I recently bought this album because I really like the song Marlene On The Wall. I've also enjoyed some of Suzanne's other songs such as Tom's Diner and Luca. Seeing the five star reviews on here and the fact that it is at such a cheap price I purchased a copy.
The CD arrived and I put it into my hi-fi expecting a classic. First thing I noticed was how bad the album sounds, very shrill and tinny, not a great recording at all. Never mind, the important thing is the quality of songs on offer. Hmmmm, first couple of tracks have me bored, then Marlene On The Wall, that's better. Unfortunately after that the other tracks just blend into one another, her voice sounds the same, the melody is almost the same, the guitar is almost the same, the album could be one long track. I'm bored of it already, I've give it a few goes, it's just lifeless.
