    Rolling Stone (3/9/95, pp.63-64) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Harvey envisions a teeming underworld where she is victim, aggressor and accomplice, song by song....all these are put in the service of a primal vision on TO BRING YOU MY LOVE: Harvey's bitter struggles with her demons and her wicked, wanton sympathy for the devil..."

    Spin (4/95, p.195) - 10 - Classic - "...She knows that rock'n'roll... stimulates desire, and if you're hungry enough, it can...break you apart....Harvey uses free the man in her, and the madwoman, the goddess and the ghost. While most of her peers graze pop culture's surfaces for inspiration, Harvey plunges under. She's bent on touching rock's magical core..."

    Entertainment Weekly (3/10/95, p.68) - "...Her lyrics convey desire and love, while her barbed-wire voice betrays uncertainty about giving over that much of herself....TO BRING YOU MY LOVE is the most welcome of rarities: a move toward maturity without any loss of Harvey's visceral power..." - Rating: A

    Alternative Press (5/95, pp.74-75) - "...TO BRING YOU MY LOVE could be described as menstrual, in the primeval, ritualistic, sense of the word, the Earth Mother unleashing powers which man would rather lock up for fear of the dark....In another time, they'd call it the blues. But really, it's blacker than that..."
    Melody Maker (12/23-30/95, pp.66-67) - Ranked #9 on Melody Maker's list of 1995's `Albums Of The Year' - "...Rapacious, bluesy, stylistically drawing on Zeppelin and Cave..."
    Musician (5/95, pp.85-86) - "...No matter how good her earlier records convinced you Polly Harvey was, she's lots innovative leap forward. She's written primal blues and country-based songs about love, death and longing and sung them passionately with no irony or distance..."

    Mojo (Publisher) (p.62) - Ranked #40 in Mojo's "100 Modern Classics" -- "[A]n unprecedented slice of coal-black, freakily obsessional avant-roots-rock."
    New York Times (Publisher) (1/6/96, p.C16) - Included on Jon Pareles' and Neil Strauss' list of the Top 10 Albums of `95 - "In Polly Jean Harvey's songs, love becomes immolation and salvation, holy quest and desperate obsession..."
