The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "Songwriting, comedy, boxing - is there anything Aimee Mann doesn't do? The renaissance woman joins Jim and Greg in the studio to perform songs from her latest album, Charmer. Later, Jim and Greg review the new record from pop phenom Bruno Mars."

Comment: I happen to find Aimee Mann to be one of the most overrated underrated songwriters ever; a bit too precious, songcrafty (mechanical) and even smug, with very little to say and lyrics not half as intelligent as she and her fans seem to think. But that's just me!
