Editorial Reviews

Susanna Hoffs- singer/songwriter/musician and founding member of the Bangles-returns with a new solo album, Someday. Produced and orchestrated by the revered Mitchell Froom, it s an intensely personal song cycle that doubles as a musical love letter to the music of the 1960s, which has always been my reference point for everything, says Susanna.

How often can you say an album exceeds your expectations? I wasn't sure what to expect because Susanna Hoffs issues solo albums infrequently, preferring to engage in collaborative efforts with the Bangles or Matthew Sweet. I must confess that the Bangles album from earlier this year, Sweetheart Of The Sun, was spotty, not on a par with their previous triumph, Doll Revolution, so when I got word that a new Susanna Hoffs album had just landed I didn't know what to think.

What I appreciate most is that Susanna has chosen the course of making music relevant to where she is in life. You and I could namecheck any number of enduring artists whose business instincts have dictated that they remain frozen in time, perpetually writing lyrics tailored to a post-pubescent audience, slowly becoming more and more embarrassing over time. Other artists might venture into more articulate, grown up lyrics, those which go beyond five minutes of courtship rituals, but musically they remain trapped in a time warp of audience expectations.

In contrast, "Someday" is as refreshing as the rain depicted on the cover of this album.

The material is uniformly strong. The album may be 31:00 in length, but I am grateful that Susanna has bucked the trend that started with the CD era, that of piling on songs which compromise the overall quality of the finished product. There is no law that says an album must contain fifteen songs or sustain a duration of fifty minutes.

Arrangements, production and performances are this album's secret weapon, giving these songs a timeless sound.

Finally an album I want to listen to over and over again, without any objections from my teenagers, who love it as much as I do. I've always been a fan of Susanna Hoffs, in all of her incarnations, but with this album she emerges as a full-blown solo artist with a capital A. The songs all seem deeply personal, yet are decidedly universal. The song ALWAYS ENOUGH moved me to tears, while the cheery sounding PICTURE ME is my 18 year old daughter's new anthem, because it describes her on-again, off-again relationship to a T. Mitchell Froom's lush production never overpowers the "main event" which is Susanna's sweet, plaintive sounding voice. This is an album that communicates to the listener all of the moods and seasons of living. It's raw, vulnerable and relatable. I highly recommend it.

This latest solo effort by Susanna Hoffs is an album I've been waiting more than 20 years for. Not only is it the finest showcase -- to date -- for her impeccable voice, but it's also a pretty wonderful wink and nod to days gone by ... '60s pop has never sounded so good!

What Susanna has done with Someday is present an honest-to-goodness song cycle, rather than a mere collection of tunes. It's a 10-song ride that you won't want to get off of. That, alone, is a dying art! And the fabulous production rendered by Mitchell Froom evidences why producers have, for so long, been critical to the making of great records. At their best, they bring everything together in a cohesive fashion for an artist. He's done that extraordinarily well here.

Susanna has one of my all-time favorite voices. It's wonderful to see it put to such a great use. I'm already excited to hear what comes next for her.

I don't take the time to write a lot of reviews, but think that 'Someday' is worthy of a listen from anyone whose interest is even remotely piqued by a Susanna Hoffs solo project. Let me tell you why: This album is full of catchy melodies that you will want to listen to over and over - some bright and upbeat (Picture Me, One Day), some pretty and melancholy (Always Enough, Raining). From personal experience, it is a great soundtrack for a summer dinner party. The collaboration of Hoffs, songwriting partner Andrew Brassel, and producer Mitchell Froom has created a sound that fans of Susanna (and the Bangles) will relate to and love, but that will also appeal to new listeners (those who may like the folk-pop style of Colbie Caillat and Jason Mraz, or the alternative-pop music of The Beautiful South). Susanna's love of 60's music still comes through in this latest work, but the overall feel of the record is very contemporary and new. The songs will evoke images that take you from Paris in the Spring, to a Florida beach in the Summer, and then California in the Fall. You need to hear it to believe it!

That old show biz adage applies here. Back in the day, albums were only about ten songs and 30-40 minutes long because that was all that could be squeezed onto two vinyl sides. With the advent of the CD, it was possible to put a lot more material on a single album. By modern standards, this album is very short -- and that's really my only criticism of it. As good as the material here is, I would have liked more of it.

In recent years, Susanna Hoffs has worked with Matthew Sweet on a couple of albums of covers of pop and rock songs from the late 1960s and early 1970s, Under The Covers, Vol. 1 and Under The Covers: Vol. 2. The original songs on this album feel like they could have come from the same time frame, say three or four years either side of 1969. There are echoes of Top 40 pop influences here; if you listen to "Picture Me" and don't think of Burt Bacharach, you aren't listening hard enough!

Susanna collaborated on the songwriting with Andrew Brassell on most of the songs, and they did a fine job. Mitchell Froom's production and orchestration provides a beautiful canvas from which Susanna's vocals shine. While her previous solo albums have featured lush string arrangements, the addition of a horn section adds some new punch. From the first words of "November Sun" to the last notes of "True," it's a short but sweet ride that you shouldn't miss.
