Lady Lamb - Ripely Pine (2013)

Reason for Listening:
My Albums Scrobbled (2018).
Scrobbles: 9. Scrobble/Album_Song_Count: 0.75

I listened to Lady Lamb for the first time in 2011 when she opened for Beirut (see Lady Lamb the Beekeeper - Rams Head Live!); at the time she was known as Lady Lamb the Beekeeper.

The album has 20 scrobbles in 2015, 1 in 2016, and 9 in 2019. 9 of the 30 scrobbles are for "Crane Your Neck," which was part of my Top 58 but not my Top 26 in 2014 (see My Top 32 Songs (2015 Edition)).

I listened to the album once.
First listen.
Strong end ("Bird Balloons")
After listening to the album, I quickly skimmed through the album again. During this time I move "Florence Berlin" from a "0" to a "1," "Bird Balloons" from a "1" to a "2," and "Rooftop" form a "0" to a "1."

4: "Crane Your Neck";
3: "Regarding Ascending the Stairs";
2: "Hair to the Ferris Wheel"; "Aubergine"; "Bird Balloons"; "The Nothing Part II";
1: "Florence Berlin"; "Rooftop";
0: "You Are the Apple"; "Mezzanine"; "Little Brother"; "Taxidermist Taxidermist";

I absolutely loved Lady's Lamb voice when I first heard her perform and I think I've had this staying bias towards her music ever since. Having expressed that bias, I would say this album is excellent and deserves a high rating - like a 5.2. However, some recent ratings suddenly feel off as a result.

Overall Rating: 5.2/5
Favorite Song: "Crane Your Neck"
