I've just seen a used copy of this go for £45 on auction via eBay... The people bid it up to that amount... Must be getting scarce!

In my version of the vinyl (EU) there was a great photo picture of PJ Harvey inside. Anybody know something about this ?

This is me trying to find words to describe this indescribably amazing body of music... Pastoral yet panoramic music that makes me want about eight extra speakers to get lost in... Polly's strikingly beautiful, lyrically brutal traditionalist folk songs are both otherworldly and pastoral all at once. The vinyl itself-- fantastic! Some pops and clicks on first listen, before any cleaning (I couldn't wait) but the sound quality is perfection. A must-have for PJ Harvey fans.

Much quieter vinyl than the EU copy and same mastering 👍

I just bought the US pressing, it is pressed from the same ‘JONZ’ mastering, but the vinyl I found was without the unacceptable levels of noise that the GZ copy has. I recommend it if you find the EU copy too noisy.

Bought the vinyl version on a whim as I like this album so much. After reading some reviews and comments I didn't have very high expectations and when I got it home it was by far the dirtiest new record I have ever seen... covered in dust and sleeve shavings. I cleaned it before playing (vinyl revival) and too my surprise it sounded really good! A nice well mastered dynamic recording.....there were 4 really loud pops on the third track, which turned out to be a lump of glue!......cleaning again removed this and now it plays fine with hardly any surface noise. Packaging is good, card inner sleeve with photo of the band and song lyrics. I would recommend, but be prepared to clean! 5 stars for the music, 3 stars for the vinyl, though it goes to 4 stars after cleaning.

Fine recording and music, but bad pressing. Too many crackles. Record was more than averagely warped. Have it returned.

A truly astonishing album. Folk music across the ages has concerned itself with tales of people and their relationship to land and social pressures, and here exists far beyond politics and ideology - these being enemies of life and nature - though dealing with the painful realities of war. The melodies and singing sweep across a range of directly exporessed emotions, the lyrics include many voices and deft poetic touches that travel through time in many directions. Fine fine soul music.
