Review of Clouds Print-ready version

Melody Maker
September 27, 1969

A superb second album from one of America's best singer-songwriters. Joni sings beautifully and with great feeling throughout and her songs are underlined by simplicity and lucidity. All she has written is of a highly personal nature dealing with tangible situations and reflecting her reaction to them. She successfully communicates various emotional responses with songs like the exuberant "Chelsea Morning' or the sad "I Don't Know Where I Stand." Also included are "The Gallery," "Both Sides Now," "Roses," "Blue," "The Song About The Midway," and the dramatic anti-war "The Fiddle And The Drum." Joni Mitchell is a great talent and this album more than confirms it.
