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!!!
