The String Quartet Tribute to PJ Harvey

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Johnny Loftus
PJ Harvey's music translates pretty well to violin, viola, and cello on this, her very own entry in Vitamin's long-running String Quartet Tribute series. Opener "50 Foot Queenie" gets the tautness of the original right, while a slithering "Down by the Water" benefits from subtle percussion touches. The violin does an uncanny impersonation of Harvey's wailing vocal on "C'Mon Billy" and "O Stella," and "To Bring You My Love" and "Wind" are tense and dramatic. It's one of the series' stronger entries, since it ably blends tribute with interpretation. Definitely of interest to PJ Harvey devotees.
