Hello Haunted
(1995) (2000)

Haunted is the second album by American singer/songwriter Poe, released in 2000 (see 2000
in music) after a five-year hiatus from her debut album Hello in 1995. The self-produced album
was created as a tribute to her father, and counterpart to her brother Mark Z. Danielewski's
novel House of Leaves.


3Track listing

Haunted found Poe combining traditional pop notions with electronic, dance and hard
rock music. A critical success[1] and largely adored by her existing fanbase [citation needed], it
nonetheless flopped commercially, largely due to the manner in which it was marketed. [citation
The song "Hey Pretty" was released as a promo single, but Poe's vocals had been
replaced with a chapter reading from her brother, as alternative radio of 2001 was not very
willing to play female artists.[2] It reached #13 on Billboard's US Modern Rock chart. The music
video for the song was deemed too racy for MTV[citation needed] showing a scantily clad Poe writhing
around in mud. A follow-up promo single, "Walk the Walk", was released because it had been
chosen as the theme song to a new TV drama called Girls Club. However, the show was
canceled after two episodes. "Wild" was released as a third single, garnering some radio play
in the Chicago area. The single was never released commercially, but featured a shorter radio
mix in addition to an acoustic/rock version of the song. The title track was used as the theme
song to the film Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2. The commercial failure of Poe's second album
contributed to the loss of her distribution contract with Atlantic Records.
Haunted was also referenced in the 2002 film Panic Room. In a conversation between Jodie
Foster's character and the agent selling the home containing the Panic Room, Sarah Altman
asks "Ever read any Poe?", to which the response given is "No, but I loved her last album!".
The song "Haunted" was also featured at the end of the second episode of the video
game Alan Wake for Xbox 360, as well as the Tai Chi Warmup in the Les Mills
BodyBalance/BodyFlow program release number 54.
The album also featured samples of audio recordings made by Poe's father, film director Tad
Danielewski. The cassettes were found by Poe and Mark after their father had died and were
literally audio-letters to the two of them that spanned back as far as their birth. Thus, the album
is usually interpreted as a real woman (Poe) singing tributes to her deceased father (who sings
back) even while telling the story of a group of fictional characters (from House of Leaves).

Haunted received generally positive reviews. On Metacritic, the album has a score of 76 out of
100, indicating "generally favorable reviews". [9]
MacKenzie Wilson of AllMusic gave the album a positive review, writing "Haunted is in its own
class of twisted intelligence and beauty." [3] In another positive review, PopMatters's Eden Miller
wrote "Few musicians are on the same level as Poe in terms of her bravery exposing and
expressing her own personal fears. While it's a bit obvious to say it, Haunted will haunt
you."[6] In another positive review, Jason Mandell of LA Weekly wrote "Those without patience
for such abstractions (brief though they may be) may find Haunted tiresome. The rest of us can
rejoice in its originality and thank our lucky stars that Poe had the confidence and imagination
to make it."[5]
In a mixed review, Rolling Stone's Neva Chonin wrote "Unfortunately, Haunted reverberates
with tired samples, rehashed echo effects and beats so plodding they could stop a
metronome."[8] Q also gave the album a mixed review, writing "The mood is too heavy for far
too long, but some good songs and more cohesive, melodic structures augur well for this
damaged daughter's future."[7]

Allmusic [1]

Hello is the debut album by American singer/songwriter Poe, released in 1995 on Modern
Records. The album was called "innovative" by critics due to its incorporation of R&B samples
into an electronic soundscape, something that was fairly unheard of at the time.

The first music video for the album was for the single "Angry Johnny"; it featured Poe on the
skeletal frame of a bed looking forlorn whilst destroying a variety of effects one might associate
with romance (like roses or a box of chocolates). The song's rage-filled lyrics quickly found her
being lumped into the "angry female rocker" category, and the video was heavily played on
MTV's Alternative Nation. The second single, "Hello", did not fare as well, until a remix version
was released two years after the album's initial release.
Hello was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America on November 20,
