Good but not brilliant,
This review is from: Uh Huh Her (Audio CD)
PJ's last album, Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea, was genius - packed as it was with brilliant, inventive songs which were as deep as they were catchy. So what went wrong with Uh Huh Her? The album is an incoherant jumble with minimalistic, dare I say it self-indulgent, instrumentation with a moaning set of lyrics which we had really hoped P.J had grown out of.
While the songs are solid, there's little in the way of the instantly likable tunes which we were treated to on Stories and not enough occasions for for PJ's powerful voice to strut its stuff.
Uh Huh Her is still a good album and PJ fans will enjoy it but just don't expect anything like the brilliant Stories or you'll be setting yourself up for a fall. Disappointing.
