  2. No P.J. Harvey Let England Shake?

    Chuck, chuck, chuck….

    The rest of your list however is very similiar to mine. I’m gonna put mine together soon.

    • Yeah, I’ve listened to that one a few times, but haven’t really spent some time with it. I saw it on Nate’s top 10, so I’m definitely going to spend some more time with it. She’ll never do anything better than Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea.
