Suzanne Vega – 99.9 F° (1992)

FrontCover1.jpg99.9F° (Ninety-Nine Point Nine Fahrenheit Degrees) is the fourth album by American singer and songwriter Suzanne Vega. Released in 1992, the album marked a significant departure for Vega, as she embraced a more electronic, experimental sound. It peaked at No. 86 on Billboard magazine’s album chart and was Vega’s fourth Top 20 album in the U.K. The single “Blood Makes Noise” reached No.1 on the Billboard Modern Rock chart.

The album was certified gold (500,000 copies sold) by the RIAA in October 1997. It was certified silver in the UK (60,000 copies sold) by the BPI in March 1993.

99.9F° was the first of two of Vega’s albums to be produced by Mitchell Froom, whom she later married. (by wikipedia)

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. (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)
