The new Fiona Apple album

I like neurotic women who make strange, passionate and smart music. Always have. That said…

I get the impression she’s always believed (or, at least, read) her own press. Problem: she finally made an album not at all worthy of past rave reviews. The lyrics are labored, the vocal tics affected and the arrangements fussy.

I hate to bring it down to this level, but Jon Brion probably could have made more sense of the demos, even if the project would have been taken from him during label second-guessing.

A major disappointment, considering Extraordinary Machine was comprehensively wonderful.
