Biography

Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation, Suzanne Vega emerged as a leading figure of the folk-music revival of the early 1980s when, accompanying herself on acoustic guitar, she sang what has been labeled contemporary folk or neo-folk songs of her own creation in Greenwich Village clubs. Since the release of her self-titled, critically acclaimed 1985 debut ... Read more in Amazon's Suzanne Vega Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Start at the beginning . . . . 24 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is probably the most under-rated of Suzanne Vegas's work, but is an album that repays careful attention. Like many artists, it is best to listen to her music in chronological order, taking the time to appreciate what she is doing. There may be side alleys that she explores, or different directions that she takes, but they are never boring. Put the "Best of" albums aside, and take the time to appreciate her fine music album by album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, dusty, ice-cool and poetic 25 Jun 2002
Format:Audio CD
Suzanne Vega's first album told us she could write pretty folk songs, with a cool, distant twist. "Solitude Standing" brought that detached, "I-Am-A-Camera" talent into a sharper focus. "Days Of Open Hand" is the album where she strays deeper into darker, more mysterious territory.
There is a very clear, cool, detached tone here - and the low-key melodies and dry, almost dusty production lend an almost ghostly, almost psychotic feel - especially on the chilling song, "Institution Green".
This album seems the musical equivalent of reading Sylvia Plath's short stories in "Johnny Panic and the Bible of Dreams" - it may not be her most accomplished work, but it has an unnerving quality none the less.
Disquieting, subtle and unsettling - and frequently, quite brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourite albums 12 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
This album works as a collection of 11 tracks. It's one of the few I've heard with no weak songs.

Her best album by far in my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated 14 July 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a sadly underrated album, mainly because of the "Book of Dreams" single, which sounds as if it is attempting to be popular amidst all the darker strains, and getting lost in the process. It is, as a result, the poorest track there.
The truth is that there are a lot of Suzanne's best qualities here, from the poignant 'Tired of Sleeping', to the atmospheric 'Room off the Street' (a personal favourite of mine). It can be harder work than other albums, and is probably not for the first time listener (start at the beginning!), but it is worth the effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars A precise record 26 Sep 2013
By DL
Format:Audio CD
Such deceptively layered songwriting. Precise sounds on this record. Roomy music. Yet intimate.

I am not the most eighties kind of fan but this record I often find myself fascinated by.

Recommended.

I used to own a vinyl copy of this album, but someone stole it. Nice to have a copy back in my collection.
