Rolling Stone (6/13/96, pp.80-82) - 3 Stars (out of 5) - "...the highlight of GOOD GOD'S URGE is the searing title song, which is split into two moods that make alternate pleas for compassion and fury....Well put and idiosyncratic..."Spin (7/96, p.93) - 6 (out of 10) - "...There's little in the way of a 'we' here; all curiosity seems directed inward, to places no Lollapalooza laminate can get you. Much of GOOD GOD'S URGE was inspired by surfing trips to the Pacific Islands, and like any surf believer Farrell knows his only true kinship is with the waves..."Melody Maker (5/25/96, p.49) - "...these cocoon symphonies are strange and disturbing things....Perhaps the biggest mistake you could make with "Good God's Urge" is to try to understand it....Far better to abandon logic and let it wash over you..."RIP (7/96, p.12) - 5 (out of 5) - "...GOOD GOD's URGE is too far out there--ahead of it's time with a little borrowed from the mushroom-era of the '60s (War, not Sonny & Cher). Good God-dess!..."Mojo (Publisher) (6/96, p.120) - "...Tunes confidently blend weird improvisation with gorgeous melody, giving the album both depth and beauty..."New York Times (Publisher) (6/2/96, Sec.2, p.28) - "...an up-to-date counterpart to the music Syd Barrett made after leaving Pink Floyd. It is weird, candid and minimal. Moments of nonsense and endearing simplicity are mixed with revelations best interpreted by a team of psychoanalysts....an honest testament to flawed eccentricity."NME (Magazine) (5/25/96, p.50) - 8 (out of 10) - "...[Perry Farrell] has subjugated his ego to the ecosystem....GOOD GOD'S URGE is one long hymn to the greater forces...[that] evoke[s] colours and smells and feelings, a sensory feast....Perry Farrell is extraordinary..."0.6074842

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 (12/29/95-1/5/96, p.132) - Ranked #5 on EW's Top 10 Albums Of 1995.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: AQ (2/96, p.63) - Included in Q's 50 Best Albums of 1995 - "...it's sensual, intoxicating stuff, compelling--and expertly--performed..."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 better...an innovative leap forward.
