Product Description

Product Description

The powerful and provocative new film from Boogie Nights writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson is Magnolia, a drama starring William H. Macy, Julianne Moore, Jason Robards and Tom Cruise. The soundtrack album features eight new songs from critically acclaimed and often provocative singer-songwriter Aimee Mann, including the first single, "Save Me." Also featured are two Supertramp '70s hits and Mann's cover of Three Dog Night's '60s classic "One." Certified Gold by the RIAA. (2/01)

Amazon.ca

The much anticipated follow-up to Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights, Magnolia features a specially orchestrated soundtrack, largely written and performed by Aimee Mann ('Til Tuesday member and sadly overlooked solo artist). Mann's voice has always been a suitable vehicle for conveying emotional turmoil and indelible sadness, and several tracks here ("Build That Wall", "You Do", "Driving Sideways") do so with the rich melodicism that informs her best work. Producer Jon Brion's sprightly horn arrangements for "Momentum" are an unexpected (though not completely unwelcome) splash of cold water. Only Mann's cover of the Harry Nilsson-penned Three Dog Night hit "One" backfires, as it simply doesn't deliver the same effective climax as the original. The two Supertramp tracks from their Breakfast in America LP tacked on at album's end are incongruous; but for anyone with an interest in Mann's melodic song writing, there are eight worthy originals waiting for you. --Rob O'Connor

Had this been a collection of entirely Aimee Mann songs it would merit 5 stars. "Build That Wall," an instrumental "Nothing Is Good Enough," and especially "Save Me" (specially featured in the movie, just as it should be).. they're simply beautiful. I wasn't even surprised to learn that Magnolia the movie was based on Aimee's songs, and not vice versa. Everything fits perfectly.. right up until track 10. Her cover of Harry Nilsson's "One" isn't too good either, but it's easy enough to start at track 2 as I always do. It's easy to name a couple other groups that might have fit on the soundtrack without destroying the mood (and quality) of the album, but Supertramp?? Gabrielle? We get eight wonderfully crafted songs with Aimee's beautiful voice in top form, followed by two 70s 'hits' that should have quietly died, and a generic 90s pop song that no one will want to remember in a year or two. Jon Brion's closing track belongs with Aimee's material (why not have each of them contribute half the soundtrack?), but I normally end up hitting Stop after "Save Me" instead of skipping forward to the end. Hey, if you like Supertramp you may like the whole thing.. but the flow is still ruined. If you like Aimee it's still worth the price despite the nuisances. If you're not familiar with her (shame..) this is a good place to start.

Now pushing 40 with one of the worst-luck careers in recent memory (dumped by 3 record labels), she really outdoes herself on this soundtrack CD. You could say I'm a fan--I own all 3 'til tuesday albums, their collection, both and Mann solos (93's "Whatever" being one of the best records in history. Period.) In my opinion there is NO better female voice in pop/rock, and she sounds better than ever here. Not only did I purposely catch the movie on one of the best-sounding screens in the area (and rewarded immensely when her voice kicked for "One", but at 2am afterwards, I went to hunt down this incredible memoir to the film. Thank God to Paul Anderson for finally getting her some exposure. I like Supertramp and especially the two songs tacked on here but this is Mann's moment and she and Jon Brion (her longtime musical partner) shine as bright as ever. Reprise...hear that incredible talent? Give her a chance! If it's weren't for rip-off sites like Napster, the companies could spend money on actually promoting the ARTISTS! If I see an Aimee Mann song show up on that site from the ST, I gonna cyber-kill someone. Go see this movie and buy the incredible Soundtrack to go with it!

This is easily one of my favorite albums of 1999. The nine tracks laid down by Aimee Mann (AM) are superlative. Her voice is the perfect vehicle for the subject matter she tackles here. I have always been a been a minor AM fan, although she has never been near the top of my list of favorites, but this definitely moves her up a few notches in my book. I have to admit, I was very skeptical of seeing her tackle "One," but the results are tremendous. "Build that Wall" an "Driving Sideways" are infectious tunes that will reel you in after only a few listenings. My favorite track, however, is "Deathly," a powerful song that builds to a fevered pitch, allowing AM to showcase her superb talents. As far the final four tracks (all non-AM cuts), the are a nice bonus, but the nine AM songs stand on their own as her best work to date. Top 10 of 1999!

"Now that I've met you/would you object to/never meeting each other again". Opening lines don't get much better than that one from "Deathly". This is my first Aimee Mann album (I know it's a soundtrack, but basically it's an Aimee Mann album), and it is a very good album. The music is melodic and rich and sets a mood throughout the album. Mann's voice is rich and emotion filled, making it a worthy listen. I actually liked the "One" cover. However, Supertramp and Gabrielle weaken the album (they belong because they were in the movie and this is a soundtrack). However, don't let these songs stop you from listening to the last song on the disc, "Magnolia" by Jon Brion.
I would also recommend that if you like the album, especially the final song, go check out jonbrion dot com and his album meaningless. Amazon does not carry it yet.

Well, what can I say? I got the chance to see the movie and listen to the soundtrack a few days ago because here in Brazil takes a while to enter a good movie as this one, altough the movie have 3 hours long, i didn't felt tired watching it becouse of the amazing story, incredible soundtrack and memorable acting. I'm not surprised that the movie got an Oscar nomination for Aimee Mann, well her voice and lyrics are just amazing also i'm not surprised that P.T. Anderson based a part of the script on Aimee lyrics. The movie shows how people are fragile and what happens to these people when their lives are about to fall apart and the soundtracks shows the exact same thing. I'm still amazed how the movie and soundtrack touched me me. Buy the soundtrack(which I listen everyday) I promise you won't regret later.
