Suzanne Vega is one of those musicians that cannot fail, even if she were musically adaptating a tomato recipe book.

For two decades now she transformed her musical style - many called it 'folkish' at first, but that's not really the case - she has that beauty of writing ballads that sound like no ballads... lyrically strict issues that albeit hurting don't hurt but offer a different point of view. Emotional, outstanding and powerful debut. Highly recommended.
