  • Summary: This self-released effort for the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter (and former Til Tuesday frontwoman) is her first release since the twin 2000 critical successes of 'Bachelor No. 2' and the soundtrack to "Magnolia."

  1. Musically, Mann's put a bit more oomph into her songs. [23 Aug 2002, p.142]
  2. No one surpasses her as a master of poetic regret, and few albums examine the peculiar beauty of depression with the skill she brings to Lost in Space.
  3. 80
    Textured and complex. [Oct 2002, p.108]
  4. Lost in Space leaves you feeling that she's already covered this terrain.
  5. Despite its inherently adult contemporary inclinations, Lost in Space does feature some of the great songwriting we've come to expect from Mann, and her songs are, in all reality, still pretty wounded and fractured.
  6. Lost in Space finds Mann in a rut, albeit one with clear sightlines on relationship stasis, occupational drift, and the balm of (unspecified) addictions.
  7. The tempos and melodies drag throughout; it's as though we've heard Mann sing these songs before, only here her understated passion comes off more like overstated indifference.
