Extraordinary Machine, Fiona Apple’s third full-length, came on the heels of the songwriter’s six-year hiatus, and the 2005 release had its share of issues. But what came out at the other end of label disputes, mp3 leaks, and reported re-writes is a brilliant pop album widely recognized as Apple’s finest work. After 2011 2LP 180g reissue, the album has been repressed with the same specs by Plain Recordings, and tracks like “Extraordinary Machine,” “Get Him Back,” Please Please Please,” and “Waltz (Better Than Fine)” are still full of the eloquence, originality and timelessness that we’ve come to associate Fiona Apple with.
