I'm concerned that I'm starting to present as misogynistic, as this is another female-powered album that eludes me on first listen.

Raw and uncompromising. Dry, the debut album from PJ Harvey, is a fantastically fresh and exciting record full of gritty rock'n'roll. Great songs throughout from an LP that is still one of Harvey's best. This is what it's all about.

A great debut Side 2 (6-11)is better than Side 1 this was one of the last L.P.'s I bought on vinyl and it still sounds great. She went on to bigger and better things but this album is still special for me. Best Tacks - Sheela ....,Hair and O Stella. Oh My Lover, Fountain & Plants & Rags are also good.

Cracking debut. Chaotic and all the better for that. Raw and soul.

A pretty startling debut album from PJ. A few ponderous songs level off my rating a bit, but there's a lot on here that's great, and still fresh: "Victory," O Stella," "Sheela-Na-Gig," "Joe." And "Dress" is one of her best songs.

Sheila-Na-Gig, Dress and O Stella make this her best. And that's saying something.
