i don't know...
at first i was VERY hesitant to listen to this record. i thought her newer material would be so much different from her earlier work... and MAN ALIVE was a ever right, but it's this newer... edgier material and style of hers that makes it so much more worthwhile to listen to. her progressive ways & her newer, smokey vocals make this record such a good one.

through listening to this record over and over, i've developed a love for it.
man from mars, by far... is my most favourite on this record.

I must admit I have never ever heard of Joni Mitchells' music before. I guess I was never really into folk-rock genre. Until one day in my fifth decade...

I was on the bus and someone had the radio on. The song "stay in touch" was playing, I immediately had to know who this artist was, I enjoyed the husky voice and the heart felt lyrics. It left a deep impression on me. I bought the album and was completely "knocked out"; the cool/jazzy arrangements, the "voice" -- the creative poetical phrasings -- boy have I missed out on so much on Joni's Music. Something that I needed to address soon.

It is good to discover and have that warm glow inside , when you chance across a rare & brilliant artist, at any age!

I am sorry I did not discover you earlier. I guess it is never too late.

Thank you Joni
