It’s her first new album in four years. She uses elements from her past and shapes it into new material. The record reveals she’s up to her same old tricks. She’s not crazy. She’s back!

Aimee Mann: 19 September 2010 - Chicago

An Aimee Mann concert will never be memorable for bombast and showmanship but rather for the scope and sweep with which Mann delivers her songs.

In Praise of Older Women: The Best Records of 2008 by Women 45 Years Old and Over

The old music-industry adage is that if a woman doesn't have a hit by the time she's 22 years old, she should probably look for another career. That's obviously a load of blarney.

Aimee Mann: The Forgotten Arm

Fifth solo release from consummate singer-songwriter is an examination of the centripetal destruction that consumes lives at the point of no return. It's also a concept album that actually works -- devastatingly so.
