4.0 out of 5 stars Queen Of Rock, 13 Dec. 2000
This review is from: 4-Track Demos (Audio CD)
I am not a huge fan of the artist and genre in question (I'm more of a Kate Bush/Tori Amos man), but forget all the (questionable) female 'rock' artists such as the whimsical Alanis Morrisette and the dull Sheryl Crow (yawn), Polly Jane Harvey is the undisputed Queen of Rock, and this album, a small work of genius. '4-Track Demos' is perhaps the most 'difficult' of her offerings, but also the most rewarding. The first few times I listened to it I was dissapointed as it lacked the gentle haunting quality of her recent work. However, the raw guitar sound which dominates the album, both belies and facilitates its complex thematic and deeply emotional content. '4-Track Demos' is the most immediate and integral albums I have ever listened to and is a must for any fans of contemporary rock music. Bliss.

Absolutely agree what you say about this album, P.J. Harvey ... and the hugely overrated Morrisette and Crow too. As I commented to another reviewer, I think P.J. Harvey is one of the best rock artists of the last 20 years. And if we talk about female rock artists from 1990 up until now, the only other name that comes to my mind as a worthy one is Ani DiFranco. But P.J. Harvey is the absolute genius.
