Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dividing her time between waging war on the music industry and writing sublime pop songs, Aimee Mann shows on her fourth solo album that she is equally adept at both. "Let's hear it for guys like me," she sings over the lilting rhythms and stylish guitar work of "Guys Like Me." Her case for toppling the corporate structure is airtight; just check her Web site for the latest bulletin. Her music, meanwhile, keeps getting better. The success of the Magnolia soundtrack may have restored her confidence following the record company strife that followed her first two solo releases--Whatever and I'm With Stupid--but the wounds have not healed. "All the perfect drugs and superheroes wouldn't be enough to bring me up to zero," the former 'Til Tuesday singer imparts over the layered, lush tones of the opening "Humpty Dumpty." Meanwhile, on the emotionally distressed "It's Not," she muses over a forlorn 16-piece string section, "I keep waiting for a change but I don't know for what." It could be the prettiest, most polite battle cry ever. --Aidin Vaziri

Format:Audio CD
Of all of Aimee Mann's solo albums, I find I keep returning to Lost In Space. Combining crafty lyrics, understated vocals, and moody, haunting instrumentals, Mann dares us to look through a window into a house of problematic characters. Each of the songs takes us into another room, each with it's own set of ghosts. Aimee has effectively gotten into the heads of imaginary people and taken us along with her. You'll find that when you get there, however,these people will have striking resemblances to some you already know--or even, sometimes, yourself.
Although short in length, you might find it hard to skip any of these songs. Each is an expertly crafted tale that fits nicely into the larger work--each song flowing into the next very smoothly. Nothing seems out of place or ill-fitting in this CD.
Overall, Aimee's song-writing skills shine on this album. The instrumentation is sublime with a heavy emphasis on acoustic guitar. The emotions are flawlessly conveyed by Aimee's unusual yet candid vocals. I would highly recommend this CD to anyone wanting to add quality music to their collection--you might be surprised by what you can find drifting in space.

4.0 out of 5 stars aimee has found her place Jan. 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i heard of aimee mann when i was 15, my mom had her ultimate collection. unlike that compilation of catchy hits, lost in space flows as an album, which is very important. some songs are reminiscent of shawn colvin (which to me sound like subtle fillers, and work) others carry the energy of the beatles, like humpty dumpty, guys like me, and pavlov's bell. however the most poignant lyrics lie on the slow songs like today's the day, the moth, and it's not. i respect all of her work, however this the album to start off with for aimee mann, she has grown so much as a songwriter. lost in space is inspiring, an enlightenment from an artist who has journeyed through so much tribulation and at this point she accepts it, uses it to drive her songs. if an album can make me ramble in praise for this long, believe me, it is worth buying (and listening to free on her site.)
p.s. i recommend you listen to "humpty dumpty" with the following chorus:
"better take the KiSS
and drive forever."
somehow it makes me relate more

5.0 out of 5 stars pleasantly lost Dec 24 2003
Format:Audio CD
With all her record label troubles, could Aimee Mann get any darker? Lost In Space answers that question with a resounding "Yes." Much has already been written about Aimee's music industry problems as she was shuffled around from record company to record company, each one refusing to put out what would later become one of her most successful albums, Bachelor No. 2. Prior to the release of Bachelor No. 2 on her own record label (SuperEgo Records ... surely the joke is lost on no one) and her reappearance in the public eye with the success of the film Magnolia, its soundtrack and her resulting Oscar nomination, Aimee and her husband Michael Penn, also a critically revered musician who's had his share of label frustrations, toured relentlessly.
Previously much of Aimee's lyrical content detailed troubled relationships between individuals, providing interpretations that the characters involved could be lovers or business associates (again, with the record company issues). Lost In Space strays from this as Aimee's pen ventures into the topics of love, addiction, and their resultant aftermath of desperation. Musically, Space is much darker than her previous efforts - not as jaunty as Whatever, less fuzz than I'm With Stupid, without the reemergent spirit of Bachelor No. 2. Lead-off track and first single, "Humpty Dumpty," demonstrates the lyrical mix predominant on Space as the addiction in "All the perfect drugs / and superheroes / wouldn't be enough / to bring me up to zero" leads into the bridge of desperation, "Get out while you can / baby I'm pouring quicksand / and sinking is all I had planned" as producer Michael Lockwood's slide guitar and chamberlain blend to create a sound the emotional equivalent of moving forward while standing in place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality Offered Casually Dec 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
Sometime in the middle of last year, Aimee Mann released her fourth studio solo album, Lost In Space. It kinda came out of nowhere, since I expected another big creative lapse between the modern work of art that was Bachelor No 2 and this; that record was the finest release of her career, and also the finest release of the new millenium. So Lost In Space, the followup, comes across as more unassuming. She brings new layers of music, new sublime sounds (whereas Bachelor No. 2 was more traditional piano and guitar with lively sound effects) that give this record a darker tone, and she comes out with a nice, modest effort that nonetheless still stands out among the first of the pack. One of 2002's best albums.
The themes are still feelings of sadness, despair, and addiction. In a way, the "downs" feel more intense (Humpty Dumpty) than anything that was heart-wrenching in previous records. Also noticed in Aimee's work is that sometimes she adapts a counselor role in a song, designed for her listeners (in previous records songs like Wise Up or You Do); here it's Real Bad News, which as its title implies is just such the case. No consolation offered. Reality is demure, some avenues just aren't open to some, and it's true. I give Aimee Mann kudos for being so straight-forward in her music, unafraid of criticism for it.
Songs I particularly liked: Pavlov's Bell, employing some of Aimee's accustomed brilliant metaphores, The Moth, and in particular, Today Is The Day, which have a very intergalactic impression based on the lazy, moon defying tone. This second song was featured in the prepostruous film, "Enough" starring the prepostruous superstar J-Lo. I ran across this on that film's soundtrack page. "The movie sucked, but there was this one song in the background that was so beautiful. I looked for the soundtrack, but it was just a score. I just tracked it down. It's Aimee Mann and it's on her CD "Lost In Space." It's here!
