Aimee Mann: The Forgotten Arm
Terry Staunton, Record Collector, June 2005
FILM DIRECTOR Paul Thomas Anderson used Aimee Mann's music as the starting point and inspiration for his Oscar-nominated Magnolia, about the intertwining, desperate lives of LA misfits. Since then, Mann's own releases have been movies without pictures, brilliantly realised song cycles which have helped make the concept album hip again.
