In my book, one of the most underappreciated albums ever recorded. The minimalist, chromatic piano arrangements are a perfect match Apple's ferocious vocals. Lyrically, very personal and vivid. Songs like "Werewolf" and "Valentine" are subtle melodies with lyrics that gets under your skin, while tracks such as "Jonathan", "Left Alone", and "Regret" perfectly capture Fiona's fluttering state of mind. "Every Single Night" is a perfect opener that draws you in with the verses, then slaps you across the face with the chorus. The peppy "Anything We Want" is the only happy song on the album, acting as a nice relief to the distress. The closer "Hot Knife" starts with a simple timpani rhythm, then builds layer upon layer of vocals that speak conflicting thought about whether Fiona is above the man she loves or if he's above her. The entire album almost feels like you're inside her head, hearing her tortured thoughts as she barely manages to hold onto her sanity during a break-up. It's a modern classic.

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.
