5.0 out of 5 stars CD with a difference! 7 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
This 'Til Tuesday album, Everything's Different Now, is the last album the band ever recorded. It has no bad songs or fillers on it, it's pure pop pleasure from start to finish! 'Til Tuesday's lead singer/songwriter Aimee Mann has always written pop songs that sound timeless (you can hear influences from The Beatles, among others) and she also sings like an angel! She writes about (what else!) love - the loss of love, the longing for love etc...
The record company wanted to change the band to a more commercial style and asked them to co-write songs with Hollywood hit doctors. Instead Mann wrote a heartbreakingly beautiful song (The other end of the telescope) with Elvis Costello. Although the band broke up, Aimee Mann continues as a solo artist and still works with 'Til Tuesday drummer Michael Hausman, who's now her manager.
So whether you want a pop CD with 10 killer tracks, or a CD which you won't leave gathering dust, or just a nostalgia trip, this is your pick!!

5.0 out of 5 stars High point of Aimee Mann's career 30 July 2004
By Frank T
Format:Audio CD
Oddly, as Aimee Mann's songs have got gloomier over the 1990s and 2000s, her following has grown bigger. Perhaps that says something about the times we live in. Who knows. Anyhow, in the distant past she used to front Boston AOR combo 'Til Tuesday, who produced three quality power-pop albums during the late 1980s. Arguably the best of these was 'Everything's Different Now', a set of bittersweet songs dissecting the collapse of Mann's relationship with songwriter Jules Shear.

If Mann were writing these songs now, she'd employ thudding, funereal arrangements, fill them with arch, embittered lyrics and sing them in the mannered, don't-call-me-sweet style that has become her trademark. Instead, she chose the far more effective route of producing ten upbeat pop tunes whose musical chirpiness highlights rather than detracts from the lyrics' regretful poignancy. And her voice has never sounded lovelier.

All that said, it's undoubtedly true that you have to be something of a romantic to enjoy this kind of music. If you think navel-gazing is for pansies, stay well clear.

5.0 out of 5 stars til tuesday's final studio album is their absolute best! 5 Sep 2001
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Of the 80's bands, 'til tuesday was one of the most talented, thanks to Aimee Mann and Robert Holmes. Unfortunately, they fell into the trap of the sophomore slump and the tertiary collapse, after which they dissolved. Pity, really, since not only do I enjoy all three of their albums, but I consider this, their third and final album, released in 1988, to be their best accomplishment ever, even better than Aimee Mann's solo debut, Whatever. Call it a well-aged bottle of pleasing melancholy that keeps getting better.
The songs here are more wistful than downright sad as in Voices Carry, and have a more radio-friendly beat instead of a depressing dirge. No, it doesn't make one want to look for something sharp after listening to Type O Negative or Black Tape For A Blue Girl, but after listening to Everything's Different Now, you feel refreshed but want to take a nap to digest all that melancholy.
The title track, "Rip In Heaven," and "'J' For Jules" are prime examples of that bittersweet melancholy. Like popster Kim Wilde, Aimee Mann is a sage of lost love and times when things weren't so sad. Her voice is more polished here and the group more tight-knit, so there was no reason they couldn't have continued through the early 1990's, despite the explosion of the Seattle sound. Music buyers, thy name is fickle.
She is a great lyricist too. In "Rip In Heaven," she writes how fragile a creature optimism is: "optimistic feelings can't be/passed from hand to hand/You handle them/they tend to die." When she sings "We both know we had a past/but present must contain/a future where both of us can fit", she exemplifies the introspective rational who sees the present as an interval between past and present.
"'J' For Jules" is a song about her then-beau, music producer Jules Shear. She compares her relationship to a country. It's classic; it begins happy, there's that country beginning with 'J', then the bridge, where "there's no way a country could die/told me they drift away/but that's a lie" and the end of the country, which only exists in her heart.
It's magical when I pick up words and think, oh yes, that's the story of my life. The single "(Believed You Were) Lucky" begins with a guitar that preempts the hopelessness and resignation of the opening lines. When I hear, "So I guess I'll give it up/yeah I guess I will/What's the use in pushing/when it's all uphill", I hear a familiar soundtrack that's gone through my life. The chorus goes: "I wish you believed in life/believed in fate/believed you were lucky/and worth the wait/'cause life could be lovely/Life could be so great." Alas, this poor soul only wishes he did.
Another example are lines in "Long Gone (Buddy)": "Nobody wants to be happier more than I do/But happiness I must confess/I don't have" and "It's not that I'm frightened of being alone/It's just that I know what a burden this grief can be." Loneliness does carry freedom as a reward, but grief as a consequence.
My favorite song? "The Other End (Of The Telescope)", which features guest vocals by Elvis Costello. It could be sung in front of a campfire, but after a few beers, when the sad stage of being drunk sets in. But there are a whole lot of others that are nipping at its heels, like the other songs I have already mentioned.
There are many things I still wonder to this day. Why is life so painful sometimes, why did John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Selena, and Aaliyah have to die young, and why wasn't Everything's Different Now more popular?

