Editors’ Notes

Tracy Chapman first emerged at the end of the ‘80s with a self-titled album that presented her as an obvious descendant of the socially conscious singer/songwriters of the ‘60s. While her immediate success with “Fast Car” and “Talkin’ Bout A Revolution” seemed to position her as an international star, the ensuing albums and years have been more artistically than commercially rewarding (the exception being her 1996 hit “Give Me One Reason”). Produced by Chapman and Tchad Blake, Where You Live pulls no grand surprises, but features several masterful songs presented in quiet, spare spaces that emphasize Chapman’s great intimacy. “Change” begins things with her trademark quaver, a soulful tremble in her voice that makes the future sound like a fragile promise destined to be broken. “3,000 Miles” recounts modern horror stories, while admitting Chapman’s own distance from the unpleasant realities. “Going Back” features Chapman and Joe Gore’s keyboards with Mitchell Froom’s celeste to create a muted, carnival-esque mood piece. These are quiet moments worth contemplating.

Customer Reviews

Spiritual and Reflective

I recently was hospitalized with symptoms of a mild heart attack this week at 36 yrs of age. I haven't heard Tracy Chapman in years but seeing her music video on television and then downloading/listening to the song "Change" has helped me in reflecting on recent events and the goodness and value that life itself has for us that we often take for granted until something comes into our life to shake us up. It has been many many years since "A Fast Car" but Tracy's authentic voice remains and even if you don't buy the whole album I am certain you will find many tracks to your liking.

Experience Where you Live by Tracy Chapman

Compared to Tracy Chapman’s other efforts I find Where you Live to be among her best work. The impassioned songwriting on Where you Live carried along on Tracy’s soulful voice makes this album an outstanding addition to your collection. I could see this album bring her more Grammy nominations. Where you Live is Chapman’s first release in three years. The wait was far too long for me but the end product was worth it. Not only is this album arguably Chapman’s best work it is also one of the best albums of 2005. I would recommend experiencing Where you Live for yourself.

One of Her Best

This album takes a few listens to fully appreciate, but ultimately it is one of Chapman's best. Lyrically--as usual--she doesn't disappoint: many of the songs, like "3,000 Miles" and "Never Yours," cut to the heart with their honesty and stark realism. Almost without exception this is a soft, thoughtful album (the only foot stomping track is "America," one of the more accessible but lesser songs) but that doesn't mean it feels incomplete. This is a fully satisfying, mature album. If you are a Chapman fan you'll certainly want this album; for those just beginning to explore this remarkable singer/songwriter, this is one of her best efforts--and certainly a standout among her recent releases.

Biography

Born: March 30, 1964 in Cleveland, OH

Genre: Singer/Songwriter

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Tracy Chapman helped restore singer/songwriters to the spotlight in the '80s. The multi-platinum success of Chapman's eponymous 1988 debut was unexpected, and it had lasting impact. Although Chapman was working from the same confessional singer/songwriter foundation that had been popularized in the '70s, her songs were fresh and powerful, driven by simple melodies and affecting lyrics. At the time of her first album, there were only a handful of artists performing such a style successfully, and her...
