This review is from: Turbulent Indigo (Audio CD)Time and cigarettes normally do horrible things to your voice (certainly my late Aunti Flo') - but Joni Mitchell has managed to make an exception. By the early nineties, her voice had matured into a lower, sultry tone compared to earlier works. And nothing could suit her later work better.
As there are distinct periods in the Mitchell catalogue, Turbulent Indigo doesn't really have to compete with Blue or 'Ladies of the Canyon' to be my favourite, its somehow different yet retains the same brilliance of songwriting and personal touch; although it isn't autobiographical this time.
The title track, plus Yvette in English and Sire of Sorrow all stand out for me - they are the sort of songs you want to listen to with absolutley no intereference on interuptions. My advice? Buy a really good set of closed earphones, turn down the lights and listen to a masterpiece.
