in a word: gorgeous
23 Jun 2014, 9:31pm
Easily one of the most incredible pieces of music I have ever heard, and likely will ever hear. The lyrics are of course effortlessly gorgeous, and at the same time humble and deeply earnest. The melodies sound ancient, familiar, and haunting. The Dorian mode melody in the middle alone brings me to tears, but the lyrics about Pompeii sung through it bring me to my knees every single time I hear it. The almost religious tones of the failing relationship in the first half seem to be an echo of past lives ended instantly in a volcanic eruption. Can there be a more effective analogy for broken love? "To whose authority do you consign your soul?"

Gods, I thought it would never end.

Joanna, how are you so perfect???

New words need to be invented to describe the greatness of the whole Have One On Me album, every song is just so incredibly beautiful, but if I had to choose one, I'd say this is my favorite song on it.

"And with your knife you evicted my life from its little lighthouse on the seashore" This song is definitely a masterpiece

Stand here and name the one you loved Beneath the drifting ashes And in naming, rise above time As it, flashing, passes wow!

I would probably die if I saw this live

Powerful yet so feminine and delicate
15 Dec 2011, 4:18am
Deliciously medieval.  A masterful song.

blo-ho-hod ha-ad no bounds

Amazing beyond words. <3

and I saw that my blood had no bounds

One of the most incandescently lovely songs in existence.
8 Nov 2010, 10:14pm
Have One On Me is still whooping my ass. I just discovered how beautiful this song is.
15 Oct 2010, 9:12pm
Kate Bush just woke up and wants her dress back. Still a great track though.

5:42-on leaves me convinced that Disney (might) be able to claw its way out of its grave and into a glorious reincarnation IF they turned Joanna loose, no restrictions/deadlines/artistic constraints, to create a kind of epic, new global mythology -- to rank second to none before. Hers would be the narrative and the soundtrack. Of course, they'd have to find someone of the caliber of James Jean or Yoshitaka Amano for the art direction to live up to the aesthetic quality standards Joanna would set. Charm without kitsch; pathos without ham-fisted oversentimentality :}

rarely do I encounter a song this perfect.

The arrangement of this track really makes me think of a Dolly Collins's arrangement but on more contemporary instruments. This is a good thing.

Those last 3.15 get me every time. Suddenly it becomes a deep timeless archetype of a song
15 Aug 2010, 10:37pm
This is probably my favourite song of her. The music, the lyrics - breathtaking.

Probably the best song on the album (currently)
20 May 2010, 9:01am
5.50 onwards this brings up my goose bumps. It suddenly seems to be a timeless edifice rising out of the sonic landscape....or something like that.
17 May 2010, 7:49am
Honestly, I just cannot get over this song. It just astounds me every time

one of the standouts of this massive triple LP of brilliance
1 Apr 2010, 4:47pm
this song stumps me. <3
29 Mar 2010, 12:23am
So fucking epic, especially the last 3 and a half minutes. The post-apocalyptic imagery towards the end reminds me of 'The Road', a bit.
28 Mar 2010, 11:13pm
Amazing song... and I just love the Paradise Lost reference!
28 Mar 2010, 8:59am
16 Mar 2010, 6:10pm
Amazing Song. Can's stop listening..
9 Mar 2010, 2:35pm
>5:50 soooooo beatiful

Agreed with the Stairway to Heaven comment, excellent song though!
5 Mar 2010, 8:17am
'astonishing' is a good word to describe this
2 Mar 2010, 4:10am
This is some serious Sylvan shit.
1 Mar 2010, 9:57pm
after the 6 minute mark.. wow. goosebumps.
28 Feb 2010, 10:35pm
pretty much a masterpiece
27 Feb 2010, 5:36am
slightly 'stairway to heaven'...
26 Feb 2010, 11:24pm
i love it.
24 Feb 2010, 1:57pm
I think this is still my favorite song off the new album. Which says a lot.
23 Feb 2010, 12:41pm
astonishing piece of music
20 Feb 2010, 7:43pm
the strings, the strings...I love them.
20 Feb 2010, 3:41pm
Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant.
14 Feb 2010, 2:39pm
indeed very "YS" which is perfect :D
12 Feb 2010, 3:25pm
