But unless you totally hate it and don't want to hear any more from her, I'd suggest Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea.
Don't fear, I really enjoyed this album. Definitely deserving of some repeat spins.

I also listened to this album a few times without hearing any of her previous albums before and I really liked it. She's coming to Rock Werchter and now I'm looking forward to seeing her live there.

For those newer fans, I'd like to share that when I saw her for the first time, in 2001, she opened for Shuttlecock to a crowd that wasn't exactly open-minded.

And in one of the ballsiest moves I've seen, she began her set with a B-SIDE from her recent album. It also happens to be a song as good as anything on the album itself, but it was like, I'm not trying to impress any of you fuckers--take it or leave it.

I fell instantly in love. And she was EASILY the best artist I've ever seen open for SC.

The song in question:

YouTube - PJ Harvey - This Wicked Tongue

Probably an amazonian goddess though. She does not shave her man hole.

What albums should I move on to now that I've bathed in the holy waters of this goddess' latest affair?

 
That sentence made me feel like a tool.

I enjoyed PJ opening for U2 back in 2001, but to be honest I didn't think that her music really suited the arena setting. It's IMO much better in small venues.

I also first saw PJ opening for U2. I had already been a fan for a few years at that point tho. She opened with 'Rid of Me' solo, just her and her guitar. It was spellbinding, even though a minute into it some dimwitted girl behind me said "Omigod, she sounds like Courtney Love!" UGH. Fucking U2 fans. Still, even in a half empty and mostly apathetic arena, PJ was absolutely magnetic.

She was definitely better when I saw her at a smaller venue (she played a very aggressive set right after 9/11), but she didn't shy away from the arena when she opened for Shuttlecock, either. Plus she was touring her biggest-sounding album at the time so that certainly helped.

Speaking of which, how amazing is this performance (from 2001 Big Day Out)
