Product Description

Product Description

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1985 album from the Boston New Wavers. Voices Carry featured their breakthrough single of the same name which reached #8 in the US Hot 100 and #14 in Billboard Magazine's 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'. 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. Hot Shot Records.

Cross the hiccuping mannerisms of the Cars' Ric Ocasek with the edgy style of the B-52s' Cindy Wilson and you've got the vocal sound of Aimee Mann, the bass-playing, silver-maned leader of 'Til Tuesday. Winner of a Boston Battle of the Bands in 1984 that led to a recording contract, this post-new-wave quartet specialized in moody music that crept under your skin--no more so than on the title track of the '85 debut, the literate ("In the dark, I like to read his mind") Top 20 hit "Voices Carry." Nothing here quite matches that song's murky intensity, but the almost equally claustrophobic, aptly titled "Love in a Vacuum" comes close. --Billy Altman

OK...Their are a number of groups I feel extremly strong about from the 1980's and this is one of them. I beleive the best video of 1984 was made by the best new group of 1984, who In my Humble opionion produced the best albumn of 1984. The Albumn is none other than Voices Carry, by the Band Til Tuesday. This is not the first time I've commented about this group and it certainly won't be last. The group first broke on to the new wave scene six months after its formation when it won radio station WBCN's battle of the bands competition in 1983. Their debut albumn in 1984 "Voices Carry" is an absolute master peice...Its a shame none of their other songs faired as well on the charts."Looking Over My Shoulder " and "I Could get Used to This" are excellent song both of which could have reached number 1 and "Don't Watch Me Bleed" is one of the most beautiful ballads written during the eighties. The entire albumn is solid from beginning to end with no fill at all.I believe the lack of success by Til Tuesday can be attributed to the record company who failed in their responsabilties to market the group properly.

...When I think of the New Wave, Goth and Punk scenes from the eighties most of the groups that come to mind are usually from Europe. Nations like England, Ireland and Germany, tended to produced the bulk of the bands in the movement, yet here we have a rare example of a band from the USA...born on the streets of Boston, they were, and still are a a Shining example of everything NEW WAVE should be...

For those of you looking to start collecting Til Tuesday's CDs, I recommend you get this one first. Very rarely do I come across a CD where I love every song on it, but here is one of them. I just have to say, I'm annoyed how most of the artists that go solo and change their sound in the 90's always make this dramatic deal about forgetting where they came from. Aimee Mann is one of those artists and I can't understand why. Personally, I don't like her solo work (I don't dig accoustic music anyway). 'Til Tuesday was an awesome band that cranked out some of the best New Wave and Synth Pop music. This particular album could actually be considered Gothic Pop because of its dark, cold nature. This is one of my all-time favourite albums, with my favorite songs being: "Love In A Vacuum", "I Could Get Used To This", and "No More Crying". I wish the single version of "Love In A Vacuum" was available. It has much better instrumentation, and the vocals come out more. If you ever get a chance to see the music video, they use that mix. Crank it up and listen to the difference! 'TIL TUESDAY RULES!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic for any time! Nov. 17 2002
By zmax - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Call it what you will this is my favorite Til Tuesday album. I saw the
band play live many many times in Boston back in '84/'85 and I was always
in awe. The first time I saw them play at the now demolished Rat in
Kenmore Square, my friends and I knew we were seeing something special. I
watched the band and their song list grow as well as their popularity and
the crowds of people that began showing up especially after the release of
the album.
Before the first album I only knew the live shows. Most people who only
knew them from the single on the radio unfortunately never heard the edgy
fullness and vitality of their live sound. The album by contrast was very
produced with a very clean cathedral reverb type sound. In fact there were
many songs in their repitiore that never made it to the second or any
other album which is a shame because they were damn good! If you can get a
copy of their video retrospective the last song gives a little taste of the live show.
I could tell from seeing and listening to them that Robert Holmes was a
great guitar player. After Til Tuesday he formed his own band called Ultra
Blue and it was here that he really cut loose and showed his chops.
Honestly the guy is one of the best (and most under-rated) guitarists I've
ever seen. Aimee Mann of course was a sight and sound to behold and we all
know she's done very well for herself since. I've been trying to get some
of the photos I took from back then onto .
In any event this work remains, and for me it is still a great pleasure to
listen to. While this album is rooted in the 1980's from whence it came and
you can hear that, it was one of the best efforts from that time, and I
believe its also become a timeless classic for any time.

5.0 out of 5 stars It touches a nerve and breaks my heart every time I hear it Dec 9 2000
By H. Powell - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This album was the soundtrack for the summer I first fell in love. "Voices Carry" (the title track) was on the radio like every fifteen minutes back then; blaring at pool parties, playing at the roller rink, playing on the radio of my '84 Oldsmobile Cutlas, playing everywhere, even the damn hard rock stations played it. My first real love interest liked the I (a die hard metal fan) bought the album...and I was stunned. As we all know, first loves often become first heartbreaks and many times it's your fault in one way or another. I'm a guy, and all of the songs Aimee Mann writes are about boorish, egotistical, domineering guys. I was that guy and I payed dearly for it. Every time I hear the song "You Know The Rest", I just want to cry. This is easily the best song in this collection, but for some mysterious reason it never got as much radio play as "Love In A Vacuum", "Looking Over My Shoulder", or "Voices Carry". Aimee Mann's voice is spine-chillingly beautiful, Joey Pesce's keyboard touches are often haunting, and Robert Holmes' guitar licks give you the impression that he is actually a hard rock guitar slinger at heart but he's being restrained by the straight-jacket of the "new wave" genre. Much has been made about Mann's solo albums ("Whatever", "I'm With Stupid", "Bachelor #2", and The Magnolia soundtrack), but her folkish solo stuff is nowhere near as poignant or heart-rending as her first 'Til Tuesday "new wave" effort. This is a beautiful collection of songs...I don't know why people always make the Cars/Rick Ocasek connection, because I simply don't hear it. But that's music critics for you...they can't tell a good song from a hole in the ground. Buy this, young 'uns (and I'm not just saying this because I was turned on by punk chicks like Anne Carlyle in "Liquid Sky" and I liked Aimee Mann's hair...the songs are good, trust me). UP THE IRONS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gothic pop from 80's still rules Oct. 23 2001
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Aimee Mann's journey begins here, with the first 'til tuesday album. Voices Carry, whose title track with her shrill vocals and Robert Holmes' rhythm guitar netted the quartet their only Top Ten hit on the Billboard charts. The combination of Mann and Holmes set the stage for what might be called gothic pop.
There's a consistent dolorous sound throughout the album. In fact anyone hears any of the three singles, "Love In A Vacuum", "Looking Over My Shoulder", and the title track, can trace this to their earliest material. Voices Carry is the most mournful of 'til tuesday's three albums. All eleven songs deal with the breakup in various stages. In fact, it is possible to string along the songs into a heartwrenching concept album.
"Winning The War" shows the relationship at its most bitter and vicious as demonstrated by the opening lines: "You fight just for the sake of it/You know what hurts the most/You might have once been faking it/but now it cuts too close" And here's the chorus, "Winning the war/and losing every battle/You close the door/on happy ever after". The song goes on along the lines that the two should have quit while they were ahead instead of dragging this thing out to this stage.
"Don't Watch Me Bleed" is probably the ne plus ultra of despair I've heard in any of their songs. This is the point where it's finally over between the two. It's final quits, as evidenced by the chorus: "So don't just kiss me goodbye/that's not what I need/Don't just kiss me goodbye/Don't watch me bleed".
People who have gone through a breakup or divorce may find this either cathartic or too tough to take, depending on one's fragility.
All in all, a wonderful start from Aimee and company. 'til next tuesday then!

4.0 out of 5 stars The prosaically titled 'CD sound quality?' Aug. 8 2003
By Joe - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Not so much a review as a caveat; I bought 'Voices Carry' back in '84, on the strength of the single, 'Voices Carry', and because - finding it in a bargain bin for 99p - I had little to lose. It turned out to be a singularly good investment, and I bought the following albums, 'What About Love?' and 'Everything's Different Now' on CD, then waited, vainly I was beginning to think, for 'Voices' to be released in CD format.
Finally, half a year or so ago, following Aimee Mann's cameo appearance on 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer', I happened across a site dedicated to Aimee, where all the old albums and tracks were being discussed. It prompted me to do another search for 'Voices' on CD, and this time I was successful! I also found an article by Mike Thorne, the producer of 'Voices', in which he suggests that some pressings of the record were of inferior quality ('screechy, low in level, completely lacking the power of the original'...An 'investigation' 'revealed' that the album had been 'recut at the pressing plant' by 'the night shift' in response to the 'unexpectedly high demand'). Better had get the CD, I thought, just in case the copy I bought was one of the poor ones.
Well here's the rub. Having played the CD I find, IMO, that the tape I made of the album for listening to in the the car nearly twenty years ago sounds BETTER. No mean feat, that. On the title track in particular, the vocals just don't seem to stand out as they do on the taped recording. My greatest fear is that I have a CD version of the 'recut' record. Maybe it's actually a whole new farrago. Just be aware that if this record doesn't jump out at you, it's still worth checking out the other albums, especially 'Everything's...' [would be a '5' if the quality was up to scratch, and other buyers might get lucky...]
