iTunes Editors’ Notes

It's often been noted that as singer/songwriters become more reflective, their ability to write catchy tunes dwindles. Partway through her solo career, Mann found herself recording well-accessorized adult-pop tunes that were deep in thought but just a bit short on hooks. Now firmly acknowledged for her literary abilities, she aims for stronger tunes with greater energy. "Crazytown" kicks into step with new wave keyboards giving her a vital, more urgent sound than her work of the past decade. James Mercer of The Shins joins her for the spunky "Living a Lie." The guitars in "Charmer" punch up the keyboards. "Gumby" rolls with youthful enthusiasm, while "Red Flag Driver" has an extra skip in its step. Fans of 'Til Tuesday and Mann's earliest solo work will be happy to hear she's refound her youth. Mann's voice has always recalled the warm, dulcet tones of Karen Carpenter on moderately paced numbers, and sure enough, on tunes such as "Disappeared" and "Barfly" she fulfills that role as well.

Dont Clean Up For Me

I echo the other reviewer who asked about the 'clean lyrics' tag. I deeply resent censorship, and I hope this doesn't mean you sold me the wrong product, motherf____ers. What I want to buy is whatever Aimee intended.

It's Not Censored: "There is only the one version." - @aimeemann, Twitter Sept 23, 2012

This is not a cleaned or censored version of the album. This is the original and only version of the album. So, feel free of corporate oppression and buy it! You will love it.

Clean? I want Aimee uncensored!

I refuse to buy an album with 'cleaned' up lyrics - if you're going to censor something, you ought to at least have the decency to offer the real deal for those of us who care

During the '80s, Aimee Mann led the post-new wave pop group 'Til Tuesday. After releasing three albums with the group, she broke up the band and embarked on a solo career. Her first solo album, Whatever, was a more introspective, folk-tinged effort than 'Til Tuesday's albums, and received uniformly positive reviews upon its release in the summer of 1993. However, the album was just a small hit, spending only seven weeks on the American charts, where it peaked at 127. Nevertheless, Whatever rejuvenated...
