* `Til Tuesday were a popular new-wave/synth pop band of the 1980s. which brought to us the talents of Grammy award winner Aimee Mann.
* `Til Tuesday were signed to Epic after winning Boston's WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble in 1983 and released their debut album VOICES CARRY two years later. Through signing to Epic they secured the production talents of Mike Thorne (Soft Cell, Soft Machine, John Cale, The The and Bronski Beat)
* VOICES CARRY was released in 1985 and featured their breakthrough single of the same name which reached #8 in the US Hot 100 and #14 in Billboard Magazines US Rock Tracks Chart. They followed this up with two more hit singles from the album in the form of Looking Over My Shoulder and Love In A Vacuum. The latter had been a big college rock hit in its demo form before the band signed to Epic.
* `Til Tuesday also managed to win the MTV Video Music Award for Best New Artist with the video for the Voices Carry single in 1985,
* Hot Shot Records is proud to present VOICES CARRY fully remastered, in a deluxe Super Jewel case with extensive liner notes including exclusive interviews with Robert Hoimes (guitarist) and Mike Thorne as well as three bonus single remixes, two of which make their debut CD release here.
* This Hot Shot Records expanded remaster is a must for all fans of 80s pop, new wave and modern rock.

However, in the face of their follow-up albums, this is probably the least spectacular though by no means a bad record. I think the reason is because some tracks, I Could Get Used To This, Are You Serious to name a couple, are kind of a dance-filler track. If you like dance music, then this is probably the best record, but if you care more about musical substance, then Welcome Home and Everything's Different Now are probably better bets.
Whilst the New Wave scene was presumably long over by 1985, America, always behind the times when it comes to other nation's talents, finally allowed itself to notice this outfit, but sadly, the only way they predictably did it was a showy video for MTV for the second single 'Voices Carry' (the first single 'Love In A Vacuum' was ignored, and remained so when it was re-released as the third and, sadly, final single) from the album of its hugest song's title. Already the label had stuck their oar in over the "controversy" of Mann singing such a song to a WOMAN instead of a man! God, America, but what can you expect? Cyndi Lauper, having just come to prominence herself apparently wanted the song (leaving the gender unchanged) but only if 'Til Tuesday weren't to include it on their album.Read more ›
It's unfortunate that the second and third albums (Welcome Home and Everything's Different Now) haven't been granted the same attention, as those are better recorded, and are better collections of songs.
Anyway, back to this reissue. The three bonus tracks are single versions of album tracks, and are only modestly different than their album incarnations. Nothing to get excited about. I wish they'd included something a little more interesting, such as "Just Like Me", a song performed during the live shows in support of this album and which appeared on a video that MTV showed repeatedly. That's a great pop song, and it never appeared on any release (vinyl or CD).
Personally, I'd recommend getting the Coming Up Close compilation in lieu of this album, unless you're a big fan. And if you're a big fan, you probably already have this.
Here are certainly all the elements that makes her music so wonderful and intriguing, the choruses in "Looking Over My Shoulder" and "You Know The Rest", hear it once and you are hooked forever. It also includes what is, surprisingly, her only real bona-fide hit "Voices Carry" with vocal-inflictions very reminiscent
of the deliciuos Dale Bozzio (Missing Persons).
The lyrics are - as an Aimee fan would suspect - mostly about the sweet sadness of broken hearts and smouldered love affairs. The music is rather new wave/pop, with the synths of Michael Montes very dominating and with an anonymous John Taylor sounding session bassplayer and havn't perhaps stood the test of time as well as Aimee's songs.
A must for all fans of the beauty of wellcrafted Songs.

That album didn't have a bad song on it so I rebought it in cd form like 20 years later and it sounded just as new and great.
Aimee's got a great voice and she's super hot to look at .I've seen recent pictures of her now and she still great looking.
I went out with a girl who was a disaster as a girlfriend and she liked Aimee too, But she liked the current Aimee Mann.
She was such a big fan that she never even knew Aimee was in Til Tuesday until I played her the albums and she still didn't recognize her voice in those songs.
Unfortunately for me, going out with that girl was such a nightmare I can't even listen to Til Tuesday anymore. That was 6 years ago and I'm still not over it yet. Maybe its because a lot of Aimees songs are about bad relationships.
I haven't followed her since the 80's so I don't know what she's singing about now.
I couldn't listen to her anyway even if I wanted to, its still too painful for me to hear her haunting voice, it just reminds me of all the pain that witch put me through all those years ago.
Their next album would include a mix of tracks that have this same synth/new wave rock sound as well as the folky/acoustic sound that would appear on the third album. The band broke up after that. It's interesting to see how much their sound changed, although the songwriting was basically the same.
