4.0 out of 5 stars A look at Aimee Mann's early years ... April 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Yes, a good chunk of the material here is very '80s, but it's all excellent. Despite the somewhat dated recordings, the songs pulse with Mann's thoughtfulness, intrigue and a touch of seething anger. Two of 'til tuesday's three hits are on this CD, which is great, but I am scratching my head at why "Looking Over My Shoulder" was left out. What a GREAT song! And it was a hit! Its omission baffles me. With that song, this would have been a five-star CD, but it's still pretty darn fabulous. If you are an Aimee Mann fan, this CD is definitely up your alley, my friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreamy and introspective April 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
One summer in the mid-to-late-1980s my family took a sidewinding trip to Ocean City, Maryland to visit my relatives. On the radio at the time were such high-power ballads as Heart's "These Dreams" and Ric Ocasek's "Emotion in Motion"...and then there was Til Tuesday, a band with a distinctly flamboyant veneer masking true depth. To see Aimee Mann realize her true artistic forum in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Magnolia" is, for such a musical connoisseur as myself, a true testament to the talent of the woman whose band reflects such great memories for me as throwing a fluorescent blue ball on the Ocean City beach while the waves pounded the surf and the TV show "Valerie" (which later became "The Hogan Family") played on the television eight floors above. Everything's changed now, but one still can unload with a few of the terrific songs: "Voices Carry", whose synthesized instrumentals always sounded good on lonely backroad nights, and "What About Love" (especially the opening chord, which plays like a haunting conglomeration of ghostly loss and what sounds vaguely like a hiccup). Many people drag 80s music down, yet for so many people of our generation, its innocence coalesced perfectly with our childhoods. I have followed Ms. Mann for a few years now (from her "Whatever" album to her role as the nine-toed woman in "The Big Lebowski") , and I'm pleased that she has broken through. Yet at a time where I tend to analyze music for its artistic merit, I need not question 'Til Tuesday. Like Punky Brewster, Rubik's cubes, and bright fluorescent balls, she made my childhood all the more memorable. Great stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant April 6, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Having just been aquainted with the music of Aimee Mann, I have to admit I had reservations about purchasing this album. I'm not a fan of synth-pop, and "Voices Carry" certainly fits into that category.
Needless to say, "Voices Carry" and "Love In A Vacuum" are the weakest tracks on this compilation. Aimee had the hindsight to see the limitations of synthesized pop and dared to progress towards a more organic sound (at a time when it wasn't in vogue to do so). This CD certainly reflects that decision. So many songs on this CD alone qualify as classic pop: "J For Jules", "Limits To Love", "The Other End (Of The Telescope)", "David Denies", "Long Gone Buddy" etc.
Aimee Mann is a brilliant songwriter, arguably the most talented of her generation. Here we can track the development of her talent through her initial 'til Tuesday project. If you have any interest in pop music (in the vein of The Beatles), you NEED this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aimee Mann at her best May 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Vaguely remembering a few songs from the band, I bought this as a curiousity, sort of liked it upon listening, and then it grew on me. This collection of songs from 'Til Tuesday's first 3 cd's is an excellent compilation of thoroughly listenable music, featuring Aimee Mann's beautiful voice and knowing lyrics in melodic compositions of synthesized musical sounds. There is something that just works about the flow of tracks in this compilation (which is a rare phenomenon of greatest hits records). Standouts are the resounding "No One Is Watching You Now", the upbeat syncopations of "On Sunday," and the sentimental favorite "Coming Up Close", though this entire cd has a wealth of original vintage 1980's pop sounds, that haven't lost their touch or appeal, suggesting a certain timelessness in the songwriting and production. It's good road trip music, or even for studying. Simply a great cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Pop Gems March 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Long before Aimee Mann was the darling of the indie-pop world and earned her well deserved success with the "Magnolia" soundtrack, there was her first success with the band 'til tuesday. Often dismissed with so many others as an 80's one-hit wonder, this collection bears testimony that their music still stands out and that Aimee's new-found popularity is by no means a fluke.
Best known for the song (and video) "Voices Carry", this collection is packed with excellent soul-bearing material, criminally overlooked and pre-dating the whole Lilith Fair movement by nearly a decade. Even back in the 80's, Aimee Mann was considered a brilliant songwriter, filling her work with impeccable musical hooks and confessional lyrics. Musically it does seem to be a tad dated by today's standards, however what is here is 80's pop music at it's height. The production is glossy but not overbearing. The songs still come shining through. And all brilliantly remastered.
It is not a complete collection; there are some ommissions, noteably a song from the first album and many from "Everything's Different Now" (which is a "best-of" album in it's own right - get that one as well). But all the major highlights are here. If you are merely purchasing this for the big hit single (honestly the low point of the album!), you'll find yourself pleasnatly suprised once you realize there was much more to 'til tuesday. If you just heard of Aimee from "Magnolia", welcome to one of pop's best kept secrets.
