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

Sad, spare, and beautiful, Blue is the quintessential confessional singer/songwriter album. 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.

In 1979 Mitchell reflected, " The " Blue " album, there ' s hardly a dishonest note in the vocals. I felt like I had absolutely no secrets from the world and I couldn ' t pretend in my life to be strong. But the advantage of it in the music was that there were no defenses there either. com/eyes ears/articles/crowe jrl joni mitchell.

If represented by quick snippets of sound, Blue would appear totally unattractive and dull. Blue demands a dedicated listen to fully appreciate the delicate and deep emotion. Some listeners will find this totally off-putting, but to ardent listeners, Blue reveals its tender form, most notably in the lyrics  . There are moments of pure happiness in the album, as Joni Mitchell captures what its like to have the whole world in front of you. Songs like Carey and My Old Man reflect on special memories of the past and look optimistically towards the future in equal amounts. It is with subtlety that Joni Mitchell expresses all her feelings, never overbearing the listener with clear-as-glass themes, as is common with modern singer-songwriters. Her themes are surprisingly introspective, as can be seen in Carey where she outlines her need to explore, her need to experience, her need to live "Last night.
