Reviewed on 8/7/2009...
I got this cd because I already had her HITS cd. These songs ara a lot harder to listen to due to being somewhat obscure tracks and strange lyrics. Musically the cd is very good with a definitive jazz feel to it but as Joni got older her voice and her songwriting changed from the early 1970's that I enjoyed much better

Misses Hits the Mark
Barron Laycock | 06/21/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)
"A companion to the more popular Hits collection, Misses more thoroughly demonstrates Mitchell's depth, versatility and, yes, genius. This collection surveys, mainly, Joni's post-1980 work (highlights: Sex Kills, Magdalene Laundries, Passion Play), which has been largely overlooked by radio and her early-career fans. Another stand-out is Impossible Dreamer, a dreamy and pretty (yet powerful) cut from Dog Eat Dog. Joni's body of work is deserving of a larger, deeper anthology, but Hits and Misses will do for now. If you're unfamiliar with Joni's work and you wonder why countless musicians and fiercely dedicated fans worship La Mitch, pick up this set and find out."
A intriguing compliation than Hits

"Hits was simply that: A collection of Joni's greatest hits. This compliation includes cuts from her Jazz experiments of the Seventies (including Wolf in Lindsey from her Mingus album, named after Jazz bassist Charles Mingus who she worked with before his death), her forays into electronic music in the '80s(e.g. Impossible Dreamer, and Chalk Mark In a Rainstorm), and her return to her folk roots in the '90s (e.g. Sex Kills). It's one of the most interesting compilations I've listened to in a long time."
