Joni Mitchell – Shine (folk)
Like much of Mitchell’s later music, Shine is both personal and inventive. Sadder-but-wiser song-poems still respond with immediacy to the changing world around her. An electronic orchestra supplements her piano and guitar playing.
El Gran Silencio – Serie Verde (Spanish Rock)
Like someone put the Spanish station and the Alternative station too close together on the radio dial so the signals bleed into each other. Rapped lyrics and rock guitars compete with accordion Cumbias, to hip effect.
