I'll do this in the form of a song by song breakdown:

EM - pretty much the same. the minor vocal tweaks aren't enough to sway me in either direction

Get Him Back - about 100x better on the new one. less cheesy, way more rockin'. great opener at her show too

O' Sailor - better on the new one. the drumming makes the song.

Better Version of Me - BUTCHERED. i'm still pissed about this....but not as pissed as I am about...

Tymps - WHAT THE FUCK. this song was amazing. one of my all-time favorite fiona tunes. and now it's just weird. it's ok...but it was so good before. blargh

Window - this one might be a draw. i like 'em both

Oh Well - the new one's nice...but eh. i really like the strings on the old one, and it seems to have a....fuller? sound. i dunno.

Please Please Please - i don't like whatever the piano was buried under in the new one.

Red Red Red - i'd completely forgotten that the old version is actually really catchy. the new one is something i have to be in the mood for. low point of the show i saw too.

Not About Love - at first, I was upset that they took the strings out and that the drums were just so fucking weird in the first verse...but it's so awesome. they're so different...hard for me to choose a favorite.

Waltz - they're the same, right?


so uh. i guess the old one wins. I should throw all the good shit together and just stop bitching.

and yeah...that was done pretty much for my own benefit. but feel free to weigh in. or tell me i'm a retard.

you're a retard, because you listen to Fiona Apple.

this begs the question, are you a chicken man or an egg man?

I like the original version better though I'm just happy the album came out at all.

I haven't heard the final version either. I like it though, I don't think I'd bother trying to get the cd.
