strong lyrics and lovely chill-out music,
This review is from: Wild Things Run Fast (Audio CD)Wild Things Run Fast was the album Joni Mitchell brought out before Dog Eat Dog,and there is a marked difference between the easy going and smooth jazz-type songs on Wild Things,and the aggressive music and biting lyrics of Dog Eat Dog.I would describe the music on Wild Things as easy listening and the lyrics as easy to listen to - there are no lines as cryptic and indecipherable here as you will find on an album like The Hissing of Summer Lawns.Joni really opens her heart on Wild Things:
"Carol..your kids are coming up straight
And my kid's a stranger
I bore her
But I could not raise her."
"A lot of good guys gone through my door.."
"I guess you learn to refuse what you think you can't handle."
"What makes you run wild thing..
I thought you loved me."
Overall,this cd is well worth listening to.The painting on the front cover is one of the best Joni has done.
