Customer Review

on 9 March 2006
It is strange to reurn to an album after a break of 20 odd years. Often revisiting albums after such a period can result in disappointment. By contrast Hejira is a revelation in its stunning quality. In the aftermath of classics such as Court & Spark and The Hissing of Summer Lawns, at the time Hejira seemed to lack the melodic beauty of past glories.
From the first to last track there is a prevailing mood much as Pet Sounds.There is an enduring sense of self-discovery and relestlessness played out with a prevailing melancholy. The music gently seduces the listener. If Mitchell is enchanted by the freeway her artistry ensures you are similarly captivated.
It is genuinely difficult to suggest highlights in such a coherent work. Amelia still stands out a wonderful song - both intensely personal and allegorical. Blue Motel Room is another absolute delight.
Mitchell is at the height of her powers producing a work out outstanding quality. If it passed you by before give another try - it will be worth it.
