Sometimes I have this feeling that makes me say "I am so glad to be alive during this time to see this artist's career unfold." And this is one of those situations.

I've been listening to Joni Mitchell's first few records a lot lately, and I keep thinking, "How could someone so young write such original music and deliver it with such confidence and maturity." After listening to Short Movie several times today and watching this video, I'm ready to head to Europe and follow Marling around, Deadhead-style.

I can hear some beautiful, surprising lyrics here, but I have to get past a "meh" feeling about the music itself, at least for the first several songs. And I've listened more than once.

 

I want to like this. I really do.

Man, I love this record. Ordered the double deluxe vinyl because I know I'm going to keep listening. 

 

By the way, she's also got an article in The Atlantic:
