justanoldgod Nothing she does will compare to the debut album, but it will all come very close. If Kate Bush decided to write a baroque, chamber/Americana album it would come out as a copy of Ys. Just lighter than air and deeper than we can fathom. A gorgeous way to spend any part of your day.

Sam Duffy My favorite Joanna Newsom album--by far--and one of my favorite albums in general. The album has an incredible feeling of consistency.

I generally stick to listening to shorter songs (around 3-4 minutes) and this has songs 12 minutes and longer. That compounds it for me and shows me this album is special. Each song is unique, beautiful, and inspired.

about

A once-a-life moment, forged into the shape of an album. These five songs are worth a thousand pictures, and that adds up to a million words - and that's almost as many words as there are in the libretto for this epic (pron. epoch). But when words aren't enough....ah, just say "Ys," okay?
