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.

At Just over a decade since her eponymous debut album, “Nine objects of Desire” album shows that none of the interesting wordplay of that collection has gone.
Now the music has more of a sophisticated feel than the debut had, this is the influence of her now ex-husband “Mitchell Froom”.
Along with the drum work of “Jerry Marotta”, the drummer who has worked for “Robbie Robertson”, “Peter Gabriel” and "Steely Dan" in his long and varied career as a session player. His drumming against the keyboard playing of “Mr Froom” creates the perfect foil for the lyrics and vocals of “Ms Vega”.
The first thing that I noticed about this album was how “big” the sound is, every sound that matters is larger than normal.
I don’t know if that’s the way that “Mitchell Froom’s” partner in recording, one “Tchad Blake” who has also worked in past on recording sessions by “Los Lobos” and “Ron Sexsmith”, has recorded and mixed this album but the overall sound of the whole collection is excellent. The resulting recording session was mastered by another of my favourite audio wizards, one “Bob Ludwig”.
As the opening track begins “Birthday (love made real)” the passage of time that separates this album from the debut of 1985 disappears, the familiar wordplay that attracted me to the artist in first place is still there but now the music now lives up to the words. The sound of the tracks continues the feel of the previous album “99.9°F” with the same layers of percussion and keyboard sounds.

This was Suzanne Vega's second album produced by Mitchell Froom. There is a great variation in moods and styles and Froom obviously has a great skill of giving Vega's songs inventive arrangements without ruining them with over-production.

This album is a natural follow-up the very experimental album "99.9 F" which had a lot of odd sounds and rhythms. You find quite a lot of the same things here, but the overall impression is that of a softer and more refined album.

What make Suzanne Vega's albums so good is the songs and her soft voice; what makes her albums great is the perfectionism in which the songs are arranged and produced. Both elements are present on this album, which may very well turn out to be her most satisfying and enduring.

A handful of these songs would have fitted nicely into "99.9 F"; "Birthday", "Stockings", "Casual Match", "No Cheap Thrill" and "Lolita" . Among them my favourites are "Stockings", with great sensual lyrics, "No Cheap Thrill" and the almost heavy "Birthday".

On other tracks a more refined touch is apparent. "Caramel" is a latin-inspired great tune with a tasteful hornarrangement. "My favourite Plum" is another memorable song with a beautiful string arrangement. "World Before Columbus" are "Honeymoon Suite" two acoustic songs with Vega playing the guitar. I particularly like the thought-provoking lyrics of "Honeymoon Suite".

"Headshots" is another favourite.

Least appealing are the jazzy track "Tombstone" and the riff-based "Casual Match" and "Lolita"
