PJ Harvey : Classic or Dud

Lots to discuss here.

What do you reckon to "Stories from the City..." Return of Sheela-na-gig or a coffee-table Patti Smith?

Is "Rid of Me" her career high, or an overrated Albini dirge?

I can't decide!

Don't know if there's a lot to discuss, you already presented exactly my feelings on La PJ's oeuvre. "Rid of Me" very good. That last one: coffee table Patti Smith. Oh yeah and some mildy interesting electronic stuff in between ;)

Omar, Monday, 19 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

Not really, Omar, I really can't decide whether PJ is still any good or not. That's why I'm interested to get some other views. On first hearing, 'Stories' was a huge let down for the first 6 or 7 tracks and then.... "You said Something" and "Kamikaze" reminded me how good she can be. The Thom Yorke track is crap. I found the 'mildly interesting electronic stuff' (Is this Desire?) actually VERY interesting if a little unfinished, and I was hoping that PJ would go further in that direction. Not so.

As for the other albums, I prefer "To Bring You My Love" to "Dry", "Dry" to "Rid of Me".

Dr. C, Monday, 19 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

I have vaguely undifferentiated love for her work, and I mean that in a good way. ;-) While I've listened to the earliest albums the most by virtue of the fact that, well, they've been around longer, I have yet to be disappointed by what she's doing (and she puts one good live show, methinks). _Stories_ was a wonderful surprise in that it reminded me exactly how great she can get.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 19 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

PJ Harvey is great. I don't really have anything more incisive to say about her. If this was Search/Destroy, I'd say Search: "Rid of Me" the album, "Four Track Demos", her live shows, 'Dress', 'Big Exit', 'Easy' etc. Destroy: Tiresome talk about her nervous breakdowns, much of "Dry", that's about it.

pihkalboy, Tuesday, 20 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

You can't decide? I can. Dud.

the pinefox, Tuesday, 20 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

Dud, definitely. The melodies just don't "click" for me, and her voice is an acquired taste, I guess.

Jack Redelfs, Tuesday, 20 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

I found "Rid Of Me" in a remainder bin once, for cheap, by Mr. Mod insisted that I not waste my money on it. In retrospect, I should have picked it up. Early stuff: classic. Later stuff: "Stories..." is good, but not mindblowing. While she's talented enough, her status as golden girl comes mainly from music critics attempting desperately to seem like they like female artists as much as guy artists. Also note that Mrs. Harvey's music has been known to exert the dread "Tori Amos- effect" over certain fans. Which both counts against the music and cements "classic" status.

Sterling Clover, Wednesday, 21 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

I was this close to getting "Stories...", it was a bit of a slow period and I read some good things on the album, but somewhere in the shop I suddenly couldn't be arsed. Same thing happened with the Wookie album. It all seemed so neat and boring, the Prada shades, the black dress, a New York album, Thom Yorke song, return-to-geetarrr- form, the inevitable praise it was going to get from old fart NY critics. Why settle for ersatz Patti Smith when you accidently find a Dopplereffekt cd? Or am I really missing something important?

Omar, Wednesday, 21 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

New album is definately Patti Smith by numbers, a little strange move I think. Why? Postmodern pastiche? Eh? She is capable of so much more that covering this ground (again). Overproduced, and a slightly boring kind of sound. She's obviously classic though, the songs still hold up (even if I don't like them).

But I do like the new single 'Place Called Home'. A blantantly pop single, but you gotta love it.

Michael, Wednesday, 21 February 2001 01:00 (twenty-three years ago) link

I though she was great, Is this Desire as good, if not better than anything the ever did. The first album remains the best on mind. New album, like the sky collapsing, first track sounds like U2, utterly ghastly ordinaryness. Even the fast tracks just seem to going through the motions.

My friend Christelle is a devout Harvey worshipper, I must admit that the heavy metal side of my likes the Rid of Me record (a brilliantly produced record), but the rest of her output doesn't stand out to me.

