Product Description

Product Description

P.J. HARVEY To Bring You My Love (1995 UK 10-track CD album including CMon Billy & Down By The Water picture sleeve CID8035)

Amazon.co.uk

After fumbling around with hardcore iconoclast producer Steve Albini on Rid of Me (1993) and signing with U2 manager Paul McGuinness, Polly Jean Harvey is ready to live up to her lethal early promise at last. With its growling bass tones, "Meet Ze Monsta" sets the stage early on as Harvey explores her feminine psyche with an intensity and raw power unheard since Patti Smith's heyday. Unlike the terminally inconsistent Smith, however, Harvey plots a brilliant course through slippery laments ("Working For The Man"), corrosive testifying ("Long Snake Moan") and fuzz-toned menace ("Down By The Water"). Sceptics who think Harvey can't outgrow her art-punk base are advised to cue up the flamenco-inflected, string-caressed "Send His Love to Me". --Jeff Bateman

Even though I've had this album for over six years, I had to take this opportunity to try to express how amazing it is. It would be easy to dismiss this album as 'angry chick rock,' but what a mistake that would be! Yes, this album is about relationships with men... about passion and longing and desire and pain and obsession, in almost every context, expressed in so many different ways, from the sublime to the down-and-dirty. The genius of the album lies in its cohesiveness. It is one of those rare works that must be listened to from beginning to end. Rather than a collection of songs, it is an experience that must be heard to be believed.

I can count on the fingers of one hand the albums I own (some 2000) where I like every single track. This is one of them. Polly Harvey's finest hour as a musician / performer and a deeply intense and disturbing listen, shot through with a wonderfully black humour.

The sheer sonic rush of the three-piece Dry and Rid of Me is banished in favour of a much more eclectic mixture of styles, blending some meanacing organs with flamenco and acoustic blues guitars, upon which Polly could weave her vocal magic. And how. She growls, howls, hisses, moans, shrieks, thunders and begs her way through this collection, alternating from lost, crushed girl to potential killer to seductive predator to banshee, frequently within the same song. Like most of Polly's work, it borders on being a concept album, and is all the better for it.

High quality musicianship is evidenced throughout. The greatest compliment you can provide is to say there is nothing to complain about; you don't notice anything wrong, ero, it's excellent. Doesn't happen often that. Production is generally good, though there's some compression. Nothing too bad though, and it's clearly been mixed for a slightly 'dark' sound. There are no stand out tracks, given that they all belong in place, but it contains some of her most famous pieces; Down by the Water, Send His Love to Me, Long Snake Moan and C'mon Billy are all there and ready to suck you in. You can practically see Polly's wry smile in many places; she's a gifted wordsmith, and deliberately ambivalent with her stories.

Enjoy.

I have 2 copies of this on vinyl, both have a slight warp and surface/pressing noise.... you can listen to them without being diverted by the odd tick and pop - and the relatively cheap price... means its just ok. Shame as this is a fantastic L.P. and deserves a 2x45rpm release like most of her records...

Years ago, a friend gave me "Stories from the City, Stories From the Sea". While I loved it, I didn't dare to buy anything else by P J Harvey - in case it wasn't as good.

No worries on that front, 'To Bring You My Love' is a cracker (recommended by Guy Garvey on his 6Music show). I've just ordered "Let England Shake", hopefully it'll be here by the weekend.

So its official; I'm a fan! While I'll leave concert going to the younger and braver, I'm gonna get hours of pleasure listening to the divine Ms Harvey.

This is my favourite PJ Harvey at the moment. I think it is really deep and i love songs like To Bring You My Love, Meet Ze Monster and Teclo. Teclo being my favourite. I think this album really reflects on how she feels as i get the impression she is unlucky in love-"Calling Jesus please. Send his love to me"-Send His Love To Me and also she sings about children in songs like 'C'cmon Billy' and 'Down By The Water'. I would totally recommend this album to anyone and also all of her others. she is a one of a kind artist and by far my favourite singer and yes even above Michelle Branch who i totally adore!

Listening to this album for the first time, I could see that it was not going to be like any other I had bought. Being the first album by P J Harvey that I have bought, I wasn't sure what to expect. I soon realised that this would be music that creates a love-hate relationship for the listener. This is very dark music, darker than anything else in my music collection. Yet, as other reviewers have also pointed out, this darkness seems to draw you in despite yourself. Do not be surprised if this album takes a few plays before you properly get into it.
One of the standout tracks for me is definitely "C'mon Billy", a song in which she addresses the man she has a child with, imploring him not to turn his back on his child.
"Long snake moan" is another superb song, the intro draws you into it as soon as it starts.
"Down by the water" is a chilling song, really quite disturbing. However, despite this, you are still able to see the qualities of the song - Harvey's voice makes it haunting and totally unforgettable.
The only gripe I really have with this album is that I would have liked the lyrics included in the album booklet.
The only real way to find out about this album is to experience it for yourself. If rock music is to your taste, give this a try. Do not expect lots of lovely cliches about love and relationships - you won't get them here. When she talks about love, it is usually the darker side of love.

This is classic rough and ready PJ at her best. You are either gonna love this or hate it. If you have had a bad day/week or year then bung this on and kick a chair over. If everything is cool and rosey in your life then your wasting your time with this, go and buy some Justin Bieber.
