Bachelor #2

By David Kenney

"At least you know, you were taken by a pro," Aimee Mann sings in "Driving Sideways." Not only does she take you, but she spoon feeds you delicious melodies and soul-quenching lyrics on Bachelor #2. The former ‘Til Tuesday vocalist winds her melodramatic vocals around seemingly harmless songs that bore beneath the skin to hurt you. Mann’s Magnolia showings reminded the music world of her wit, angst and lyrical prowess. On Bachelor #2, Mann reminds you of all the hurt and spite of a break-up, complete with the last word.
