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.

Susanna Hoffs has nothing to prove. She continues to be in a very successful group, collaborated with Matthew Sweet on a couple of fantastic "cover" CD's, been in, and had songs in, movies, and has had a nice, if unnoticed, solo career. So when I received my copy of her latest solo CD Someday, I listened with pure anticipation, but with a smidge of trepidation.

I listened to the entire CD three times. The first time was to get the overall feel of the CD. The second time to catch some of the lyrics, and the third time....AH HA!!!!!!!! Yes, the third time listening gave me my "AH HA" moment that I always hope to get when listening to any piece of music. This CD does not sound like anything else Susanna Hoffs has ever recorded. For the most part, this collection of songs is very understated, organic sounding and very poignant. To me, this is her "Joni Mitchell" type CD where she shows her chops as a true singer/songwriter. This time, her collaborator on most songs is Andrew Brassell, a Nashville musician. This may explain the laid back, understated feel of the CD. Let's start with that voice. Hoffs has one of the most recognizable voices in pop music. After all these years, it is still silky smooth. Yes, she does strain a bit when it comes to certain notes but, while for others it becomes a distraction, for her, the raspiness sounds almost sultry which fits in perfectly with the feel of the songs.

The production of the songs is a bit lightweight. There is orchestration on most of this CD which could lead some listeners to think that most songs sound alike. There is never a point where Hoffs tries to become a part of her past. Never a pounding drumbeat to kick a song into motion.
