Songs in Red and Grey - AM Records 2001
The production of this album is slightly softer than ""99.9 F" and "Nine Objects of Desire", and probably less daring. The record has been criticised for being overproduced; personaly I think her production suits her songs brilliantly. And songs are mostly great and like always, Suzanne Vega's lyrics are melodic and thought-provoking. Only few songs are immediately catchy and it may take a few listens to get into many of them.
My first favourites were the up-beat songs "I'll Never Be Your Maggie May". "Last Year's Troubles" (great lyrics on that one too!) and "If I Were a Weapon". Among the slower and more silent songs "Soap and Water" and "St Claire" are really great. All in all an album you can enjoy and listen to many times!
