Released June 22, 1971. 1. All I Want Lyrics. The Blue album, there’s hardly a dishonest note in the vocals. At that period of my life, I had no personal defenses. I felt like a cellophane wrapper on a pack of cigarettes. I felt like I had absolutely no secrets from the world, and I couldn’t pretend in my life to be strong. With song after song of regrets and sorrow, this may be the ultimate breakup album. Its whispery minimalism is also Mitchell’s greatest musical achievement

Forthright and poetic, Joni Mitchell's songs are raw nerves, tales of love and loss (two words with relative meaning here) etched with stunning complexity; even tracks like "All I Want," "My Old Man," and "Carey" - the brightest, most hopeful moments on the record - are darkened by bittersweet moments of sorrow and loneliness.
The quintessential singer-songwriter album, its essence just Joni on acoustic guitar or piano, alone with her intimate, confessional songs. Oh, those songs!- River; A Case of You; Carey; This Flight Tonight; All I Want ; the title track, and 4 more. Joni Mitchell would go on from this '71 recording to make more popular, more ambitious, and more challenging albums, but she's never made a better one.

Joni Mitchell highlights all of her singing and song writing talent in Blue, crafting each song with utmost care. Each element of the album is composed with unrivalled passion, from the magic lyrics to the heartfelt vocals. That said, many listeners will drop out after one quick listen. I grew up with this album playing in my house all the time. It was the only Joni Mitchell album my mom had, and I sort of took it from there. This is truly a great album of songs. I really can't say enough about it.
