This month, the Fiona Apple album Tidal is on sale for only $5 in MP3 format.
Tidal marks the 1996 debut of notorious wild child Fiona Apple. Although just 17 when she recorded it, Tidal betrayed a depth and sensitivity far beyond her youth, establishing her as a singer-songwriting force to be reckoned with, and would set her light years above pop rock peers like Jewel (who sounded like she was reciting from her 10th grade poetry class).
Songs like “Sleep to Dream,” “Criminal,” and “The First Taste” were expressions of Apple’s primal, angry — even sexual side, while with tracks like “Never Is a Promise,” “Sullen Girl,” and “The Child is Gone” Apple dragged us to the depths of her desolation. Tidal would go on to reach triple platinum status, be named one of the best albums of the nineties, and launch the mercurial career of an emotionally troubled artist who would continue to transform her pain (and pleasures) into song for our appreciation.
