Most widely held works by Polly Jean Harvey
Let England shake by Polly Jean Harvey( Recording )

45 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This album is bound up with its music, its abiding atmosphere, and, in particular, its words. If Harvey's past work might seem to draw on direct emotional experience, this is rather different. Its songs center on both her home country and events further afield in which it has embroiled itself. The lyrics return, time and again, to the matter of war, the fate of the people who must do the fighting, and events separated by whole ages, from Afghanistan to Gallipoli
Stories from the city, stories from the sea by Polly Jean Harvey( Recording )

35 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personnel: P.J. Harvey (vocals, guitar, E-bow, piano, keyboards, bass, djembe, maracas); Thom York (vocals, keyboards); Mick Harvey (accordion, harmonium, organ, keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, background vocals); Rob Ellis (acoustic & electric pianos, harpsichord, keyboards, synthesizer, drums, bells, tambourine, background vocals). Producers: PJ Harvey, Rob Ellis, Mick Harvey. STORIES FROM THE CITY, STORIES FROM THE SEA was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. "This Is Love" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Vocal Performance. Polly Harvey in a mellow mood? Actually, sort of. While her trademark feminist angst is still largely in place here, by and large the music is less confrontational than in days of yore. Several of the tracks--"Good Fortune," "A Place Called Home," "One Line"--Verge on pop; in fact, they could pass for slightly more abstract Pretenders songs ("You Said Something" really does sound like Chrissie Hynde singing a mutant country tune). Given its title, it's not much of a surprise that "The Whores Hustle and the Hustlers Whore," manages to work up a convincingly atonal guitar racket, but otherwise the only song that really captures Harvey's trademark Captain Beefheart-like fury is (again, unsurprisingly, given its title) "Kamikaze." Other highlights include "Big Evil," which centers around a biting neo-psychedelic riff (sort of "Paperback Writer" gone dissonant), the hypnotically pretty "This Mess We're In," a sort of early Cure pastiche done as a duet with Radiohead's Thom Yorke, and the concluding "We Float," a piano-driven ode to making peace with your failures that Harvey sings with a sweetness that's almost inspirational

White chalk by Polly Jean Harvey( Recording )

27 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"White chalk" er den engelske sangeren og musikeren Polly Jean Harveys 8. studioalbum. Her samarbeider hun igjen med produsentene Flood og John Parish som også produserte flere av hennes utgivelser fra 90-tallet. Hun sier selv at hun denne gangen har prøvd å ikke følge noen musikalsk retning eller tråkke i oppgåtte spor, men har ønsket å prøve nye tekniker og tenke helt nytt i forhold til det musikalske. Hun har ønsket å skape ny musikk og nye lydbilder hun ikke har hørt før. Resultatet har blitt skjør og ren musikk med enkle melodilinjer som smyger seg sakte innpå, ofte med bare pianokomp og PJ Harveys spede falsett. "White chalk" formidler en ny sårbarhet hos PJ Harvey, som er enda mer hudløs og betagende enn hennes mørke og frustrerte CD "Uh huh" fra 2004
