PJ Harvey: Uh Huh Her
Everett True, Plan B, June 2004
POLLY HARVEY. This is her seventh album. It's better than her sixth, 2001 's set of NYC travel diaries, Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea — which, rather ridiculously, won the Dorset songstress the Mercury Music Prize (perhaps because it had taken the organisers eight years to come to terms with the sophisticated, minimal brilliance of her second album, 1993's Steve Albini-produced Rid Of Me).
Total word count of piece: 308
