    A true Masters final last stand??

    Having been a fan of Joni's music for what seems most of my life, I can only say that this music touches me and also leaves me saddened at the same time. As we all grow older and change we still cling to many things, music has always been the most important and I thank Joni for this beautiful swan song, a recap, the words have always done the talking but with Joni's beautiful, heartfelt, "mature" voice she has added so much more demention to her voice, the quality, the timing all so different than what was originally sung, I love all of Joni's many sides, shame on those who critique Joni's later works, she is in a whole different place in her life. More than ever I feel the bond to her burnished vocals as I get older, what she says is so real I had hoped for more appreciation in her works from all those who just dug her way back then. This intimate collection has so many jewels that will continue to shine brightly as the years go by. I hope Joni has a change of heart and makes music for herself and the millions of fans that still think she can do what ever the hell she chooses. A rare, career, stellar musician/writer/human being and most important, as vital as ever. Wonderful collection of music, congrats to Vince for the Grammy for "Woodstock's" orchestration.

    Orchestration Kills

    As a hard-core Joni Mitchell fan I find this album is like meeting Joni in an institution where she has been heavily sedated with Prozac. The music lacks the guts and bite of the originals. For those who are content with "elevator" renditions of their favourite songs, this album is for you.

    Songs of My Growing Up

    I was in high school in the 60's in Detroit, and every word Joni sang resounded in my life. I followed her career and music, and the feelings for her music and writing are still heartfelt by me. Watch the DVD biography called Woman of Heart and Mind and then you'll then really understand how talented Joni REALLY is. And you'll understand the musical redemption of her life in this very fine,and very beautiful album ...

    Joni Mitchell Cannot Be Over-Rated

    Joni Mitchell has changed modern music in ways unlike other female performers. She writes, sings, performs, and finds just the right people to perform the music she wants to present in just the way she wants it done. Her experience is reflected in this recording, and the people involved are, of course, perfect for shining a spotlight on her achievements both past and present. She expresses herself here not just in her singing and playing, but uses the entire orchestra as her voice. For those who grew up with her music, her voice is also our voice, our past is tied up in the music that Joni Mitchell has created.

    Imagine If.

    With the greatness that is possessed on this album with Joni, Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, imagine if Jaco Pastorius had lived to perform with them. It would then be nothing short of heavenly.

    Joni Mitchell is probably the best singer-songwriter ever.

    Joni Mitchell's final album is truly outstanding. I've heard some songs, like the very impressive "The Dawntreader", and the striking "You Dream Flat Tires", and they're truly whopping. I've been a Joni Mitchell-fan for a long time now, and I think this is her best album.

    Joni shows what can be done with her music

    I love this album. It puts her in a category with classical song composers like Schubert and Poulenc. She is also demonstrating to vocalists and performers what can be done with her compositions. On past albums her music was idiosyncratic, performed the way only she could perform them, but she shows us with this album that her music doesn't need to be off limits to other performers. I'm hoping this album inspires other artists (from pop,jazz,rock and classical genres) to begin including her compositions in their repertoires

    JONI IS GOOD...BUT WAY OVERATED!

    Save your money for the Carly Simon release, "Anthology." It will be outstanding! Also, seek out releases by SARA HICKMAN. Another truly gifted singer-songwriter.
