Product Description

Originally Release '03 , her Debut top 10 US Album incldues the single " Lights Out and Sinking ", with 5 trax co-written by Glen Ballard.

Blessed--or is it cursed?--with a visage that's a distinctly haunting echo of her father's, Lisa Marie Presley has either spent most of her adult life assiduously avoiding a music career or engaged in Machiavellian schemes to secure one, depending on your spin source. But here it is, informed by no small amount of tabloid-ready living (three failed marriages, including two bizarre years the King's daughter spent playing Princess of Pop to Michael Jackson) and a slate of modern record-biz heavy hitters. The album's first single, "Lights Out," is a countryfied pop collaboration with Glen Ballard in which the singer's tough, bittersweet lyrics obliquely confront the daunting legacy of her father and the Memphis where her "family's buried and gone." Her husky alto isn't the only thing that recalls Sheryl Crow; the bristling textures of Andy Slater (Wallflowers) and Eric Rosse (Tori Amos) are a veritable textbook of modern-rock techniques, wed to some smart cover choices that bolster her music's moody, introspective bent. But that gloss sometimes makes Presley seem like a guest artist on her own album, making one curious to hear her in the setting where her father was so often riveting: Alone in the spotlight. They don't call it the gene pool lottery for nothing. –Jerry McCulley

The most impressive aspect of Lisa Marie Presley's debut album, "To Whom It May Concern," is that her lyrics are blatantly confessional on a scale that makes those of Courtney Love look like Kurt Cobain's widow had taken a vow of silence. From the death of her father when she was 9 years old ("I wish that I had spent just a little more time with you") to her tabloid marriages to Michael Jackson ("You're in some blind elation, a kind of delusion") to Nicholas Cage ("When I turned my back you cut my throat") Lisa Marie lays it out there for the world to see. Such emotional honesty certainly earns our respect, especially in this age of carefully packaged pop princesses and the album's cover shot makes it perfectly clear that nobody ever has to ask Lisa Marie the question, "who's your daddy?"
Unfortunately "To Whom It May Concern" is often as over produced as a Brittney Spears album (remember her?). This is someone surprising given that the album is produced by the likes of Eric Rosse (Tori Amos), Andrew Slatter (Fiona Apple) and Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette), all of whom have worked with artists who refrain from hiding the vocals behind overwhelming layers of music. The opening track, "S.O.B." is a perfect example: it starts off with Presley's semi-sultry alto vocals, and then then the band cranks it up big time. You might have to go back and listen to the song again to see if Lisa Marie said what you think she said in that song (yeah, she did). You find the same pattern on "The Road Between," "Important," etc., and you have to conclude that these guys must have thought they were covering up limitations of her voice. That might be a concern when you are doing nothing but singing songs written by someone else (classic example, Paula Abdul), but not when they are your songs.

Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the most famous rock star ever, blazes her own trail. She definitely steps in the right direction, supported on the album by very good musicians and fine back vocals. Perhaps I should quote Letterman, who said, after a performance of 'Lights Out' on his show (apr 9), that she has "a powerful voice". That is true, indeed... What a powerful voice!
To Whom It May Concern contains glimpses of the best from yesterday's and today's pop songs ; adult alternative, folk-rock, new country and gothic mesh together in a splendid aggregate that should leave you astounded in the best sense of the word. The result is, sometimes, dazzling --most of the compositions and lyrics have guts and energy (with unexpected novelty, as in 'Sinking In' and 'Gone' in particular). One of her best songs, in my opinion, is 'Savior', included only on the single-cd (in limited edition, I presume, it will become a collector's item). LMP will make big waves with the release of To Whom It May Concern, I'm sure of that. A nice album, and a nice treat for those enamored of solid rock and chunky-but-still-subtle ballads.
On this cd, she invents something, she does not replicate. Rock music of the 21st century. In fact, her debut album cannot be compared, its content is much original (even though there are the inevitable references to Sheryl Crow and Cher). The album honors the electric guitar, with shades of acoustic guitar hovering here and there. I seldom heard such beautiful guitar sounds to support a rock singstress --except, perhaps, from the likes of Penny Framstad or Mae Moore. LMP takes the scene by storm. The wild child is too wild to tame... Still, her voice is very good, sweet as well as "beefy" (she never shrieks or get abbrasive).

This album is just absolutely amazing. Hard to describe in words. Her voice is beautiful, every song on the album tells a story, a story of heartbreak, of happiness. All of which are her, her life, 100% real. To be honest, I didn't expect much from Lisa Marie (and now I see it was stupid), not many people did, because she is her fathers daughter, I was very impressed with every track on the album. Her lyrics are so powerful, and have so much meaning. 'Nobody Noticed It' is an incredible song, written for her father, with such strong lyrics "You're still lovely, You were lovely then" "You made me, I love you, and do you know, nothing has changed, now everyone they notice it, everyone notices". Also with backing vocals by her children on the track 'To Whom It May Concern'. I recommend this album to any and everyone that enjoys listening to just great music. All songs written or co-written by Lisa Marie herself, which is something you don't see now-a-days. Just go buy it, it'll be worth every cent, I guarantee.

This CD has been rumoured to be coming for many years. Was the wait worth it ? Yes, most definately.
Lisa has written the words, and collaborated with the likes of Glen Ballard on the music. The lyrics are very personal, for example in "Light's Out" she talks about seeing a "plot" in Gracelands back-yard for her, next to Elvis' grave. "Gone" is a reference to her short, stormy marriage to Nicolas Cage and "To Whom It May Concern" a scathing attack about prescription drugs that are freely handed out by doctors etc, to school / college children, a cause she camapigns heavily against. All of this sounds as if it could be a quite depressing CD, but Lisa manages to convey sincerity and honesty with her deep, husky voice.
There have been comparisons, in the media, with Sheryl Crow [style] and Cher [voice] but as Elvis once said, when asked who he sounded like "I don't sound like nobody" and Lisa is the same. She really does have a unique sounding voice.
The CD tends to sound over-produced on some of the tracks, and it would have been nice to hear her sing to minimum backing, but that's being over critical.
Hopefully the music buying public can see beyond the media track, that this is Elvis' daughter, she is only cashing in on his name, and take the time to listen to her CD.
The enhanced copy includes the video to the debut single "Lights Out" and a behind the scenes look at shooting the video. Both of which are a welcome addition, as well as a bonus track.
All in all, it is a well crafted and enjoyable debut.
Well done Lisa, your father would've been proud of you.
