Following the success of the single, Mann was set to release her second solo album in the spring of 1995, but her record label, Imago, filed for bankruptcy before its release.
Mann's second album, I'm with Stupid, was released in England in the late fall of 1995 and in January of 1996 in America.
Mann's career got a kick-start in early 2000, however, when she released her soundtrack for the critically acclaimed film Magnolia; the song "Save Me" was later nominated for an Academy Award.

 Splendid: Departments: LiveLine: Aimee Mann
Mann meets my image of a great songwriter: her melodies leave an impression in your ears, her lyrics are like conversations you readily remember, and her song-form is impeccable.
Mann was in good form, joking with her band and the audience between songs, the best moments being the similarities between Lockwood and Charles Nelsen Reilly and Mann's inability to remember her own songs.
Mann is not a belter, but she can put a lot of power behind a lyric, and it was a pleasure to hear her voice removed from the keyboards and drums.

 Aimee Mann
Mann was the creative force behind the Boston band 'Til Tuesday, which scored in 1984 with the Top 10 hit "Voices Carry" and was an early MTV darling.
Mann and Brion make no secret of their fondness for records by the Beatles, the Kinks, the Zombies, and Elton John, but I'm With Stupid is hardly an homage to the British Invasion.
After four semesters, Mann left school to form "a little punk noise-art outfit called the Young Snakes, which was reasonably unlistenable." She recalls: "We got a bit of attention around Boston, and it was good experience; I got to the point where I didn't have to drink heavily before getting onstage.

 Aimee Mann - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Aimee Mann (born September 8, 1960) is an American rock guitarist, bassist, singer, and songwriter.
Mann, Penn, Brion, Fiona Apple, and other musicians had by this time developed a subculture around the Largo nightclub in L.A. Penn and Mann formed a concept called Acoustic Vaudeville to recreate it on tour in California and eventually on an irregular, ongoing national tour.
Mann and her band appear as themselves in the 2002 Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Sleeper", performing the songs "This Is How It Goes" and "Pavlov's Bell" at The Bronze.

 Aimee Mann won't play nice for others
From 'Til Tuesday's disagreements with Epic Records to Mann's fights with Imago, Geffen and Interscope, Mann's history with labels has been abysmal, a clear indicator that Mann is not one to compromise her music.
Aimee Mann: There was certainly a time when I doubted I'd ever be interested in making a record for a major label again.
Aimee Mann: I definitely think that's where things are headed because major labels have ignored artist development to the point where they are completely dependent on real pop-heavy Top 40 acts, and you can feel the tide turning against that.

 Aimee Mann: Magnolia Soundtrack ---Ink Blot Magazine
Many thought Aimee Mann peaked in the early '80s as the leading member of 'Til Tuesday, but die-hard fans and sage critics know that Aimee has always been around since those early days -- working hard, writing and performing her own special brand of clever, well-crafted, take-no-prisoners, "adult-pop" classics.
This languish in no-man's label land, combined with Mann's honorable unwillingness to betray her convictions, compromise her integrity or be re-vamped by the spin machine of major label management led to the much-too-long four years between albums.
Aimee Mann's lyrics are often so caustically confident, potent and incisive that it rarely occurs to the listener that human weakness and neediness were the origination for many of the emotions roiling beneath the surface.

Dividing her time between waging war on the music industry and writing sublime pop songs, Aimee Mann shows on her fourth solo album that she is equally adept at both.
Mann cruelly opens this album with one of the best songs she's ever written ('Humpty Dumpty'), then punishes the listener with slab after slab of forgettable gloom-mongering.

 Aimee Mann
Aimee Mann was born in early September in 1960 in Richmond, Virginia.
Mann relates that the album’s theme is, “...feeling isolated and cut off from other people and yourself, trying to make connections to people and failing.” In fact, the album explores some of the darkest areas of the psyche--feelings of alienation and addiction.

 Amazon.com: The Forgotten Arm: Music: Aimee Mann   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-04)
Aimee's songs have a literary quality to them — sharp, spare short stories set to music — so it was probably inevitable that she would one day make a concept album, the musical equivalent of a novella.
Aimee sings so soulfully of the pain and the suffering that even though the subject matter is so serious and painful the songs and musical arrangements are totally beautiful.
Aimee Mann returns to this tradition with "The Forgotten Arm" (a reference to a boxing move, which seems too complicated for a non-sports person like me to explain, but from what I gather, the gist of it is this: an boxer is knocked out by the deliberately unused or apparently non-dominant arm of his/her opponent).

 Cinderella Mann: An Aimee Mann Interview
Mann acquired this unflappable composure over a tumultuous career, which began in Boston’s punk scene (her first band, The Young Snakes, featured college chum Al Jourgenson, with whom Mann briefly played in an early incarnation of Ministry).
Mann again refused to change the album, and scored a minor hit anyway with the bouncy “That’s Just What You Are.” But following a corporate merger, Mann found herself shuffled to yet another label, which likewise declined to release her third album unless she tacked on more commercial material.
Mann was so disgusted by the corporate landscape that she considered quitting the industry altogether.

Mann's manager, Michael Hausman, said that the compilation was done without Mann's approval, and that Universal-owned Hip-O Records used unapproved tracks, masters, interviews and photos in constructing the package, creating the appearance that the album was an artist-sanctioned release.
Mann had previously registered her dissatisfaction with the release of the compilation in a posting on her official website which read in part, "We were basically barred from being involved in any way on a project that had my NAME on it.

NEW YORK — It was fitting that Aimee Mann took the stage Friday at the Beacon Theatre completely wired on latte, as Mann's recent release, Lost in Space, is an 11-song treatise on addiction.
Finally, Mann traded in her acoustic guitar for an electric and pounded out a highly distorted version of "Long Shot." Stomping and staggering across the stage, she vamped emphatically on the song's well-timed refrain, "Please love me," before heading off into the wings.
Mann joked that she had something prepared, but urged the audience to submit its requests on a slip of paper onstage.

Mann, who broke out in 1985 with the group 'Til Tuesday, went solo after the band's demise, and then took her lumps as she found herself between labels more often than she was on them.
Mann's stature increased even more last year when her work on the film "Magnolia" was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe.
Happily, Mann has never been known to be a wallflower or a polite dilettante.

After releasing three albums with the group, Mann broke up the band and embarked on a solo career.

In late 2004, Mann released a live CD/DVD package recorded during a tour from the Summer of 2004.

Former 'Til Tuesday frontwoman Aimee Mann had composed many of the songs that appear on the soundtrack well before "Magnolia" even began filming, and Anderson had asked for some music from Mann while he was working on the screenplay.
As impressive as the three-hour film is, the eight originals Mann contributed to the "Magnolia" soundtrack (as well as a stirring cover of Harry Nilsson's "One") are almost as revelatory.
MTV News sat down with Mann right after "Save Me," a song from the "Magnolia" soundtrack, was nominated for a Golden Globe Award, and talked about her role in creating the film, her new album, and her long-term family plans with Penn.

That it comes as the opening to "Deathly," the centerpiece of a collection of new Aimee Mann songs serving as the movie's soundtrack, causes him not an ounce of shame.
He heaps high praise on Mann in his liner notes to the album, saying, "You are convinced that you have either a) heard it before, b) said it before, or even c) thought of it before..."
But while Mann is busy debunking romantic myths, Brion and Penn are fastidiously bolstering others: the resilient guitar solo on "Deathly" is cry of the noble sufferer.
