I don't agree that this should be one of the best
on 30 August 2014
Not even one of the 5th best. Good, interesting indeed (especially the last two tracks 9 & 10 sounds great). But the whole album is not like 1970-1977. The melodies are not as good as then. One can't remember the tunes. Sometimes even boring. - In fact I would prefer the not recognized albums: "Wild things run fast (3,5)" or "Don Juans Reckless Daughter (4,5)".
Though this is a very clean production (I prefer the more dirty 1970s analog sound) with warm but unfortunately also scary soundscapes in the background, there's not much folk/jazz singer left.
There's much snobbish going on with J. Mitchell, this is one example. People probably doesn't even notice that the band on "Turbulent Indigo (2)" doesn't play together as well, as on "Heijira (5)". This is more a production with layers.
