Joanna Newsom

So I had a Joanna Newsom album a while ago - this one, to be specific - and I honestly couldn't listen to it. I thought the instrumentals were interesting and that the overall sound was cool, but her voice, I just... couldn't do it.  

Luckily for me something changed and she's got a much more listenable timbre now, not quite as grating.  I actually really like this song and hope to get her new album and listen to the rest soon.  Sound a little like Frances Ruffelle to anyone else?  Just a smidge?  Maybe it's just me.  Or the fact that the sound of each of their voices seems to polarize people instantaneously.
