Rid of Me is the second studio album by English singer-songwriter and musician PJ Harvey.

Today, we revisit PJ Harvey’s searing and monumental album from 1993. On September 24, 1993, Polly Jean Harvey made her Tonight Show debut with a peculiar solo performance of the title track from her second album, Rid of Me. Her black hair looked crunchy and wet, so shellacked with product it gleamed. Sloppy streaks of raspberry lip liner ringed her mouth, and thick brows framed eyes that radiated mischief. After the tense summer tour that had followed Rid of Me’s spring release, she had split with her bandmates, drummer Rob Ellis and bassist Steve Vaughan, in the trio they’d called PJ Harvey. So Polly appeared on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show accompanied only by her guitar. From a technical standpoint, it wasn’t a stellar performance. On the album and in concert, Ellis had taken over the haunting falsetto backing vocals: Lick my legs, I’m on fire/Lick my legs of desire.

PJ Harvey's second album, Rid of Me, finds the trio, and Harvey in particular, pushing themselves to extremes. This is partially due to producer Steve Albini, who gives the album a bloodless, abrasive edge with his exacting production; each dynamic is pushed to the limit, leaving absolutely no subtleties in the music

Here's another PJ Harvey tab, as compiled by Sean: Rid of Me (from the album Rid of Me). The chords are A, F and G, and it's really easy apart from the timing of the opening bit, which goes: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +. A. .You're not rid of me Yeah, you're not rid of me. Night and day I breathe Ho-hot Ai-air. F.

Dorset-native Polly Jean Harvey (better known by her androgynous stage name, PJ Harvey) has been making music since 1992. She started out as an angry girl who spun out words that a lot of singers at that time wouldn't have dared. Songs about sex were frequent contenders, and it was almost never in a nice or sweet way ("You leave me dry!" she yelps on one of her earliest numbers, "Dry"). However, her 1993 sophomore album, Rid of Me, is truly her finest work, and shows each integral side Harvey has to offer in one neatly wrapped 50-minute package. The first five songs are nearly perfect. Opener "Rid of Me," one of her trademark songs, is one of the best she's ever recorded.

The title track of PJ Harvey's sophomore album is a bitter slice of rage that shocked listeners with its raw energy. The singer alternates between quietly begging her unfaithful lover to stay and threatening to twist his head off. "When I wrote 'Rid of Me,' I shocked myself," Harvey explained to Spin magazine. I thought, 'Well, if I'm shocked, other people might be shocked. The sound of the words was powerful, and the rhythm felt clean and simple to roll off the tongue. I knew that this was the type of song I was trying to write.

Genre: Alternative Rock. July 21 2013, Original Score: . /10 February 18 2016, Revised Score: . /10. Super abrasive, demanding, temperamental album. I wish I could be PJ Harvey :{ "Lick my legs; I'm on fire" is one of those lyrics that will always be continuously stuck in my brain, atleast until it stops functioning.
