Bust the deal, face the wheel.

Everything is making me thirsty.

Bittersweet Symphony - J Dilla's final word is too profound for just one review

"It sounds unfinished, and I guess that's the saddest thing. You get engrossed in the brassy, funky "Love Jones" and then it's over, a minute of inspiration left looking for an emcee."

In the Flesh: Fiona Apple, Aug. 9, 2006, State Theatre, Detroit

"Voyeuristic is right on, particularly because she doesn't hesitate to writhe. I couldn't help but smirk a little at times, because we've been conditioned to think that, when performers make moves like that, they're usually the goofy theater-major performance-art types. You know "I'm so into this, watch me urinate on my shoe and dance a jig." But with Fiona I felt like that's truly her live style, and she doesn't give a shit or maybe even know what people think of it."

Scavenger Quartet - We Live on Land (Acidsoxx)

"[Scavenger Quartet] are interested in the shifty place where instruments meet what were formerly non-instruments; they like to exist between description."
