I bought this album as a birthday gift for a dear friend. I have had it , on vinyl form release and on CD since it was made available in that format. It is a superlative album. The songs are truly original and never seem to date. I listen to this album of JM's more than any other -it just keeps drawing me back to it. Blue is a great album too and the most lauded of Joni's albums, but for me For the Roses is perfect.

A CD of an album from way back when, when music and words meant such a lot! Joni Mitchell's "For the Roses" has to be among her best.

For the Roses is an album where Joni puts her guitar and piano to the forefront. The playing is superb and this album marks the start of the transition from the folk based early albums into a more sophisticated approach

5.0 out of 5 stars Joni Mitchell digs deep For the Roses., 27 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: For The Roses (Audio CD)
This is a complex album. Released in 1972 some songs were featured at Woodstock. There is much introspection here. Some of the pain is very apparent. Canadian Joni Mitchell isn't afraid to bare her soul. Banquet is a biting indictment of world greed. Blonde in the Bleachers speaks of infidelity. Let the Wind Carry Me recollections of poor parenting. There is economy of instrumentation. The songs direct emotional memories of unhappy times. Although sparse, the depth of musicality is clear. It takes patience to accustom to the parsimony of orchestration. The editorial comment is obscure. A jumble of child memories, bitches and unconsumated affairs. Self indulgent and inciteful, who really cares? These mixed up ballads are fine, but "when you dig down deep, it makes you heavy company"....... The music speaks for itself, but who benefits from it all? The person who buys the CD or Joni Mitchell?
