    Under appreciated

    While I understand the desire to compare earlier albums from artists to their current efforts, it doesn't allow opinions to be formed based solely on the true quality of the current release. I admit that at first listen, I didn't think that this album from this extremely talented artist was comparable to earlier efforts like Bachelor No. 2 in particular. After allowing the tunes on this album to truly sink in based on multiple listenings, I now believe that this is Aimee's strongest effort to date. The complexity and depth of her music puts her in very limited company as compared to her current peers. These songs just continue to gain strength after every listen and if you are moved at all by Aimee's music, pick up this CD because it really is one of the best releases of 2008.

    Absolutely love it

    I love Aimee Mann. Her music is so honest and good. I just want more and more music from her. Would love to see her live.

    SOUL SAVING

    I needed this record. Aimee Mann is the best singer/songwriter of my generation. The way in which she crafts lyrics and weaves her tales is at one moment heart-wrenching and the next moment bliss. Her songs unfold like intricate puzzles, discovering something new w/ each subsequent listen. I love this woman! To shy away from the ugly pop untalented spectable of the music business today only adds to her credibility as one of a limited pool of great artists who exudes a unique gift for which I and countless others are grateful.

    Powerful, Respledent!!!

    Aimee Mann is the best songwriter! Subtle, striking and to the point. This record will not disappoint. Haunting voice, crafty and sometimes witty, Ms Mann is timeless.

    @#%&*! Smilers is a gem

    It's wonderful that both radio and the music press have embraced Aimee Mann's latest full-length gem, "@#%&! Smilers." The disc sounds great with a single listen, and the wealth and range of the songs only grows stronger with subsequent sonic journeys. From the infectious pop-rock of "Freeway" and "Looking for Nothing" to the haunting "Stranger Into Starman" and sparse "Great Beyond," Mann's voice conjures up all kinds of emotional magic that benefits from equally-compelling arrangements.
