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.

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.
