This is a small set-back from Aimee's fantastic debut album, Whatever. The great thing is that it contains a set of stunningly strong tracks but the mood of the album starts to become quite gloomy, which can be a little overbearing if you are listening to it entirely.
The majority of the lyrics are quite bitter and defeatest, especially in tracks like All Over Now, Par For The Course and You're With Stupid Now. It seems as though Mann has given up and given her struggles at the time, one can hardly blame her.
It really creates a gloomy mood over the album, which otherwise does have a lot of standout songs, Frankenstien, That's Just What You Are, Choice In The Matter among them. Even the gloomy tracks are quite strong set apart from the album, particularly the title track, which has some incredibly witty Lyrics from Mann.
This album certainly doesn't rock as much as Mann's first album, it is a lot mellower and more pop oreientated, not that this is a bad thing, for Aimee Mann's pop has always been crafted for an intellegent audience rather than the average teenager.
