The Idler Wheel… – Fiona Apple

The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.

Don’t let the essay length album title deter you; Fiona Apple’s newest album is actually a very direct illustration of honesty, as is her penchant as a performer. In her first album since 2005, and only her fourth since 1996, this powerful songstress continues on her way of letting you into the intimacies of her life, and her ability hasn’t diminished; her piano and voice still hold strong against her own occassionally unconventional song structures. Do yourself a favour and listen to it from start to finish, and then over and over again.
