The longest album title of the year - probably is from Fiona Apple and it's "The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than The Driver Of The Screw And Whipping Chords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do" and it's on Epic, and should inspire all the neurotic chicks all dressed in black to rise from the depths of dastardly debilitating depression to rally all the way up to a frown because their sad heroine has a new one. Clearly a talent, but Fiona is so jazzy and spacey she remains the poster girl for that dreaded We Have To Talk moment. An Apple a day keeps the Fast Forward button in play and "Left Alone" just does not work for me at all.
