Customer Review

on 2 September 2013
This is the first 'til Tuesday album, reissued with three bonus tracks. This was, by far, the weakest of the three 'til Tuesday albums, with inconsistent writing and a shrill, unpleasant sound. The reissue really does nothing to improve the sound, and obviously doesn't improve the writing. The reason this album is getting a reissue, of course, is that one of the best songs here, Voices Carry, was a huge hit in the prime MTV era, and is (deservedly) much beloved.

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).

Oh well.

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.
