Overview

To Whom It May Concern

On her debut album, Lisa Marie Presley emerges as a brooding but less pretentious Fiona Apple. Four years in the making, To Whom It May Concern may even be strong enough to make tabloid readers forget that Elvis's baby girl was briefly married to Nicolas Cage and Michael Jackson. Helping Presley make the transition from Graceland princess to hopeful pop star are producers Andrew Slater and Eric Rosse, who have worked with Apple and Tori Amos, respectively, and give the disc an ambient, modern-rock sound. Thus, To Whom It May Concern bristles with Presley's rich, burnished voice, which has a husky, Cher-like quality and carries songs such as the guitar-driven, Wallflowers-esque "Lights Out" (on which she eerily sings about her Memphis roots) and the ethereal, string-laced "Nobody Noticed It." Elsewhere, Presley's edgy vocals suggest the noir-ish tone of Mazzy Star on "So Lovely" and the snarling, brutal self-analysis of "S.O.B." Far from being a vanity project, To Whom It May Concern is a winning personal statement that does the Presley legacy proud.

My dad works at Sony, so I got to hear this one early. It's so good! It's right up there with J-Lo's new release and kind of resembles Mariah Carey's early years (when she was recording with Mudshark Records). Only using a co-writer on 8 songs, Lisa Marie really lets loose with her emotions on "The Good, The Bad, The Man Drooling in my Bed", "Save me a slice of that pumpkin pie", and "Moonwalking through Vegas". Having Slash fill in with some guitar licks, plus Jimmy Jam creating a lot of the danceable beats, you can't go wrong! Plus, she's got that Elvis swagger!

This CD is absolutely fantastic. Lisa Presley is an extremely competent singer and song writer. Her voice is rich and sultry; her lyrics meaningful and beautifully written.

I like this album, and I think that Lisa Marie has a wonderful voice. The only reason why I've given it three stars is because of the bad language it contains.

I was amazingly pleased with the CD. When I heard here single Lights Out I really like her but didn't hear any others, so I wasn't sure the CD was going to be good. Her voice is awesome. Only disappointment is the langauge.

It can't be easy to follow the King. If you're expecting Lisa Marie to open her mouth and Elvis to come out it won't happen. But she has a smoky, sultry voice, and the songs were written by her. Definitely an enjoyable and accomplished first album.

I am too young to remember elvis. VH1 did a special on this artist and the music drew me in. It is a spirited work with exceptional emotional and break thru overtones. Recommend it to any one who wants to recognize a new artist in the making. Bravo to the artist and the team that created this timeless masterpiece.

I had seen all the promotional hype prior to the release and was quite intriqued. I LOVE and admire Lisa Marie for her "make no apologies" attitude toward life and her music. She's comfortable in her own skin and with the decisions she's made. Her music is raw and reflects this. I hope this is only the beginning from her. No BUBBLEGUM here, thank GOD!!!!!

I love this CD - my favorite! I can't wait for her next one, I understand she's working on it now. I can relate to almost every song, right to my soul. I've seen her live and cried when she sang, "Nobody Noticed It" - AWESOME!!!
