At 56, Joni Mitchell isn't the singer she once was. She's even better than that. The voice is a little smokier now and she doesn't soar and swoop to the notes like she did on Big Yellow Taxi or You Turn Me On, I'm a Radio. But what she does do is go right to the heart of the matter on "Both Sides Now" ... unlike George Michael's elegantly crafted but sterile "Songs of the 20th Century" Mitchell isn't merely going over old ground but rather, finding fresh nuances.
