description:
This mix is an emotional story arc of the cuckhold's story in an unfaithful relationship. It begins with suspiscion, jealousy, anger, denial, forced accpetance, then rings true with depression and longing, and tapers out with numbness and a distant resentment. All these emotions are pieces of glittering mica in the jagged conglomerate that can be labeled as "sadness".

Chan Marshall is the epitome of a sad songwriter. She takes the song made famous by Nina Simone and turns it into a sparse and haunting eulogy to the need for being loved. The line "I hear the sound of mandolins" always gets to me.

Track Description:
"He washed me shore and he took my pearl/
And left an empty shell of me." If you know the biography of Ms. Apple you know she's talking about something very different here, but the overall sentiment, the listlessness, the somber mood, the need to not feel are all integral to the structure of the cuckhold's arc.

my hands/
my deep blue dream" are key poignant lyrics.

The lyrical content of this song can be interpreted in a number of ways, but Tori's musical warbling and cooing strike an emotional chord regardless. She touches upon methods undertaken to help the protagonist resolve his or her internal strife with

And this little masochist
Is lifting up her dress
Guess I thought I could never feel
The things I feel."

The idea seems better than the execution, as a few tracks ("A Blower's Daughter," "Colorblind") feel out of place. Still, the idea is really good, the cover art is fantastic, and overall the mix shows a lot of careful thought and planning. Great job.
