Has anyone heard this?
Does it sound just like Ys?
and no. It's pretty fucking awesome though. I whole-heartedly recommend.
It's a very strange record with blue grass, disney strings and rock 'n' roll all in the mix. Certainly an interesting record but if you're expecting it to sound like Y's you'll be disappointed. You can hear how Joanna was influenced and some of the strings have a similar feel but they're pretty different with Y's being far superior. Worth a listen
except for the general flavour of Van Dyke Parks' string arrangements, which have always been very rich, sometimes overly so.
It's an odd record, but worth listening to - both rewarding and irritating. Personally think it's much more interesting than Ys, but I don't like that record so sucks to me if you do.
