There is crackly surface noise over much of the LP, though thankfully no scratches. The CD is my go-to option for this album. Reply Notify me Helpful. Mine is a 45 RPM version, absolutely terrible.

White Chalk was released in September 2007 and marked a radical departure from her usual alternative rock style, consisting mainly of piano ballads. Queen of the Night: .

White chalk south against time White chalk cutting down the sea at Lyme I walk the valleys by the Cerne On a path cut fifteen hundred years ago. And I know these chalk hills will rot my bones. Dorset’s cliffs meet at the sea Where I walked, our unborn child in me White chalk, gorse-scattered land Scratch my palms – there’s blood on my hands. PJ Harvey was born and raised in Dorset, a county in South West England. The area is known for its chalk hills, referenced throughout this song. White Chalk" Track Info.

Lyrics to "White Chalk" song by PJ Harvey: White chalk hills are all I've known White chalk hills will rot my bones White chalk sticking to . .White chalk sat against time White chalk cutting down the sea line I know Mary's by the surf On a path cut 1500 years ago. Dorset's cliffs meet at the sea Where I walked (Our unborn child in me) White chalk (Poor scattered land). Scratch my palms There's blood on my hands. Writer(s): POLLY JEAN HARVEY. album: "White Chalk" (2007).

The 12-track album contains 10 original pieces of instrumental music as well as two new songs written by Harvey and sung by Gillian Anderson and Lily James. Harvey’s score for All About Eve, is performed by herself, James Johnston and Kenrick Rowe, and uses Franz Liszt’s ‘Liebesträume’ (a musical element of Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s original 1950s classic film) as a musical touchstone, exploring the more somber and deeply psychological aspects of the story. The album is produced by PJ Harvey, with additional production and mixing from Adam ‘Cecil’ Bartlett

White Chalk PJ Harvey. PJ Harvey’s career has been marked by artistic risks, but on her seventh album she leapt into the unknown, teaching herself the piano while using it to compose arresting elegies. The sparse instrumentals on the ghostly title track and the startling When Under Ether float around her hushed, upper-register mourning; the moaned refrain Oh God, I miss you adds a claustrophobic element to the seething rhythms of The Piano.

the devil dear darkness grow grow grow when under ether white chalk broken harp silence to talk to you the piano before departure the mountain. More from Ron Anderson.

White Chalk is Harvey's darkest album yet - which, considering that she's sung about dismembering a lover and drowning her daughter, is saying something. It's also one of her most beautiful albums, inspired by the fragility and timelessness of chalk lines and her relative newness to the piano, which dominates White Chalk; it gives "Before Departure" funereal heft and "Grow Grow Grow" a witchy sparkle befitting its incantations. White Chalk took five months to record with Harvey's longtime collaborators Flood, John Parish, and Eric Drew Feldman, but these somber, cloistered songs sound like they could be performed in a parlor, or channeled via Ouija board. There is hardly any guitar (and certainly nothing as newfangled as electric guitar) besides the acoustic strumming on the beautifully chilly title track, which could pass for an especially gloomy traditional British folk song.

I have the 45 RPM version and the pressing is really good. Is there really a 33 RPM version at all?
Molace
Like others, mine is a terrible pressing. The new record was covered in fingerprints, and there were two pronunced scuff marks on side 2. I have cleaned it twice and it still looks shit. There is crackly surface noise over much of the LP, though thankfully no scratches. The CD is my go-to option for this album. I will be much more cautious about buying anything pressed by GZ in future.
Brightcaster
Mine is a 45 RPM version, absolutely terrible. Pops and clicks throughout both sides. Unlistenable.
KiddenDan
I bought this LP in 2007 (Us pressing) and it sound great, no crackles no pops, very good pressing, 33 1/3 rpm, and very beautiful music on my Linn LP 12 ...
ZloyGenii
My copy sounds relly nice. Quiet with low background noice. Guess I was lucky.

