RM Music Feature – The Idler Wheel… by Fiona Apple

As one reviewer succinctly put it “A true Fiona Apple fan knows the meaning of patience.”  And it’s true – seven years after the release of her last album, Fiona Apple’s latest will be released on June 19th, and it looks like it will be worth the wait!  Once again the title is LONG, but the emotions, lyrics and sounds in this album will captivate you.

“The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do” by Fiona Apple

“Delving into classical music, jazz, art-rock, and show tunes, this is an album that will make you stay up late, playing each song over and over, trying to answer the questions it stirs up.”Melissa Maerz, EW.com

“Its lyrics could be sketching out a dream, a recollection or a fantasy; whatever, it is hopelessly romantic, lyrically deft and one of the very best in a career not lacking for high points. Miss Apple, it is a pleasure to have you back.”James Skinner, BBC.co.uk
