"On what may be her best album, Polly Harvey offers a portrait of her homeland as a country built on bloodshed and battle, not so much a police state as a nation in thrall to military endeavour, however impotent and wasteful that has become. A place paralysed by fascination with past victories, hidebound by the ghosts of an imperial past." read the independent's review
spot-on poetry, beautiful compositions (am i hearing some feelies in "the glorious land"?). this is not your average album.
