I can't believe this hasn't been done. NOT CRAP, no waffle factor. I like all of her albums (some more than others obviously), and she is a great performer. Her show last year at the Riviera was amazing.

Sexiest woman in rock, if not in the world.

Excellent guitar player.

Damn good songwriter.

Fearless singer.

What's not to like?

rid of me is such a great album, one of my favorites,...

but i was sad when i bought her other stuff....all fairly mediocre.

i bought a magazine about a month or two ago that had her on the cover and then had some interview with her, and then fasion pictures that she models in... shes pretty darn cool.

not crap

I had a real hard time getting into her early on (circa Rid of Me), but seems as though time has opened my ears to her work. I really like Rid of Me, To Bring You My Love, and the new record. She was supposed to open for Sonic Youth in Kansas City but she was, I guess, stopped at the Canadian border. I guess what I mean to say is NOT CRAP.

Geez, does it get much more NOT CRAP?

Any human being who, in his/her lifetime, writes a song as good as "Joe", is a very special motherfucker.

And she wrote more than just "Joe".

Product of the landed classes. Supports fox hunting. What use would I have with her art?

Hemmingway loved Bullfighting and big-game huntering, does that make his books crap?

Even Stories from the... was a million times better than most of the other stuff at the time.

That year's Mercury Prize, Gorillaz for fuck's sake and this was supposed to be a "cutting edge" award.

* Basement Jaxx – Rooty
* Elbow – Asleep in the Back
* Goldfrapp – Felt Mountain
* Gorillaz – Gorillaz (nomination withdrawn at the request of the band)
* Ed Hardcourt – Here Be Monsters
* PJ Harvey – Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea
* Tom McRae – Tom McRae
* Radiohead – Amnesiac
* Susheela Raman – Salt Rain
* Super Furry Animals – Rings Around the World
* Turin Brakes – The Optimist LP
* Zero 7 – Simple Things

Postby Rimbaud III on Wed Jan 04, 2006 5:49 am

NOT CRAP, but high WF because her lyrics are sometimes beyond terrible:

I'd jump for you into the fire
I'd jump for you into the flame
Tried to go forward with my life
I just feel shame, shame, shame
Shame, shame, shame
Shame is the shadow of love


And:

Who the fuck do you think you are
Get out of my hair
who the fuck do you think you are
Comin' round here
who the fuck who the fuck
who the fuck do you think you are


I know that taking lyrics out of the context they're designed to be appreciated in isn't fair, but COME ON! This kind of clichéd angst is a bit juvenile, no?

[THE ANSWER IS YES]
