I recently purchased Ms Apples latest and the more I listen to it, the more I love it! It is a simply amazing album and it would be hard to pick just one song as my favorite. I love the title song, "O Sailor", "Window", "Waltz", Better Version Of Me" and so many others. It is a slightly different direction for Fiona, but it is well worth the purchase price! Fiona is so real! She writes her own songs, plays the piano and did the cover photography! She is extremely gifted! If you do not have this album, get it!

The title track makes me think of Billie Holiday.

I love Waltz especially. It's such a brilliant song, but then again, I expected nothing less from Fiona.

I love it too. But what makes it so brilliant for me is not just the lush intrumentals but how wonderfully upbeat the song is. It's a very fitting ending to a terrific CD.

Please please please
No apologies
At best they buy you time
Until you next step out of line
Please please please
No more remedies
My method is uncertain
It's a mess but it's working
And maybe if you tried it out
You won't like it when you're crying out:dance:

I'm in total agreement. Waltz is fantastic! My favourite part:

No, I don't believe in the wasting of time
But I don't believe I'm wasting mine

The video she did for Not About Love is a riot! Have you guys watched it?

:lol: this should be in my thread Phil dont you think ?

It's indeed a wonderful album

The melodies are nice, the lyrics are cool tho I have difficulties toi understand it all but globally the song smake me vibe so that's the main point ;)
The instruments are great -make me ythink of circus at some time :lol: esp on Extraordinary Machine, Better Version of Me, and Used to Love Him :hearts:

Its really an entertaining album with both lovely ballads (Waltz, O Sailor, O Well, Parting Gift ) and more energetic songs (BVoM, Please please please etc)

:hearts: better album of Fiona IMO :worship:

What makes Fiona so spectacular in a lot of her numbers is her instrumental arrangements. Carrion, for instance from her first CD, is very Beatles-like.

She can make the angriest or saddest of song still give you the chills.

I love the video, with the big guy who looks like Rupert from Survivor lip-syncing in Fiona's voice. :lol:

I hate to agree but I get that feeling. I have not been happy with much of her work from start to finish since "from the choirgirl hotel."

I mean she has has some outstanding stuff since then, but just not on a consistent basis.

I love Lil' Fi! I have all her albums. My fav song from Extraordinary Machine is Oh Well, i love singing along to Oh Well. And I also love....... I dunno the name, but I know all the words off the top of my head because I sing to everything:

I don't understand about complementary colors and what they say
side by side they both get bright, together they both get gray
but he's been pretty much yellow, and i've been kinda blue
but all i can see is, red, red, red, red, red noooooooooww
what am i gonna do
i don't understand about
diamonds
and why men buy them
what's so impressive about a diamond except the mining
but it's tedious work, trying to get to you
and i think if i didn't have to kill, kill, kill, kill, kill myself doing it
may i wouldn't
think so much of you
i've been watchin all the time
and i still can't find the tact
but what i wanna know is
is it okay
is it just fine
is it my fault
is it my lack
...

i dunno the name. I also like, Get Him Back.

Damn that is a terrific song. It's one of those songs you listen to when you are driving cross country with the window down at 2am. The orchestra at the end gives me chills.

The leaked version is still really superior to the album one, though some of the new versions were good.
