This review is merely preaching to the converted as, if you are a Fiona Apple fan you already know that this album is probably her very best. Stripped down and laid bare, this is probably the most vulnerable album by Fiona Apple to date. The polish of Extraordinary Machine is replaced by simple percussion and raw vocals as the record company has finally realized that the best way to sell albums is to just let Fiona be Fiona. The critical reviews have been stellar. I pre-ordered this special edition of the album, but then also like the convenience of having a digital LP version of it on iTunes. There are very few artists I will do this for. But it is worth it if it sends a message that we want more of this caliber music coming from Fiona and other artists such as herself. Definitely a quality album that you will get a lot of listening out of.
