My Beautiful Leah


PJ Harvey is an eccentric artist. Is that an understatement? She is. No, I don’t like everything she does. In fact, more often than not, I don’t. Sometimes she’s brilliant, sometimes she’s just loud. But when she’s brilliant, she’s really brilliant. And weird, and sexy, and disturbing, and intense. She’s definitely one of the few who made the 90’s popscape a tiny bit more bearable. Too bad I wasn’t quite the right age to fully appreciate her at the time. Now I can see that she was among the first to showcase how being lewd, raw and demented could be a serious artistic statement for a ladyperson.
