Listening to Fiona Apple’s previous works helps put this album to scale, as this has a magnitude and intensity like nothing she has worked on previously. It runs smooth like a hot knife through butter.
It seems to only get more intense and more appreciation from me the more I explore it. I don’t think I’ve ever heard an album like this before. This is really a journey... but this isn’t a starting point for Fiona Apple that’s for sure
Edit(100 -> 92): this album is really amazing, but when I compare it to other albums I feel are perfect, this just doesn’t really hit me the same way. This caused me to look at this a little closer and see more details I am not sure I like as much now, as I did before. Also I like the Black Dresses albums more than this, so it was right to readjust. Regardless still great.
