Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 30/500!
Joni Mitchell's RIAA certified Platinum 1971 album BLUE captures this folk legend at her absolute peak in form and creativity. Features the Joni gems Carey, California, and the title track Blue.
"With song after song of regrets and sorrow and a smoky-blue cover shot of Mitchell on the edge of tears, this may be the ultimate breakup album. Its whispery minimalism is also Mitchell's greatest musical achievement. Stephen Stills and James Taylor lend an occasional hand, but in "California," "Carey" and "This Flight Tonight," Mitchell sounds utterly alone in her melancholy, turning the sadness into tender art." - www.rollingstone.com
"Sad, spare, and beautiful, Blue is the quintessential confessional singer/songwriter album. Forthright and poetic, Joni Mitchell's songs are raw nerves, tales of love and loss (two words with relative meaning here) etched with stunning complexity; even tracks like 'All I Want,' 'My Old Man,' and 'Carey' the brightest, most hopeful moments on the record are darkened by bittersweet moments of sorrow and loneliness."
