It is beautiful album. All the songs are off a very high standard, and what great voice.

Somehow 'Blue' was one of the last Joni albums I listened to in its entirety, I knew I had to wait until I could give it all my attention. & I'm glad I did, it was so rewarding.

Maybe the best album by a solo woman ever. The things Joni does with her voice are out of this world, and her songs (even to this day) sound melodic and fresh. It's actually quite a catchy record. Many bitter ingredients but also lots of sugar. More refined than Ladies of the Canyon, and more emotionally engaging than Court and Spark. Mitchell's magnum opus.

As cohesive and consistent as it gets while each track remains solid and unique. Faves are All I Want, California, and A Case of You.

Every song is solid, but as someone said previously, it does feel as if it is from 1971, whilst that is not necessarily a bad thing, it's not great either. Her voice also doesn't do wonders for me, but I can see how it would for others. Oh, and the lyrics are also pretty good.

Always used to find her voice a bit grating, and her melodies really hard to digest. Changed my tune now- this is a great singer-songwriter album. Really intimate and sparse to allow the emotional impact to hit. I have yet to really get into the lyrics, but still like it a lot. Favourites at the moment are probably My Old Man and River. Carey's nice and upbeat too.

Blue by Joni Mitchell is my favourite album by any female artist, there isn't a bad track here and particularly my fave three tracks Little Green, A Case Of You and The Last Time I Saw Richard are pretty much genius, every track has wonderful lyrics, and as the album title suggests, a soothing sorrow permeates throughout these lines.

Quite simply one of the greatest albums of all time. Blue, is Joni Mitchell's masterpiece. A brilliant collection of ten stunning songs. Every one is excellent, but my personal faves are, Carey, California, my old man, all I want, and, this flight tonight. In truth, I could have picked any of the other five. Genius, the ultimate bedsitter album.
