I also have heard tracks from several reviews (Sound Opinions and two different NPR reviews) that vary wildly. If she was an artist I really cared about I'd get the album and give it a shot but she has never been, so meh.
    How could you tell if you'll like an album as a whole if you've only heard like 4 songs, played at random parts in the day. It's like reading various chapters of a book and saying you didn't understand the book and you hated it.

    Edit: and btw, this is not an attack on you specifically. It's an attack on the way people listen to music now... how can you expect to love/like/even judge an album if you haven't heard it all the way thru at least once.

    Wait... You guys don't have The Price is Right theme song teaser in your version of "Hot Knife"? It's my favorite part!

    Maybe she's talking about the part where it gets really good and her ears stop being able to take the goodness.

    I'm confused too... Virtually all of her music sounds like overwrought show tunes. What about that track distinguishes it?

    Yeah, strange comment. Clearly the tin pan alley composers are some of her biggest influences.

    Anyone seen her on this tour yet? Can't wait for Oakland.

    Have you listened to it? I don't know that it'll be up your alley at all, but you'd have to agree that it doesn't really sound anything like her other work.

    I imagine that Jared watches shows that none of us have ever heard about (and can only be accessed via a TV satellite contraption that one must build on their own). Perhaps they have different show tunes than we are used to.

    Fiona Apple songs sound like three cocktail spoons in a glass jar.

    Probably a confession: I just cried for a half hour listening to the lyrics of "regret" because I'm not so certain I should give a copy to my quasi-sister-in-law from a recent domestic violence from my brother against her that landed her in the hospital. She loves Fiona but not certain she'll find those lyrics comforting. And maybe I should give a copy to my brother so that he might get a clue.

    Other than that, I'm certain I'll be tearing the whole time at her concert next week. just hope she doesn't see me bawling to her lyrics. Fucking Fiona sings about my life--how is that possible? sigh

    Hopefully she's strong enough to have called the police and stick with it.

    Did you all know Madoff is in jail because he stole from the 1%?

    Don't you dickbags have some underground post-noise-hip-hop to pretend to enjoy so you can look cool somewhere?

    I'm trolling some asshole on Facebook who's selling 2 orchestra tickets for the AZ show for $145 apiece. Face value is $65. His defense is that his prices are lower than everyone else selling tickets on eBay.

    She was in fine form at the Fox tonight. What a wonderful performance. I love how she and her band added a bit of muscle to the Idler Wheel songs without betraying the originals. The one disappointment was the sound. Absolutely atrocious for the first 5 or 6 numbers. Thank goodness it got progressively better toward the end of the evening. There were some songs in which it sounded like Fiona and band were playing in an empty high school gymnasium. Across town. Biggest surprise for me was 'Not About Love', from Extraordinary Machine, a song I'm pretty indifferent to. It was absolutely electrifying tonight.

    I was wondering the same thing. She fucking killt it last night at the Palladium. More piano and less scatting than I was led to expect, but otherwise wildly exceeded my imagination of what it would be.
