Mann's new album, Mental Illness, out now via SuperEgo Records, has been released to critical praise:

"Mental Illness can be punishingly sad, but also breathtakingly pretty." -NPR Music

"Mental Illness wallows in its troubles, and it's an exquisite wallow." -The New York Times

"Every doomed syllable is sacred and every tragic rhyme fits, as though each song were a puzzle to which only Mann knows the solution." -Los Angeles Times

"Mental Illness is Aimee Mann's quintessential statement, tempering the discord of life with elegant chamber folk. Mann fills her songs with ordinary people struggling against operatic levels of pain." -Pitchfork

"...a solid addition to Mann's estimable discography, the kind of record that sets a mood and sustains it for 39 craftsmanlike minutes." -Chicago Tribune

"...Mann crafts a melancholic atmosphere that is worth repeated listens, whether as a means for catharsis or as a well-crafted cloud to ease the punishing brightness of a too-sunny day." -The Boston Globe

"Aimee Mann's quietly intense songs have always painted empathetic portraits of tormented characters- who leave an impression on her, as well as listeners." -ELLE

"...a serene album of delicate, mournful songs." -Associated Press

"The patron saint of gloomy folk pop." -The Washington Post

"A showcase for her considerable craft and her knife-edge wit, Mental Illness is one of Mann's sharpest albums of the century."? -Stereogum

"The singer-songwriter plays into her melancholic reputation with grace and conviction." -Consequence of Sound
