      Great! Buy it.

      This is a truly lovely album. Over 3 disks Newsom tells the story of a relationship from its birth, throught its developement and ultimately to its end. What personally surprised me is that this triple album - with many of the constituent songs topping ten minutes in length - doesn't feel unwieldy or intimidating. Since her first album, The Milk Eyed Mender, and even since last release, Ys, Newsom seems to have matured. This is both a positive and a negative. Her voice seems deeper, and musical directions previously unexplored are opened up on this album. Particularly noteworthy is the increased use of piano this time around. On the other hand I found part of me slightly missing the out and out bat-crazy Joanna that made me love songs like Peach, Plum, Pear on her debut. Equally I found that at times the hugely diverse collection of instruments used on certain tracks here actually made them a little crowded. Overall though this is an impressive feat, not only to produce a triple album but one as enjoyable as this with so little in the way of filler. Hats off to Joanna, she can have one on me.
