A Few Days Later: Ys by Joanna Newsom

(See previous one-minute review for context of this.)

A few days later, I'm still deciphering Newsom's lyrics, but as far as the record is concerned, this shit is brilliant. Indescribable as this set of suites is (and deep as I am into a new draft of an old script), I won't go beyond that. But it's out today: you still might want to sample "Emily" or one of the other tracks online (live performances are also up on YouTube) before you pick this up because people will be beyond divided on this. My prognosis though, is simply this: it might not be genius, but there is genius in this record, and there ain't much of that to go around.
