I loved this CD, period. The songs that form the actual content of this CD are catchy, intelligent, sensitive yet upbeat, melodic, and generally ear-friendly. After much consideration, I prefer the more upbeat songs on this album to the more mellow music on older and newer albums. I love "That's Just What You Are," and hearing her sweet, ironic vocals as she plays great guitar and bass on many songs here. I've listened to this CD over and over again and have made copies for grateful friends. This album directly made her my favorite female pop vocalist - over and above other newer female singers. I love the variety in it, it has "Voices Carry" with Til Tuesday and songs without the band, what more could you want. This is a great Aimee Mann primer. "Lost in Space" is really good to listen to as well, though just not as upbeat.
