4.0 out of 5 stars Typically dark 4 Jan 2005
Format:Audio CD
A lovely album brimming with delicious despair. My wife finds herself humming along to a track and the next one is about lost hope and she starts whingeing about it being 'unhappy music'. Not as strong as I See a Darkness, but I love all of Mr Oldham's music.

4.0 out of 5 stars joya = a joy 22 Nov 2006
Format:Audio CD
I like Will's early albums more than his recent output. This is not out of some "i-liked-him-before-the-Cash-cover" airs and graces - I think these albums are more intriging and have an incredible charm. It is the range of emotions in just one song, the allusive lyrics and also the interesting photogprahs and packaging. I remember being quite captivated by the picture on the back of Oldham reclining in a sumptuous looking house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy..ah! 17 Nov 1999
By Joachim Lyssens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think the songs on this album sound a little stronger than on other albums. If this is a good thing or not, I can't say. All I can say is that the resulting CD is one of my favourite Palace-linked records. I like this one better than Arise Therefore (with its drum programming) and almost as much as Viva Last Blues or I see a darkness! It definitely takes a while to get into this one, but once you've accomplished that, you're on for a lifetime of joy...ah!

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly inspired 2 Sep 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Joya" and "I See A Darkness" are utter masterpieces. If you like one then buy the other immediately. The rest of the Oldham oeuvre is worth having too, but these two are the pinnacle.

5.0 out of 5 stars After it's open, it's unlimited! 1 Mar 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
At first, it may seem dingy, purposefully clumsy, lame. Occasionally rocking, but nothing special. Then the iris opens, and its perfection is revealed. I have long claimed to not be so crazy about Will Oldham -- "I like more rockin stuff, less affected stuff" -- but the truth is, I rarely listen to this album just once through anymore -- I am ALWAYS hitting play once it's over. You have to give it time, though. Bravo, gentlemen! Robert Arellano who plays guitar on this just published a novel with Akashic books. And David Pajo... oh, Pajo!

4.0 out of 5 stars White as the driven snow 9 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're familiar with will oldham, his style, his wit, you might find this album encompassing all...Like any of his albums, arise therefore primarily, it takes more than one or two listens to really appreciate...In fact, it took me about a month to really understand its own twisted poignancy- For example on the best friends number, "...and brought him to the waterline/, and constrained him while he struggled for air/ and as as i pulled him back and kissed him/, and we both went off in a hurry to the fair"...his understanding of the dydactic paradox of love and hate are brilliant, backwater, and touching to even the most cynical. Will's voice throughout the album is so much stronger than it used to be, as he's created his own sound based upon his earlier pubescent ramblings and those of the cowboys of yore...my roomate insists that this is music to listen alone to, or at least not while he's around, if you get my drift...a must have for palace fans...

5.0 out of 5 stars my favorite oldham album 23 Mar 2006
By O. K. Granger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
but not my favorite palace album. That would be There is No One. Anyway, I just spent too much time checking out the reviews for James Blunt, and was befuddled at how many people passionately love him, when he obviously isn't that good. I really think what's going on there is that people want him to be deep and a genius so they make him one-so they get to listen to "deep" music without having to be challenged in any way. I know music is personal, but Blunt is tripe. But here, with Mr. Oldham, I could understand how opinions could defer so widely. His music is difficult, and therefore when you like it, it is really a personal, intimate thing. I love this album, and maybe even if you don't you could understand how someone could, unlike Mr. Blunt's pablum.
