A long awaited follow up to "when the pawn.." Fiona Apples new album "Extraordinary Machine" delves deeper into the melancholy singers emotional darkside. With songs such as "this is not about love" and "oh well" we can relate to Fiona's struggle to grow, learn and discover ourselves, as well as the let downs in yourself, life and mostly relationships. A different sound, but like wine, Fiona ages with grace and comes out bittersweet, just how we like her.

Once again, Fiona has reappeared in the musical spotlight, bringing with her another masterpiece for us to enjoy. Her voice simultaneously angry, soothing, sexy, and soulful - Extraordinary Machine is an album stripped of pretense and much of the orchestration that appeared in it's first web incarnation - much to the pleasure of those who enjoy the simple pleasure of hearing a well-written song. I am constantly amazed at the lyrics that emanate from her brain. I doubt that you'll be hearing any American Idol contestants choosing her music to audition to. It takes a masterful skill of timing to carry off the many rhythms and tones she makes seem easy. It is easy to see (if you read the lyrics) that much of her drama is self-inflicted, but the catalyst of seemingly endless bad relationships make for a grand cuisine of music. Those men lucky enough to have shared her life and performed badly, must be grateful for the fact that they have been immortalized, though anonymously. I personally would love to have a relationship with her, and after it's inevitable ending, would expectantly wait for the next album, and listen in awe as she captured it beautifully in song. It is sad to say, but I hope she never finds the happiness she seeks, because few can capture the sadness, emptiness and self-reflection that only a broken relationship can inspire. The last thing I want to see is a happy "Sheryl Crow-ish" song coming out of her mouth. If you haven't bought this album yet, go out and buy it. While you are there, look for "When the Pawn...", which is a more raw expression of Fiona's feelings, and just as enjoyable.
