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