Fiona Apple mesmerizes on Fetch The Bolt Cutters

Praise for Fiona Apple's fifth full-length album Fetch The Bolt Cutters has been coming from all quarters since its release. Its Metacritic score is a heady 100 — the site aggregates critics' reviews into average scores out of 100 — and the 23 critics cited reflected on the album's brilliance. On a purely musical level, writes Seth Wilson for Slant Magazine, "'s a bold experiment in pop craft, a collection of songs on which Apple stretches her talents in adventurous new directions. ... Fetch the Bolt Cutters is Apple's most timely-and timeless-effort yet."

Ellen Johnson, writing in Paste Magazine, says the album is eerily clairvoyant and brash in the most extraordinary way. "Fetch the Bolt Cutters is exactly what so many expected it to be: brilliant. ... Fiona Apple can do with a piano, a handful of percussive items and her urgent voice what some could only hope to do with an entire orchestra."

Fetch The Bolt Cutters was self-produced and features contributions from Davíd Garza, Sebastian Steinberg, and Amy Aileen Wood.

"Fiona Apple's fifth record is unbound. No music has ever sounded quite like it. Apple recorded Fetch the Bolt Cutters both in and with her Venice Beach home, banging on its walls, stomping on its ground. Self-reliance is its rule, curiosity is its key. Fetch the Bolt Cutters seems to almost completely turn the volume down on music history, while it cranks up raw, real life-handclaps, chants, and other makeshift percussion, in harmony with space, echoes, whispers, screams, breathing, jokes, so-called mistakes, and dog barks. (At least five dogs are credited: Mercy, Maddie, Leo, Little, and Alfie.) All of this debris orbits around the core of Apple's music: her voice, her piano, and most of all her words, which have always been her primary instrument. It creates a wild symphony of the everyday." — Pitchfork
