MUSIC REVIEWS

Suzanne Vega-Nine Objects of Desire (A&M)

Light years from her folk breakthrough Solitude Standing, Vega's latest album continues the musical adventurousness she has been toying with since meeting producer (and now, husband) Mitch Easter and the fluke popularity of the hip-hop remix of her a capella "Tom's Diner."

Lyrically, Vega has always had the touch, but musically Nine Degrees of Desire touches on all the bases. The love song "Caramel" features a seductive swaying bossa nova beat, while the eerie tribute to lost children, "Headshots" throbs with muted pain. She also experiments with industrial crunch and distorted vocals on "Birthday (Love Made Real)." Vega is a songwriter on top of her game.  (11/96)
