PJ Harvey

PJ Harvey's win brought her critical
and commercial success

Winner: PJ Harvey - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
Sounds like: Harvey claiming her place as Britain's first lady of rock
Key track: Good Fortune - an uncharacteristically conventional love song

Subsequent career: Harvey has only released one album since Stories from the City, 2004's self-produced Uh-Huh Her. It won critical acclaim, but sold fewer copies than its predecessor.
Mercury barometer: High - A unique album by a vital force in British rock.

Losers: Radiohead - Kid A, Goldfrapp - Felt Mountain
