Album

Is This Desire is the fourth studio album by English musician PJ Harvey, released on 28 September 1998 on Island Records. Recorded on and off in Somerset and London between April 1997 and April 1998, it was co-produced by Flood, Head and Harvey herself, and featured instrumental contributions from Rob Ellis, John Parish, Mick Harvey, Eric Drew Feldman, Joe Gore and Jeremy Hogg. It marked a move away from Harvey's earlier guitar-driven rock style into subtler, quieter, atmospheric soundscapes and mood.

Released September 28, 1998. Is This Desire Tracklist. Around 1996 through 1997, PJ Harvey was in a relationship with Nick Cave. Their breakup inspired Cave on his subsequent album The Boatmans Call. It also inspired Harvey on this album. However, the depression she felt following the breakup was so bad that it took more than a year to complete the album. The extremely bleak nature of My Beautiful Leah led her to realize that she needed help. I listened back to that song and I thought No This is enough No more of this I dont want to be like this. Because it was all so black and white, and life just isnt black and white. Recorded on and off in Dorset and London between April 1997 and April 1998, it was co-produced by Flood, Head and Harvey herself, and featured instrumental contributions from Rob Ellis, John Parish, Mick Harvey, Eric Drew Feldman, Joe Gore and Jeremy Hogg. It marked a move away from Harveys earlier guitar-driven rock style into subtler, quieter, atmospheric soundscapes and mood pieces based around keyboards, bass and electronics. View wiki.

Is This Desire Исполнитель: PJ Harvey. 1998 rock. Retreating from the limelight after the tour for To Bring You My Love, PJ Harvey returned to her small hometown of Yeovil and isolated herself from most pop trends, eventually writing the material that would come to comprise her fourth album, Is This Desire Released over three and a half years after To Bring You My Love, Is This Desire has all the hallmarks of a record written in isolation subtle, cerebral, insular, difficult to assimilate, it's the album where Polly Harvey enters the ranks of craftsmen, sacrificing confession for fiction. Is this Desire Joseph walked on and on. The sunset went down and down. Coldness cooled their desire and Dawn said, Lets build a fire. The sun dressed the trees in green and Joe said, I feel like a king, and Dawns neck and her feet were bare sweetness in her golden hair. She said, Im not scared. He turned to her and smiled secrets in his eyes and the sweetness of desire. Hour by hour, may we two stand when were dead, between these lands. The sun set behind his eyes and Joe said, Is this desire . Lyrics PJ Harvey - Is This Desire Joseph walked on and on the sunset went down and down coldness cooled their desire and Dawn said, lets build a fire the sun dressed them trees in green and Joe said, Dawn I feel like a king and Dawn's neck and her feet were bare, sweetness in her golden hair said I'm not scared turned to her and smiled secrets. in his eyes, sweetness of desire Is this desire, enough enough to lift us higher, to lift above our love by hour may we two stand when we're dead between these lands the sun sets, behind his eyes and joe said, Is this desire,. PJ Harvey Artwork, Musician, Producer, Written-By. Maria Mochnacz Design, Photography By. Rob Crane Design. 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.
