pj harvey, queen of the dark

PJ HarveyPJ Harvey White Chalk

When I declaim here about the state of rock music I need to remind myself that there are many diamonds in the rough and of course one of the brightest (and darkest) is Polly Jean Harvey. I haven't had chance to hear the whole album 'White Chalk' yet but the UK's Observer is one of many places it is getting rave reviews: “It's bleak, lacks guitars and is sung in an odd voice. So what makes this piano-driven set an unlikely triumph, asks Paul Mardles”. Never one to follow others PJ Harvey marches to the beat of her own drum. You can buy the CD new from Amazon for only $9.99

    Hey thanks for the link to the Amazon MP3 I couldn’t find it earlier. It seems because of the issues between Universal Records and iTunes it won’t be in iTunes.

    This CD is going to rock, no doubt, as we’ve been waiting for this. How can the Goddess go wrong? Never, in my lil’ black book. yow!
