You've probably heard Aimee Mann's story a dozen times: how, after releasing albums on Geffen in the 90s You've probably heard Aimee Mann's story a dozen times: how, after releasing albums on Geffen in the 90s, she quickly became dissatisfied with the label's treatment of her records, and soon decided to buy back the tapes for her third full-length, Bachelor No. Just another long-haul pop talent that the majors have signed and then foolishly refused to make time for. So we can all root for her success story: she managed to move , copies of Bachelor No. The story of her business life is worth retelling because it's so close to the themes of her songwriting: she hits bad times, but never mires herself in them. And it's easy to see why P. Anderson wrote his film Magnolia loosely around her songs: she understands the people who struggle through their work and love lives on the fringes of show business. As an industry veteran she seems to have learned to turn the highs and lows into a day-to-day routine, and in that spirit, she's learned to explore the most depressing themes while transcending the self-pity so associated with lovesick laments. Lost in Space is the first album Mann has made solely under her own guidance and for her own label. And as with all her work, the craftsmanship is impeccable-- three- or four-minute pop songs with arching, lilting melodies, and arrangements where every detail is in place, from the succinct but grinding guitar solos, to the subtle keyboards and embellishments that back her up.

Lost In Space
The front door slams shut behind you, the sound echoing throughout the empty apartment. It's quiet except for the sound of rain outside the window. Your keys clink as they land on the table; you put a fresh pot of coffee on. An unread newspaper -- its news now a day old -- sits nearby. You flop on the couch exhausted, with a cup of coffee to read the paper, its predictability somehow comfortable. The above setting doesn't so much describe the lyrics or music of Lost in Space , Aimee Mann's fourth studio album, as much as it describes how it feels. Warm, familiar, predictable, comfortable. There are no surprises here, just what we've come to expect. While Aimee Mann dished out excellent two power-poppy discs of alt-rock early in her career, the public failed to pay attention. Of course that led to the requisite movie-of-the-week style bitter record company battles They wouldn't release her album!
A special edition released in featured a second disc containing six live recordings, two B-sides and two previously unreleased songs. The cover and accompanying mini-comic were drawn by Canadian cartoonist Seth. Lost in Space holds a score of 74 out of from Metacritic , indicating "generally favorable reviews". Other reviews are very average or mixed: Trouser Press gave it an average review and said of Mann, "The songs are not as strong overall as on her previous albums, and the tempo neither flags nor picks up over the course of the album. Takes talent to make that more boring than solo acoustic, no? All songs written by Aimee Mann , unless otherwise noted.
