Best Folk Album: Mental Illness
Limited Edition Pink Vinyl LP Includes Die-Cut LP Cover!
Aimee Mann's first solo studio album in 5 years pressed on Limited Edition Pink Vinyl & housed in a die cut LP cover.
After originally breaking onto the music scene during the '80s leading the post-new wave pop group Til Tuesday, Aimee Mann has gone on to establish herself as one of the most distinguished singer-songwriters of her generation. Her successful solo career has spanned several decades with several Grammy nominations, one Grammy award and the release of seven critically acclaimed solo albums, including the profoundly popular soundtrack for the film Magnolia, which garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Song in 2000. Time magazine has said, "Mann has the same skill that great tunesmiths like McCartney and Neil Young have: the knack for writing simple, beautiful, instantly engaging songs," while NPR voted her one of the "TOP 10 Best Living Songwriters" along with Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen.
"By eschewing the lush instrumentation of some of her early solo records, Mann and producer Paul Bryan give Mental Illness an exceptionally spacious feel that works to her advantage and highlights Mann's melodiescontemplative, longing, vulnerableas well as her wordssolitary, reflective, honest." - Craig Dorfman, Paste Magazine
"Melancholy feels good sometimes, and with a voice as affecting and nuanced as Mann's, it's easy to get wrapped up in the drama. Songs like 'You Never Loved Me', 'Simple Fix', and 'Patient Zero' reel on by with poppy melodies that stick in your head long after you've tossed the vinyl back in its sleeve." - Michael Roffman, Consequence of Sound
