not as charmed as hoped,
This review is from: Charmer (Audio CD)
Aimee Mann's albums all have the same core ingredients and that is what keeps her fans coming back for more. pop tunes, cutting lyrics and that slight air of melancholy are a winning formula - but sometimes they just feel formulaic and that's the problem with Charmer. It has been a long time coming and offers nothing new though the title track is a gem. That Charmer comes in at under 39 minutes feels like a bit of a con. When I want to listen to Aimee Mann this won't be the cd that I pick up. That'll be The Forgotten Arm.
