The UK album cover is superior, but I’m not complaining. I’m trying to think of a better debut by a singer-songwriter. Songs of Leonard Cohen comes to mind, but that’s kinda it. Paul Simon was already a known entity when he released his (flawless) self-titled album. Patti Smith’s Horses is similar in that it actually makes you feel the sudden explosion of new talent, but I listen to this album waaaay more. So like... Joanna Newsom maybe?
Throw some more contenders out there y’all, it’ll be fun.
