Sometimes I wish she didn't take so much time between album releases, but then something like this comes out and I'm glad she took her time. Every Single Night, Valentine, and Hot Knife are the standouts

Fiona Apple's best record so far. Sort of a combination of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro, it's a superb album, completely underrated. Great songs, melodies and lyrics. Fiona Apple deserves more attention and success.

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.
