Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2008-01-09By recording Chicago’s “If You Leave Me Now,” Suzy Bogguss has firmly planted herself in the adult contemporary genre. Sweet Danger, the ex-country singer’s most recent album, features a smooth jazz backdrop for Bogguss’s agreeable vocals. Most songs are midtempo, but “Right Back into the Feeling” is a bluesy, uptempo tune. “In Heaven” is called the “emotional centerpiece of the album” and tells the story of a wife talking to her dead husband in heaven about her new love (think “Butterfly Kisses”). “Chain Lover” and “No Good Way to Go,” a song about leaving one’s lover, feel like thematic misfits on the honeyed album, although “Chain Lover” offers a great metaphor: “I’m a chain lover, lightin’ up another before I put the other one out.” --MLG
