EDITORS’ NOTES

Aimee Mann’s music has always had a streak of melancholy, but never so pronounced—or elegantly executed—as it is here. From the gentle waltz of “Stuck in the Past” to the rainy-day chamber pop of “Simple Fix,” Mann explores the worlds of crumbling couples, problem drinkers, and fading stars with a controlled beauty that eludes the characters in their (probably messy) lives. “Falling for you was a walk off a cliff,” she sings on closer “Poor Judge,” proof that her empathy hasn’t gotten in the way of her caustic wit.

Please Don't Read Pre-Order Reviews

Please don't read pre-order reviews like this and disregard reviews made before 3/31/17 -until the album comes out. I'll be buying her album and I can't wait for it but iTunes needs to stop allowing pre-order reviews (such as this) until the album actually comes out. Thanks.

I've been a fan of Aimee Mann since the 80's and " she was singing in "'Til Tuesday".
She's matured and her distinctive voice continues to astound me. Her newest songs are lovely and resonate with harmony , interesting lyrics and distinctive catchy rhythms. Still an original- thank goodness Aimee has not followed the other music lemmings into unoriginal repetitious techno Pop club music - Bravo Aimee!

Aimee Never Disappoints !

I have been going to her concerts and buying her music for years. She was wonderful in a band, but I have really enjoyed her solo career. This album is certainly the great music I have come to expect from someone with her talent. This album was worth the wait.