However, I saw her perform You Said Something on David Letterman show, and I have to say that that particular performance was one of the best television experiences I've had in my life. If you have a Harvey fan for a friend, ask them if they taped it and go see it with them. Truly trancendent.

Love, Jeff

come on now -- don't we have anything more to say?

josie, Monday, 8 July 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

yeah, I do: she's WAY more interesting than Patti Smith.

Justyn Dillingham, Tuesday, 9 July 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

I loved "A Perfect Day, Elise" - the mysterious third-person narratives, the mildly industrial backing, the overall distanced effect that she goes for on that album and perfects on that particular track. Is This Desire? as a whole reeks of the Bronte sisters, and is all the better for it.

Tim, Tuesday, 9 July 2002 00:00 (twenty-one years ago) link

two years pass...
Maybe time to revive this thread, though certainly there was enough over here:

"Uh Huh Her." Thoughts on the new PJ Harvey?

...to keep us going for a while.

However, talking about her as a whole -- I'm going through a relisten of everything building up to the show on Tuesday (might even dig up all the B-sides if I can manage it), and that meant Dry earlier (good songs, couple of great performances, strong without being compelling) and Rid of Me now (holy fuck what a great album -- what a *GREAT* album).

It seems to me that she's very easily slipped over the line that separates initially promising start to ever more unique figure to finally someone with an actual continuing career well over a decade while still remaining interesting, to me at least. And all on the same label still, eight albums on (allowing for the fact that Dry got picked up by Island here and counting the Parish collaboration). Not bad, more thoughts later...

PJ and the band are on fire at the moment, one of the best live acts I've ever seen. Effortlessly upstaged a classic 'T in the Park' line-up this year, The Pixies not excluded.

I played part of "Kamikaze" when I DJed on friday night. It was awesome. Drunk indie girl hugged me!

sometimes i like to pretend i am very small and warm (ex machina), Monday, 25 October 2004 07:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Okay, so today so far 4-Track Demos (yes, yes, a contrast to Albini and all but it actually works very well in its own right and I really like the songs that didn't make the final album cut) and right now To Bring You My Love (exactly why did I forget that "Long Snake Moan" was so spectacular again?).

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 25 October 2004 15:47 (nineteen years ago) link

live she is even better than on record. saw her once in munich where i went to see giant sand. giant sand were good but she totally blew them away with a performance of an intensity i have rarely seen before. she rocks hard, she has the blues and she has the voice of a lioness. breathtaking.

alex in mainhattan (alex63), Monday, 25 October 2004 17:58 (nineteen years ago) link

damn, this is making me really regret not seeing her at 9:30 club the other day for 20 bucks. I won't even mention what I went to see instead...

"Sheela-na-gig" has been on repeat for several days now in Winamp.

Richard K (Richard K), Monday, 25 October 2004 18:20 (nineteen years ago) link

alright i'm gonna 'out' myself as a fan (i said fan not stalker)

been with her stuff since 'sheela'

live performances in the past have been disappointing against the records *but* a recent live encounter proved her at the at the absolute apex top of her game. great tunes/performance/band the whole thing.

catch while you can...

So?

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 25 October 2004 21:13 (nineteen years ago) link

"Long Snake Moan" is my favourite song on To Bring You My Love, Ned. The opening is stunning.

Tim Finney (Tim Finney), Monday, 25 October 2004 23:44 (nineteen years ago) link

That's for damn sure. And I even had the volume down and it stopped me in my tracks!

Dance Hall is indeed a very good album as you said over on the monster thread, but I think it's very subtle and requires a lot of relistening -- it's about the only album that the cover of "Is That All There Is?" aside I can't immediately recall a full song from it, even though I've heard it a lot. Hrm.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Monday, 25 October 2004 23:46 (nineteen years ago) link

Ok what heckle should I throw at her, tonight?

(if I were the "heckling type", which is not necessarily the case)

Thea (Thea), Monday, 25 October 2004 23:48 (nineteen years ago) link

Totally agree she is better live. For me records = hmmm, not bad. Live = Christ, I'm glad I went to this show!

