''Rid of Me'' is the second studio album by British musician PJ Harvey. It was released in May 1993, approximately 1 year after the release of her critically acclaimed debut album ''Dry''. It marked a departure from Harvey’s previous songwriting, being more raw and aggressive than it’s predecessor.

The songs on ''Rid of Me'' were performed by Harvey’s eponymous trio, consisting of Harvey on guitar and vocals, Rob Ellis on drums and background vocals, and Steve Vaughan on bass. It was the last album they recorded as a group before the trio disbanded in late 1993. Most of the songs on the album were recorded by Steve Albini. ''Rid of Me'' was generally well-received by critics and fans. In 2003, the album was ranked number 405 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. - Wikipedia
