Format: Audio CD
Letters to Cleo-Aurora Gory Alice (1994) Another Boston-based band, but this one goes a bit deeper than the last. At first listen, it sounds like a rehashed Cheap Trick album. The single for "Here & Now" appearing on the "Melrose Place" soundtrack didn't help much either. But Kaye Hanley's lyrics are much more honest and darker than your ordinary pop songs. Written after a big breakup, the songwriter pulls you into her world of agonizing emotional pain and regret, chronic depression and inner turmoil. The song lyrics in this album come the closest to what I know of love, the sheer intensity of feelings and chaos of betrayal. Kaye chants, "Can't tear yourself away, can you?" like a mantra for the codependent. But "Wasted" is the most gut-wretching of them all: "The saddest sound I ever heard/The quiet that takes the place of the silence that takes the place of your voice.../I'll just come apart or something/No one could be more empty than I am/and I would take it all back if I could/But I can't." Wow. And let's not forget the great musicians, either. This album has many great basslines and subtle guitar-work. After two more great cds under their belts, this is definitely my vote for the most underestimated rock band.

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.

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'.

I love this album to death. Brings back my 90's indie fan girl-ing past! Just toss a few of these tracks on a mix tape with Juliana Hatfield, Sleater Kinney, that dog, Stereolab, Plumtree, Jale, Portishead, and Velocity Girl, and I'm totally transported back to the best parts of high school.

Edgy alternative rock featuring the Beverly hills 90210 inspired hit 'Here & Now'. Great vocals and endearing beats, but that afore mentioned song is clearly the best one. The band also was successful with their contribution to the '10 things I hate about you' soundtrack and did all the music for the 'Josie and the Pussycats' soundtrack as well. Both are worth getting if you liked this one.

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.
