    Me too! Especially with the lyrics cross-over with Time, As A Symptom - feels very Tori/Stevie Nicks to have a b-side where you can see where she was (lyrically, at least) working things out and perhaps taking things from one song to add to another.

    I think the flow of the album would've been messed up had this song been left on. Also, maybe she thought it was a bit redundant? I remember her talking about this song. Didn't she say something like it was messing with the sequence?

    Buh bye "Same Old Man", hello "Make Hay!" That's my dream scenario.

    I love the album and have listened to it countless times, but I am only now beginning to discover the beauties of Anecdotes. and Waltz has become one of my favorite Joanna songs.

    Everything about this album continues to grow for me. This is undoubtedly one of my top three, maybe two, albums of all time.

    I listen to this every time I fly. I try to start 'Time, As a Symptom' so it crescendos just as the plane lands. It makes for a very emotional end to a trip.

    I'm so glad Waltz has grown on people! I remember when it came out it wasn't held as highly in regard as the rest of the album. I love the instrumental breakdown right before the final moments of the song.

    This album is probably my favorite Joanna, even if it's for as silly a reason as it was the first of hers that I experienced released in real time.

    Also, the title track! So goddamn beautiful! Another underrated one! I may not connect to the lyrics but when youre cruising around at night and The Things I Say ends and the opening harp notes are plucked on Divers, it just makes you feel something strong inside.

    There are certain songs that you might not connect with lyrically but there is such a strong musical connection made through listening to it, it's as if the lyrics don't matter. That's how I feel about the title track. She could be saying anything at all and it wouldn't make a difference, I'd love it all the same. The composition of the song just feels so right.

    Divers , the song, is ❤️ .

    Just coming in to say that I listened to HOOM for the first time in awhile and my goodness why do I not listen to it every damn day?! It's astonishing, really. And it has everything I love about her. I can get lost in that album and its images SO hard. It's so cinematic to me. I feel like I've watched a movie when it's done. It also came out right after I moved to NYC and turned 30 so it's very sprcial for me. I can smell the train, the streets of Bushwick, the bodega that was below me. It's the same feeling I get with BFP and therefore, it has to be an effing masterpiece ( it is).
