4.0 out of 5 stars young talent unfolding her petals, 9 Feb 2009
This review is from: Voices Carry (Audio CD)
The elusive elfin-like Aimee Mann has a godgiven talent for writing memorable melodies with transcendent refrains that tingle the spine and set the soul flying. This is her very fine and promising debut that more than hints at the greater things yet to come.

Here are certainly all the elements that makes her music so wonderful and intriguing, the choruses in "Looking Over My Shoulder" and "You Know The Rest", hear it once and you are hooked forever. It also includes what is, surprisingly, her only real bona-fide hit "Voices Carry" with vocal-inflictions very reminiscent
of the deliciuos Dale Bozzio (Missing Persons).

The lyrics are - as an Aimee fan would suspect - mostly about the sweet sadness of broken hearts and smouldered love affairs. The music is rather new wave/pop, with the synths of Michael Montes very dominating and with an anonymous John Taylor sounding session bassplayer and havn't perhaps stood the test of time as well as Aimee's songs.

A must for all fans of the beauty of wellcrafted Songs.
