This is the first stuff I've heard from Joanna Newsom and I couldn't get into the distinct style and her unusual vocals. The songwriting seemed interesting though for those that can get past that.

Joanna Newsom made her debut over a decade ago on the venerable indie label Drag City. While she was initially lumped in with the poorly defined "freak folk" movement, she quickly moved in a different direction with subsequent albums, on which she pushed songs past the usual lengths and embraced lush orchestration. Her third album, "Have One on Me," was a triple album. She's clearly ambitious and committed to her own peculiar, particular brand of art. As much as I admire her talent, I find her voice, which has the high, fluttery quality of Joni Michell, a little hard too take for an entire album. Still I enjoyed "Divers" and would recommend it to all fans of baroque indie harp music. Newsom also appeared in the film "Inherent Vice."

Wonderful album. Second only to Ys in Newsom's most impressive discography.
