Polly trades in her trusty Telecaster for an auto-harp and sings a haunting set of songs about war seen from a feminine perspective.

Unique and quite brilliant in my opinion.

Powerful, stirring album by an artist I did not immediately take to. Give this music a chance, and it will definitely win you over. PJ Harvey is at her best here. It is really a beautiful experience.

From LedZep
I gave it high rating based on originality, musicianship and cause it's PJ Harvey who I madly respect, not because I actually love it. But I'm 100% certain that at one moment in my life it will just click with me, as so many albums that I had similar experiences with did.

Probably the best album based on England you'll hear in a long-time and a massive achievement for Harvey this far into her career.

How does she do it? Like her contemporary Bjork, PJ Harvey continues to astound and amaze. Let England shake, is a brilliant tribute album to her home country. It's full of fantastic songs, but you wouldn't expect anything less from PJ. Long may she continue to thrill us.

So have listened to this album over 10 times now and there is definitely a drop off after the last great song on this album, 'in the dark places'. This is a good album but for me falls short of great and I would place it behind Rid Of Me, Stories and Dry in her impressive discography.

It's a grower, definitely. The weakest track may be the closing one, but still, it's a great record. One of my favourites of the decade so far.

From Hellaboi
This album is great! Beautiful and haunting!

PJ reinvented her sound.

Is hard to believe that she ever did 'rid of me' when you listen to this album.

I think this her best album, maybe as good as rid of me, I can't decide.

It's pretty decent with some epic songs like Glorious Land but it's not a special album. It has a lot of uninteresting tracks.
