5.0 out of 5 stars Along with Cyndi Lauper, finest debut of the 1980s, 26 Mar. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Suzanne Vega (Audio CD)
This album is so thought-provoking, sensitive and beautifully instrumented that it would be a crime not to like it. Suzanne Vega emerged as a folk rock singer-songwriter/guitarist in the style of the legendary Joni Mitchell. But this wonderful entirely self-written collection sets her apart. From the spoken opener "Cracking" to the funky "Neighborhood Girls", there is always something to keep you enthralled. The most commercial moment is undoubtedly the album's biggest hit, the classic "Marlene On The Wall" - a chart hit back in 1986. But there is much more here. The cellos serve up a treat on "Undertow", while acoustic works wonders on "Small Blue Thing". The standout is the beautiful ballad "The Queen And The Soldier", still one of her finest tracks 17 years after this album's initial release. A record to treasure.
