So…about a year-and-a-half ago I confessed to a 15-year crush on PJ Harvey. It seemed like a good time for an update. A check-up, if you will.
Yep. 16-and-a-half-years and still going.
I first became a fan with her first two discs, Dry and Rid of Me, totally diggin’ an eccentric beauty cranking the amps up to 11 with an art-punk attitude. I gotta admit, though, that I wasn’t anywhere near ready for To Bring You My Love when it came out and it wasn’t until years later that I really appreciated it for the excellent disc it is.
It was 2000’s Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea (an album I just LOVE), with its dreamy guitar sound that hooked me again and caused me to check out what I had missed over the past few years with PJ Harvey. It was then that I really understood what a true artist she is.
Nothing sexier than a strong, independent woman…who just happens to be beautiful. Enjoy Abysmally…
