"Save Me" epitomises her blend of deceptively uncomplicated melodies, with lyrics that deal with ordinary situations in an extraordinary fashion. The "Save Me" video, specially filmed on the "Magnolia" set is also included on this album and is highly recommended.
Other highlights include the rock-influenced "Red Vines", surely the best sing-a-long track I've ever heard. "Calling It Quits" deserves a special mention for it's stunningly crafted lyrics on top of a very open sound that has a big-screen feel to it.
If you are buying your first Aimee Mann album my advice is to go straight for the best. Her previous albums, "Whatever", "I'm With Stupid" and the "Magnolia" soundtrack are all excellent, but this record is exceptional!
There are some notable standouts here. Calling It Quits has a breathtakingly euphoric feel, while Save Me contents itself by sitting at the end of the record and quietly and understatedly stealing the show.
Her voice is mesmerising, her lyrics are sharp and insightful and each and every song is so well crafted, you can't fail to be amazed at the skill of this singer. Oh, and she did the artwork herself too. This is no ordinary singer/songwriter people: this is one extraordinary professional.
