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

5.0 out of 5 stars The peculiar beauty of depression-Lost In Space May 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
From the opener to the closer it beomces apparent that Aimee Mann's "Lost In Space" is no joyride. This is, without a doubt, one of the most somber, sad and depressing albums I've ever heard. Her lazy yet meticulous style of singing and tone merge well with the harrowing music, spare and intricate instrumentation as well as the introspective and cryptic lyrics to create the fascinating study of depression, addiction and isolation. Aimee throws out lines like "You might think that things might change, but take my word, they won't" as if to say, so how does it make you feel, cause its sure killing me. She packs so much beautiful pain into these eleven songs it puts so many other albums to shame. Many times, one must wonder, can such a painful feeling as misery produce anything good? And the anwser is yes, Aimee Mann's "Lost In Space."

5.0 out of 5 stars driving music for long lonely highways March 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
ok, i'll admit it, the first thing that caught my attention was the very cool cover art (there's a lot more inside by the way) so I thought I'd give it a chance. It paid off in many ways. The songs all work on many levels and while you might not like all of them they all have something to say and take you through a naritive landscape by a very gifted artist.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss Me Like a Respirator March 11 2004
By tanasii
Format:Audio CD
This Super Audio CD version from Mobile Fidelity contains a regular stereo CD layer and a stereo SACD layer. The sound of the SACD layer is simply fantastic. There is not a hint of grain, sharpness or other fatiguing factors normally associated with regular CD PCM digital playback. This allows you to really crank up the volume without feeling assaulted. The bass has depth and Aimee's voice comes out and surrounds you. The care and time spent in the crafting of this recording is obvious from start to finish and Mobile Fidelity has done a masterful remastering job. The music is melodious and the lyrics are as thoughtful, insightful and lovely as any I have heard. A 45 minute fall into the dream of the astronaut.

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

Aimee Mann is like fine wine, she just keeps getting better. Lost In Space is a haunting, melodic album full of evocative, lyrically brilliant songs that stick with you long after you've turned off the CD player. Every single one of Aimee's albums is different, and amazing in their own right. "Guys Like Me" is one of my favorite songs of all time, and the gorgeously heartbreaking ballad "It's Not" is the song that inspired me to try to learn the acoustic guitar. (Although I failed miserably...) No one can write lyrics like Aimee, who produces epic novels in each song. The meaning and emotion she brings to the table is unequaled in music today. Listening to an entire Aimee Mann album all the way through is a truly beautiful experience. If you're not familiar with her Worship, you're truly missing out on an exceptional musical talent.
