The Classics IV performed "Pollyanna" on Dick Clark's TV Show Where the Action Is! and "Pollyanna" was a regional hit. But when WABC (AM) radio in New York started playing it they received a call from the Four Seasons' manager demanding they cease airplay of "Pollyanna" or they would no longer get exclusives on future Four Seasons recordings, among other disincentives. The group landed a deal with Imperial Records. Pollyanna" b/w "Cry Baby" As "The Classics".

The album also features gems with quintessionally Melanie Martinez titles like Sippy Cup, Pacify Her and Mrs. See the full tracklist below.

Cry Baby is the debut full-length album of Melanie Martinez, a finalist from The Voice US. Its release date was August 14 2015, with an accompanying tour of the same name kicking off on the 26th. The concept revolves around the persona Cry Baby, the embodiment of Melanie’s emotional troubles. She covers situations spanning from a no-show birthday party, a broken family, and many more.

This is a fantastic opener - a cool minimalist electronic jam. Its witty lyrics create a spooky tone with Martinez’s whispery vocals. The bridge uses a nice percussive motif to mimic the tears of cry baby. Dollhouse is catchy, heavily electronic, with a creepy vibe, and you get a touch of Lana Del Rey coming through. There are some truly fantastic tracks on this album, but certain numbers just didn’t deliver and hindered the overall impact of the album. I appreciate the style Martinez is going for, but when it got too dark, it didn’t work for me. You can find a storybook online here written by Martinez explaining the story tale of the LP, but the arc didn’t help me understand or enjoy the album more as a whole.

Original soundtrack of "Cry-Baby", a John Waters film.
