PJ Harvey and Thom Yorke - "This Mess We're In"

I haven't listened to Stories From the City, Stories From the Sea in a while, so I popped it in the other day. Still fantastic, but "This Mess We're In" really shocked me. I had forgotten just how terrific and romantic and evocative that song is -- and, believe me, I played it plenty back in 2000, so I was sufficiently aware of its greatness. But hearing it again after so long ... well, it was like being bowled over again for the first time.
