Hotter than 99.9 degrees
on 14 February 2000
If your image of Suzanne Vega is 'girl with guitar', then this is the album to change your mind. Its mostly intense, noisy and rhythmic from the opening scream of 'Birth day' onwards. There's a wide musical palette anchored around Mitchell Froom, her producer & husband. This CD builds and extends 99.9 degrees, and is even better. Her song lyrics are pared and pointed, with out the sheer wordiness that some of her earlier albums had. This is great stuff, and I hope she keeps going like this.
