I found Aimee Mann after seeing her appear on an episode of Buffy and I was hooked on her music from then. I then discovered that she was in this band, Til Tuesday and it is so strange as her voice is almost unrecognisable. It is a real shame that this band have been so overlooked save for their hit single, Voices Carry, which appears on this album. However, this album contains so much more than that. Two other singles, Love in A Vacuum and Looking Over My Shoulder, have lyrics and music to match Voices Carry, and the beautiful ballad, You Know The Rest, has to be one of the crowning touches on the bands disparingly short carreer. The entire album fairly consistant in terms of quality, and varying in all kinds of styles of music, from the heavy synth tracks like 'Sleep,' to the more rock style, in 'Don't Watch Me Bleed.'

However, in the face of their follow-up albums, this is probably the least spectacular though by no means a bad record. I think the reason is because some tracks, I Could Get Used To This, Are You Serious to name a couple, are kind of a dance-filler track. If you like dance music, then this is probably the best record, but if you care more about musical substance, then Welcome Home and Everything's Different Now are probably better bets.

1985 was the year which marked a downturn in US talent assembling, and never, despite its supreme size, being anywhere near as vital,important or individual to music as the UK and Europe generally, it's main problem was music's antichrist itself-Madonna-queen of the untalented ushering in a new horrible decade of attention-seeking and slut-about-town exhibitionism geared for quick-grab financial reward and public recognition in lieu of any vocal, songwriting or any obvious talent beyond getting what you want cos you scream and suck loud and hard enough to do so, while cannily convincing a generation of Big Mac kids you have what they want. Then there's the other side of the business, the talent part that's supposed to actually drive it, and whilst America seemed almost done, 1985 gave us the Bangles breakthrough, Suzanne Vega, Voice Of The Beehive a few years later, and also, Aimee Mann and the rest of 'Til Tuesday.

Whilst the New Wave scene was presumably long over by 1985, America, always behind the times when it comes to other nation's talents, finally allowed itself to notice this outfit, but sadly, the only way they predictably did it was a showy video for MTV for the second single 'Voices Carry' (the first single 'Love In A Vacuum' was ignored, and remained so when it was re-released as the third and, sadly, final single) from the album of its hugest song's title. Already the label had stuck their oar in over the "controversy" of Mann singing such a song to a WOMAN instead of a man! God, America, but what can you expect? Cyndi Lauper, having just come to prominence herself apparently wanted the song (leaving the gender unchanged) but only if 'Til Tuesday weren't to include it on their album.

This is the first 'til Tuesday album, reissued with three bonus tracks. This was, by far, the weakest of the three 'til Tuesday albums, with inconsistent writing and a shrill, unpleasant sound. The reissue really does nothing to improve the sound, and obviously doesn't improve the writing. The reason this album is getting a reissue, of course, is that one of the best songs here, Voices Carry, was a huge hit in the prime MTV era, and is (deservedly) much beloved.

It's unfortunate that the second and third albums (Welcome Home and Everything's Different Now) haven't been granted the same attention, as those are better recorded, and are better collections of songs.

Anyway, back to this reissue. The three bonus tracks are single versions of album tracks, and are only modestly different than their album incarnations. Nothing to get excited about. I wish they'd included something a little more interesting, such as "Just Like Me", a song performed during the live shows in support of this album and which appeared on a video that MTV showed repeatedly. That's a great pop song, and it never appeared on any release (vinyl or CD).

Oh well.

Personally, I'd recommend getting the Coming Up Close compilation in lieu of this album, unless you're a big fan. And if you're a big fan, you probably already have this.

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.
