It marked a departure from Harvey’s previous songwriting, being more raw and aggressive than it’s predecessor.

"In the wake of her 1992 debut, Dry, England’s Polly Harvey could easily have edged toward the mainstream. Instead, in cahoots with producer Steve Albini, her band created a tempestuous follow-up that proved she was a fantastically singular talent. Standout track: “Rid of Me”"
