This is going to be a short review, because unfortunately there's not much to say. The "Close Up" series is just intimate performances of Suzanne Vega's previous work. Which would be fine if the original versions weren't already so intimate. Her voice hasn't changed in like, 25 years either. So you're not going to get more weathered variations to the notes. This doesn't add or take anything away from her catalog. It's just like having a shuffle option on all her other records. If you want to go with an intimate performance, try to track down Suzanne Vega : Sessions at West 54th. It's an excellent EP with a nice audience vibe.
