Aimee Mann is one of the most underrated and overlooked singer/songwriters today. She always had a wit and cynicism to her music. I loved Aimee in Til Tuesday. She always had a knack for writing the catchiest pop melodies. As a solo artist, she never lost that ability. Her songwriting however became wittier and cynical which is a good thing to me. "Whatever" is my favorite Aimee Mann cd. "Bachelor No.3" was excellent as well. I haven't heard Aimee's latest album "Lost in Space" yet but I do want to get it since she covers my favorite Coldplay song on the new version of "Lost in Space". "I'm With Stupid" is probably Aimee's weakest solo album I have heard though. A lot of the songs just didn't strike a chord with me. It isn't that I didn't like them but they just didn't stick out in my head except for songs like "Amateur" (a beautiful piano ballad), "All Over Now", It's Not Safe", andthe single "That's Just What You Are". The production value on "I'm With Stupid" is excellent though. Although I don't consider "I'm With Stupid" to be one of Aimee's stronger works, it is still a good solid album.

I am one of those people for whom lyrics matter more than the music. Both harmoniously coupling to make beautiful music is great, but if given the choice, I choose lyrics. Aimee Mann is a lyrical genius... intellectual, clever, poetic, singing some of the most touching, surprising lyrics of any songwriter writing today. And why isn't Aimee a household name? Okay, record-company greed and Aimee's unfailing loyalty to herself and her artistic vision play their roles here... But I guess Aimee is not a household name also because her lyrics are a little bit intimidating to many people. Maybe too literate, maybe too incisive. However, this is why her most ardent fans love her music so much.
I'm With Stupid was fresh, rough, biting, witty, sarcastic, and heartfelt all at once. It still is... its effects have not dulled with time (and admittedly, for me, overplay!) Mann is gifted with making you nod in agreement with her while feeling like you are walking across gravel barefoot. She has a unique voice coupled with an aggressive style (on this album; toned down hereafter in her songs on the Magnolia soundtrack and in Bachelor #2).
One reviewer wrote that you cannot sing along with these songs... cannot listen to them in the car... and for me, this simply isn't true. All the songs are catchy; all of the songs get stuck in my head... and I sing along (in the car) all the time. It is all a matter of taste, yes. I am a fan of other contemporary female performers, and I believe Aimee Mann to be the best of them all.
"There is nothing that competes with habit,/And I know it's not that deep nor tragic.../simply that you have to have it" Mann sings in the bitter ballad "You Could Make a Killing".

This record is a masterpiece production. First, Aimee Mann's voice is crisp and clear, and seemingly unprocessed, it stands a little higher in the mix than most artists - but it works for her. Perhaps the reason it works so well is that her lyrics are fantastic, and they deserve to be heard.
The record follows the style of her previous release "Whatever", which also followed the style of Til Tuesday's final release "Everything's Different Now" (which could have more aptly been referred to as the first solo Aimee Mann record, because of it's stylistic divergence from previous Til Tuesday work).
Whereas "Whatever" was very polished and Beatles-influenced, "I'm With Stupid Now" intentionally takes a bit of the polish off. The recording and production is still stellar, but this time there are a lot of special effects, and subtleties put in, which give the album a feel of cohesiveness whereas "Whatever" may have seemed a little more sterile. In one track, there is actually the scratching of an old LP record mixed in quietly to the song (Amateur).
One of the strongest tracks on the song are "It's Not Safe", which is ironically the final song. In an age where artists often stack a record with the best 3 or 4 tracks up front, often followed by filler material, this stands as another example of Aimee Mann's bucking the system (another example being that the lyrics for this record are printed on the inside cover - in alphabetical order, word by word! So she has a sense of humor as well). "It's Not Safe" stands out in all aspects, but primarily the lyrics which discuss the topic of trying to be a good person in an inherently messed-up world.

Having all Aimee's 'Til Tuesday CDs, I continued on with her solo stuff a few years ago when I purchased "Whatever"...which is an absolutely great CD. I recently purchased "I'm With Stupid", hoping that it would pick up where "Whatever" left off. Boy, was I wrong! Don't get me wrong...I love Aimee's music and her golden voice, but this is definitely her weakest effort. Without getting into boring specifics, the songs are all slower and rely more on the complex lyrics, rather than the combination of lyrics and sound, to grab your attention. The production is raw and unpolished...lacking Aimee's gorgeous layered vocals and sounding more like she recorded it in her garage! Unlike the later 'Til Tuesday stuff and "Whatever", not one of the songs on "Im With Stupid" stuck in my head. It lacks the many "hooks", "bouncy" tunes and gorgeous slower songs that really stay with you. Be that as it may, the mainstream female pop vocalists of today (Brittany, Christina, Alanis, Cheryl) still can't carry Aimee's shoes!!!
