99.9 F°

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
While 99.9 F° is not the techno album that Suzanne Vega was rumored to be making, it does offer a significant departure from her previous contemporary folk albums. Vega uses more synthesizers and drum machines, often evoking a bizarre carnivalesque atmosphere on the album. Still, 99.9 F° is a folk album at heart; every song is steeped in traditional song form, and Vega's writing is strong. Fans of Vega's previous work might be taken aback, but those willing to listen to the album will find that she has produced one of her strongest yet.

    a kick in the pants

    After snoozing through 'Solitude Standing' and 'Days of Open Hand', it was great to get this sonic kick in the pants from Suzanne Vega, of all people. Mitchell Froom's production is the reason. With his ''clanks'' and ''clunks'', he may have invented industrial folk. His noises perfectly match the mood of each song, most strikingly on ''Blood Makes Noise'', ''In Liverpool'', ''Fat Man & Dancing Girl'', and ''Bad Wisdom''. Plus, there are attempts to placate her hardcore folkie fans; ''Blood Sings'' and ''Song of Sand''. A lot of people hated this album because of the sound; they probably expected the usual calm and pretty guitar songs. But this cd held my attention to the point that it was in my player consistently for months. So, grab some headphones and take a chance on this album. You'll be glad you did.
