The perfect winter album. I'm listening to it for the first time, and that thought just jumped at me.
Joanna newsom - Ys
I just got round to getting this the other day...
I was cynical because of the whole "grown men crying" over it thing, but I can totally appreciate that now. I would give it album of the year, even just for emily.
those strings! Lyrics!
Despite being put of by this description at first, It really is quite "magical"
i havent loved an album so much for many years
it would probably suit most seasons. You are right.
It sounds like the soundtrack to an amazing classic-style Christmas movie.
and ive not even been able to properly listen past the first few tracks.
Every time emily finishes i have to listen to it again.
No other 12 and a half minute song can do that for me.
gonna listen to it in the car on the way to her parents in london this afternoon, yaysome! the simple pleasures are the bestuns
to find her irritating ?
and some people for ages. persevere.
I really can't.
i thought this would be a total lylealbum.
But no !
Not for me !!!
My dad says "she sounds silly and never shuts up".
for once !
Cerys is way better !
How can you ignore the rest of it just because you dont like her voice? Shes an amazing singer
she had a "different" voice before listening to it. So, it doesn't really irritate me, I knew what I was getting myself into.
I'm not convinced by the music either...
but it seems to me like listening to a rather worthy radio programme on Radio 4. You only need to hear it once.
and have decided that it's actually a bit shit really isn't it?
Fucking twee, drawn out, pompous, derivative bollocks.
"N" more like.
im whey funnier than her
must just being sarcastic, you did rate it a 10
I find it total shit personally
pretentious, bloated, boring
and she DOESN'T ever shut up
ultimately it's just too precious
I second Eoin's LOLZ. I can barely think of a record released to our ball-park audience that is less derivative. And neither can you, actually, JB.
the fact that that was me posting as him.
i do find it impossible to listen to tho.
it's millions better
Do you need to focus on listening to it, and make sure you're not doing anything else?
Because I've bought The Knife and Joanna Newsom this week and I've found myself loving "Silent Shout" after just 2 listens but I just can't seem to enjoy "Ys" yet. It's similar to the problem's I'm having with Grizzly Bear and Liars.
I seem to always be doing something else when I listen to a record, should I not?
listening through headphones. it was pretty nice, i'd reccomend it.
Silent shout is a lot more immediate a record though, i think you just need to give Ys more time.
with frosty fields outside
I first got into Ys whilst lying in bed.
expecting it to be shit, then being stolen by it in the first 10 seconds.
who reads dis not own this yet?
get a move on.
tis incredible, cant stop listening to it. wish i'd heard it before choosing my albums of the year!
I didn't buy it...
not yet anyway
No matter what season.
But both are amazing.
It's weird to compare them, they're so different.
