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

For nearly two decades, Tracy Chapman has been a truly individual voice on the modern musical landscape, charting and artistic path that owes nothing to trend and fashion, and everything to personal spirit, intelligence, and integrity. An eloquent teller of stories that are at once deeply intimate and yet speak to universal human concerns and a wider social conscience, Chapman has created a body of work that has been as consistently compelling as it is honest and uncompromising.

Amazon.co.uk

Tracy Chapman's seventh studio album, Where You Live, is not only a reflection of the issues concerning her own domicile but of the wider tribalist rancourings--class, race, religion and the economic divide--which fracture human accord. She's no ribbons and bows girl. Her spiritual (at least in a humanist sense) folk muse has often appeared hostile to window-dressing and affection (didn't Boyzone really miss the point by a mile with "Baby Can I Hold You"?) and the naked but steely-resolved material on "Where I Live" requires a commitment from the listener to eek out the essence.

There's the terrifying personal assault tale of "3000 Miles" ("Soft skin against the cold concrete...i'll die here soon if i don't leave") and on a less individual footing the disgusted, martial-booted "America", like some nightmarish resurrection of Bob Dylan's "115th Dream" for the neo-conservative generation. Equally blessed are "Change" (surely Chapman's most mainstream-friendly venture since "Fast Car") and the ruefully blue "Don't Dwell", a timid unsentimental shiver of a warmer past. --Kevin Maidment

Format: Audio CD
This is my most anticipated album of the year, and it is quiet simply amazing - their isn't much of a change but when she's been making near flawless albums over the past decade their really is no need for her too!

The Lyrics - Thought-provoking, loving and yes at times realistically depressing!

The Voice - Fantastic as usual, at times haunting - argubly the most unique voice of today!

The Music - More of the brilliant same really, simple strings and beats; its all about the voice raelly so the music tends to take a back seat when you listen through the album but thats not to say it isn't great!

Best Songs - Change, Talk To You, 3000 miles, Don't Dwell, Never Yours, Loves Proof, America, Taken and Be And Be Not Affraid (yet another brilliant closing track!) - I know though I will fall for every track here like I have for all Tracy's songs!

Tracy really has on this her 7th album touched upon the brilliance that her first album is known for, it deserves to be heard - 10/10!

This album is so smooth and cultured and I think is one of Tracy's best for years. Effortless vocals, calming tunes and poetic lyrics harking back to her debut. 'Talk To You' is my stand-out track of the moment and just how poignant and true is 'America'?

I bought this album around five years ago, listened to it once and then filed it away. Recently, I've rediscovered it and had it on the stereo quite a times. It's a real shame that I'd given "Where You Live" such little attention at the time, because further exploration and review of it reveals it to be very good indeed and the kind of album you really need to give at least two or three plays to start to appreciate. In fact, the whole album requires a little effort on the listener's part to stay with Tracy, as this isn't exactly a commercial release. There are many downbeat, lyrically tough songs and little to lift the spirits - so if you need cheering up, Tracy's seventh studio album probably isn't the best record to listen to.

Don't let that put you off, though, as there are some truly fine compositions on "Where You Live". Album opener "Change" is a lovely track and is also the closest thing that this album has to a potential hit. "Talk To You"is probably my favourite song on the whole collection, a wonderfully heartbreaking tale of a relationship on the cusp of crumbling. "3,000 Miles" is deliberately bleak, both lyrically and musically, and would be very good if it wasn't so repetitive. "Don't Dwell" is a beautifully sombre, magnificently delivered, jazzy piece of brilliance, "America" is a defiant, angry song with a sparse, but powerful, beat which tackles her country's violent history of inequality and imperialism and "Love's Proof" is a tender, heartfelt message to the object of their desire, for them to forget yearning after somebody they can't have and pay attention to the person who is there, offering love.

The greatest strength of this album is Tracy's voice, sublimely dignified, beautiful and graceful.

This albums most haunting and thought provoking lyrics are in 3,000 miles which I believe is the best composition on this album. All tracks have a great meaning that you can take to heart and adapt to suit your mood. I'm glad to have invested in this album and recommend it to other Tracy Chapman 'fans'.

I have recently bought this and a couple of other Tracy Chapman CD's. None of them will load to my, relatively new, PC. The disk just isn't readable on it. This is teh only artist I have this issue with, all my other CD's load up just fine. I have managed to get round the problem by copying the CD using and older PC and the copy loads up just fine. Beware, Tracy's CD's don't load on some device drives.

Apart from that the music is great.

I normally listnened to dance and rap music as I am 15 but I've always loved Sheryl Crow and Tom Petty etc so one day my pal wanted me to download Fast Car coz he sed its great so I did then I found myself listening to Talkin' bout a revolution, Why, For my lover, Give me one reason, Subcity (her best of all time song), Telling stories, House of the rising sun and Heavens here on Earth. I then got the albums instead of downloading, I got 'New beginning', 'Collection' and then 'Where you live'
This is the best album of hers I have I plan on getting 'Telling stories' and 'Let it Rain' coz of good reviews but now I'm going to talk about this album...
To begin, Here are the best songs in order
1. Before Easter: This song has a great drum mix and lyrics are really good, the best on the CD.
2. Taken: This is the only slow song I count as one of the best on this album the story is great and the chorus is great to sing along to. HER BEST SLOW SONG EVER!!!
3. America: This has the best lyrics on the album and has a good guitar sound in between verses.
4. Change: Has the second best lyrics on the album and again a great guitar sound but not quite as good as America.
The rest of the songs are good, theres not a bad song on it but the songs above definately stand out. Before Easter is the 2nd best Chapman song ever! Only Subcity beats it.
I strongly advise anyone to get this album it stunning!!!
