The best songs feel more like conversations rather than artworks to be hung on the wall and admired from several paces away. Newsom seems to sing from somewhere deep inside of them, and her earthy presence has a way of drawing you in, bringing you closer to her music than you've been before.

We already know Joanna Newsom isn’t afraid to go big. Hell, she sits her small frame behind that hulk of a harp all the time, and knocks out those strange, percussive notes of hers. However, Have One on Me isn’t big—it’s enormous. It’s an album without borders, its two-hour-plus running time is an unruly and unreasonable length. We saw her expand from tight, contained songs on her debut The Milk-Eyed Mender to

sprawling yet stately folk epics on Ys, backed by the huge swirl of Van Dyke Parks’ string arrangements. So, at first glance, you could mistake this new, triple-album as a next step for her.

A triple album that surprisingly works quite well. Joanna is on a whole new level of songwriting with this release. I would say that its a great improvement over Ys which is an album that is hard to beat. Even if its her longest album and simpler than Ys, the personal lyrics and beautiful instrumentation make this her best album yet.

Favourite tracks: Easy, Baby Birch, Kingfisher

Like a Celtic Orpheus singing Ovid. What a marvel she is.

Still consider this one of the very best albums I've ever heard.
