4.0 out of 5 stars the return of the old PJ...., 12 Jun. 2004
This review is from: Uh Huh Her (Audio CD)
As a fan of PJ Harvey's older work, in particular 'Is this Desire?', and a lover of her darker, more sinister tone; I have to confess i was a little unsatisfied with her last album, 'Stories from the city....' which i found in parts a little too like pop and rather lacking in substance.
'Uh Huh Her' has done a pretty effective job of winning me back!! Kicking off with the catchy and tough 'The life and death of Mr Badmouth', Harvey shows some of her old style with a return to strong bass, wild vocals and angsty lyrics. Although in my opinion the album still can't compare to 'Is this Desire' , and contains a few easily skip-able tracks which lack a really catchy theme, I find its the tracks that stand out and become caught in your memory that redeem it! Some of the best in my opinion are 'Its you', which has a darker, powerful sound which grows on you in the style of some of her older tracks, 'The life & death of Mr Badmouth', and 'The Letter'.
Overall, this album is well worth buying - possibly more so for fans of her old music before 'Stories..', but i promise parts of this album will grow on anyone who's ever liked Harvey's music - it is more of a mix of all her styles that should please everybody! This one will stay in my C.D player 'till her next release!!
