I came to this album by an odd route - a good review in Q Magazine plus a nagging suspicion I'd seen the name somewhere before. Couldn't retrieve the source until after I'd bought the album, then suddenly...Yes! It was the woman I'd last heard singing haunting backing vocals on "Time Stand Still" by...Rush. WHAT?!! This is not usually thought of as a good career move by sensitive female singer/songwriters, but there's a great deal more to Aimee Mann than that. This album is an extraordinarily diverse brew of delicate ballads and bursts of wonderfully crunchy rock. How to describe? Well, let me put it this way. Although she sounds nothing like Del Amitri (being female, American and critically acclaimed), she somehow shares a kinship with them. Her songs tend toward introspective tales of doomed relationships sung in a breathy, breathtaking voice over delicious, rousing melodies that you simply cannot get out of your head. And just when all the relationship disasters might start to get a little too much, just when you find yourself thinking "Oh for goodness' sake, woman, find yourself a decent man for a change" she does exactly that with "Mr Harris", which is simply one of the sweetest, most un-cynical songs I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.
Oh, by the way, she's amazing live.

I brought this album because I loved the Magnolia soundtrack! Now I love this album too!
She has got a very distinctive sound, and the lyrics within her songs are very thoughtful.
If you liked the Magnolia soundtrack, you'll love this.
If you haven't heard of Aimee Mann before have a listen, you'll be singing along before you know it!

5.0 out of 5 stars just brilliant 10 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I can't understand why Aimee Mann hasn't been majorly successful in Britain - this album is one of my favourites ever, with such wonderful tunes and clever, funny, insightful and sensitive lyrics. And if this makes her sound sugarly and girlie, she isn't - she does rawk, but in a truly individual way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb power pop with biting lyrics 22 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
Formerly the vocalist with briefly-fashionable pop-rockers Till Tuesday, Aimee Mann disappeared from circulation for a few years and re-surfaced as a solo artist with this stunning debut. That one is put in mind of the vocals of Colin Blunstone and the music and words of Elvis Costello is a tribute to the sheer quality of this album -- fiercely intelligent songs documenting a deeply individualistic view of the world, delivered in a powerful yet intimate voice. Possibly just a little over-produced, but has far more sublime moments per minute than almost any other album I own. "Jacob Marley's Chain" and "Fifty Years After The Fair" are achingly brilliant.
Buy this, then get hold of Bachelor #2, I'm With Stupid, and the Magnolia soundtrack. You won't regret any of them.

Aimees's voice is somewhere between Karen Carpenter and Krissie Hynde. The tunes are melodic and pleasant on the ear. Saw her live in UK in 1996, great show, cant wait 'tll aimee comes to UK again. Buy this CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Jacob Marleys Chain 25 April 2014
Format:Audio CD
At a time when I had virtually given up hearing anything decent the music industry could grab my attention with, I happened to be walking past my local record store only to hear this album playing and not only did I buy the then cassette,it revived and restored my faith that there are musicians out there who can actually write tuneful and memorable songs.This album is and all time favourite with me for not only the songwriting skills of Aimee Mann but the beautiful arrangements and production from Jon Brion.This album is an absolute classic and anyone remotely interested in music needs to give this gem of an album a serious listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great record....and a bit of Byrds magic!...... 13 July 2009
Format:Audio CD
I bought this album after reading a review where it mentioned that Roger McGuinn played and sang on it..had no idea who Aimee was but sometimes you take a chance
I wasn't dissapointed..it's a great album from start to finish...not a turkey in sight!...a few days after i bought it i found a Til Tuesday album in a charity shop...must be fate...bought all her music since then

Now replaced my well worn...vinyl...original with this reissue

3.0 out of 5 stars OK
A great voice, good lyrics and some nice songs but nothing that really grabs you. I've also got 'The Forgotten Arm' which is a much beter album.
