From the artist that is now known as Allie X, this is her baroque, singer-songwriter, cabaret like album that is equal parts the creative, inventive weird pop we know from her Allie X persona, mixed with what I feel are more personal and to the core songwriter melodies. Obviously inspired by various plays, musicians and emotions, Allie Hughes is a short but sweet window into our pure-pop queen Allie X's past. After hearing it from a friend who had somehow found it, I'm inclined to say tracks 2-4 and tracks 8-9 are my favorite. But they all offer something special. I understand why she doesn't want this music to become widely available as it is quite different from her Allie X career, I still think it's something that showcases her almost painfully obvious talent and wish she was more proud of it. But as a fan of Allie, in any form, (including Andra and Alexandra) I will NEVER go against her wishes and publically post them. She's building something right now and I would never want to infringe upon that. Still, if you have a chance to listen to it by more quiet, hidden means, please do. While Allie doesn't want it out there for the world to hear, and understandably, I feel the work deserves its own credit and love. Love the work, but respect the artist.
