The subconscious set to music
J. Thomas | Ohio | 08/28/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an extremely deep and sophisticated work by Suzanne Vega. Virtually all of the songs, however, seem to relate to one thing in particular: the subconscious (dreams, fantasies, fears, a desire to feel, and memory). The abstract and unreal passages led me to reach this conclusion, along with the fact that the opening track, which sets the tone, is "Tired of Sleeping." I have come to love Days... because of understanding it this way. I believe that Salvador Dali would have absolutely loved it.

My personal favorites are "Tired of Sleeping," "Big Space," "Rusted Pipe," "Predictions," and, especially, "Pilgrimage," all of which deal with abstract emotional and psychological journeys. "Predictions" seems to support the expression that "History repeats itself" by beginning: "Let's tell the future, Let's see how it's been done..." I love the universal perspective of this. Mike Visceglia's base-playing on "Pilgrimage" is other-worldly and mysterious. It seems like the soundtrack for an archaeological documentary on National Geographic or the History International channel--a program where they are uncovering ancient secrets. Vega is unapologetically inscrutable on this follow-up to her huge hit record Solitude Standing."
I'm surprised how much it's grown on me

"I'm a big SV fan; I own all her albums and look forward to new ones. I have to say, that when I first listened to this album, I was a little dissappointed - especially compared to her first two. But, now with the innovation of iPod shuffle, I listen to her more. Some of the tracks on this album, especially Tired of Sleeping and Those WHole Girls, have really become my favorites. I was surprised when I looked back and they were from this album. I recently listened to the whole thing and it's much better than I rememberd it years ago. I guess I've grown musically, just now as fast as SV. She's ahead of my time!"
