First Album since 2012: Fiona Apple fails once again to yourself, Lionel Deluy/Sony Music /dpa US singer Fiona Apple

Saturday, 25. April, 09.12 PM: it is one of the most talented Pop music of her Generation, so of the year today, around 40. And yet Fiona Apple had brought it since her acclaimed debut “Tidal” 1996 so far only on four albums. The US-American from New York City was always seen as a difficult case: Mental and health problems or even conflicts in the music business prevented the pianist and singer was able to use your full creative potential.

Now, the 42-Year-old presents somewhat in the short term, “Fetch The Bolt Cutters”, their first Studio album since 2012. “The plate should actually be millions of years ago, it’s ready,” Apple had said in the previous September. “And then I start and just need a lot of to long to get things complete.”

As so often with works that are expected with a particular voltage, you have to make on a certain amount of disillusionment in focus. Some of the 13 new songs come indeed to the class of the masterpieces “When the Pawn…” (1999) and “Extraordinary Machine” (2005). And with her powerful piano-Sound, bollerndem Bass, metallic clanging drums and some other great effects (such as the jazzy steel drums in “the Rack Of His” sound) is produced, the fifth Apple plate also impressive.

And yet, one wishes that this with a limitless powerful Soul – and Jazz-voice-blessed Singer-songwriter is often times the easier way. Also on “Fetch The Bolt Cutters” sounds like some piece of arg raw, frayed, bulky – although you could certainly write equally accessible and ambitious songs. But somehow this idiosyncratic artist don’t want that. So Fiona Apple is likely to remain a case for the Initiated – for the big audience their music is this time is not supple enough.
