In this previous to last post I also will present to top albums by Lisa. In her case, her top 4 albums:4. The Way It Really Is (2004) :: 70.9
Although the album was not as commercially successful as its predecessors, it was very well received by some critics who noted on the mature and strong writing by Loeb, with Stephen Thomas Erlewine calling it "the best, most cohesive record she's made, a clean, crisp collection of well-crafted, gentle tunes that slowly, surely work into the subconscious.3. Cake & Pie (2002) :: 80.2
Cake and Pie did not receive major backing or promotion from Loeb's record label which led to the album's commercial failure, having reached 199 on the Billboard 200 albums chart with Loeb being subsequently dropped from the label. Loeb bought the rights to the masters of the songs, and the album was reissued and renamed Hello Lisa.2. Tails (1995) :: 85.2
The album was well received by the public, as it was certified Gold by the RIAA on December 1, 1995. Critics were also favorable to the album, with Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly, in particular, noting that "Loeb has an undeniable gift for creating an air of intimacy and vulnerability, which may well be enough for 'Stay' fans looking for additional doses of contemplative melancholy."1. Firecracker (1997) :: 89.2
Firecracker is a Grammy-nominated album by Lisa Loeb. It was released in 1997 through Geffen Records. Cheva Chonin of Rolling Stone noted that the "endearing naivete and frothy, indie-rock guitar" of her debut album had been replaced "by staid arrangements and lackluster riffs."
While Tails cought my attention, Firecracker made me a fan. More polished production, but still highlighting her simplicity and sweetness.
