Allmusic & Pitchfork seemed to think it was ok. I havent really heard any songs from it, or any real hype about it in all honesty. That kinda makes me wonder.

I'm sure it's good though, it is PJ Harvey after all!

That's not surprising - PJ Harvey while influential and very respected, is not a lucrative artist, and therefore her record label will not spend thousands on a PR campaign when they won't recoup the costs. It's unfortunate, but that's how the game is played.

I'll buy the new record b/c PJ is phenomenal

The pitchfork review compared it to Radiohead. That means I have to have it asap.

She sounded pretty good on Jools Holland last friday...I think she played 1 or 2 new songs.

I love the new album, . It's more stripped and minimalistic than the poppier Stories from the City... Some songs are really raw and abrasive and guaranteed to scare away everyone who loved lush melodies of Stories, which was probably what PJ intended, Vocally she's never been better, too. I think it's great that her label allows her to do whatever she wants.

So she's back to sounding like crap on purpose. Wonderful. I'll never understand the indie mind.

I loved her last album- SFTC,SFTS and from what I have heard of the new stuff, it is a lot 'darker', for lack of a better word, but it is still PJ and great

Absolutely. I've only heard it once (don't have my own copy yet - listening to a friends) but I loved it.

I'm going to see her at her only concert in Australia. I bought the ticket because she has been so highly appreciated by quite a few people at this site. I'm looking forward to seeing her:hyper. Franz Ferdinand are playing that night too I won't be able to buy her album, but luckily the radio station I listen to like her. They are promoting the concert here , so we'll hear lots about her and her music as it draws closer
I have only heard "The Letter"...some great lyrics.
I heard another female artist who totally caught my ear because of her lyrics yesterday. Also the guitar sound they were using and I do believe I heard a banjo in the background occassionally. The announcer rabbitted on so much about Canada only producing Alanis Morrisette clones he never said what the song was. I'd like to hear more of her. I think her name was Serena Ryder?

Is there someplace you can hear a stream of it online? I'm not a huge fan of hers by any stretch of the imagination so I'd like an audition of sorts.
