Review this album
Mar 16, 2012This album was Fiona coming into her real power. Utilizing heavy and interesting rhythms while using the lower register of the piano brings a dark and, at the same time, funky feel to her music. Her ballads shine even greater than they did on her first album as they move gently and make it difficult to shake the feeling of shear heartbreak. I have not heard a female artist with lyrical craft nearly as great as Ms. Apple's. Not only is this album a 10 out of 10, it ranks to be in my top 20 favorite albums of all time.… Expand
Nov 29, 2012A very good work. Her voice, her lyrics and the piano make 'When The Pawn...' to a wonderful work. But I can't pick out an excellent song, or at least something that could work alone as a single. Anyway, this album is totally worth hearing and a great experience!
Sep 22, 2013This album hits a variety of notes literally and metaphorically The media should take notes from this masterpiece every song is outstanding in its own right. Ranging from Fiona`s piano playing to her amazing voice down to the outright brilliant lyrics not only one of the best single female albums but one of the greatest single albums of all time. 10/10
