#23 Joan Baez, "Joan Baez"
To be fair, I'm not finished the album as I write this but suffice to say that, before listening I didn't like Baez and I still don't. I appreciate her skill, her ability and her long road. I just can't stand her voice. There's a preachiness that starts here on her first album that will never leave. That she's been a strong advocate for human rights for many decades is something I respect. I just don't want to listen to her music. Unlike most critics, I'm strong enough to say that I don't think she's bad, I just don't like her music. From the start, she was professional, poised and polished. Moving on.
