I've critically listened to all the cuts and there are only six would I say I would want to re-visit. At this juncture I'm not ready to 'jump on the Harvey bus' and add more of her repertoire to my collection. I decided to add Rid Of Me to my collection after owning and listening to repeated plays of her Stories from the City/Sea album that I have and continue to enjoy hearing every few months. How many of those six on 'Rid of Me' will sound fresh and interesting after a year or two? Maybe two, three or four? Unfortunately not enough to make this CD a keeper. Still, PJ is an interesting talent and I will be sure to sample other works by her, although I think I'll do some song sampling on the net before I order anything else. PJ has become 'my female David Byrne'.

Never Rid Of PJ
James V. Shrode | Philly | 09/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"PJ Harvey's most compelling and classic album ever. Every song is a work of art including the obsessive "Rid Of Me", the male dominance of "50 Foot Queenie" and "Man Size" to the comeuppance of "Dry." My only frustration is with Steve Albini's production style which always seems the same with his quiet then loud approach. Sometimes it feels like he is squelching some of the power that the songs contain. Still, PJ always manages to never let you down with her rawness."
You're Not Rid Of Me....

"Rid Of Me 5/5, I heard a live version first. It was compelling, at first I was dissapointed with this, but after listening to it, I was very happy with it 'Lick My Legs, I'm On Fire, Lick My Legs, I'm Desire."

Missed 5+/5 This song is really good, nice mid-tempo song, different, but I love it.

Legs 5+/5 This song is frigging awesome. I really love as much as Missed.

Rub 'Till It Bleeds 5+/5 This is a really good song, sounds kind of dirty and mean (in a good way).

Hook 4.5/5 This song is nice, not quite up to par with the first four, but still a good song.

Man-Size Sextet 2/5 Ehhh...just doesn't do it for me.

Highway '61 Revisited 4.5/5 Nice song, like the music and words (note: Cover song, orginiated from Bob Dylan).

50ft Queenie 5/5 Fast-Paced Rocking Song!!! Love it (I believe it was also the first single).

Yuri-G 5/5 Another Fast Paced Rocker.

Man-Size 4/5 Now this is a much better version of the song. Screeching vilons in the other one just don't work.

Dry 5+/5 Possibly my favorite on this CD. Its a freaking awesome song with the lyric 'You leave me dry'.

Me-Jane 5/5 Yet another fast paced rocker...

Snake 5/5 It is a song that I assume is based from the bible (about Adam and Eve), short punky, in-your-face song.

Ecstacy 4/5 Nice song, a pretty good closer to a freaking awesome album.

This was my first PJ Harvey album, it is simply brilliant. Just a great heavy rocking album. When Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea is in the mail, I'll be very excited. Then I'm buying Dry next!!!
