The Forgotten Arms tends to rock a little more than her previous effort, Lost In Space. Produced by Joe Henry, the album has a live in-studio vibe to it. She cites Mott The Hoople, a band she hasn't listened to that much as an inspiration for the kind of sound she was aiming for in recording this record. "When we recording," Mann says on her site, "I described the sound as Mott The Hoople meets alt-country." Mott isn't the only 70's sound that the album evokes. You'll hear a touchstones of classic Band, Elton John and Rod Stewart in the mix as well.
Mostly, The Forgotten Arm is classic-Mann and she has returned with another fantastic album with highlights that include: "King Of The Jailhouse," "Going Through The Motions," "I Can't Get Ny Head Around It," and the stand-out "That's How I Knew This Story Would Break My Heart."
