    I want the lyrics to this either bounded up in a storybook with fucking illustrations or printed out on a fucking scroll in Olde English font and hung on my wall. Shit.

    This is prog. Never liked this album. Not that all prog is bad.

    Everything about this song is flawless. Joanna Newsom's vocal melodies evolve throughout the song to fit the song's situations. Her rhyme schemes are INSANE, lots of slant rhyme and multis. (For example, "My heart is a furnace; Full of love that's just and earnest. Now you know that we must unlearn this, Allegiance to a life of service, And no longer answer to that heartless Hay-monger, nor be his accomplice" where 'furnace' rhymes with 'earnest' and 'unlearn this' and 'service' and then slant rhymes with heartless and accomplice.. 'No longer' and 'haymonger' sneak in there as well). And the then the narrative, dark yet still very much an imaginative children's tale, rife with whimsy imagery. And then you got the backdrop courtesy of Van Dyke Parks hittin you cross the head. This song is 10/10 perfection. [2]

    Joanna's masterpiece. Yes, it's probably the most accessible song on Ys, but let's not give it pretentious hate because of that. Everything about this song is flawless.
