Album Review

Leah Andreone's debut, Veiled, can be compared to Alanis Morissette at times — overtly sexual lyrics mixed with slinky, melodic alterna-pop. But her songs stand on their own with sincere and confessional content, often seeming like the tunes are a form of therapy for Leah. "It's Alright, It's OK" opens the album on an upbeat note, with an instantly memorable chorus kicking the song into high gear. "Happy Birthday" is the most Alanis-like track on the album, while other tracks such as the acoustic "You Make Me Remember," the rocking "Who Are They to Say," and the funky "Hell to Pay" all hit the mark. Although not as successfully experimental as her next album, 1998's Alchemy, Veiled does a more than adequate job of capturing Leah Andreone at her most basic and straightforward.

Customer Reviews

More Than Alright, More Than OK

I can't think of a single artist currently in the business who has the raw power and emotional resonance of Leah Andreone. Sure, her voice takes a bit of getting used to -- she could easily be described as shrill -- but she's a rare singer/songwriter who can tap into very ragged and painful emotions without lapsing into sentimentality. Add to that a strong sense of melody and a dash of rocker-grrl energy, you get a phenomenal album.

One Great Album

I was turned on to Leah's album in 1996 by a rep @ RCA. The radio station I programmed played It's Alright, It's OK for a while. I saw her perform @ at record convention in early 1997. By the time I saw Leah perform, I knew all the songs. Give this album 3 listens. Your first listen will feel a bit odd. Her lyrics and melodies are strange at first. The second listen you will start to get it. By the third listen you will be addicted. J

Ouch-a catharsis not to be missed

Forget anything negative you've read about this album. I first found it on one of those preview machines that you touch and play at a TOWER RECORDS-- lamenting that loss (anyone who ever haunted a TOWER knows what I mean). To the point... this album is the epitomy of soul-baring. It is a journey through the life of troubled youth. The experiences related in this album are in all of us to a greater or lesser extent whether or not we've managed through time or denial to suppress them. Leah had one good album in her, and this was it! "It's Alright, It's Okay" hurts! Imagine watching someone you admire, love, idolize. You know that someone is special, unique, and bound to self-destruct- and there is nothing you can do about it. This song tells that story so painfully, one winces. Maybe it is cliched in the eyes of some, but I think Leah tells a story in 4 minutes and change that some directors cannot bring to the screen in two hours or more. "Happy Birthday" speaks of a child's yearning and rejection. "Problem Child" likewise tells the story of youth who will do anything to be recognized. I work with the troubled young. It is a very accurate picture! Anything but indifference is a cry repeated endlessly by so very many children today. Of course, Leah's take is cynical- and it hurts. In fact, with very few exceptions, this is a journey about rejection. But it seems cathartic. If you can get through what one can only describe as a painful trek inside Leah's psyche, it is rewarding at the end. Tears may be shed, but what melodies, what pictures painted in lyrics, what soulfulness. Thank you, Leah!
