Joni Mitchell's "Blue" is one of the most melodic and emanating albums of all time. Joni Mitchell composed most of the songs during a trip to Europe. The songs are filled with the emotions of the singer who was, at the time, fragile because of her success. Joni Mitchell reveals all her feelings, her thoughts, she talks about her daughter and her desire to flourish. This album is composed only of Melancholy and Romanticism, it is one of the most beautiful musical, vocal and literary masterpieces of all time.

10/10

Best track: "All I Want"

Lovely voice, powerful lyrics and simple instrumentation. @PeterSmith I also got to this due to BEA and I understand and respect your opinion but I think that you didn't quite grasp Joni's lyrics. I wouldn't define this album as sad, at least a high percentage of it conveys me other emotions.

Really don't understand why this album is rated above Carol King's Tapestry which is full of classic songs. Not a bad album but also not my cup of tea.

I also listened to this album as part of working through the BEA100 - and I see loads of great reviews about it, but, I guess it's just not my cup of tea. Sure it may be putting her heart out there, but if I want something depressing to listen to I would go for Lou Reed's Berlin (second side). But hey, if we all liked the same stuff all the time there might only have been a few dozen bands over the last 50 years.
I'll revisit this album as tastes change and familiarity might help...

Good album by a truly artistic soul. Enjoyable but happy to listen to this once every couple of years.

Starting my listen of the top 100 BEA albums today.

She has a very impressive voice and the music was pleasant to listen to but not necessarily my cup of tea.
