"Tales of love and loss. But mostly loss “Write about what you know” is advice few have followed as thoroughly as Mitchell did on this set of laments, in which she ruminated on affairs with James Taylor and Graham Nash. Kris Kristofferson, hearing these songs, pleaded, “Joni, save something for yourself.” It was advice she chose to ignore. Standout tracks: “Carey,” “The Last Time I Saw Richard”"

The 150 Greatest Albums Made By Women (150 music items)

"After nearly fifty years, Blue remains the clearest and most animated musical map to the new world that women traced, sometimes invisibly, within their daily lives in the aftermath of the utopian, dream-crushing 1960s. It is a record full of love songs, of sad songs; but more than that, it is a compendium of reasonable demands that too many men in too many women's lives heard, in 1971, as pipe dreams or outrageous follies. "All I really, really want our love to do, is to bring out the best in me"

"“The bed’s too big/The frying pan’s too wide.” You know the feeling. Mitchell’s acoustic confessionals of freewheeling love and fuckups among the L.A. hipperati touch everyone. Blue’s open-hearted beauty inspired Annie Lennox, Alanis Morissette . . . and Led Zeppelin. Standout track: “Carey” "
