  • Before DREAMLAND came along, there had been collections of Joni Mitchell's most popular recordings (HITS) and an accompanying volume of esoteric tunes (MISSES), as well as an anthology of Mitchell's latter-day Geffen material. This disc, however, is the closest thing to a definitive single-disc portrait of the convention-flouting, genre-defining singer/songwriter. It contains a brace of Mitchell's most-loved selections (such radio favorites as "Free Man in Paris," "Big Yellow Taxi," and "Help Me") alongside more arcane fare ("Nothing Can Be Done," "The Jungle Line"), and keeps things up to date by including some 21st-century orchestral versions of older songs ("Amelia," "Both Sides Now") where both Mitchell's voice and gravitas are noticably deepened. From the effervescence of "Carey" to the tribal rhythms of "Dreamland" and the murky atmospherics of "Furry Sings the Blues" (the titular reference being to bluesman Furry Lewis), one can't help but be astonished by both the abandon with which Mitchell recklessly breaks down the boundaries of songwriting and the grace with which she simultaneously redefines them.
