Suzanne Vega took a six-year break from recording before returning with her Blue Note Records debut, BEAUTY AND CRIME. Despite her new label's storied history as a jazz label, Vega's comeback album has even fewer jazz elements than her new label-mate Norah Jones. BEAUTY AND CRIME is a richly detailed, modern-sounding alternative rock record that touches on all previous elements of Vega's career, from the crisp folk-rock of her first two albums to the electronic sheen of 99.9 DEGREES and the orchestral delicacy of DAYS OF OPEN HAND. Lyrically, the album is a love note to Vega's New York City roots, blending the autobiographical ruminations of "Ludlow Street" with imaginative explorations such as the romantic "Frank and Ava."
