The next album was "Is This Desire" in 1998. A bit more artsy, it got mixed reviews. Though, Harvey says it's herpersonal favorite. It was a bit more focused on electronics and keyboards then guitars like her previous albums. In 2000, shereleased "Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea." This album has probably been her more accesible album so far. It wonbut critical and commercial success, and won the Mecury Music Prize in 2001. 2004 saw the release of "Uh Huh Her." The albumsounded a lot like her earlier work. And though it was acknowledged that it wasn't her best effort, it still received plenty of goodreviews from the critics. « hide
