Performance:   Sonics:
Last year I heard Aimee Mann’s Lost In Space for the first time and I found myself completely mesmerized by its sound, production, and lyrical genesis. A very short time span has passed since then and now Mobile Fidelity appropriately honors the release with the issue of this Ultra High Resolution SACD formatted disc. If you look at the album credits, it is obvious a lot of time and effort went into making this a fabulous production.

I felt the sound was already excellent but now it is unbelievable! Every detail and understated tone is detectable like never before. The album has reached another level of quality and sonics through the Mobile Fidelity UHR processing model.

As I related in my first review, I feel this album is Mann’s best work to date. Her message is clear and intent focused, both musically and lyrically. You cannot be more straightforward than this line from “Real Bad News” -Take your chances but buyer beware. She seems to be forewarning a lover or entity (possibly a record label or some corporate entity?). “Pavlov’s Bell” is the catchiest most melodic track on the entire album and never has been as prolific as it is now. Every song takes on an entirely different character and meaning after hearing it in this format. If you have not purchased this CD, make certain you get this version, if you have the old copy ditch it because this one will blow you away.

Wow, that's all I can say about this album. It's both musically and sonically stunning. Like so many artist I have bought since I started my SACD collection I really didn't know anything about Aimee Mann. After I saw this was a MOFI release I went to Amazon.com to listen to some soundbites, even thought I wasn't to impressed I bought the disc. And it is one of the best titles I own on SACD. This is a great record and MOFI has done a wonderful job, in my opinion a must buy!

Got the album based on the above excellent reviews and I was quite dissapointed by the music. Bland and boring compositions, average vocal skills... Strong recommandation to listen before you buy
