  • Summary: On her seventh album, a sparser affair than her 2000 effort 'Stories From The City?,' PJ Harvey produced, mixed, and played all of the instruments herself (aside from drums, handled by Robert Ellis), with some additional production from Head.

  1. It's a near-perfect piece of art, a level of accomplishment Harvey achieves with amazing consistency.
  2. ''Uh Huh Her'' reasserts that Harvey, now the grande dame of this genre, remains unrivaled.
  3. Rather than coming across as an unfriendly piece of self-indulgence--which may or may not have been the intention--her latest CD is quietly captivating.
  4. PJ Harvey can still pack a resonant, emotional wallop, even when the recording is devoid of frills.
  5. The single-mindedness with which she approaches these songs is ultimately responsible for much of the album's distinctive flavor. [#7]
  6. Harvey doesn't brandish many new moves here.
  7. Uh Huh Herb is a disappointment, the tepid, not-quite-there record that many artists seem to make after hitting a career peak.

    this is amazing, so pure, so untouched, so honest. it is hard to describe.it is like even pj only sings and or play only one instrument, it this is amazing, so pure, so untouched, so honest. it is hard to describe.it is like even pj only sings and or play only one instrument, it can be enough. she again showes that, the number of instruments are not important but whether music is clever, emotional, honest. in desperate kingdom of love she just reach perfection in vocal style. she is so confident and relaxed as a musician and funny also ! it is different from everything you hear, pure original.

    This album, on the depressed edge, is poignant, conveys a feeling of hunger and want and, sometimes pain. It's really beautiful and This album, on the depressed edge, is poignant, conveys a feeling of hunger and want and, sometimes pain. It's really beautiful and completely connects with me. I burned my own version and left out "Shame," "Who the..." "No Child of Mine" and "Cat on the Wall" It's still long enough and grabs me completely Expand

    A mediocre album from peej. She has tried to go back to the style of the first two albums but its just not convincing this time. Nothing like A mediocre album from peej. She has tried to go back to the style of the first two albums but its just not convincing this time. Nothing like as good as her best (Dry, rid ofme, to bring you my love, stories...) but probably better than the similarly half-baked "Is this Desire?" Expand
