I like her sound then and now however I love the vocal acrobatics from her more youthful recording. We all age, our voices too. Perhaps if she would write and record something that is not a makeover I would give it 5 stars. She still has the tools to make #1 records. Go for it Joni girl! I would like her to record "Way-fairing Stranger".

This version of Both Sides Now is lush with mystical symphonic background music and Joni Mitchells voice has a hauntingly beautiful and melancholy sound, rich with emotion. Truly a remarkable rendition by the songs equally remarkable composer.

Joni Mitchell is indeed an icon. Her song, Both Sides Now, was written when she was 21 years old. She records it again thirty years later, and the powerful words and haunting melody bring tears to my eyes. What she brings to the recording, is a woman who has actually lived the lyrics to this song. It is a message that speaks to all of us who have done a little living here on Earth. There is so much truth in it. You cannot deny the words that speak to your very soul. They will touch the deepest part of you. The spirit of who she has become as a woman is in her music. I love this song!!!!

I chose the long (almost 6 minute) version because I had never heard it. I much prefer the version from the single she recorded, which I would give five stars. This song and Send In The Clowns are two of my all time favorites.

I first heard this version during the opening of the Vancouver Olympics and was blown away. This was her iconic composition and
Judy Collins actually had the hit recording of the original version. Nice to have such a great song come full circle to it's original
voice, now sounding smokey and lush and brand new.

Beautiful tune I was haunted by after watching Love Actually in the scene where Emma Thompson realizes her husband has bought a necklace for his secretary.

This rendition of both sides now is from an older Joni with life experiences now in her back pocket. This is truly a song for all time. It is sweet and poignant, with a raspy sound every so often that says to you, "Yes, I have been around the block, I have stories to tell. The orchestration is full and haunting and at the same time hinting of love lost. It is sung with such wonderful phrasing from Joni that I appreciate it over the earlier version as I would appreciating a vintage aged wine. This song is in my top ten songs I'd take to my death!
