This review is from: Have One On Me (Audio CD)
I would recommend that you read the accompanying booklet containing the text of the lyrics as you listen. You'll have a better understanding of the songs as well as appreciating Joanna's skillful phrasing. Having written all her own material with little or no repetition in the lyrics; all that I can say is "Wow".
In an age where a lot of singers seem to thrive on songs that are boringly repetitious (e.g. Sarah Blasko's song "Is my Baby Yours?" on her album "As Day Follows Night"), Joanna Newsom is a breath of fresh air, a very talented song writer, a remarkable singer and skillful musician.
Joanna's music is unique. If you can look beyond the child like voice you will find much to enjoy in this collection of songs.
Five stars are not enough for this album.
