Product Description

Amazon.ca

Bachelor No. 2 is the product of a woman whose 40th birthday looms months ahead, and it illustrates how a little seasoning has paid off creatively for Aimee Mann. Always an incisive lyricist, the eloquent singer/songwriter further hones her wordplay to a razor-sharp edge. Her subjects are so adroitly sliced and diced that little blood is shed, though they're permanently cut down to size. "Calling It Quits" targets some cad who is "numbering himself among the masterminds 'cause he's hit upon the leverage of valentines". Not that Mann spares herself from a steely assessment: "I know I had it coming / From a Caesar who was only slumming" she admits in "The Fall of the World's Own Optimist". Though this 13-track collection borrows three songs from its immediate predecessor, Mann's soundtrack to Magnolia, its musical ingenuity and consistency (notable considering five different production teams are credited here) make the scattered redundancies irrelevant. Mann's artistic growth has been evident with each new release, and Bachelor marks her biggest leap forward to date. --Steven Stolder

5.0 out of 5 stars Aimme Mann is Brilliant! March 12 2008
Format:Audio CD
I don't normally gush over singers, but Aimee Mann is worth owning. I was introduced to her work by the film Magnolia, and went on a downloading binge from there. There are real gems throughout her entire body of work. You'll be driving along, and suddenly a line that you've heard again and again will strike you as something new and wonderful and insightful. On this album, the song 'Calling it Quits', 'It Takes all Kinds' and 'How am I Different' are particularly striking. Since downloading her music, I've made a point of not only purchasing the albums, but buying them for friends. All have become fans. The album 'The Forgotten Arm' is incredible, as is Bachelor No. 2. Treat yourself and give both of them a listen. She also has an excellent podcast from her website. Here I am 'pouring out praise like a true believer'...which is a word away from an Aimee Mann lyric. Great stuff. You won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound but NOT 5.1 April 12 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a fabulous disc, one that you'll be listening to 10 years from now. The SACD stereo sound quality is superb, however the hybrid SACD is a STEREO ONLY, not 5.1 mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars helps us get through Jan. 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i'm going through hi school, which as everyone says is a hard time in different ways for each person. but aimee's album, both melancholy and uplifiting, one can use to control a mood, surprise, awaken. not only are the lyrics original and catchy, the arrangements are her most creative. this album inspires me to write songs quickly. to try to make up the day-changing tunes like those that she leaves behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's good medicine Dec 18 2003
By Katy
Format:Audio CD
It's my belief that if everyone owned a copy of Aimee Mann's "Bachelor no. 2" this world would be a much more peaceful place. This is my feel-good album. Seriously, I went through a really awful depression a couple of years back and when I would listen to this album it was like a ray of sunshine. It's a sonic antidepressant. Works better than anything the doctor can prescribe to you.
Something about the combination of the music, and the lyrics, and Aimee's voice. It's golden. Buy buy buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aimee's Finest Album to Date..... Nov. 3 2003
Format:Audio CD
Possibly not yet a household name, but her albums have long since been many a critics favourite. (She also wrote several songs for the 'Tom Cruise' film "Magnolia"), but with a stripped-down delicate direct sound, with mainly strumming Guitars & simple chord keyboard playing, its hard to not to fall in love with her voice, as its certainly reflective, touching on the complexities of relationships & emotions, not to dissimilar to someone like "Sheryl Crow" in her more sombre/Downbeat songs (Yet Aimee's songwriting is far more advanced than Sheryl's), and a blissfully unassuming record, that provides emotional attachment, to anyone committed to giving her intimately focused music a chance.

3.0 out of 5 stars I must be defective or this is not a great CD July 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
I'm really trying here. I bought Lost in Space, which I really do prefer to this CD and even got the TT compliation and then I got this CD out again which someone gave me. I have listened to it on the speakers and on the headphones and in the car. Either I am defective or there just is not really anything here to really hold on to. Pleasant enough to listen to as backround music as it is always slow, only the lyrics stand out as actually worth listening to and after once you really just think poor little Aimee. . . Nice packaging without landfill busting plastic - I am really trying. Makes Lost in Space look alot better. No pictures of Aimee anywhere on it - that's good and bad. Bottom line - save your money unless you are a great devotee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Longtime Fan May 6 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This cd is a must for those who have followed Aimee Mann since here Til' Tuesday days (like myself), and for those who desire to explore something new and different and appreciate meaningful songwriting. Aimee's songs will leave you with something to think about, especially the very first track, AWESOME TRACK!!
