Wow love Fiona's new release!

I finally bought Fiona Apple's new release Extroardinary Machine and have been listening to it constantly since I bought it.

Some of it sounds similar to When the Pawn......but her music seems a tad more mature and less angry even though a lot of her subject matter is still of the jilted girl.

But what I am really loving is the instrumental arrangements. Songs like Red Red Red and Waltz make you just get lost in the lushness of each song.

Also love the title track and Window.

Anyone else loving this CD?

It rocks , but Jon Brion's unreleased versions of the tracks are a lot better IMO , especially the one of Red Red Red that you mentionned...

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...

Album of the year. Sounds even better live.

I think I'm the only one who doesn't prefer Brion's version. I love both Red, Red, Reds equally.


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

I think I heard "Window" the other day on the LSU radio station. Is it the one about a broken window or something? It was simply amazing. I don't normally like songs that much on the first listen but it blew me away.

Fiona

Seriously. Anyone who doesn't have this album is beyond me. Go get it now. It is THAT GOOD.

Yah, it's good, but for some reason I prefer her earlier works

Would just be over the moon if she upset the field and won a Grammy this year.

I really like it aswell, but I still think When The Pawn is her best album. That album was amazing

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

They are both remarkably similar. The difference is with her latest she seems to have lost a lot of that anger even though the subject matter is nearly the same.

As a Kate Bush fan, Fiona Apple is of great interest to me and only yesterday I was looking at buying some of her CDs. From what I can make out there's only been 3?

How would you describe her music? I'm interested.
