I was looking for a very large rez version of this cover and kept finding versions where heavy sharpening was applied to her face, making it look like she has lizard skin. Remembering from oh so long ago that the images were a bit blurry, I thought I would pop over here to see, thinking perhaps Paolo Roversi shot the cover—his exquisite work is known for that out-of-focus effect—but it turns out "Images (All) - PJ Harvey"
Pleasantly surprised!! PJ is ALL TALENT!

I find the pressing flaw with this album is actually part of its charm. I know that sounds like a massive concession because I would never want an album with a pressing flaw but it's such a sonically shifting album from track to track there is something exciting about resetting the skate on the turntable and wondering if the needle will hit the groove in a certain way which will allow it to play through. Sometimes it does and sometimes it does not. I KNOW it sounds corny but I feel I have a special relationship with this album in particular, because of the flaw. It is demanding, like the album itself. It commands your attention and you have to have a relationship with it in order to "get" through it. You can't just play it passively and I love it for that, however unintentional. Stupid maybe, but the flaw doesn't stop me enjoying it. I would not buy a repress for anything because of this.

Bought it the week of release, returned to shop for replacement twice and all three copies had the same issue. Bought another copy recently and was told it played fine however it didn't and had a refund. So yes, it was a pressing fault. Therefore Island records need to re-press this please!! If your copy plays ok , keep it and treasure it, it's worth a fortune!!

Yeah, I agree, same problem: needle sticks in the middle of "no girl so sweet" and sometimes in the middle of "the river".

There is three years between Polly Jean Harveys third album To Bring You My Love and her new album Is This Desire?. The tour that followed her previous cd demolished her and forced her to take a while. And so to hear the reflection period has its well done, because it Is This Desire? Harvey as usual and sounds better. The of her previous plates known ingredients are all present: its flexible, occasionally distorted voice and by her nomination and ' heavy ' texts often ominous songs. Retained tension is felt by the less this time extra on guitars and more on sampled (dance) beats, synthesizer sounds and heavy (bass) guitar riffs-based packages. Highlights on this beauty plate are the understated Angelene, The Wind (with Marius de Vries), A Perfect Day Elise and The River.

Bought my copy on the week of release, and it played fine throughout for years before it began to stick in the middle of "no girl so sweet". Probably a combination of faulty pressing and violent groove modulation at that point which causes the needle to "jump". I've found that cheaper spherical stylii tracking a bit heavier can help overcome this issue, in addition to easing off the anti-skating on the tonearm.

haven't played this album in a long time, and lo and behold, there's the stylus sticking near the middle of "no girl so sweet". oh well.
