Circadian Songs likes Clouds

The blog Circadian Songs does a review of Joni Mitchell’s second album Clouds, originally released in 1969.

Clouds made me think of Tori Amos stripped of her hysteria and left with her charming sensitivity. Finally it surfaced to me that while I was curious about Tori’s preciousness, I was really more drawn to the quieter qualities of introspection and honesty. What I’m trying to do here is not to draw a comparison of the two musicians, but to point out how great albums exhibit not so much characteristics of greatness in themselves; their greatness lies elsewhere, in making the listener realise something else about their own relationship with art.
