From fdistani 04/17/2016 22:57
Along with Sufjan Stevens and Nick Drake she's perhaps the most emotional voice in the history of folk music. It's true that Divers is her most accessible record so far but if you want to really get into Joanna's discography it's best to start with her most raw album (TMEM) and explore her discography chronologically.

The instrumentation on her albums is good but her voice is annoying having said that Divers (2015) seems to be a little more accessible I can only play Ys for about 10 mins before I have to change the C.D. her voice just doesn't do it for me and I love female voices.

Her voice is unbearable. Clearly, she has fans, and many of the comments hear make highly positive mention of her voice. Well, I think it was Mark Twain who said, "it is difference of opinion that makes horse races."
For those who want to compare Ms. Newsom to what I would argue are magnificent female vocalists: I would say, check out the following: Susan Tedeschi, Amy Winehouse, Florence Welch, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, Sade, Pat Benatar, Beyonce, Adele, Beth Orton, Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Billie Holiday, Diana Ross, Karen O, Linda Ronstadt, Grace Slick, Mavis Staples, Dusty Springfield, Ann Wilson, etc.

Few other artists come close to Joanna Newsom's beautiful intricacy and mesmerizingly expansive scope. Scrap that. None do.

Her voice is a delicacy. Her lyrics are fine poetry. She's Dylan's equal as a musician-storyteller.
