Popmatters
If Mitchell is silent after this, Travelogue will stand as a beckoning presence and a monument to 30-odd years of work, which is probably as she intended. But her legacy is already assured by the enormous shadow she’s cast over the art of singing and the craft of songwriting, as well as her example of how to stick to your guns, even in a business as sordid, shallowand full of carneys as the music business.

Rolling Stone
Sometimes the album sounds wrongly monumental, as on “Woodstock”; other times, it misses the boat, as on “The Last Time I Saw Richard,” which ignores the song’s thrilling harmonics. Travelogue translates Joni Mitchell as a scrupulously constructed puzzle. […]

The Guardian
Mitchell’s voice is a husky shadow of its former feather-light glory, mirroring how her joyful, playful attitude has dwindled to bitter dissatisfaction. […]
