Musically diverse album with solid songcraft

This album is certainly Suzanne Vega's edgiest, with alternative rock and electronic/industrial influences, especially on the track Blood Makes Noise. Vega displays intensity on this album, and some of the songs are really not suited to her somewhat thin voice, leading her to change her singing style in some places to more of a passionate speaking tone. All of the songs on this album are lyrically solid, and the most memorable melody is perhaps in the song In Liverpool. This album is definitely a rhythm-oriented album, with the pace of the rhythms grabbing you and bringing you along on Vega's musical journey. A partial departure from Vega's prior pop/rock/folk style, this album is inventive and mature, reflecting Vega's feelings and social concerns at the time. For those who appreciate Vega's artistry this is a great album, although it may disappoint those who just like folk-oriented music.