I have the 45rpm pressing and it plays absolutely fine with no background noises or crackles. It may be down to the cartridge but even on a fairly entry level system it was quiet. Record cleaning might help too. The recording itself is excellent with clear separatiion between instruments and vocals which leads me to think that this is not an mp3 pressing. As for the music, well it is PJ Harvey. You will either love or hate the sparseness and desolate soundscape. I love it.
godlike
One of the worse pressings I heard of any record ever. LOUD BACKGROUND NOISE. Garbage.
Cargahibe
Mine sounds great - no crackles - 45rpm too. genius album
Kea
There is considerable surface noise in this pressing, but I still love putting it on. Fabulous album.
Light out of Fildon
Just got this one, oh man so much static and pops. Should have been much better quality, sending it back.
Haralem
My version Plays at 45rpm,had me confused me for a while!!!
Nuadabandis
A terrible record! Her howling sounds so confused and uninspired. Changing instruments and style does not make it sound original. Puh! So disappointing! Even for someone who is really appreciating going new ways in music.
Goldendragon
Well said Marks.....this is an incredibly heart felt piece of work.not that pj doesn't put her heart into everything she does,but I would elevate this album from heart felt to heartbreaking.one does wonder what dark recesses this material came from.She is a true source of immense pride for British music,and as a Scotsman I have to concede that her sound and style is patently English,but nonetheless I still feel pride on her behalf.we're in the uk people,and long may it continue. Xxx
SoSok
Pressing is poor? crackles ? pops? I have bought 2 of this already and returned ..sellers are saying, that perhaps the whole pressing is poor quality ?
Loni
yep, went through 6 new copies recently and they all sounded like garbage
Mullador
yes Jarsu, it is. company called gzvinyl do this everytime. aviod
Shomeshet
Has anybody actually come across a version of this on white vinyl? I am doubtful that one exists, because I've never seen it or heard anyone discuss it...
Der Bat
I just got it for Xmas. This one exists, I can confirm. 45RPM tho.
Winenama
horrible pressing.. I have two of this issue and background noise IS MAD ! AVOID
Goldfury
I'm with you on that one. I returned a copy and traded in for another and it had the same problem. I keep the record in an anti-static sleeve now but I fear the damage has already been done. Such a shame as it's a great record, the silence/quieter parts are integral to the sound of the record. But all you get is ticks and clicks. Boo-urns.
Ohatollia
it's pressed by gzvinyl and they are worst vinyl pressing company i've ever see. worst inlay paper produces lot of paper dust, static electric to kill your vinyl. they do it everytime.
Gerceytone
For the most part, I agree. I have all of PJ Harvey's albums on vinyl, with the exception of Dry and Rid Of Me, none of them are anything special. It seems as though none of her music was mastered with vinyl in mind.
MarF
One of PJ Harvey's best albums--like you've never heard her before. It's haunting, intimate, ethereal, and extremely captivating. I also highly recommend getting the 45rpm version, if you can find it, as the sound quality is far superior.
Malakelv
Something is broken, very broken in Polly Harvey's life. This new album is saturated with loss, palpable, bruising loss. From the charm of the opening song "The Devil" there is no question that something terrible, perhaps even mortal, has transpired in this artist's world. She had been the flippant rock deconstructionist on her last work "Uh Huh Her" but now she is a mutely observant survivor. Barely speaking. Barely still there at all.She sounds decimated, crushed, tormented... damaged. I want to curl up in a little ball and hear myself breathe just be sure I'm still alive when "White Chalk" has finished. People generally keep pain like this to themselves but not our little English firecracker."Grow Grow Grow", the third track is a demented study on human life. The piano features more strongly on this tune then it does for the rest of this "piano-driven" release. Swirling progressions meekly stand as guardians against anything getting into the meat of the song. This should have been the lead single. P J is quite possibly losing her sanity as we listen and my my my does it sound amazing. Of course, the obligatory nod towards more traditional structure "When under Ether" follows soon after and I have to give Flood his due. His production abilities and immense studio arsenal actually serve to tame and loosen this title instead of emasculating the delicate, nuanced playing Polly exhibits."Silence" could be in her top five, the tension is explosive. The words cauterize your soul. If it is indeed to be the end of all things, what could better represent impending doom than an ironic meditation on the word silence and all of its possible meanings.I should stress to you that I would love for this album to be longer. It's not even forty minutes. The best way to describe this work only would make sense if you'd collected her singles from the "Is This Desire?" album. The non-album tracks pointed quite frankly in this direction and I'm stunned she chose to continue in this fashion. Such attention to detail is rare in the musical world, and for an artist such as this one - who's focus is quite easily diverted - to have wrangled even this much of such a place onto an album I cannot commend enough. Now how about a finished version of "The Northwood"?
