Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The much anticipated follow-up to Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights, Magnolia features a specially orchestrated soundtrack, largely written and performed by Aimee Mann ('Til Tuesday member and sadly overlooked solo artist). Mann's voice has always been a suitable vehicle for conveying emotional turmoil and indelible sadness, and several tracks here ("Build That Wall," "You Do," "Driving Sideways") do so with the rich melodicism that informs her best work. Producer Jon Brion's sprightly horn arrangements for "Momentum" are an unexpected (though not completely unwelcome) splash of cold water. Only Mann's cover of the Harry Nilsson-penned Three Dog Night hit "One" backfires, as it simply doesn't deliver the same effective climax as the original. The two Supertramp tracks from their Breakfast in America LP tacked on at album's end are incongruous (though they cut down the degrees of separation between them and Mann to an incredible one!). However, for anyone with an interest in Mann's melodic songwriting, there are eight worthy originals waiting for you. --Rob O'Connor

Format:Audio CD
The trajectory of Aimee Mann's career is one of the more unusual ones. Whereas artists typically toil in obscurity for years, slowly building a rabid fan base who turn their noses when that artist makes a successful compromised play for mainstream success, Mann started her major label career with the successful compromised album ('Til Tuesday's "Voices Carry"), then proceeded to follow it up with a brilliant-but-less-commercial discography (now numbering four LPs, plus assorted other contributions) that built the rabid fan base out of the ashes of the mainstream success.
If there has been a fault with her output post-Voices Carry, it has been that there simply has not been enough. This is due in large part to her problems with major labels. Columbia rejected what was supposed to be the fourth 'Til Tuesday album. Imago, who released her first solo album (Whatever) went under before the second solo album could be released. Geffen Records, who released the second solo album, was turned into a decimated shell following the Universal/Polygram merger, and after some well-documented chain pulling, Aimee was dropped by a label who clearly didn't "get" the idea of art versus commerce.
And along the way, Mann also had the distinction of being the "girl singer" not signed by A&M because they could only sign one such singer at the time, and Sheryl Crow got the nod.
OK, so now you know why the rabid fans (myself included) anticipate with drool spilling from our mouths ANY new Mann music. When you get beyond the packaging and tie-ins, the Magnolia soundtrack is essentially a half an Aimee Mann album. There are nine Mann tracks, a couple of old Supertramp hits, a track by what can only imagine is a Warner Bros.

By Greg
Format:Audio CD
To be honest, I haven't heard of Aimee Mann before this terrific soundtrack. She totally encompasses the emotion of the film and enhances the viewing experience. Her music and the film work together to create an emotion within yourself that is so hard to depict through mass media. "Save Me" is the hit, but I feel that "Wise Up" is one of the best tracks on the soundtrack because it truly defines what the film is all about. I have now bought all of Aimee Mann's collection and will be eager to hear more from this artist. No longer will the corporate record labels be able to silence one of the greatest songwriters and vocalists I have ever heard. Buy this soundtrack and go see the film if you want to experience some of the best personal and social commentary that can be shown in this commercialized, mass mediated society.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Stars Are 4 Aimee, Not Supertramp January 11, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Buy this CD and program tracks 2-9--since Aimee's version of One--Track 1--is dispensable, as are the Supertramp, Gabrielle and, I hate to say it, Jon Brion, tracks. That leaves seven sterling examples of Aimee Mann's musical and lyrical virtues. As always, there's the expert songwriting, guitar playing, musical arrangements, vocals, lyrics and relentlessly penetrating insight. But,that's just the beginning. Once you've immersed yourself in the music, go see Magnolia This isn't the usual snippet here and verse there type of Soundtrack. As director P.T. Anderson acknowledges: Magnolia is based on these songs and he gives full rein to most of them during the course of the movie. In one beautiful passage, each of Anderson's lovingly developed characters take turns singing Wise Up in sad, broken, heartfelt voices as Aimee's plaintive voice rises above them all. For my money, it's one of the most affecting movie moments in memory. Though P.T. Anderson is clearly the auteur of Magnolia, it stands as a sonic collaboration with Aimee Mann...and the whole thing is utterly awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, of course, for the Aimee Mann songs. August 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Aimee Mann's eight or so introductory tracks on the soundtrack to "Magnolia" are, quite frankly, some of the best moody, angsty music I've ever heard. Better than Alanis. Better than Fiona Apple. Better than Tori Amos.

From her cover of "One" to the brilliant, brilliant "Wise Up," Mann's tracks alone make this album a must-have. The Oscar-nominated "Save Me" is a great song, the sort you put on repeat in your CD player when you feel like you're part of "the ranks of the freaks who suspect that they'll never love anyone," a feeling I hope I share with lots of people.

The Supertramp tracks and that song "Dreams" are OK, but they don't really fit with the feel and sound of the Mann songs. The album, though, is very clearly split into two halves - with the Mann stuff basically filling the first half and the poppier, more upbeat stuff coming at the end.

"Magnolia" the film requires multiple viewings to understand, but the songs of Aimee Mann, which inspired the film's creation, are fairly straightforward, moving and beautiful to work both with the film and without it.

The multiple listens you'll give the "Magnolia" soundtrack won't be to help you better understand its meaning. You'll just want to relive the beauty of the thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice February 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
With the exception of the Supertramp junk food & the cloying 'Dreams' song (both tacked on for their comical use in the film), 'Magnolia' is one of the finest soundtracks in ages. Original song material written specifically for the film not a soundtrack is hard to come by & with talents like Aimee Mann & P.T. Anderson working together, the results are flawless. From the spunky 'Momentum' to the wrenching 'Save Me,' Mann combines a folksy, offbeat style that embodies the heartbreak & awkwardness of modern life.
