    This is a great idea, I'm still fairly new to her myself. I started out by listening to Have One on Me and it completely invaded my brain! Like I'd wake up in the morning with her lyrics and melodies in my head. It really takes a while for it all to absorb in cause there's such a crazy amount of content and ideas in 11 minute songs. Getting to know her through that album was pretty amazing.

    The other albums at the moment are a little spotty for me, I like Sprout and the Bean and Peach Plum Pear, I'm sure there's other amazing stuff but that's as far as I've gotten. Maybe this thread will push me to take a good listen.

    ^ Have you listened to Ys at all yet? I know some people find that album difficult to digest, but I know several people who were able to appreciate it after they connected with Have One on Me. The lyrics on Ys are just as complex and beautiful as some of the stuff on HOOM, and her voice isn't as jarring as it was on Milk-Eyed Mender. It took me a while to get into a few of the songs (Monkey & Bear, especially) but now I love all of it. Only Skin is 17 minutes long but it feels like it flies by now when I listen.

    I've been pretty much listening to Ys obsessively lately, I love it. I think it's safe to say I love it more than HOOM too, not sure what it is, but I find it touches me much deeper on an emotional level, a couple of the songs through listening have easily made me cry, the subject matter perhaps? HOOM feels cleaner, a lot more polished and professional whereas Ys feels very organic and kinda allowed itself to be what it is.

    I just listened to the song Colleen for the first time yesterday, would love to see her do more stuff like that.

    Colleen is in my top 5 Joanna songs. In fact, that EP is perfect. I love that version of Clam Crab Cockle Cowrie.

    ^ That EP is absolutely perfect, and gives a great overview of Joanna's music, I think.

    Cosmia on it is pretty amazing, such a warm alive feel.

    I always play the Ys Street Band EP for new ears - it's such an undeniably strong display of musicianship from all the players.
