2.0 out of 5 stars Weird but a Widening of Horizons, 20 April 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Milk-Eyed Mender (Audio CD)
I first heard of Joanna Newsome through the ad featuring "Svetlana sucks lemons..." from This Side of the Blue. I decided to plunge in and buy the album, the track sounded quirky and original and perhaps the album was a hidden gem.

On first playing I thought a little girl had wandered into a recording studio and was singing gibberish. Joanna hasn't got the strongest of voices it has to be admitted - there is certainly a Bjorkish quality there though.

On second playing the album started to grow on me and it got under my skin as each song became more familiar and I got over my initial shock even if the lyrics were still a closed book to me. This Side of the Blue is the best track of the album. I doubt if I would buy more from this artist but I am glad that I've widened my musical experience.
