It's a tender record, but don't think it lacks for thorns. It's a difficult record, but don't think you won't have these songs jammed in your head after the 3rd of 4th listen.

This is an absolutely beautiful album. Fiona has one of the most wonderfully emotive voices in the music industry.

A brilliant set of songs, with no fillers whatsoever. It takes a couple of listens to dive into, but once you do, it's incredibly rewarding. When it comes to this kind of vivid, cynical, often disturbing songwriting, it doesn't get much better than Fiona Apple.

Two years later and this has only gotten better, one of my all time favorites now. I just love how she's so in control of her instrument, while at the same time she seems on the edge of insanity both lyrically and vocally. And how good is the percussion? Truly unique all around.

I wasn't overly impressed with this. Nice vocals and lyrically tight, but didn't fit in with the theatrical jazzy backdrop. Will try and give it a few more listens later though to give it a proper chance.
