i have honestly never heard a song that sounded like it was made just for me. hot knife ripped my brain apart and spoke directly to my soul on so many levels, which is crazy, because it's a fairly simple song (2 instruments, lyrical snippets). i've always been a casual fan of layered vocals, but something about the use here really affected me. i wish i could say that this is a comical or ironic review (ripped my brain apart? c'mon), but it is all true. hot knife really changed me somehow.

Fiona's voice layered and looped over itself, with drum and some transitory piano. The phrases she sings are so well chosen: there's a long sinuous melody ("cinemascope screen"), a long rhythmic but melodically flat part ("never need another"), some shorter melodies that curl up and down ("you can relax" "teach me/teach him")--when they finally build up, it's symphonic. Some of her singing has the shout of gospel in it, and some of the lyrics reach back to another time ("genesis rhythm" and "feisty"--who says "feisty" anymore?) You can listen to it and focus on the words, or let it the voices just wash over you as music. At the very end, it seemed a bit too compressed, but I think that's because I was listening on crappy computer speakers. Looking forward to hearing it on a good system. I'm stunned. Well done, Ms. Apple.

this song is #12 on Rolling Stone magazines list of the 50 best songs of 2012.Yet another good comeback of that year from the Bad Bad girl feeling like a criminal who probably holds the Guinness record for longest album titles.This one seems to go in a totally different direction than 'Extraordinary Machine', sounding much more like a tribal War chant.

This sounds a lot like "pick a bale of cotton" by Leadbelly. Great song though....whoever thought of it first. :)
