Discordant, tough listen
on 29 May 2014
This is a well known Joni album, but I find it a hard listen. There are a couple of gems including the well known title track, but many of the others are experiments in minor keys, with dissonant harmony and unusual melodies. She is clearly trying to do something strongly artistic in these songs, for me this is not too successful.
A couple of the songs have me reaching for the skip button every time; despite its high sales, it is not my favourite Joni Mitchell album by a long shot.
