    Even though it seems to not be an "easy" album to get into, this is absolutely my favorite Joanna Newsom record, no doubts. ♥

    I don't like double-LP's very much. But I LOVE this triple-one!

    Best Newsom album
  • Avatar for RussellChap
    I've only listened to this just once since I bought it on CD back in 2010. A triple album lasting 125 minutes is just too much of a challenge. To be honest I prefer my Joanna Newsom in shorter, more concentrated doses.

    How do people rate this compared to 'Divers'? I'm having trouble comparing the two. HOoM is so timeless but Divers is honestly perfection. I might like Divers more but would still consider HOoM the superior album.

    I understand why people could prefer Ys over Have One on Me, but I believe that this is Newsom's best album. Ys' epicness was very in-your-face and Have One on Me is a progression, more subtle and refined. Joanna's songwriting here is way more mature. Also forgot about Baby Birch and Autumn before. If someone says that only the first CD is good, it means that he never really listened to the other two. Not only the best of 2010, but quite possibly the best of after 2000 to this day [2]

    I don't think Go Long gets nearly enough love [4] Also Kingfisher ftw, two best tracks here

    "hurts to think the creator of such a beautiful album married the creator of "Jizz in my pants" The creator of "Jizz in My Pants" also made "Dick in a Box" and that one is a bonafide classic, so that evens it out.

    I'm here to use the "m" word: masterpiece.

    Great, great album. Took me years to listen through all the way.
  • Avatar for DDevilized
    Perfect album for getting desperate Tumblr whores into music.
  • Avatar for Rikkieo
    Took me a while to get into but I now think it's perfect.

    Am I the only one that sees the peacock tail as a giant pickle every time the album comes up?
  • Avatar for achres
    Surprised Kingfisher is so low. It's clearly the best track (._. )

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's interesting to see the the listener distribution on these songs fairly even, indicating that people aren't cherrypicking their favorites, but rather given an equal consideration to all of the songs. I was expecting to see Good Intentions as the most played, and I realize it is mistagged as of 6/2014, but even if you merged it with its correct title it has less plays than '81. Wow. WE NEED A NEW ALBUM JOANNA!
  • Avatar for urrrgh
    thank you.
  • Avatar for Abomination317
    '81 and the irritating Good intentions are easily skippable especially coming after the superb first two tracks.

    This is a pure peace of heaven. Straight from Joanna's mind, mouth and fingers. My gentle angel, my biggest muse.

    This album has no weak or forgettable tracks, it's pretty much perfection.

    @Goomba4001, isn't it funny how we all enjoy music differently? I absolutely LOVE HOOM but those tracks don't really resonate with me. Some songs were really slow growers, like In California (for me). optimistic_tour said it well. They're all good, while some are great.
  • Avatar for Goomba4001
    About a week after I posted that below, I got No Prevenance stuck in my head incessantly. The universe punishes anyone who tries to pick best/worst songs from this album. (And, mic180, what? What?!)

    I don't think Go Long gets nearly enough love
  • Avatar for mic180
    hmm, good question. For me it's King Fisher and You, Me, Bess and Have One On Me.
  • Avatar for optimistic_tour
    if anything is skippable it's only relative to the outstanding quality of the whole batch
  • Avatar for Goomba4001
    Which wins the award for most skippable track? No Provenance, or Occident? *dodges rocks*
  • Avatar for kitkat129
    Why are all of her songs so stunningly gorgeous? Not fair, I can't listen to anything else because I have all her songs on repeat and I just can't get enough of her music.
  • Avatar for optimistic_tour
    The best thing about this album is how fully it inhabits the definition of a "grower." Each listen through, whether a disc at a time or the whole three course meal, deepens and expands the spaces with which to penetrate her art, to get inside and find a place to breathe in the sheer love on display. I don't say this about many albums, but for this it is unequivocally true: after a dozen listens I'm actually wowed even more when I hear these songs. I'm knocked back in awe, lifted by inspiration, and set adrift to dream. Every time, this feeling grows. Every single time. Best of the year or not, it's certainly the deepest and most satisfying album.

    album of the year. no competition (tied with kanye's IF someone is being that generous)
  • Avatar for glenharrup
    she does it again! :o

    Album of the year obviously.
  • Avatar for h4h4
    It's growing on me, but I really don't think it's as good as Ys or The Milk-Eyed Mender.
  • Avatar for KingHeff
    one of the greatest albums of all time [2]

  • Avatar for android1985
    I officially heart this album. And prefer it to the more "rigid" Ys...

    I can't even string words together that would show my love for this album [2]
