Pretty darn cool.

"Hot Knife" is fantastic, but feels weird here.

I love Fiona Apple. I especially like her first album, which was a jazzy style she's never really attempted to duplicate. But there are glimpses of it on The Idler Wheel..., with songs that are more skeletal than on her previous album. The piano bits are still trending towards a more complicated musical theater style, and the album is accordingly challenging. But the hooks are there to be found, and she still pens a fierce lyric.

My pick for best album of 2012 and the best of Fiona's career. Providing the voice for the broken woman, her lyrics are raw, poetic illustrations of emotional devastation. The intricate arrangements compliment Fiona's words beautifully.
