    Sleep sleep sleep sleep sleep, this album was just so boring, I love Blue, but this album was just so bland and boring. 2002 was a great year for music, and this album wasnt the reason why

    Simply the finest album I have ever listened to. And I have listened to it hundreds of times. I can't believe this masterpiece! It is a thrilling lable of love.

    It is really something. You must not only listen to it once; it is much more complex than most pop shit you hear now days.

  1. If you can forget that Mitchell once used to swing, the settings offer warmth and bring out melodies that weren't apparent her first time around.
  2. At moments lush and beautiful, at others overly busy, but never less than daring.

    Her hits are underrepresented, more recent songs are overrepresented, and [Vince] Mendoza's overly ornate orchestrations are dull, self-absorbed affairs, frequently swamping the great songs and Mitchell's vocals. [#12, p.147]
