Suzanne Vega: Solitude Standing (A&M)

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 2 May 1987

SUZANNE VEGA's first album I found promising but irritating: the Joni/Rickie Lee persona presented with a knowing, sickly coyness. As a harbinger of the singer-songwriter revival/revolution it seemed pretty insipid.

Total word count of piece: 218
