9/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 6th November 2014
“The Milk-Eyed Mender” is the highly accomplished debut album from Joanna Newsom. Each album she has done has been quite different, whilst still having a defining stamp of Joanna Newsom’s originality. Her harp playing adds richness to songs that are already original in structure and execution. “Sadie” is the album’s centerpiece. It is an astonishing six-minute piece that ebbs and flows and is seemingly about her dog.
“The Spout and the Bean”, “Peach, Plum, Pear” and “Inflammatory Writ” are other outstanding examples of her musicianship and poetry. Some people can’t get past her voice enough to listen to her. Some people are also wrong.
