Music Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Rolling Stone (11/25/99, pp.97-8) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...richer, deeper and stronger than TIDAL [Apple's 1st record] in every way....Apple bears down on her voice and piano with enough rock command to produce some truly fine songs..."

Spin (12/99, p.215) - 8 out of 10 - "...a breakthrough and even more fun....Finding a groove that rocks, swings, and occasionally hip-hops lets Fiona concentrate on emoting, which she does in full-on mock seriousness. The results are delicious..."

Entertainment Weekly (11/12/99, pp.77-8) - "...consistent, rhythmic and forceful....[taking] chances that continually pay off....PAWN is the work of an original, albeit a developing one....genuinely inspiring..." - Rating: A

Q (3/00, p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...a handsome record, well worth perservering with and a massive step forward....Part Jewel-with-tunes, part Tori-Amos-without-kookiness...fueled by Apple's own stomping piano, is unafriad of a soaring chorus to complememt the angular verses..."

Uncut (3/00, p.82) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...WHEN THE PAWN is a bold, brave and bruised album of searing intensity and disarming honesty - part poetry, part therapy and wholly brilliant..."

Alternative Press (12/99, p.86) - 3 out of 5 - "...a solid effort that expands beyond the angsty-woman-with-piano label....musically Apple proves to be wise beyond her years....a cohesive album rife with jazz sensibilities..."

CMJ (11/29/99, p.3) - "...even more sure of her weighty insecurities. The arrangements...are equally rich....filled with confidence..."

Vibe (12/99, p.257) - "...With her sturdy, two-fisted piano playing and a voice that belies her relative youth, Apple unfurls deceptively up-tempo tracks that make pain and guilt seem like perfect pop fodder..."

Mojo (Publisher) (3/00, p.103) - "...a more muscular, richer affair that finds Ms Apple displaying a far broader emotional range....proving that Apple is following a compelling progression that so many of her compatriots have failed to chart..."
