Does anybody recall the nod to Fiona Apple from the Cartoon Network? Fred (the boring, straight guy of Scooby Doo) complains: "Velma, you little traitor... You can forget about the Fiona Apple tickets, little Miss Matchmaker, I mean it!" For solely this reason do I hope for Fiona's success. I'd hate that classic line to be outdated!

Fiona Apple is pissed off! And that passion comes through loud and clear on tracks like Limp and Get Gone. While most songwriters struggle to be melodic, eloquent, even coherant in their anger and angst, Apple plays these emotions as well as she does her piano.
On the whole this is slightly better than her first album, more exciting and rhythmically interesting, though there are few tracks as good as Tidal's Sullen Girl or Shadowboxer. If you've never bought this because you were afraid it wouldn't live up to Tidal, fear not. Just because none of the songs got that much airplay doesn't mean a thing. This is definitely no sophomore slump. All I want to know is when Apple will release a third album. She is easily one of the most gifted and exciting musicians working today, and a far cry from all the manufactured pop princesses like Britney, Christina, Jessica, Mandy, Hillary and the like. Fiona Apple is above all, writing from her gut and singing from the heart. Don't miss out, buy this today.

Fiona Apple rose to notoriaty with her 1996 debut album "Tidal" (released when she was all of 19 years old), and then took 3 1/2 years to release her second album in November, 1999. It was well worth the wait, and the album sounds as good now as it then, if not better.
"When the Pawn" (10 tracks, 42 min.) delivers on the promise of "Tidal" and then some! From the excellent opener "On the Pound", Fiona delivers one standout track after another, and shows how much her songwriting has matured from "Tidal". Although her music is very different from Tori Amos, spiritually they are both on the same page. I can't help but notice, though, that Matt Chamberlain, drummer and side-kick for Tori's albums, drums on most tracks here too. If one has to pick out standout tracks in the album (there are no weak tracks truly), I will pick the angry "Limp", the enthralling "Fast As You Can", and the pensive "The Way Things Are".
One thing that stands out is how much Fiona's lyrics have improved from her debut album. This despite the ridiculous album's full title (which is a 90 word poet). It's been more than 4 years since "When the Pawn" was released, but supposedly a new album is in the works for later this year. "When the Pawn" was released in late 99 and I called it one of the best of 2000 (see my annual "best of" lists) simply because I felt its impact wasn't felt until then. It still resonates with me now as it did then. Just magnificent!

I impulsively bought this CD after having listened to Tidal over and over. I had heard "Fast as you Can" and "Limp" back when teen pop was all the rage, but they didn't make me want to go buy the album itself. Then again, I did buy the Pokemon soundtrack, so what did I know? Not a lot, since this CD is worth every penny in its price.
This album is great in every sense of the word. I don't regret buying this album for one second. This is the kind of album that doesn't draw comparisons to other artists. It makes other artists be compared to you, and it's the kind of album every artist dreams of making.
Fiona sounds like she's been doing this for years. Not only was she very young, but it would have been easy for her to give in and make the kind of pop music that was big at the time. She didn't and for that alone she deserves credit.
1)On the Bound: a great album opener. One of my favorite songs on the album.
2)To Your Love: a really good song. Very uptempo and fast.
3)Limp: another one of my favorites. This song is fierce and it makes you afraid to be the man who inspired this song.
4)Love Ridden: a slower song. It keeps the momentum going.
5)Paper Bag: a strange and very good song.
6)A Mistake: probably my favorite song on the album. Very honest and unique.
7)Fast As You Can: I love this song. I love the changes it makes tempo-wise.
8)The Way Things Are: another one of my favorites. She really nails this song.
9)Get Gone: I love the chorus. This has some of her most clever lyrics.
10)I Know: a great way to end a great album. Very slow and reflective.
So there you have it. I highly recommend this CD. Hopefully, her next album will be out soon. It will be hard to follow up this album, but I know Fiona can do it.

No matter what you think of Fiona as a person (she is quite eccentric in more ways than one) it is undeniable what kind of talent she has. Her music is like liquid poetry, each word and note sliding right into the next one, not as if it was written that way, by destined to be so. Her voice is thick, and sultry, filled with the heaviness of regret and pain that far exceeds her age.
Her metaphors are amazingly clever and powerful and yet so easy to understand. Her use of rhyme, puns and alliteration get me every time. Lines like "my pretty mouth will frame the phrases that will dispprove your faith in man" hits a spike with each consinant. "You can use my skin to bury secrets in" manages to sound both sensual and creepy. She seems to know herself so well and has no problem letting us know the truth.
If you enjoyed "Tidal", there would have to be something terribly wrong with you to not like "When the Pawn..." just as much, if not moreso. I just hope that she continues the trend of each album blowing the former out of the water (if her label ever actually lets her release Extrodinary Machine)!
