EDITORS’ NOTES

With quiet eloquence and smoldering outrage, Tracy Chapman made protest music relevant to '80s audiences. Chapman’s heartwrenching-yet-dignified contralto can be filled with defiance (“Talkin’ Bout A Revolution”), longing ('Fast Car", “Mountains O’ Things”), or resolve (“For My Lover”). But her incredible gift as a storyteller makes this breakthrough sound just as transcendent decades later.

The forgotten brilliance

This needs to be in the most sold ITunes albums. It's a classic album and I can't believe it has taken me until now to download it. Off to buy Suzanne Vega now too - another great from the 80s

Love it

Tracy Chapman deserves 6 stars for this album. Every song has been carefully written and the words have so much meaning to them. Something for everyone on this album.

A real class album

I had forgotten how good this was. At this price, how can you go wrong? Just about every track is perfect.
