Top-20 countdown - no.12

P.J. Harvey - Let England Shake

Pre-recorded in a 19th century church at Dorset, England, the new album of British singer-songwriter PJ Harvey finds her return to her folk - blues roots. Her songs tell us stories from wars and battles, bloody events that she deftly weaves into her web with the proper musical thread to give us a complete album, mature, catalytic. An exceptional moment that you must not pass by indifferently, even if you have never heard even one of her songs before.
