A slight sense of anti-climax
on 4 June 2014
Having known Suzanne Vega's music since the 1980's, I was a great fan of the early albums, the original untitled one and then "Solitude Standing". After buying a few more albums in the early 90's I had stopped thinking too much about Suzanne Vega's music. A bit of research convinced me that this album represented a return to form.
By most standards this album would be quite a reasonable listen. There are two or three striking tracks, but the overall impression is "Heard something similar before from Suzanne Vega". It is not that this is a bad album. It is just that it does not measure up to the quality and innovation of the early work. Sometimes it would be better to preserve fond memories, and move on.
