If you like good music, you won't regret buying this album... it's good to see that there are still artists out there who make quality music!

Her voice is more and more amazingly moving and the music perfectly arranged.

Basically this is a re-issue of "Cake and Pie," with a different cover and a slightly different track selection. The songs from "Cake and Pie" that appear on this album are the same versions, but they do sound slightly remixed, because it seems that Lisa Loeb's voice blends a little better with the music this time around. The production on all the songs is terrific.
There are three EXCELLENT new songs on this CD: "What Am I Supposed To Say" is terrific and has an atmospheric energy to it! (It would make a great single.) "Did That" is very cool and smart, and kind of edgy for Lisa Loeb. The other new song "Take Me Back" is a song about a deteriorating friendship, a situation I think most listeners can relate to. (By the way, the "hidden" track is an acoustic version of "What Am I Supposed To Say.") Other standout tracks on this CD are "Someone You Should Know," "You Don't Know Me" and "Everyday."
While this CD is not an out-and-out replacement CD for "Cake and Pie," it is very good and I recommend it. (This CD does not include "Kick Start," "We Could Still Belong Together" or "She's Falling Apart," which are all excellent songs from Lisa Loeb's previous CD.)
Pick this one up if you enjoy folk music, like Tracy Chapman and Jewel. Lisa Loeb is a blossoming artist...and she just keeps getting better and better.

Lisa Loeb returns to the music scene after the commercial disappointment "Cake AND Pie". I use the word "return" lightly because, "Hello Lisa" is a reissue of "Cake and Pie" with several modifications made to the track list. There are now some new songs thrown in together with most of the C&P songs.
This is not a bad thing. All the songs compliment each other pefectly, and the new songs are a delight to the ear. The psychadelic modern sound of "Did That" contrasts with the retro nostalgia evoked in "Take Me Back" - but at the same time both songs succeed in instilling emotions in the listener. The same applies for every song on the new album.
"Underdog" displays an admirable perseverance of an unrequited love; while "Someone You Should Know" demonstrates Lisa's songwriting skills once more as she preaches a message long forgotten - know who you are and be comfortable with it.
All the songs on "Hello Lisa" are worthy of praise, but the one song that stands out is "Take Me Back" - a forlorn, mellow song about a gradual deterioration of a once tight friendship. Stunningly beautiful, it reminds us of all the friends that have come and gone in our lives - even the ones we thought would stay with us forever.
"Hello Lisa" is a remarkable effort; it is a shame that Lisa does not get the credit or recognition she deserves in the industry.
Britney should take a hint or two from Miss Loeb ... maybe then radio might be a little more tolerable.

I purchased "Hello Lisa" by singer/songwriter Lisa Loeb last Friday. I have her three other albums ("Tails", "Firecracker", and "Cake AND Pie"), so I thought I'd pick this one up. I'm a big fan of Lisa, and her band, Nine Stories. There is some real talent here.
"Hello Lisa" is mostly made up of songs from her February release "Cake AND Pie". She was signed with A&M Records, but she claims that they were not promoting the album, so she switched to Artemis Records. Artemis is a smaller, more artist-oriented label.
Why "Hello Lisa" you ask? Lisa is a long time fan of Hello Kitty, so she draped the disc and booklet with pictures of Hello Kitty, and titled the album "Hello Lisa". I personally think the cover of the album is very unique! It shows Hello Kitty holding the "Cake AND Pie" CD. One thing though, this cover shows Lisa with cat ears and a hair bow, just like Little Miss Kitty! Lisa thought of this concept, as noted in the CD. I think it's clever because the album is mostly made up of songs from "Cake AND Pie", so it's a nice little blend of both CDs.
The playlist is as follows:
(* indicates a new song)
1. Did That*
2. Underdog
3. You Don't Know Me
4. Drops Me Down
5. The Way It Really Is
6. Bring Me Up
7. What Am I Supposed to Say?*
8. Everyday
9. Someone You Should Know
10. Payback
11. Take Me Back*
12. (Hidden Track) - Acoustic version of "What Am I Supposed to Say?"*
1. "Did That" (Lisa Loeb) -
I like this song. It's really catchy. The lyrics in this song are very obscure, and that is one of the reasons why I love Lisa, her songs are pensive, and make you think.
2. "Underdog" (Music by Lisa Loeb & Dweezil Zappa, Lyrics by Lisa Loeb) -
I can really relate to this song.

Although Amazon is suggesting that you purchase both Cake and Pie and Hello Lisa for a bargain, be well advised that Hello Lisa IS the Cake and Pie album with three extra tracks.
Loeb's follow up to Firecracker finds her associating with Dweezil Zappa, son of the late musical genuis, who is content with contributing guitar licks, hooks and solos that actually compliment the music rather than draw attention away from it. Zappa adds a nice hint of edge to Loeb's folk inspired pop which culminates in a CD that is as fresh and appreciated as a warm summer day compared to what is infesting pop radio these days. You won't find Loeb on the radio in too many places and that's exactly what's wrong with radio today. Her songwriting in general is personal, human and easy to relate to without resorting to insulting the listeners intelligence.
The 12 tracks on Hello Lisa (one hidden) ebb and flow like a well designed set list, weaving through various emotions and sentiments that may at first not make much of an impression - but will leave you craving repeat performances until you are completely familiar with every nook and cranny of the CD.
Loeb's naked, up close and personal trademark voice is sweet and biting at the same time, like the cute unassuming girl in school who could kill you with a look or a word and not even know she did it. It's not the way she sings, it's what she sings that provide her with the power of her convictions. Each track is filled with vocal hooks that will haunt you (in a good way!) even when the CD isn't playing. Now that's a performance.
Zappa's guitar work is edgy, but toned down enough in production to provide a foundation without overpowering the message, while the other musicians keep the music real.
