It’s also been years since I’ve listened to this album and it’s been a real treat. Those first two Suzanne Vega albums are so good although this isn’t quite as good as the first in my opinion. Luka is the best track on this one.

Having given this vinyl a good clean today, I gave it a spin for the first time in 31 years and it still plays great. Quite a stripped back sound but suits Suzanne Vega's voice. Suzanne Vega had a very distinct voice which sounds almost sad in many of the songs. I saw Suzanne Vega on tour at the Cornwall Coliseum in the late eighties from memory and this album brings back memories of a memorable concert.

My favorite female record ever. A singer songwriter record, with softly spoken words about loving someone till it hurt them, with bitter sweet pain, songs about feeling solitude, about being in a violent relationship.
