The article presents information about Aimee Mann's music album "The Forgotten Arm" (by SuperEgo Records). Instead of assembling a dozen literate but unrelated songs onto her exceptional fifth album, beloved artist/songwriter/D.I.Y. queen Aimee Mann weaves all of them together, telling the love story of Southern girl Caroline and Vietnam vet/boxer/addict John. Despite its specific characters, when Mann sings "Maybe there's something wrong with me" on "King of the Jailhouse," or pleas "I Can't Help You Anymore," anyone who has suffered through a traumatic, dramatic relationship can find at least one melodic nugget to relate to.
