Tracy Chapman Where You Live (Elektra) There are a few ways people can sedate themselves, and most involve a trip to the chemist. Putting Where You Live into the stereo, however, may induce a nap attack. Tracy Chapman is back, and thankfully her voice hasn't changed one bit. Like a good wine, it's been ageing well, and she still sings with the air of sadness and luminosity that has made her voice one of the most recognisable in the music industry. However, with this album, there's no Fast Car velocity. Instead, you'd be fairly accurate in equating the pace of this with following a funeral procession - one listen to Be and Be Not Afraid is a good indicator. Listening to this album could almost make you mourn for Chapman's brighter achievements, namely Revolution. And while it's not always easy for an artist to live up to their previous hits and not fair to slate them for it, it's a disappointment that Chapman hasn't recreated that 'driving with the top down' kind of feeling on this album. America is the only effort to relive this kind of moment, but everything else has a numbingly tiring effect. Change has a hint of old Chapman, which is a small relief, and Talk to You is one of the album's finer tunes. Overall, however, it's likely people may wake from their Where You Live nap and reach for her eponymous first.
