    For an album almost four years in the making, it's frustratingly half-finished, like a series of preliminary sketches. [#27, p.142]
  2. Her varied approach yields varied results: Sometimes the disc sounds like a mature summing up of previous work; at other times, it sounds like a closet-cleaning.
  3. Both pared down and unengaging at the same time, this appears to be a dead end.
  4. While nowhere near as unlistenable as Is This Desire?, Uh Huh Her is one of Harvey's bleaker efforts.
  5. Uh Huh Herb is a disappointment, the tepid, not-quite-there record that many artists seem to make after hitting a career peak.

The definition of indie rock. Lyrically, there are some lows that are made up by Harvey's raw intellectual voice and scratchy guitars and keyboards. Albums highlights: "Life and Times of Mr. Badmouth", "The Letter", "Cat on the Wall", "The Slow Drug", "No Child of Mine", "The Desperate Kingdom of Love", and "The Darker Days of Me & Him." Phenomenal record. Full Review »

    A couple of songs kick ass, but it's not my fave. I like the way it was produced - it kind of reminds me of U2's Discoteque. Most A couple of songs kick ass, but it's not my fave. I like the way it was produced - it kind of reminds me of U2's Discoteque. Most people wouldn't consider that a compliment, I know. But hell, you can't argue taste. PJ is, and always will be, at the top of my "10 Women, Who If I Have The Chance, I Have Prior Permission From My Girlfriend To Have Any Manner Of Sexual Intercourse With And Not Get In Any Trouble At All" list. This album has plenty of good moments to reccommend it. My biggest complaint is how long it took to make. She needs to hurry the hell up with the next one, dammit! Full Review »

    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.
