All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
In retrospect, the monster success of "Stay I Missed You" did Lisa Loeb no favors, much as Til Tuesday's "Voices Carry" eventually must have become something of a burden for Aimee Mann. The comparison is apt, both because Hello Lisa recalls the poppy but low-key folk-rock that's long been Mann's stock-in-trade and because its release was marred by the same kind of record company politics that stalled Mann's career for years: Hello Lisa is actually a revamped version of the earlier A&M release Cake and Pie, which had been dumped unceremoniously on the market earlier in 2002. Releasing herself from her contract, Loeb signed with the friendlier Artemis Records, replaced ...

Releasing herself from her contract, Loeb signed with the friendlier Artemis Records, replaced a few of Cake and Pie's weaker tracks with better new material -- including an excellent acoustic reworking of the extremely Mann-like single "What Am I Supposed to Say" -- and reissued the album in a more attractive new cover. Other highlights include the snarky teenage romance tune "You Don't Know Me" and the catchy power ballad "Underdog."

    a little pointless if you already have Cake and Pie, but still great

    if you already have Cake and Pie you will notice that this album looks very similar to that one. the difference is the subtraction of four songs and the addition of three new ones, "did that," "what am i supposed to say?," and "take me back." as the reviewer before me mentioned, the three new songs are outstanding and actually make this new album worth it. personally i don't get the whole hello kitty thing. i think it's a little cheesy. but the music is spectacular. if you already own Cake and Pie and don't want to buy a whole new album, she does sell the "Underdog" EP at lisaloeb.com with the new three songs, and you can also just buy the tracks at digital vendors.

    It's NOT Cake and Pie

    When I first looked into this album, I was a bit confused. Why does she have two albums with identical track listings? As life went on, I bought both of them and...wow. Cake and Pie is a very strong album, but the bonus tracks that come on Hello Lisa are totally worth it. "Did That" has become a favorite song of mine and I can't imagine why it didn't make the cut for the first album. So, even if you have Cake and Pie, this album is still worth the purchase.

    Hello Lisa...a definite!

    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 unique because the album is mostly made up of songs from "Cake AND Pie", so it's a nice little joining. 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. The song is about being the underdog, the little guy, the one who's "last in line". With the combo of an orchestra and guitars, this song brings you to a place, (like many other songs on the CD) and again, makes you think about life. 3. "You Don't Know Me" (Lisa Loeb & Dweezil Zappa) - Another fun and catchy song, with AWESOME riffs! This song is about a girl who gets a boyfriend for the first time, and lets it get to her head. Sound familiar? Oh yeah! Lisa and beau Dweezil did an excellent job of articulating this situation. 4. "Drops Me Down" (Lisa Loeb) - "And it drops me, drops me down / And I'm not feeling so good again..." You said it, Lisa. In this song, Lisa basically points out the fact that life can really suck sometimes. The lyrics and music join forces to create this feeling that runs right through you, and once again, makes you think. Excellent song. 5. "The Way it Really Is" (Music by Lisa Loeb & Glenn Ballard, Lyrics and Melody by Lisa Loeb & Lindy Robbins) - This is a neat song. My favorite thing about this one is the singing. Lisa's vocals and backing vocals are very different sounding, and it makes the track stand on its own. 6. "Bring Me Up" (Lisa Loeb) - What a great song! This is one of my favorites on the album! "Bring Me Up" is very appealing, with its nifty lyrics, magnificent guitar work, and also a neat beat. 7. "What Am I Supposed to Say?" (Music by Lisa Loeb & Randy Scruggs, Lyrics by Lisa Loeb) The lyrics in this track, again, are very obscure, but memorable, and that is VERY hard to find in songs. Scruggs brings a very country-driven sound to this song, and Lisa's fun acoustic makes for a great combo. 8. "Everyday" (Lisa Loeb & Randy Scruggs) - "Everyday / Love turns its back and just stands in my way..." Ah yes, the difficulties with love, that I know I will soon experience! What I love most about this song are the fantastic drums, which really hit you. 9. "Someone You Should Know" (Lisa Loeb & Dave Bassett) - The single from "Cake AND Pie", I love this song. It's a very uplifting and inspiring song. I love the chorus in this one - "What you got, isn't what you wanted / What you need, just happens to be / Someone you should know..." 10. "P

    Hello Lisa Rocks

    Lisa is back and in a big way. If you liked Lisa before or didn't get this cd and try it I know you will love it. Her soulful voice and smooth charisma is just amazing. She is so talented and this cd shows all aspects of how wonderful she is. If you into country, rock or punk this is a cd for you, she has no category that Doesn't fit her she fits into all of them and with such easy. Don't forget to check her out opening for the Goo Goo dolls now on tour :)

    The Cat's Meow

    Sanrio's Hello Kitty meets Lisa Loeb. The latest album from Lisa titled Hello Kitty is in a word...purrfect. Lisa has once again written thought provoking lyrics we all have come to know and appreciate. "You Don't Know Me" is a catchy, upbeat track that gets stuck in your head, you might even get caught whistling...with Lisa's new label Artemis, we are sure to hear and see more from the cat with cool specs...if you see her...tell Lisa Kitty said Hello.

    Best Kept Secret in Show Biz

    This CD is a nice contrast to all the mind numbing boy-band, baby doll singing no talent stars the late 90's and early 00's have produced. No lemmings need buy this CD, only true music fans who can appreciate the talent that went into writing and performing these songs, and the depths of your own being that a person has to go to find the true inspiration to inspire others. Thank you Lisa for another great disc.

    A Great Listening Experience!

    Lisa Loeb is definitely a master of her art. Best known for her single "Stay," this amazing artist continues to make an intimate connection with her listener by singing about real situations that we have all seen and can understand. With catchy tunes, smart lyrics, and skilled guitar she creates a masterpiece with this album. Most of the songs were released on the earlier album "Cake & Pie," but a recent move to a new record label prompted an updated re-release. If you have already bought "Cake & Pie," the three new songs "Did That," "What Am I Supposed to Say," and "Take Me Back" are well worth buying this album and supporting the great music she makes. If you don't have "Cake & Pie," you should definitely buy "Hello Lisa" to see what you have been missing.
