  • Summary: This first solo disc in eight years for the former Birthday Party and Bad Seeds member mixes covers with two Harvey originals.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 4 out of 7
  2. Negative: 0 out of 7
  1. The collection of emotionally brutal songs found on One Man's Treasure is delivered with the vision of a cowboy looking at life through the bottom of a glass of whisky.
  2. This is an album of varied pleasures: it doesn't grab you by the scruff of the neck but it pulls insistently at your arm until you have to take notice.
  3. With this outing, Harvey establishes himself not only as a fine composer, but as a songwriter.
  4. It's not quite as engaging as Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, but in a pinch it will do.

    Harvey's voice is not worthy of heavyweight songwriting. Still, when the songs are lighter, he succeeds. [Oct 2005, p.117]

    Maybe all originals next time? [Sep 2005, p.89]
  7. Uncut

    A moody and restrained affair. [Oct 2005, p.108]
