Product Description

On her long-awaited release, Poe sets out on a musical path she calls "a journey towards intimacy." This album is powerful, heartfelt and truly original with tracks including "Walk the Walk," "House of Leaves," "Terrible Thought," "Hey Pretty," "If You Were Here" and more. [Note: This product is an authorized CD-R and is manufactured on demand]

Give Poe credit for overcoming obstacles and delivering a second album as ambitious and loaded as Haunted. Extending over 15 wildly diverse tracks linked together by ambient interludes and spooky tape splices of old cassette recordings featuring the singer's late father, documentary filmmaker Tad Danielewski, the album shows the songstress moving effortlessly through ethereal folk-hop ("Haunted"), Shania Twain-style country rock ("Walk the Walk"), and flamenco-infused balladry ("Spanish Doll"). The only constant through the turbulence--emotional and otherwise--remains her desperately romantic voice and its desire to bid her father a proper farewell at every turn. --Jaan Uhelszki

We find Poe on her second album brazen and boundlessly inspired, flexing her creative range with more quality ideas than can possibly be crammed into seventeen songs and a half-dozen genres.
I read an interview on how this amazing disc came about. Finding herself at a loose end creatively after her first album, Poe describes an unsettling dream where her late father mysteriously urges her to "find his voice". Some time later she unearthed a forgotten box of family tapes dating from early childhood, featuring a revelatory array of personal voice recordings by none other than her often remote and complex Dad. Confronting the material wasn't easy at first. Then "suddenly I had 700 songs I needed to write, all of them at my fingertips".
Talk of a concept album alarmed her backers, who suggested she "capitalize on her fan base" instead. Undaunted, Poe withdrew to a private studio and cozied up with her ProTools digital audio workstation, throwing 12-16 hours a day into the quintessential labor of love. Excluding all but an inner circle of accomplices, emerging two years and fifteen filled hard drives later with this incandescent work.
And these songs!! Opulent and gripping, cohesive yet intricate, gloriously melodic, expansive, diverse. Up volume and sit back. Wade that first chilling intro into the heady rush of "Haunted" and I guarantee your pulse and breathing will have noticeably increased. Yes, the headlining "Hey Pretty" is a stunner, but I soon found it more of a bonus track alongside even more precocious siblings, "Control", "Terrible Thought", "Walk The Walk", "Wild", "5½ Minute Hallway"...on down the track list.. Each a consummate short story of it's own, with barely a mediocre moment anywhere.

I had the opportunity to see Poe (formerly known as Ann Danielewski) ...this past November 12. Something of an odd venue, except that this was a joint outing in accompaniment with her brother, the author Mark Danielewski, whose "House of Leaves" was recently published to some critical acclaim. She was to sing a number of songs from her new CD, "Haunted", but unfortunately I could only stick around for a couple of them.
I do like this album, but I wonder if it is really something that would appeal to the casual music fan. This isn't something that you can just chunk into your CD player and let rip. It's a very complex, layered, intense work, and deeply personal as well. In its broadest outlines, it's an attempt by Poe to come to grips with her late father, who died in 1993, two years before her debut release with her "Hello" album. (I may be a little off with this chronology.) That particular outing featured a lyric that said "Fathers are black holes that suck up the light"; that might give you a hint of her family dynamic.
Recently, while going through her father's stored belongings, she came across several cassette recordings of conversations/monologues that he had recorded years ago, and listening to this spectral voice from beyond the grave inspired "Haunted". Poe has incorporated numerous selections from these tapes into the new songs, weaving them in as commentaries, prologues, segues. In a sense, she is reaching out to her father one last time and trying to understanding? A reconciliation? A truce?
At the same time, "Haunted" is meant to be a kind of reflection of "House of Leaves" (her song "5 1/2 Minute Hallway" is directly inspired by a passage in her brother's work).

I have had this CD for a couple weeks now and it hasn't left my CD player since I brought it home. It is so amazing and I can really tell POE has matured since her debut album, Hello. My favorite track on Haunted is 'Wild'. The track makes a transition in the middle from serious rock to a clubby dance song. In 'If You Were Here' POE expresses how much she misses her father and feels he would be proud of his children, Annie Danielewski aka POE, and her brother, Mark Z. Danielewski. 'Haunted' is very much intertwined with her brother's book, "House of Leaves." POE's album and Mark's novel are two individual creative responses to the same events. Her brother says of the album, "It's not a soundtrack for the book. It's a parallax view of the same history." POE says," it's the album I've wanted to make for as long as I can remember. Finally, I had the resources I needed and the freedom to focus on nothing else but the task at hand." Once given the limitless space she needed POE created a masterpiece - an album that is sure to be among my all-time favorites.

I am not a rabid fan of Poe... but this album, HAUNTED, is out to make me one! Poe's previous effort, HELLO, was a very pleasant affair indeed: hip-hop rhythms, sampling, her velvety vocals, that GREAT song that launched her career (read: "Angry Johnny"), but it dragged in places and could become tedious at times despite the promise within those first songs. Poe returns with anything but what could be called a sophomore-slump in HAUNTED, a brilliant concept piece about the death of her father, her brother Mark Z. Danielowski's novel, HOUSE OF LEAVES, and her own subconcious. The songs themselves, as the title of this review states, are worth an excellent rating. So rarely are tracks as diverse as the thumping, grooving, and thouroughly melodic "Haunted," and the latin-flavored ballad "Spanish Doll" found on the same album by an individual artist. And that is without mentioning the trippy, hyper "Not A Virgin," the smooth sinistry of "Hey Pretty," the luscious electronica feast of "Wild," and the pounding and relentless power of "Control." But as wonderful as these songs are individually, when heard in succession of one-another, the listener is confronted head-on by Poe's huge-with-a-capital-H-vision, without feeling overwhelmed or bombarded. This feat, not even entirely conquered by rock genius' Radiohead on their recent KID A, displays just the depth of artistry that Poe embodies. It takes a delicate hand and an open mind to create an album so obviously dear to one's heart as this, and yet not to create a forced message and risk losing an audience's imagination. A large part of what helps her production and songs work hand-in-hand is the versatility of Poe's voice.Read more ›
