You know what really sucks? This would be a 10/10 had she not fucked up the meteoroid thing.
It baffles me that people can know Jo's relationship with her sister, understand the theme of Emily, listen to songs with similar themes such as This Side of the Blue ("The signifieds butt heads with the signifiers / as we all fall down slack-jawed to marvel at words / while across the sky sheet the impossible birds / in their steady illiterate movement homeward") and En Gallop ("Never get so attached to a poem you / forget truth that lacks lyricism"), and *still* not come to the conclusion that the error is intentional.
It's not hate for Monkey & Bear, it's overwhelming love for the other tracks.
(although anon fucked up, he meant Only Skin > Sawdust & Diamonds = Cosmia > Emily > Monkey & Bear)
See my honest opinion is
Emily = Monkey and Bear > Sawdust and Diamonds > Only Skin = Cosmia
but as long as we all agree that the entire album is 10/10 then i guess it's cool
