"...Constantly brilliant. White Chalk is an amazing album, racked with beauty, stricken with fragility and haunted with something otherworldly..." (

"...It's been widely reported by now that White Chalk is an album dominated by piano. It's true. I mean, there's even a song called "The Piano", in case you didn't get the hint. There is no distorted, bluesy guitar anywhere in sight, meaning that any fans arriving at this album hoping for something similar to Rid of Me, or even Stories From The City, Stories From The Sea, will be sorely disappointed. Perhaps more importantly, the anger characteristic of Harvey's best work has been replaced here by a mood that is consistently resigned and regretful ('Can you forgive me?' and 'Please don't reproach me for how empty my life has become' in "Broken Harp", 'Oh God, I miss you' in "The Piano"), but never depressed. That, more than anything, makes this album work - eleven tracks of relentless piano-soundtracked misery would have been too much to bear. Instead, Harvey leaves gaps for the listener to fill, never impressing her mood upon proceedings. It's a move that demonstrates both Harvey's talent and experience, and has earned enthuasiastic comparisons to Nico" (Read More:
