Harvey's New Hooks, Persona

Jim Sullivan, The Boston Globe, 26 May 1995

POLLY JEAN HARVEY has become, of late, a very public face. Last month's cover of Spin, a recent Tower Pulse, the current issue of Request. A striking video of 'Down by the Water' plays on MTV. A riveting performance of that song was on The Tonight Show. Her third full-length album, To Bring You My Love, is already being talked about as one of 1995's best.
