Favorite Albums: "Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea" (2000, Island)

This was another introductory album of sorts. I had heard PJ Harvey before, but had not heard of her. NCSU's radio station used to play Down by the Water, but it was not until I saw the video for This is Love that I knew who she was. I ran out and immediately bought the CD.

It is a great moody album. It has this brooding overtone, even in joyful songs like Good Fortune. Harvey's music has a hard edge, and the album does not feel over-produced.

I am really liking "White Chalk" and "A Girl Walked By" but don't get too much time to listen to music these days.
