Customer Review

on 20 April 2006
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.

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.
