5.0 out of 5 stars Joni pulls it out the bag again, 3 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turbulent Indigo (Audio CD)
I'm still a relative newcomer to Joni, I fell in love with blue and have enjoyed her following 3 albums and clouds however i never felt any of these other works quite matched blue because the Melodies were too often difficult as were the lyrics (court and spark is an exception to this) and also the vocals seemed perhaps older and wiser, but never as honest as blue. I've Been told Hejira is a great work so I'm gonna check that one out. Turbulent Indigo is a complete return to melody, lyrics and genuine vocals. every track has magnificent melody and lyrics although the tone is fairly fresh as Joni often hits on protest (sex kills, turbulent indigo) and the suffering of others (sunny Sunday, Magdalene Laundries, sire of sorrow, not to blame). Joni's voice has aged perfectly too, it's full of experience, the perfect example being how do you stop, bringing something to the table that James Brown missed, a real sadness at human incapability but also joy in the addition of the lines "how do you stop the ripening corn? how do you stop a baby being born?" at what we can achieve despite our Downfalls. For Me turbulent indigo is the closest joni's ever got to matching blue and in ways its an even more compelling listen than blue, it is an absolute essential in the joni catalogue
