Music: Lost in Space by Aimee Mann

Preface: Happy Inaugural Day! Sammi is busy celebrating while Maggie is sulking in the corner with her GOP engraved bone collection.

This album, pilfered from our Aunt Jocie's collection, is warm and delicate. Aimee Mann sings to a background of trumpets, acoustic guitar, and occasionally violins. She reminds us of country-esque Sarah McLachlan mixed with Brandi Carlisle and a great-sounding band in the background. Her lyrics are honest and raw, and her voice and musical stylings sound good. We've been enjoying her lately, and recommend you give her a listen!

"Say you were split,
You were split in fragments.
Well maybe I want that too,
And not all the pieces would talk to you.
Staying won't put these futures back together,
So better take the keys and drive forever."
--Humpty Dumpty

"I keep going round and round on the same old circuit.
A wire travels underground to a vacant lot,
And shrinks the picture down to a tiny dot;
Where something I can't see interrupts the current."
--It's Not

Quick vote: This album is pretty great. We'd give it a B+.
