How are you liking Fiona Apple's highly anticipated new album, Fetch the Bolt Cutters, which came out at midnight, so far? I love it, and Pitchfork does too; they gave it a rare perfect 10, their first time awarding the score in nearly a decade, since they gave it to Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy in November of 2010. Here's an excerpt of Jenn Pelly's review:

Fetch the Bolt Cutters can threaten the status quo and it can be outrageously funny, often at once. The long-reigning queen of self-isolation proclaims, “I told you I didn’t want to go to this dinner,” to open a song called “Under the Table,” as in: “Kick me under the table all you want/I won’t shut up.” “Rack of His” turns the experience of, well, getting played by a musician, into something hysterically subversive: “Check out that rack of his/Look at that row of guitar necks,” she daydreams, before cutting to the quick: “I thought you would wail on me like you wail on them.” And on “Relay,” after listing off a series of things she resents about an ex, she offers a critique of our hyper-socially-mediated world so savage it practically demands a standing ovation: “I resent you for presenting your life like a fucking propaganda brochure.” With her humor comes a playfulness that is still genuinely disarming to hear from a woman who wrote a song about herself and titled it “Sullen Girl.”

Read the rest here, and stay tuned for our review, which is coming on Monday.
