This review is from: Bachelor No. 2 Or The Last Remains Of The Dodo (Audio CD)
"Bachelor No. 2" is without doubt a brilliant collection of mesmerising tunes that stay with you through the day and make you want to return for more. In places the sound reminded me of the Beatles, and her voice does have that special quality that makes you hang on every note.
"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!
