Revolver - Album Review - Winter 2000
"All The Reviews That Fit In Print"
PJ Harvey Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea
Few rockers evoke the mythic, the elemental, as deftly as Harvey, but this is ambitious even by her standards. Fortunately, she's entirely up for the challenge, offering raucous abandon with "Big Exit," the smoldering sensuality of "One Line," and bitter poetry in "The Whores Hustle and The Hustlers Whore." Add in a lovely, low-key duet with Thom Yorke, "This Mess We're In," and these Stories seem just about perfect.
