CRITIC REVIEWS

100
NME

‘Let England Shake’ is a record that ventures deep into the heart of darkness of war itself and its resonance throughout England’s past, present and future.

100
Consequence of Sound

It’s an awe-inspiring, challenging album in all the best ways. PJ Harvey has created an album that will be at the top of everyone’s “Best of” list come December.

90
Drowned in Sound

Let England Shake is neither damning, patriotic, nor angry and its gristly lyrics do not dictate the mood.

90
musicOMH

Loose and sparse as it is, Let England Shake serves much the same function, lingering in the mind long after its engrossing runtime.

90
Beats Per Minute

It is able to deftly blend the vividness and conviction of a protest album with all of the yearning of what just has to be a genuine patriotic outcry.

88
Pitchfork

Even considering all of the horror on display, this is her most straightforward and easy to embrace album in a decade.
