He's just playing coy, Cobbler. We saw Jimmy Buffett at the very same theater just a few weeks go. BVS is a closet parrothead.

Finally paid close attention to the lyrics of Anything We Want. I'm willing to call it my favorite on the album now. It's like Wouldn't It Be Nice injected with realism.

Werewolf and Daredevil are two others that really get me going, but there are more than those besides.

One listen so far, and I liked it a lot.

The album finishes STRONG. And I would have loved Hot Knife anyway, but reading about how her and her sister did those vocals gives me an extra appreciation. Brilliant.

I almost wish Hot Knife were the opener; it gets me all fired up and, then yeah, that's it. I can imagine Hot Knife into Daredevil being a badass start to the album.

But then I like it as a closer because I immediately want to play the album over again.

Details?

I just assumed it was overdubs.

I assume he's referring to this, from the article/journalistic abomination posted a page back:

Quote:
I wanted to know about “Hot Knife,” the album’s last track. They both smiled. Though, like all her songs, it had come in a moment of total dissociation, its roots were probably in a Bach concert she’d seen in New York, and the Supremes song “Where Did Our Love Go?,” the place where two lines of music “crack together,” which had always given her “huge satisfaction.” Charley — whose genius as a producer, it seemed, was to fade away — had given her the mallets to softly strike the rhythm on the timpani. He’d said, “You need to say something on the piano,” so she made a waving, malevolent line in the background. And then there were the voices: hers and, later, in an incredible melodic round, her sister Maude’s. There was no looping or Auto-Tune; for hours they’d stood at the same microphone, weaving their voices in what she called “the most intimate moment of our lives together.”

Yep.

And LM, I see what you're saying, but for an album that can be heavy emotionally/psychologically, I actually prefer that it ends on something lighthearted, with a vibe of hopeful infatuation. Especially considering how most listeners of this artist are "rooting" for her happiness.

And as you said, it makes you want to begin the album again.

I assumed it was overdubs too . . .

To paraphrase an Atease post (I know, I know), Hot Knife is 'what TuneYards would sound like if she was good.' I can't say I disagree with that statement.

Her sister sings sometimes at the Algonquin in NYC, I went to see her once.

Also, no song has ever filled me with more delirious joy than Hot Knife.

No news in this bump, I'm just wondering if this album has grown on you guys. Me, I'm head over heels in love with it. I'm having a similar situation with Fiona that I had with Kanye when MBDTF came out; I went in with one album as an undisputed favorite (in Fiona's case, When the Pawn) and now I'm not sure at all. I realize it's not an album for everyone, but Idler Wheel is so intimate and honest. It's up there with Plastic Ono Band. To me, it represents everything the singer-songwriter genre is meant to at its best.

At Barnes and Noble, they have a Fiona Apple display with all of her albums, and when I saw it, I was amazed by her consistency. She really is one of my favorite artists.
