Is This Desire

CD (Item 537038) Island, 1998 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈
A real standout from Polly Jean Harvey – a set that somehow manages to have all the intensity of her previous records, but which hones things down to a mode that might well be called mellow at times – but which, to us, also seems to really give the music clarity, and maybe a more timeless vibe overall! The restraint is wonderful – and it's never commercial at all – as there seems to be even more of a focus on just the right balance between expression and songwriting, given added help in the studio by Flood. Titles include "No Girl So Sweet", "The River", "Catherine", "A Perfect Day Elise", "My Beautiful Leah", "The Wind", "Angelene", and "Electric Light".  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Barcode has a cutout hole, booklet has a gold promo stamp.)

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We only use the grade "Used CD" for non-new CDs. This all-encompassing grade was chosen it because we only buy and offer used CDs in the best possible condition.

When you purchase a used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use, but if there are significant details or defects we will describe the item's condition (just like we do with LPs), so look for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details before ordering.

All of our used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. After you receive a used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly. If it does not, you can request a return for a full refund.
