Biography

Tracy Chapman helped restore singer/songwriters to the spotlight in the '80s. The multi-platinum success of Chapman's eponymous 1988 debut was unexpected, and it had lasting impact. Although Chapman was working from the same confessional singer/songwriter foundation that had been popularized in the '70s, her songs were fresh and powerful, driven by simple melodies and affecting ...

Product Description

Product Description

CD Album

Amazon.co.uk

After the enormous success of her eponymous debut album in 1988, enhanced by her appearance at a Nelson Mandela tribute concert that same year, it was never going to be easy for Tracy Chapman to deliver a similar bolt from the singer-songwriter blues a year later on this, her "tricky" second album. On Crossroads Chapman plays it cautiously from a musical point of view, offering a slightly fleshed-out version of the smouldering acoustics of her debut. But Chapman's subdued sound can't conceal the unabated anger of her lyrics. "Freedom Now", dedicated to Nelson Mandela, "Material World and "Subcity", a scalding diatribe against racism and urban poverty are reminiscent of Nina Simone in their quivering indignation. After this album, however, Tracy Chapman had made her point and seemed to lose interest in her career. --David Stubbs

This is a great album, definatly softer than 'tracey Chapman'. this ia a album that is thoughtful and can be listened to over and over. i have passed it to others who have all loved this album.
my personal fav songs are crossroads, bridges, b careful of my heart and all you have is your soul but to be honest there is not one song on this album that i dont like!

We bought three of Tracy Chapman's CD and we think they are great, we bought it on the back of one we already had - so all I can say is if you like her style, it's great.

The Cd is in good condition. The sound output is perfect without skipping

Crossroads is fantastic. It starts with the brilliantly enthusiastic and up beat 'crossroads' and then Tracy addresses some serious 'matters of the heart.' To anyone with experience of love the songs "bridges" and "be careful of my heart" are simply spell-binding. The choosing of "all that you have is your soul" for the last track on 'the collection' is testimony to the songs perfection. Tracy delivers powerful and highly intelligent advice and at the same time manages to maintain musical genious. This album is not particularly 'popish' but infinitely superior to any other attempts to be anything other than contemplative and/or optimistic, Tracy appears to make the best songs when trying to be melancholy and free of political anger, not to say that there isn't plenty of politics with 'subcity' and 'free.' If you like depressing music and Tracy then this is album is a 'must have' if you'll excuse the cliche.
