Fiona Apple Extraordinary Machine is 10

Fiona Apple's third album, Extraordinary Machine, came out on this day 10 years ago. You can read all about the controversy and re-recording of the album over at its wikipedia page. For me, it's a special album with, forgive me, extraordinary songs.

Listening to this album, you'll find elements of jazz along with pop on these ambitious songs. The remarkable part is how easy to listen to these songs are, given their impressive nature. The melodies and lyrics flow from your speakers creating pleasure while you are acutely aware of how unique and accomplished they are.

Give some tunes a listen.

"Extraordinary Machine"

"Get Him Back"

"O' Sailor"

"Parting Gift"


"Not About Love"
