joni's white album?,
This review is from: Don Juan's Reckless Daughter (International Release) (Audio CD)
I discovered Joni with 'Hissing' and 'Hejira', so this seemed like the next logical step. After a few listens, I couldn't help thinking what a perfect album it would have been as a single, not a double. It contains some of the most essential and some of the most throwaway songs of her entire career. 'Jericho' and 'Silky Veils of Ardour' are just melodically and lyrically sublime.
However, tracks like the uncharacteristically banal 'Talk to Me' and the overblown 16-minute 'Paprika Plains' just don't cut it.
It's a lot cheaper now it's available in the UK, so it's probably worth getting just to add the good tracks to your Joni mix tape. Just don't expect the consistency of the previous two albums.

Silky Veils of Ardour took me many many listens before I felt it's magic...but it's one of the best on the album and unlike any other acoustic song she's ever done :)
