iTunes Review

Aimee Mann and Ted Leo toured together and discovered a musical chemistry that comes to brilliant light on The Both. Each songwriter contributes songs that sound personal, though all were collaborations in the end. The two then perform them with arrangements where both musicians give their input. Leo’s “Milwaukee” benefits from having Mann’s harmony attached; whether Mann and Leo are harmonizing or singing to each other in an emotionally charged call-and-response, their voices work well together (the key to any vocal duo). Leo adds his Thin Lizzy/hard rock guitars to Mann’s somber pop; they also cover the early Thin Lizzy tune “Honesty Is No Excuse,” and Mann lends a prettiness to Leo's power-punk dreams. Mann sweetens Leo’s “Volunteers of America,” while Mann’s “You Can’t Help Me Now” is toughened up by his snarling guitar work. While it’s often obvious who wrote the heart of each song here, it’s a great feeling when Mann and Leo are on equal footing during “The Prisoner,” “Bedtime Stories,” and “The Inevitable Shove,” and you’re not really sure.

Still Aimee

A million years ago Aimee sold me a Buzzcocks record at Newbury Comics. I’ve been crushing ever since and this latest record is yet another chapter of her exceptional talent and collaboration. “You Can’t Help Me Now” is killer.

Aimee and ted are the best! It doesn't get any better than this folks

Not Grabbing Me

I can't believe it, but an Aimee Mann album I am not excited about - nor purchasing. I have been a fan since before Voices Carry and 'til Tuesday, and was actually at Tower Records at midnight the night Whatever came out to purchase - but this album just drones to me in the bits I hear in the clips here. I can appreciate Aimee's desire to explore and experiment, but to sacrifice her knack to create a pop hook and melody - isn't worth it. Next time she feels the urge to be in a band again, I hope she puts 'til Tuesday back together and gives "Everything's Different Now" a proper tour. It pains me to say this as I really do support the artists I follow, but I won't be buying this album.


Formed: 2012 in Milwaukee, WI

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

Indie rock icon Ted Leo and much loved singer/songwriter Aimee Mann were touring together in 2012, and while playing in Milwaukee and checking out the sights in between the soundcheck and the show, they had a flash of inspiration and decided to team up as a band. The duo spent the next year writing songs, in back and forth fashion, before rounding up a drummer (Scott Seiver, a well-known session guy who was playing in her band) and a producer (Paul Bryan, who was also in Mann's band). The band, now...
