Why Sasha Frere-Jones is the best, part 376,478.

In the flurry of all the Fiona Apple/Extraordinary Machine press, he sits down with her and gets a pretty clear picture of what actually happened re: the shelving drama and subsequent re-recording. And you gotta love this one-two punch:

SFJ: The second record—I’m curious if you actually can say the whole title.

FA: I could: “When the Pawn Hits the Conflicts He Thinks Like a King What He Knows Throws the Blows When He Goes to the Fight And He'll Win the Whole Thing 'Fore He Enters the Ring There's No Body to Batter When Your Mind Is Your Might So When You Go Solo You Hold Your Own Hand and Remember That Depth Is the Greatest Of Heights and If You Know Where You Stand Then You Know Where to Land And if You Fall It Won't Matter Cuz You'll Know That You're Right.”

SFJ: Apparently you can also play Schubert.
