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.

AllMusic

At its best, these songs have the feel of an intimate live performance; at their worst, they’re lovely, but exhausting. Have One on Me is quite a technical achievement, but since Newsom has proven she can do just about anything, next time she shouldn’t try to do everything.

PopMatters

It’s too bad really, that Have One on Me is so overdone because there’s a decent album hidden somewhere in there. It’s an album the Newsom we saw in 2006 would have found, formed, and made shine.

Favorite Tracks: Baby Birch, Kingfisher, Have One on Me, Jackrabbits, Go Long, In California

Least Favorite: Ribbon Bows

Even though her magnum opus still remains on Ys, Joanna Newsom's next record is a fantastically-written, highly ambitious triple disc containing a massive tracklisting that ranges in lenght in just about two hours of music. The most incredible thing about this record is that not just it contains a great amount of music, but amazing music, through and through. Joanna's melodic flourished-vocals shine through each of the lush compositions and beautifully-written instrumentation, that shows itself ... read more
