This album was released on SACD in the early noughties by Mobile Fidelity, quite soon after its initial release on CD in what I suspect was an attempt to support the SACD format as also relevant to contemporary albums.

Sadly, this effort died a fairly quick death. So this is one of only a handful of contemporary (at the time) albums also issued on SACD.

Aimee Mann is a wonderful artist and though I favour her two previous solo albums and the last Til' Tuesday album above this one it is still a wonderful album.

She had found true love with Michael Penn by this stage. Consequently the sharpness of her lyrics and her mordant humour had softened somewhat when she got to making this album.

Doing the poor struggling Indie artist thing does not allow for much money to be spent in the recording studio. In this case we have that fairly typical, not quite Hi Fi, indie sound.

So the separation of elements in the mix is not top notch and post recording embellishments minimal.

This suits the material and the performer though. The disc has a good, warm if slightly foggy organic sounding presentation.

This disc is very much worth getting and if you like it head for her earlier stuff as well.
