Editorial Reviews

What hath Frente! wrought? Unbearably cute major-label debuts like Aurora Gory Alice by the Boston-area quintet, Letters To Cleo. Wispy- voiced singer Kay Hanley empties her high school poetry notebook over lightweight and instantly forgettable pop fluff like "Big Star" (which isn't even about the band) and "Mellie's Comin' Over." Letters to Cleo prides itself in its wimpy worldview and sophomoric naivete. For that, I prefer the Murmurs or Lisa Loeb or even (ecch!) Frente! --Jim DeRogatis

5.0 out of 5 stars My first introduction to Letters to Cleo! October 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD the day it came out, after reading a favorable review of it in the Boston Phoenix, years ago. It was produced then by a small little record company (Cherrydisk I think) and you had to write away for the lyrics. Which I had to do, considering I couldn't understand 'here and now' without them!

That aside, I've always found that this CD was one of their best. That being said, I don't think there's much from Letters to Cleo that I didn't like. The songs are fun to listen to, and I've found that even after 8 years that it's a CD that I can listen to from beginning to end with nothing short of a toe tapping good time. Melly's coming over is one of my favorite tracks, along with Step back. This CD never gets tired.

4.0 out of 5 stars really great cd September 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Unlike other people I select stars very carefully. 4/5 stars means this is a really really good cd. Here And Now is far and away the best track however the others are quite good as well and make for a very good quality cd. Overall I was extremely impressed by this cd and recommend it to all. It is one of those cds that you can repeat over and over and not get tired of. For fans of 90s rock music this is a must have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not the best Letters To Cleo July 22, 2003
By Emily
Format:Audio CD
I really like Letters To Cleo, but this was not my favourite album.
The best songs are I See, Here and Now, Come Around and Step Back.
I wanted to like it but the songs i haven't mentioned are a little dull and not as memorable as the above.
I've only had a week to get into it and i find myself skipping songs.
By this if you really like Letters To Cleo, but if you are trying them out, i suggest 'Wholesale Meats' if you want a bit of rock or 'Go' if you prefere something that sounds a little more pop/rock similar to the songs in the teen movie '10 Things I Hate About You'.
