Beauty and Crime by Suzanne Vega

by Simon Email


One of my favourite musicians has at long last released a new album.
(Same timeframe as another favourite - Bjork. It's like Christmas!)

I've listened to the album twice, and am in the delicious phase I always have with her music.

The first listen everything things both strange and samey.

The second time I begin to remember the different tracks, and become drawn in.

Subsequent listenings will embed the music in my brain and I will be addicted, as I am to all her other music.

A strong memory - walking around Wivenhoe in Essex listening to 99.9 degrees fahrenheit on my walkman. My personal life a mess, but beautiful surroundings and the feeling of becoming addicted to the music.