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the One 15 Jan 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Agreed with the reviewer below. If those of you who have been turned on to Aimee from Magnolia have found your way to this page. THIS is the Til Tuesday CD to get. The first two Til Tuesday are strictly amateur hour compared to this. Mann's songwriting is so hopelessly overwhelmed with truamatic heartbreak, it's almost painful to listen to some of the songs. For anyone who has ever had a broken heart...this is the music to identify with. That every song here is a pop masterpiece with melody lines on a level with Beatle-era McCartney makes the commercial failure of this album even more perplexing. Forget the first two TT CD's...get Magnolia, get Mann's two solo discs, and GET THIS!

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe it took me so long to discover this gem! 7 Aug 2003
By eric_f - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must confess that, until recently, I fell into the category of people who mainly knew Til Tuesday's music by their hit song "Voices Carry" and a few other songs including "Coming Up Close." I also own their second album Welcome Home and I'm familiar with a lot of Aimee Mann's solo work as well. I even met her last year at an autograph signing. So I almost feel ashamed that I never heard of Everything's Different Now until recently when I came across these reviews. After reading all the glowing praises I felt compelled to pick myself up a copy, and after several listens of the entire album I'm absolutely hooked! I can't understand how this album didn't get the recognition and promotion it deserved. Perhaps the greatest tragedy is that many casual fans of Til Tuesday will continue to not know about this album and judge their merits as a band based on their more well-known work (which is certainly good in its own right but doesn't come close to being as good as this superb album).
Everything's Different Now has become among the very few albums I own in which I can say that I love every song. My personal favorites are "Rip In Heaven," "Why Must I," "Long Gone (Buddy)" and "Crash And Burn." But every song is catchy and filled with oustanding melodies and harmonies. The music just "fits" together so well and the consistency flows so smoothly from one song to another. Upon the very first listen one can tell that a lot of thought and effort was put into this album. I suppose some might be put off a little by the main theme of loss and breakup, but the way the music comes across is far from dreary or depressing. In fact one could say that this album will make you feel good, not only because the music is so great but because it offers an outlet for themes that most of us can relate to in some form.
So if you're a fan of Til Tuesday and/or Aimee Mann, or if you're just a fan of great music for that matter, you owe it to yourself to get this album. It's mature, well presented, has great lyrics, and is basically a fantastic listen. Most highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked masterpiece 16 Jun 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Til Tuesday are still best known for their 1985 hit single "Voices Carry." It was not a very interesting song, so naturally it was a big hit.
What followed that song and its debut album was far more compelling. The second album "Welcome Home" found the band coming into its own with much better songwriting, but it was this album, their third and final, that most deserves to be heard.
To put it bluntly, "Everything's Different Now" is one of the most intensely melodic albums ever made. A collection of ten love gone wrong songs, it is more than just another singer wearing his or her (in this case the later) hear on his her sleeve. The melodies are magnificent, the lyrics heartfelt, the vocals right on the mark.
Why this album was not a huge hit remains a mystery to this day. With Aimee Mann's solo career earning rave reviews (though as of yet not huge sales) it is time to discover this album if you have never heard it, or rediscover it if you have. Don't wait any longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most underrated album of the 90's! 19 Nov 2004
By Jon Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Seriously, this has to be the most underrated album of the 1990's! It is incredible to see how this band (and especially Aimee Mann) matured from their catchy but safe pop hit Voices Carry to songs like Rip in Heaven, Long Gone Buddy, The Other End of the Telescope, and virtually every other song on this CD. This CD is a true treasure and as many other folks have noted, the songs are timeless. Aimee Mann's vocals are so heartfelt and the lyrics are so clever, it's clear that this CD was ahead of its time. Do yourself a favor and buy this CD- you won't regret it!
