#427: To Bring You My Love by PJ Harvey

2.28.2011


To Bring You My Love by PJ Harvey (1995)

Favorite Track(s): "C'mon Billy" and "Send His Love to Me"

Thoughts: LOVE the album name and cover. Stellar.

Things I didn't know about PJ Harvey: 1) her style of music, 2) she's British, 3) all the instruments she can play, 4) so...most things, really.

We haven't had a lady (unless you count Gwen Stefani in No Doubt, which you can if you like) for 17 slots! The last one was Madonna, and you know how much I liked that. I'd like to say I liked this album more...but it just felt like something you'd have heard in some depressing club in the 90s where everyone's doing drugs. I was sort of reminded of Fiona Apple or Tori Amos, which is a good thing, but it's not a style of music I'm very familiar with or drawn to.

So. Did I enjoy listening to the album? Will I want to re-visit it again or recommend it to others? Did it belong on the list, especially this far up? I think the answer is a very disappointed 'no' for me on all counts.
