of 5 stars Thankfully Not "Stories......", 12 Jan. 2005
By A Customer
This review is from: Uh Huh Her (Audio CD)
I would like to start by saying that "Stories...", to my mind, doesn't quite "fit" into Polly Harvey's remarkable ouevre. I also got the feeling that the Mercury people were merely acknowledging Harvey's immense talent at that time because they had(rather rudely)ignored her previous work. Uh Huh Her is a return to form of the highest order with all the elements of the Harvey craft in evidence. "The Letter" in particular is a proper Peej number in sound and sentiment. If "Rid Of Me" was too harsh and TBYML to pastoral then get involved with this. It seems to contain all the best elements of previous work whilst, in a way, summarising her career to date. Personally, I never listen to "Stories..." but constantly revisit all the others and that to me is the acid test.
