5.0 out of 5 stars Under rated & Over looked June 30 2004
Format:Audio CD
I first heard "Round of Blues" on modern rock radio (Philadelphia's now defunct WDRE 103.9)soon after the album's release date (late 1992/early 1993.)I only heard it a few times before it was dropped from the station's playlist.
Right around this time I began my career as a DJ at clubs & weddings. I had added the songs to my list of most wanted songs to purchase.
None of the big retail chains carried this CD initially. A year or so later, the song received more airplay.
"Round of Blues" was included on the Nicolas Cage/Bridget Fonda movie soundtrack for "It Can Happen To You".
Eventually the "Fat City" CD began to appear at retail some two years after it's release.
From the first time I heard the entire CD it instantly became one of my favorites.
You'll be on an emotional rollercoaster with your journey through the tracks on this hidden gem.
On your first listen you too will be ready for a second ride as you feel Colvin's voice break on the final track "I Don't Know Why" Prepare for that second ride well in advance. Hit the repeat button right away!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Fat City" is exquisite March 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
... This is a wonderful album that strikes many emotional chords. "Monopoly" is a simple, heart-rending tale of lost love; "Set the Prairie on Fire" is one of the sexiest songs I've ever heard. I also love the complexity and mystery of "Kill the Messenger". Colvin's lyrics are so crisp: "Sometimes the beuaty of life Hits like lightning wahsing everything clear/And gthe dimmers of doubt flicker/Fade out and disappear." Hasn't everyone experienced those moments of clarity expressed so beautifully in Colvin's song? She articulates feelings the rest of us could never say so eloquently.

4.0 out of 5 stars A highly overlooked album Dec 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
For a lot of people, Shawn Colvin is famous because of "Sunny Comes Home" from her "A Few Small Repairs" album. They probably don't realize that Shawn has a couple of albums prior to her break out album. I'm not exactly a big fan of Shawn Colvin, especially after hearing "Sunny Comes Home" a few million times on the radio. I find her music a bit too mellow and polished for my tastes. Still I do like some of her music and most of it comes from her second album "Fat City". I bought the cassette version of "Fat City" back in high school (or I think I was a freshman in college) because a local radio station played a few cuts off the cd and I liked what I heard. I particularly enjoyed the opening song "Polaroids", a poignant song about reminiscing about the good ol' days. The next two tracks I am not too wild about. I just didn't care for the melodies on those two songs. "Round of Blues" as is "Climb On (Back That's Strong)" is another great song off "Fat Song" but I think I have to say that "Orion in the Sky" is by far my favorite Shawn Colvin song. While there are a few hits and misses on "Fat City", it is still a solid album. Too bad that it was overlooked by the critics and music listeners.
