Critic Reviews

We currently know 14 reviews for "Mental Illness" by Aimee Mann. The album received pretty solid reviews among the critics and is one of the better ones this year.

"For 44 minutes, Mann slips into the skin of someone walking an emotional tightrope, and it’s an act she pulls of with grace and conviction."

91 % Consequence of Sound
"Mental Illness wallows in its troubles, and it’s an exquisite wallow."

90 % The New York Times
"Mann has earned her reputation as a master songwriter on the coherence of her artistic choices. As in good short stories, every element in her songs works to support a single theme."

86 % Paste Magazine
"Mental Illness is first and foremost an album about achieving self-sufficiency through trail and blunder. And in doing so, she once again stands tallest, and quietest, in an exceptionally consistent career."

80 % No Ripcord
"An album rooted in the low end of the emotional spectrum is a risk, but through fastidious instrumental detailing and lyrics that evince sympathy even when they’re at their most cutting, Mann crafts a melancholic atmosphere that is worth repeated listens, whether as a means for catharsis or as a well-crafted cloud to ease the punishing brightness of a too-sunny day."

80 % Boston Globe
"Like the 1999 film Magnolia that earned Mann an Oscar nomination, Mental Illness would make a similarly engrossing mosaic of stories for the big screen."

80 % Record Collector
"These songs are crafted in the best sense of the word, with the lyrics delivering sublime twists that the music matches. As such, Mental Illness becomes something of a balm for troubled times; it's an album that finds reassurance within the darkest corners."

80 % AllMusic
"Her lyrics are full of witty puns, comic exaggerations and double-entendres accented by her sense of timing and intonations. The lines drip with bon mots that begin straight and then bend unexpectedly."

80 % PopMatters
"A compelling consistency of mood makes Metal Illness easy to get lost in. [May 2017, p.94]"

80 % Mojo
"Mann's best work has always lingered on such private reverie, and Mental Illness is one of her most ravishing and affecting hymns to solitude."

80 % Slant Magazine
"Juxtaposing elegant chamber folk against the discord of lives out of balance, it’s musically more delicate than even her soft rock models."

78 % Pitchfork
"This is a solid addition to Mann's estimable discography, the kind of record that sets a mood and sustains it for 39 craftsmanlike minutes."

75 % Chicago Tribune
"While Mental Illness doesn’t stray too far from the beaten path, it does offer something new for seasoned Mann watchers."

70 % Classic Rock Magazine
"Mental Illness remains more of the same, never quite hitting any peaks, and never missing a step either."
