Joni Mitchell has since the 1960s ranked among songwriting's most significant and remarkable voices, traversing folk, rock and jazz. But her disdain for the music industry led Mitchell to announce in 2002 that she would no longer record albums. She has lately reconsidered that decision, making a distribution deal with Starbucks/Hear Music. She returns in typically thoughtful fashion with her first collection of new songs since 1998. "Shine" is built with mellow minimalism around the social themes that have long been a mainstay of her work.
