Fiona Apple - Extraordinary Machine

Since I had a bootleg of the original version of Fiona Apple's recently released Extraordinary Machine, I anticipated listening to the two together. I have only listened to the album once but I can say this - the two versions are very different. The same songs - just produced with a different hand.

My first impression is that I miss some of the quirkiness of the original. This version seems to have a lot more going on in it - more instruments, sounds, effects. The original seemed simpler. It may just take me getting used to it.

One note - I downloaded the original, and paid for the release version; that's the way it should be.
