Extraordinary Machine songs Product Information
Extraordinary Machine album for sale by Fiona Apple was released Oct 04, 2005 on the Epic label. This dualdisc includes a CD side of her album, plus a DVD side with the entire album in Enhanced LPCM stereo, 2 brand new videos, live performances filmed at the club Largo in Los Angeles, interview and other intimate behind-the-scenes footage, and a video. To say that the released version of Extraordinary Machine is a marked improvement over the bootlegged version is not to say that it sounds more complete -- after all, the booted Jon Brion productions sounded finished, as evidenced by the two cuts that were retained; the intricate chamber pop of the opening title track and the closing "Waltz (Better Than Fine)" are the only time Brion's productions not only suited, but enhanced Fiona Apple's songs -- but they are both more accessible, and more fully realized, letting Apple's songs breathe in a way they didn't on the original sessions. Extraordinary Machine CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

Fiona Apple is an excellent singer an song writter. I've played "Tidal" and "When the pawn..." lots of times. I was waiting for this album for six years. What happened? Her voice and the piano are correct, but there's no soul in the songs. Not feelings. Not Fiona, only a musician that plays instruments almost for obligation. Not personality. Not the sadness of "Love ridden" nor "Sullen girl". Not the beauty of "I know" nor "Pale september" nor "Never is a promise". Not the lust of "Criminal". Not the force of "The way things are". There are only 3 excellent songs: "Waltz", "Not about love" and "Parting gift". This album is not bad, but I was waiting for much more for this astonishing woman. Mediocre.

Fiona's distinct sound and original lyrics are again on display in Extraordinary machine. Buy it if you are looking for something distinctive, original and that gets better the more you listen to it.

The songs in this cd are good but their emotional potential seems to be flattered down a bit by "macho" arrangements...everything is perfect but, apart from Fiona's voice and lyrics, somewhat cold.

||I love her songs!!|
Although I think this cd is wonderful, it really helped seeing her live to understand how she really feels when she is singing these songs. Once you have heard her live and all the emotions she brings to each song you can listen to the cd and just know how she is feeling even though the song itself might sound a little unemotional. You've just got to get in the mindset really. The words are very expressive but you definately have to hear her live to get the full effect. I wish she would release a live cd!!

i recently went to one of her concerts and thought she sounded better live. Her cd is wonderfull but you can't apreciate it fully untill you see her actually perform the songs.
