    It’s so uncomfortable, which I love, and it shows how to build drama in a song with just some slight tweaks in production and vocals.

    Do you have it anywhere else? New Yorker took it down. Theyre more secretive at it than the actual performances.

    From Entertainment Weekly, #1 best album of the year:

    ““Blast the music/Bang it, bite it, bruise it,” Apple commands over the clattering piano chords and thunderous drums of Fetch the Bolt Cutters’ frenzied opener. “Whenever you want to begin, begin/We don’t have to go back to where we been.” Moving music forward has become a sort of speciality for the singer, whose scarce output — she’s released only four albums since her touchstone 1996 debut, Tidal — tends to be met with the kind of dazzled awe that usually only attends a rare comet or solar eclipse. And what a cosmic wonder she is on Fetch, churning through dense sonic experiments, tricky time signatures, and lyrical pirouettes in a wild mosaic that feels both playful and urgent, melodic and chaotic—and always, indubitably Fiona, down to the last fantastic note.”

    From Rolling Stone, #2 best album of the year:

    “Fiona Apple has always thrived on defying expectations, from telling pop stans that the world was bullshit to taking years (and years) to perfect her alt-rock operettas. But no one could have expected the audacity of Fetch the Bolt Cutters, or the way Apple expresses her independent spirit over an orchestra of drums, percussion, barks, and meows. She leaps ahead of the “VIPs, PYTs, and wannabes” on the title track (“I’ve always been too smart for that”), seeks friendship with a woman dating her ex (“Ladies”), and reflects on how one person telling her she had potential was the spark she needed as a kid (“Shameika”). When she sings, “Kick me under the table all you want, I won’t shut up,” on “Under the Table,” she means it, because this is potential fulfilled.”

    Rolling Stone named “Ladies” the 8th best song of the year:

    “Fiona Apple’s Fetch the Bolt Cutters was a career triumph in many ways, and nowhere is that more apparent than on “Ladies,” an imaginary love letter to an ex’s “revolving door” of new girlfriends. It’s a heart-to-heart that is as sincere as it is wryly funny: Apple has never sounded more sure of herself than when she lists off all the leftover baggage, literally and figuratively, that she’s left behind for her old flame’s new love.”

    Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone named Fetch the Bolt Cutters the 3rd best album of the year:

    “Fiona brings a sense of adventure and delight to Fetch the Bolt Cutters, despite all the torment in her songs. In the early lockdown days, she dropped it with scarcely a warning, just stepping back into an abandoned conversation and picking right up in mid-sentence. There’s hardly a non-quotable song on the whole album, from the primal moan of “I Want You to Love Me” to the Vipassana chant of “On I Go.” But my favorite is “Ladies,” which starts with a dress left behind in an ex’s closet: “Don’t get rid of it, you’d look good in it, I didn’t fit in it, it was never mine, it belonged to the ex-wife of another ex of mine.” Fiona makes it sound like leaving relics behind in other people’s houses is a secret grapevine code for women to communicate across the years.”