Ned, if you get up to the front, please demand that she play "Heart-Shaped Box."

Or "Trigger Cut," whichever. Kthxbye :)

Raymond Cummings (Raymond Cummings), Tuesday, 26 October 2004 14:31 (nineteen years ago) link

Sike, Ned. I don't know where those posts came from.

I say classic, if only for Rid Of Me (which I only own on tape and never can listen to for this reason, really really REALLY need to get it on CD), To Bring You My Love, and Uh Huh Her. Everything else is pretty good (Dry) to crap (Dance Hall).

Raymond Cummings (Raymond Cummings), Tuesday, 26 October 2004 14:34 (nineteen years ago) link

Is This Desire? is so damned murky. This isn't a criticism, it's more a wonderful weird surprise. What a strange, distanced album. I think it has something to do with Flood. Its peers would be Depeche's Ultra and Tricky's Pre-Millenial Tension.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 26 October 2004 16:03 (nineteen years ago) link

Stories, meanwhile, is the trebly response, the weird nervous live wire most though not all of the time. Jittery, that's this album, like everything's a little too wound up and on the verge of shaking itself apart. It's really very good, and isn't as slick as some would say it is.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 26 October 2004 17:15 (nineteen years ago) link

Ned - were you there, last night? I loved her and the show right down to her little striped socks and yes, it reminded me of how many strong songs she's given us over the years.

Thea (Thea), Tuesday, 26 October 2004 18:53 (nineteen years ago) link

No, not last night, am going tonight. To assuage Momus, I presume it will be nothing but Bjork covers done WITH Bjork.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Tuesday, 26 October 2004 18:56 (nineteen years ago) link

Drat. Well I stood with John Lewis-formerly-of-KUCI, what do you think of that.

I wonder if she'll play the same set. If I weren't packing boxes I'd go again.

Great, great show. End of the main set -- a Fall cover in homage to Peel, "The Whores Hustle and the Hustlers Whore" and a version of "Meet Ze Monsta" that was astonishing. End of the first encore -- "Is This Desire?," an impossibly fragile version.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 27 October 2004 16:01 (nineteen years ago) link

i saw her in santa cruz at the catalyst a few months ago and it was easily one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Soukesian, Wednesday, 9 May 2007 07:11 (seventeen years ago) link

That Peel Sessions disc is kinda incomplete, though, if I'm not mistaken. Didn't she once do "Long Time Comin'" for Peel? One of my favorite Polly performances ever, that.

JN$OT, Wednesday, 9 May 2007 07:51 (seventeen years ago) link

Hmmm, interesting but not a lot of fun to listen to? For me anyway.

idk is white chalk fun to listen to? the new one feels like it sits next to that one more than anything imo. the songs certainly have been creeping into me slowly like some kind of mold. and i think there's audible wonder in the realm harvey/parish/flood are creating with the wispiest gestures

a fragmented account of things that seem intimately woven into each other (e.g. the recurrence of figures like "wyman-elvis" and the repeated interpolations/inversions of "love me tender"). songs can be static as a photograph or mutant as the ground of a swamp. like sifting through the damaged remains of something long after its ended, but also finding something eternal in it, something that's being repeated over and over again behind the skin of reality, like a heartbeat

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Tuesday, 11 July 2023 16:35 (ten months ago) link

It's a more compelling listen than White Chalk, which at the time I tagged as the first chapter in a phase we wouldn't see -- until now: skeletal by design, testing her vocal range. The lyric sheet looks like transcribed Geoffrey Hill poems, and her own lyrics have his curiosity about English myths and folklore.

the new yorker interview is v good.

let england shake had been the first thing id liked of hers for a while, a long while. and hope 6 left me cold. but this album is really working its way into me. at first i felt the music was a little weak - just a sort of funereal pattering and chiming - the field recordings, the interleaving of themes and phrases, her voice of course, create the feeling of a whole work - almost a song cycle (listening to Abrahamsen’s Let Me Tell You cycle of songs comprising only words used by Ophelia in Hamlet, from Paul Griffiths’ novel of the same name, is the closest recent listening experience i’ve had). i’m still circling around it, still a bit hesitating and uncertain - the slightness of it - but it feels pretty magical to me. a scrap of something in the wind caught on barbed wire on a country walk.

