Honestly I've always thought of you as an incredibly skilled composer. The first album of yours I heard was The Little Red Songbook, and right off the bat I was struck by how the arrangement of "Old Friend, New Flame" evolved from verse to verse instead of the usual playing-the-verse-the-same-way-each-time strategy. I'll be the first to admit I don't know dick about theory or composition (though I've certainly tried to write my share of songs), but to me, the prurience of the lyrics was just one delightful element among many for these clever, intricate pieces.

And thanks for posting a link about through composition; I didn't know what it was, but I'd found the structure of "Coming In A Girl's Mouth" very striking and unusual.
