PJ Harvey: White Chalk
Buy! - (Island)
PJ Harvey’s 8th album is yet another radical turnaround from her previous release, this time moving from the raw, primitive rock of 2004’s Uh Huh Her to a stark and minimalist piano-based sound. White Chalk is a haunting, ethereal, at times unsettling record that seems underdeveloped at first, before burrowing deep under the skin. Harvey sings in her upper register in a fragile, mournful tone on one bleak song after another, sounding like some despondent ghostly apparition of dark secrets and lost love. 9/19/2007 - Don Yates
