I always hated NMH.
I thought Isaac Brock could write some amusing lyrics. Lonesome Crowded West was good but I haven't listened to them in over a decade.
Joanna Newsom's Milk Eyed Mender is legitimately good. The one after though... Can't remember what the title was... I thought its popularity was an elaborate joke. I found it was a good barometer of pretentiousness if someone said they liked it. And fucking Van Dyke Parks did arrangements! Sad. Song Cycle and Discover America are brilliant.
