PJ Harvey & John Parish: A Woman A Man Walked By
Buy! - (Island)
13 years after their first co-billed collaborative album, the mercurial British singer and the veteran British producer are back with their second, and it’s a much more diverse and freewheeling affair. As with their first collaboration, Harvey adds lyrics to music from Parish, and while Parish supplies a diverse range of evocative, avant-roots backdrops, Harvey brings most of the fireworks by throwing herself with gusto into a head-turning variety of different character roles with vocals ranging from a fragile falsetto to animalistic grunts, croaks, whoops and howls. 3/31/2009 - Don Yates
