From Strangel 12/13/2016 07:01
It took me a while to come around to female angst. When Dry came out I was searching for a Kurt or a Thom express a masculine angst. Because of this I missed the effect of her raw early releases. Naturally, Stories From the City was the revelatory album for me to take a bit of a closer look at PJ. I have learnt to appreciate Dry and Rid of Me but they don't resonate with me me like they would if they'd been a soundtrack to my own youthful angst. Instead, I have gravitated more toward albums like White Chalk that are less revered by the Polly Jean diehards. She also became my badass rock chick crush with her opaque, mysterious persona, and a willingness to explore the challenging themes permeating life experience.

One of the best. She changes her direction and masters it like nobody else. Nothing sounds the same. Even some of the best can get repetitive but never Harvey. Rid of Me & Stories from the City are the two standouts but everything is great from her.

For the past couple decades PJ Harvey has been ultimate example of what female musicians are capable of. From Dry to Let England Shake, she has shown a wide range. She can be dark, gritty, angry, but just as easily she can produce work that is delicate and beautiful. She is not just one of the greatest female musicians, but simply one of the greatest musicians who's ever lived.

A true female rock hero. Got the attitude, great lyricist and some darn fine tunes to boot. Let England Shake is a fine work. Still think there is more to come from her.

One of my favorite singers. She can completely transform her voice from one album to the next. My favorites are "To Bring You My Love" and "Is This Desire?."
...I'm not that big on "Stories" either.

Great artist. One of the founders of girl grunge. She has two really good albums with Rid Of Me and Let England Shake. Stories From The City is way overrated. Stories From the City is one of her weaker efforts.
