Dance Hall at Louse Point

EW's GRADE
A

Details Lead Performances: John Parish and P.J. Harvey; Genre: Rock

Guitarist John Parish provides the music and singer Polly Jean Harvey the lyrics for this torridly compelling batch of songs. The strikingly simpatico pair ventures even further into the stark emotional terrain of Harvey's last album, To Bring You My Love (which Parish coproduced). By turns mournful and dissonant, stately and manic, these collaborations exude an otherworldly drama, like blues beamed in from another dimension. Dance Hall at Louse Point is ''deep'' music in every sense; total immersion is recommended. A
