Turbulent Indigo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Joni Mitchell returned to the relatively spare style of albums like Hejira and her early folk collections on Turbulent Indigo, emphasizing her acoustic guitar strumming and singing on a series of songs that detail the political and social discontent she had previously explored on Dog Eat Dog and Chalk Mark in a Rain Storm. In the brief opener, "Sunny Sunday," a woman tries to shoot out a streetlight with a pistol and misses every night, a metaphor for the individual's futile struggle against civilization, and Mitchell repeats much the same message in songs like "Sex Kills," a generalized criticism of everything from lawyers to the hole in the ozone layer; "Turbulent ...

In the brief opener, "Sunny Sunday," a woman tries to shoot out a streetlight with a pistol and misses every night, a metaphor for the individual's futile struggle against civilization, and Mitchell repeats much the same message in songs like "Sex Kills," a generalized criticism of everything from lawyers to the hole in the ozone layer; "Turbulent Indigo," which describes the inability of people to understand artists; "Last Chance Lost," which treats romantic disappointment; and "Not to Blame," about spousal abuse. The low-key music and restrained vocals stand in contrast to the lyrics -- over and over, Mitchell's imagery refers to guns and violence. Turbulent Indigo provides a disturbing view of modern life made all the more compelling by its calm presentation.

    Best Album ever

    One of the absolute Top musical-artists of all time. Joni mitchell is a true visionary. Ive heard basically all of joni's work, and this is hands down, my favorite. in this album, joni is able to combine the lyric briliance of her earlier, folk work, with some of the instrumental genious found on her later-jazz work. in my opinion one of joni's greatest tallents s her ability to express a certain mood or vibe, musically--withought any lyrics at all. this incredible talent is blatantly apparent all throught this album. withought a doubt, one of the greatest musical works of all time, joni just gets better with age.
