Ah, the most fascinating alto in music is back! Suzanne Vega’s album in such a long time, Songs in Red and Gray, however treads the same old musical ground. Fans of Ms Vega’s folksy, gentle songs will know what to expect here. There’s nothing remarkable, but there are some fine moments nonetheless.

Penitent is haunting and beautiful, while (I’ll Never Be) Your Maggie May gives a kick below the belt to that Rod Stewart’s song. If I Were a Weapon is a bit off as a preachy soapbox, but it’s a lovely tune nonetheless.

Really, any Ms Vega fans would probably have little to complain about Songs in Red and Gray. Her music sounds alike after a while, true, but it’s still a pretty good samey sound to my ears.
