Aimee Mann

@#%&*! Smilers

2008-06-13

Aimee Mann : @#%&*! Smilers : SuperEgo Records Ms. Mann returns in good form with a collection of songs that we can no doubt chalk up on her musical fuselage, as they are classic Mann. Mixing elements of Americana, folk, and contemporary power pop, Aimee’s latest work, as well as the rest of it, should appeal to fans of Natalie Merchant, Paula Cole, Summerteeth-era Wilco, and Ryan Adams. The track “Looking for Nothing” is a fine starting point for the curious. Track 9 contains the word ‘bitch’. Reviewed by Trevor Edmonds : June 2008