Fizzles, Sunday, 23 July 2023 19:11 (ten months ago) link

i think it was the nether edge that first switched me on to the album.

Fizzles, Sunday, 23 July 2023 19:15 (ten months ago) link

three months pass...

She was every bit as good as I'd hoped and expected at the recent live show (I went to the second night in Glasgow).

Given that, I'm more than a little tempted by the London show that's just been announced for next year at Gunnersbury Park. What's that like as a venue, if anyone has been? I also only know Big Thief from the others on the bill, in case there's anything in particular I should check out to aid decision making.

PJ Harvey announces her only London summer performance of 2024 at Gunnersbury Park, a Grade II listed parkland venue within walking distance of Acton Town and Ealing Broadway, on Sunday 18th August 2024.

PJ Harvey says, “I’m grateful to Gunnersbury Park for inviting me to curate this event. I have chosen what I feel to be some of the most exciting artists working today. With them I hope to be able to give the audience an emotional, heartening and uplifting experience.”

The line-up includes special guests Big Thief, Tirzah, and Shida Shahabi.

brain (krakow), Monday, 23 October 2023 12:11 (seven months ago) link

Saw her last month and all I can say is her current show is insanely good—perhaps not surprisingly, I have never seen her be anything less than stellar live, but she still exceeded my expectations. She had a small four-person backing band featuring John Parish and James Johnston from Gallon Drunk/Bad Seeds and a pretty simple but theatrical staging (old furniture scattered all over lol). The first half focused just on I Inside the Old Year Dying performed from the beginning to the end (and boy how this album comes alive in concert!) and then the second hour was pretty much a back catalogue dive, from Let England Shake through favs from Is This Desire (“The Garden”!) and To Bring You My Love to early work like "Man-Size" or "Dress". Vocally impeccable and she hasn’t lost an ounce of her charisma.

And yes, she’s doing festivals/open air shows in Europe next year and then a tour of the US in the fall—don’t miss!

I've been working my way through the mass of Harvey vinyl I've acquired in the past couple of years (demos, B-sides box, neglected albums).

Let England Shake demos might be my favorite demo disc. It's startling to hear those songs paired back and raw.

Hope Six demos are better than the actual album. If she had just released those through a web site or as a smaller project it would probably have a better reputation. It's still not great by any means, but smallness helps it.

Cow_Art, Monday, 4 December 2023 14:29 (five months ago) link

Let England Shake demos might be my favorite demo disc. It's startling to hear those songs paired back and raw.

gave several of the demo discs a partial listen over the past day; some are interesting, some are not; some have replay value, some don't (some of the ones for Is this Desire sounds like the demos were just overdubbed and worked on to become the final versions). The most illuminating thing about Let England Shake was how those songs appear to have been written around samples from other tracks; suddenly "gonna take my problems to the united nations" makes total sense, the entire drum rhythm for the song comes from Summertime Blues.

Great new interview / live session from World Cafe:
https://www.npr.org/sections/world-cafe/2023/12/15/1219342795/pj-harvey-album-i-inside-the-old-year-dying

Offers some candid insights into writing Hope 6:

I can remember whilst I was writing The Hope Six Demolition Project album, which was the album prior to this one, it felt like hard work. I had to really graft to get anything good, and that seemed to continue. And even the songs that I was writing, I felt like they were just missing the mark for what I really wanted to be doing. It was such a struggle, and it was not enjoyable. I thought, “I’m not enjoying this, this is feeling more like homework you’ve got to do than the love of my life”. And I just kept thinking, “Keep working through it, just work through it, it will pass”. And it didn’t, really.
