For the Roses album for sale Product Description

For the Roses album for sale by Joni Mitchell was released Apr 12, 2011 on the Warner Bros. label. Between the stark, confessional singer-songwriter format of BLUE and the artful, streamlined jazz-pop of COURT AND SPARK, Joni Mitchell released this excellent transitional album. Located firmly between these stylistic poles, FOR THE ROSES looks to Mitchell's folky beginnings with wistful, piano-driven ballads like "Banquet" and the acoustic guitar lilt of the title track. At the same time cuts like "Cold Blue Steel and Straight Fire" push toward the unconventional melodies and rhythms--heavily influenced by jazz--that she would explore more fully on albums like HEJIRA. For the Roses CD music contains a single disc.   ...See Full Description

Coming between her classic Blue and the golden Court and Spark, I've always thought of For the Roses as "Green" Joni Mitchell is at the peak of her abilities here and the album is nearly flawless. One of our greatest's greatest.

Joni in transition
For the Roses songs This album catches Joni halfway between the "singer-songwriter" style of 'Blue" and the major shift that would be debuted in "Court and Spark" An excellent album with many standout tracks. The HDCD remastering is a significant improvement over the previous release and the sonic benefits are apparent even on non-HDCD equipped players.

Like wine, it ripes
For the Roses album for sale This cd shows the quality of Joni's songwriting and her sensitive side, a year after releasing the breathtaking record 'Blue'. It's not an accessible album like 'Court and Spark', but when you listen carefully over and over again, it becomes your own and then you actually HEAR the beauty of her music. Joni is an example for many singer-songwriters!
