Nine Objects of Desire is Suzanne Vega's fifth studio album, released September 10, 1996. It peaked at number 92 in the Billboard 200.

Under the guidance of producer Mitchell Froom, who produced 99.9 F° and married her shortly after that album was completed, Suzanne Vega continues to explore more textured and vaguely experimental musical territory on Nine Objects of Desire. While it is less bold on the surface than its predecessor – most notably, there are no pseudo-industrial rhythms – Nine Objects of Desire still bears all the trademarks of a Mitchell Froom production. There is cheap, garage-yard percussion scattered throughout the record, layered keyboards, and overly mannered, arty arrangements. It's not as extreme as Froom's work for Los Lobos, for instance, but it is still more self-consciously pretentious than any of Vega's albums, besides 99.9 F°. Vega's songs manage to cut through the murky production more often than not, and while the album doesn't boast her most consistent set of songs, they are on the whole stronger than the ones on her previous record. The songs on Nine Objects of Desire are more classically structured and inviting than the ones on its predecessor – it is only the production that keeps the listener at a distance. And that's ironic, since half of these songs rank among Vega's most personal work.

Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Allmusic.com

Back in the day, Suzanne Vega was a folk artist who sang about battered wives, abused children, and other modern folk music subjects. The difference between Vega and most other modern folk artists is that she could pull it off with sincerity, keeping cornball lyrics to an absolute minumum.

In late 1992, she released 99.9F, an album which would dramatically change her sound and image. The record was an incredible soundscape of tinny samples, clangy percussion, and weird instruments, and everyone I knew was knocked out by it.

A couple of weeks ago, I received her follow-up album, Nine Objects of Desire, in the mailbox, probably expecting too much from it. It sounds something like 99.9F, but not like I expected. The tinny samples have been replaced by digital keyboard effects. The clangy percussion has changed to an actual rhythm section and the occasional drum loop. The weird instruments have become traditional instruments. The music is excellent, the lyrics are pretty good. There's just one thing that bothers me: Every song on this record is played in a minor key. There's not an upbeat song here to give the record depth. It's hard to listen to because it all sounds so similar.

There are some winners here, though, that make the record a worthwhile purchase. Those being the bossa-nova/funk fusion of "Stockings," the murky groove of "Headshots," and the downright beautiful "World Before Columbus."

Honestly, I can't say a bad thing about any of these songs, but I wish there were a little more variety. Maybe next time. In the meantime, Nine Objects of Desire is still a keeper.
