    She's good and snarky on Charmer. [Nov 2012, p. 101]

    There's little new here, and even less charm.

    The record doesn't veer far from the template Mann has established over the last decade. [Aug/Sep 2012, p.122]

    There is some magic to Mann's music and it's often hard to define.

    Too many tracks flirt with flat inconsequentiality, and too often the lyrics slip by without the sting of Mann's normally incisive wordsmithery.

    It doesn't really work for either audience it aspires to please, and I'm left feeling a bit bored.

    Charmer, her eighth studio album, represents a sunny turn for her, at least in relative terms.

    Charmer is at its finest during the most subdued, quietly detailed stretches, which veer closer to what we've heard from Mann on past efforts.
